While many may have the idea that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is “weak” in his support for the settler state of Israel, news emerging from Capitol Hill should put to rest any doubts as to where Paul’s true allegiances lie.
This is because Rand Paul has announced that he plans to introduce a new bill that will suspend U.S. aid to the Palestinians unless the Palestinian authorities publicly recognize Israel’s right to exist and declare a ceasefire with Israel.
Paul’s bill, if passed, would allow the Palestinian leaders five weeks to publicly declare Israel’s right to exist as well as initiate and declare the ceasefire. Failure of the Palestinian authorities to comply would result in the suspension of the annual $400 million in aid provided to the Palestinians by the United States.
The bill is largely seen as a reaction to the recent reconciliation between Fatah, which is led by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas, the largely Islamist organization that governs the Gaza Strip.
In regards to the proposed bill, Paul stated, “Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with an entity that does not believe it should exist, and has used terrorist tactics to seek its end.”
Paul made no mention of the historical terrorism of Israeli organizations like the Irgun or the present day genocide that takes place every day.
Paul also stated that, if the Palestinians agree to the terms, the regional peace talks “can move forward with two willing partners.”
Despite the hysterical rantings of AIPAC, the Israel lobby, and Zionist Christians, Rand Paul has expressed his loyalty to the non-State of Israel in the past. It should be remembered that Paul paid a visit to Israel in 2013 at the behest of Zionist Christian Evangelical leaders and the relevant lobbyists. Upon his return to the United States, Paul told Breitbart News “Absolutely we stand with Israel. What I think we should do is announce to the world — and I think it is pretty well known — that any attack on Israel will be treated as an attack on the United States.”
Paul’s reputation as a weak supporter of the settler state is entirely unfair and only comes as a result of the fact that anything save rabid warmongering and Israel worship is considered “weak support” by Israel and its operatives.
