'Ron Paul wishes Israel didn't exist'

DOODAD

No wonder some Kossacks like this guy.

"Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul negates Israel's right to exist, Eric Dondero, who served as a senior aide to the 76-year-old Texas congressman for over 12 years, said on Monday.

In a blog posted in Rightwing News, Dondero said that while Paul was, in his opinion, neither a racist nor an anti-Semite, he is very much anti-Israel...according to Dondero, the elderly congressman "wishes the Israeli state did not exist at all."

The congressman's former aide insists in his blog that Paul expressed the controversial sentiment "numerous times in our private conversations." Paul's view, he said, "is that Israel is more trouble than it is worth, specifically to the America taxpayer. He sides with the Palestinians, and supports their calls for the abolishment of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs."

No surprises here. Sounds like many a Kossack we have heard from over the years.

UPDATE

Link to original article where Paul is described as believing:

"he strenuously does not believe the United States had any business getting involved in fighting Hitler in WWII. He expressed to me countless times, that “saving the Jews,” was absolutely none of our business."

    A) Ron Paul is a (Henry-Ford-legacy-type (racist anti-Jewish) Conservative) Libertarian. Ron Paul is not supported by most mainstream Conservative Republicans, and is opposed by most mainstream Conservative Republicans.

    B) One object having a certain characteristic does not exclude any other object from having that characteristic. One social-political group having the quality of being racist anti-Jewish does not mean that another social-political group cannot have the quality of being racist anti-Jewish.

  4. No surprise the right has scumbags like him. Generally though he is an outlier in the movement.

  5. Jeez, fizziks, its not like the libertarians and progressives are playing anti-Semitic anti-Zionist tag.

    What I do not understand is the reluctance to face this uncomfortable truth about the progressive-left.

  6. Another thing that I do not understand is why any Jew who cares about Israel would vote for a president who validates Palestinian anti-Semitism by agreeing with them that Jews should not live here or there or supports a movement that, itself, supports anti-Zionism?

    It's just not rational.

  8. Amazingly (or perhaps, naturally) Ron Paul gets defended by some Kossacks in Volleyball's new dKos diary.
