Stop with the lies and misinformation, Paulbots sneer –Ron Paul has nothing against Israel, in fact, he really loves Israel.
— Except when he’s saying things like, “the Palestinians have been ripped off and all of the blame is on Israel”.
In this incredible interview he gave to the Iranian state owned English language propaganda channel, Press TV in January of 2009, he said that, and much more. Paul said he favored ending the United States’ special relationship with Israel because if Israel has a problem it should have to deal with by itself, and it shouldn’t be any of our business.
“If I personally favor one side over the other side, it’s really pretty academic, because politically I don’t want to be involved.”
Paul called Gaza essentially a “concentration camp” where they (read Hamas) defend themselves with homemade bombs, “like they’re the aggressors?”
“If I say the Palestinians have been ripped off and all of the blame is on Israel, then I’ve sort of stepped in a little more than I want to…”
He stepped in it, all right.
