I realize that Rand is playing the game, but this is tough to read. As someone who has studied the conflict in depth it is hard to read Rand say that the Palestinians utilize terrorist attacks (which is undeniably true) while not mentioning Israel's far greater and more cruel terrorist attacks against the Palestinians. I guess this is what it takes to win the Presidency, but at what cost to our principle? The Palestinian people face immense suffering every day, and this just seems to be another slap in their face to call them out when others commit atrocities in greater number (i.e. Israel, NATO, etc.). A better policy position would be to demand foreign aid to no countries including Israel because foreign aid usually does nothing to help starving people, and is often used for war-making purposes.
