Ron Paul’s Words: Opposes Israel as Aggressors; Israel’s Arabs their Victims

Ron Paul on Gaza, “To me, I look at it like a concentration camp and people are making homemade bombs, and like they’re the aggressors?”

Paul went on to decry America’s support of Israel over the Arab League nations and lets slip his personal opinion that Israel is essentially the villain and that “Palestinians” are their victims.

Ron Paul at 2:04 in the recording, emphasis added:

You know, if Israel has a problem that they have to deal with, I don’t think it should be any of our business. It’s just that it’s our business and we will be blamed because we support Israel blindly, so, and we give them the money and we give them the weapons. That should be the contention that we approach here and Congress should know about and the American People should know about. And then, if I personally favor one side or the other side, it’s really pretty academic, because politically, I don’t want to be involved. I want to say ‘Well, you know I think the Palestinians have been ripped off and therefore all the blame is on Israel,” I’ve sort of stepped in a little bit more than I want to. I can have a personal opinion but politically, my position is that America would be much better off we we just minded our own business and of course I always tie this into the financial calamity that our foreign policy creates.

  1. Any real American ought to oppose that foreign, socialist ethnocracy created by the UN that has a history of attacking and betraying us. Weren’t they caught for a second time selling our Patriot missiles to China? How about Pollard? The USS Liberty? Anyone who supports this welfare state that costs Americans a fortune has very suspect motives indeed.

  2. Now the Lord said to Abraham (His people)

    Go forth from your country, And from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you;

    And I will make you a great nation.

    And I will bless you and make you great.

    And so you shall be a blessing.

    And I will bless those (The United States of America) who bless you;

    And the one who curses you I will curse.

    And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. Genesis 12: 1-4


    1. Not the same Israel – that was a different people thousands of years ago. You don’t get modern Rome and the Ancient Roman Empire confused, do you? The former was mentioned in the Bible, too. Rev 3:9 – get the picture?

      1. So then who, Alex, is this “New” Israel if the “Old” Israel is not the Israel of today? And don’t tell me about the whole Ashkenazi Jew thing, Jews from Eastern Europe who populated the “New” Israel of the Balfour Declaration of 1948. When immigrants come here to the U.S. and go through citizenship classes, take the oath of citizenship and become citizens, are they any less American than you or I? I understand the argument of ancient Hebrew Jew versus European Jewry, but is that even a valid argument? When the Lord said that He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel, what Israel was he talking about, some “new” Israel? If so, please tell me what “new” Israel you’re talking about.

        Just as I don’t agree with everything my country (which is the U.S.) does, so do I not agree with everything Israel does. But this does not mean that I will arbitrarily turn my back on the Jews. And if the Palestinians are an issue, forget it. All the other Arab nations turned their backs on their brother and sister Muslims and refused to allow them access to their countries. Anyway, Arabs are treated as full citizens in Israel, with voting rights, security, and full citizenship. The Palestinian issue is a non-starter.

        As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord. And that includes blessing and praying for Israel.
