Jewish Democrats Slam GOP for Ron Paul Tribute, Jewish Republicans Slam Dems for Carter Speech

Jewish Democrats slammed Republicans for planning a tribute to Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) at the Republican convention.

In a press call Friday, a top aide to Rommey confirmed that there would be a prime time video tribute to Paul.

“Paying tribute to this man who disparaged the U.S.-Israel relationship on Iranian television and empathized with Iran’s nuclear weapons program – on top of the history of his hate-filled newsletters – is a national disgrace,” the National Jewish Democratic Council said in a statement. “Romney and the RNC should cancel the tribute and end this dangerous strategic partnership once and for all.” The RNC refers to the Republican National Committee.

Matt Brooks, the director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, said the video tribute was a “small price to pay” for denying Ron Paul a convention speech, and his delegates the opportunity to vote for him – agreements that the Romney campaign apparently extracted in exchange for the tribute.

Brooks had criticized Democrats for assigning a prime time convention speaking spot to former President Jimmy Carter, who has offended Jewish groups with his warnings that Israel’s West Bank policies could culminate in an apartheid state.

Paul, a libertarian who this year sought the GOP presidential nomination, has opposed foreign assistance, including to Israel, and has criticized multiple administrations, including that of President Obama, for what he describes as an overly militant posture in the Middle East.

In the 1980s and 1990s, he also published eponymous financial advice newsletters that mined racist, anti-homosexual and anti-Semitic tropes, although he now insists that he did not vet everything in the publications, and blames past associates for the offensive material.

The Romney aide, in the call, said Paul’s showing during the primaries merited the tribute.

“Gov. Romney and Rep. Paul, while they certainly disagree on many issues … they’ve always had – if you watched part of the debates this year, you’ve have seen there’s a lot of mutual respect between the two of them,” Russ Schriefer was quoted by Talking Points Memo as saying. “And so Rep. Paul’s people came to us and said they’d like to do a short tribute to him, and we said absolutely, it would be a good time to do that.”

Paul and Romney generally avoided attacking each other during the campaign, and other contenders accused the two of forging an alliance to marginalize opponents to Romney, in exchange for guaranteeing Paul and his son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) greater influence within the party.

The younger Paul, who also backs cutting off foreign assistance, including to Israel, and who will have a convention speaking role, has otherwise avoided the incendiary statements that have marked his father’s career.

    "My friends, you don’t need to do nation building in Israel. We’re already built. You don’t need to export democracy to Israel. We’ve already got it. You don’t need to send American troops to defend Israel. We defend ourselves" ~ Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel. Sounds to me like the Prime Minister agrees with Ron Paul…

  6. Anonymous says:

    Zionists who get to publicly speak for ALL Jewish people make me sick! If I was Jewish, I'd be outraged by this! It's no better or different than the Muslim Brotherhood getting to speak for ALL Muslims. It's utter B.S. INTELLIGENT and informed Jewish people know that Ron Paul is the best Presidential candidate for America. War/Hate mongering Zionists has no reason or fact to back their wild accusations.

    Saul Davis Go back to your misled hate, you fool.

    Not everything revolves around the Jewish people.

  9. Sharyn E. Zaslofsky says:

    How can you blame Israel for 9/11 ? If there is shame, I am ashamed that a Jew would make such an anti-Israel remark. YOU should be ashamed.
