Ron Paul: Gaza is like a concentration camp

There’s been a lot of discussion about Rep. Ron Paul’s views on foreign policy and, specifically, Israel.  With his performance yesterday in the Iowa caucuses, we thought you should see this interview he gave to Iranian state-owned Press TV in 2009 – during the height of Israel’s defensive incursion into Gaza, following years of rocket attacks against communities in the south of the Jewish state.

    Do you understand that the U.S. gives an exponentially greater amount of aid to Israel’s enemies. We “support” Israel, all the while causing more trouble for them by meddling in their affairs.

      Our government throws this so called “support” behind Israel solely so they can pressure her into making choices that benefit the U.S. and its military efforts. We have been “big brother” for too long

        It’s time the US gov. respect Israel’s sovereignty and let her make her own decisions. They don’t need our military/political support; they need our prayers and the support of individuals-not governme

    Nothing is more anti-semetic than Zionism. Arab’s are of semetic origin also. Free Palestine!

    Fools will destroy America with the current policy because they have no clue what really goes on with U.S./Israel governments and the propaganda they are being fed to keep them in ignorance. Very sad

    The US doesn’t need to go into more debt just to stand with Israel. Israel could wipe the map with Iran, so just let them do it. Stand for Israel by letting her stand for itself

    A President Paul would be “dangerous” to the well-being of, both, America AND Israel!

    Zechariah 2:7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwells with the daughter of Babylon.
    Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that touches you touches the apple of his eye.
    Zechariah 2:10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.

    Ezekiel 25:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it for the old hatred;
    Ezekiel 25:17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes, and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.

    Although we are Americans, the purpose of Stand for Israel is to publicly say,”NO!!!” when any part of the government does not stand with & for Israel. You are right that nobody knows which way G-d will bring about His plans to bring forth protection for Israel, but that does NOT mean we should stand silent when wrong is done by ans part of the government. How do you know that our voices are not what G-d will use to bring about deliverance?

    Ron Paul is dangerous and should not be our party’S nominee. He is anti Israel if not anti Semite.

    I am a conservative, evangelical christian and I am a firm supporter of Israel. Hamas and other terrorist have fired rockets into Israel for years with very little retalliation from the Jews. If this was the U. S. being rocketed, the cruise missles would be in the air within hours to put an end to this madness.

    thought Ron Paul was an ok guy, till i saw this clip about how he feels about Israel. No wonder the U.S. is in a mess when they can”t get anyone in office to stand with Israel. Does not the Bible say… “”I will bless those who bless you… and curse those who curse you??”" It”s alright though… because God is for Israel… and that”s all that really matters. Sure am glad though that i”m not in Rons shoes!!!

    Gaza is a concentration camp????? I think Ron Paul is a neo-nazi. What a dufus. For a US Congressman to have so little understanding of history and current events is a disgrace.

    Hard to believe that anyone hoping to lead the U.S. would throw Israel into the sea. That is the mantra of the Palastinians and anti-semites -
    Lookin the mirror, Mr. Paul- who do you see??

    One must assume Paul thinks if we allow the Arabs to destroy Israel the Arabs will no longer want to destroy America. Truth being God alone is preventing the Arabs from destroying Israel.

    If we abandon Israel, we are no better than the countries that that want to wipe Israel off the map.
    If we do abandon Israel, hang on to your waders the blood will run deep. You think it’s bad wait.

    Before you blame the Israelis, I would suggest you spend only one week in northen Israel and feel the pain and suffering they get from the rockets. After you spend that one week in Israel, then you can talk about how miserable the Arabs are

    Israel is no bigger than NJ and they are not even afforded that much land to live on in peace. Mr. Paul, if you dont even have the guts to stand up for our only mid-east allys then please go away.

    Michael Scheuer Endorses Ron Paul for President because of his Foreign Policy.

    Michael Scheuer is a twenty-plus-year CIA veteran. From 1996 to 1999, he served as the Chief of the bin Laden unit.

    Stop with the blame America.That’s Obama’s job. How do you all know what God is up to? Don’t you remember His promise? He would never again wipe out His creation.It’s liberal speak to hound and denigrate America. Don’t blame your own country for what despots do.

    The Bible tells us that Israel is God’s people. If we hate Israel, we hate God. If we love and support Israel, we will be blessed. God can save Israel and bring her enemies down.

      I said those things because I know that God loves Israel and I know we’ll be blessed if we help Israel and know that God will help even if we don’t.

A Fragile Peace

As we continue to pray for a lasting peace, one of our most critical tasks is to help Israel recover – to rebuild, to restore shattered lives, to comfort those who have lost loved ones or livelihoods. And none of this is possible without you who continue to stand by the Jewish people.
