Rand Paul to Visit Israel

By: JTA

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a skeptic of assistance to Israel who also is considering a 2016 presidential run, will travel to Israel.

According to a report Friday on the Christian Broadcasting Network website, Paul will be accompanied by Christian and Jewish leaders, and will also visit Jordan.

He will meet with leaders in both countries, as well as Palestinian leaders.

The trip is organized by David Lane, a “prominent evangelical activist,” according to CBN, and will include Republicans from Iowa, the critical first caucus state in the primaries.

Paul has backed eliminating foreign aid, including to Israel, but unlike his father, rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), who has run for the presidency in the past, he has refrained from using Israel-critical rhetoric, instead framing his opposition to aid as bolstering his policy that Israel should remain free of outside influence.

Paul has attracted conservative grassroots attention because of his budget-slashing rhetoric, but his opposition to Israel assistance has been as an impediment to winning over the party base.

    What "Israel-critical rhetoric" has Ron Paul used?

  2. Anonymous says:

    Referring to Gaza as a concentration camp, and stating that U.S. support of Israel is the cause of the conflict. In fact, it is U.S. support of both sides that fuels the conflict. Neither side can win because the U.S. is aiding both sides, and benefiting from the chaos.

    P.S. I am a Pro-Israel Ron Paul supporter.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Rand Paul's position is the most truly Pro-Israel position, and the Zionist camp should get behind him. If the U.S. stopped aiding all parties to the conflict (that includes Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, PA etc) the clear winner would be Israel. The U.S. would no longer have the clout it has today, and though it may initially spark a regional war (which is inevitable regardless), the result will be a decisive win for Israel, and true sovereignty for the Jewish state.
