Rand Paul's Fans Shocked by New Revelations


By Michael Collins Piper


.The victory of Dr. Rand Paul—son of highly regarded Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas)—in the GOP Senate primary in Kentucky may not be the signal of populist change at all. Instead, just days after Paul’s widely publicized triumph over a traditional “mainstream conservative,” it has now been revealed that the younger Paul—very much unlike his father—is a fervent supporter of the strident hard-line “neo-conservative” outlook toward U.S. Middle East policy.
This news came as very much a shock to Paul’s supporters around the country, who believed (incorrectly it appears) that Paul shared his father’s hallmark longtime advocacy of U.S. neutrality and opposition to international meddling.
The truth about young Paul’s position, which could be referred to as “militant Zionist,” was quietly unveiled just at the time when the mass media in America was devoting much time to a controversy surrounding the newly nominated Senate candidate’s remarks about civil rights legislation that were perceived to be hostile to minority interests.
So although the general public was treated to the concept that Paul’s views may be hostile, legislatively, to minorities vis-à-vis racial issues, those minority groups that support Israel have no problem with Paul’s stance in favor of the entire agenda of the pro-Israel lobby inWashington.
Although both pro-Israel groups and critics of Israeli treatment of the Christians and Muslims of Palestine were quickly assessing the new discovery regarding Paul’s heretofore largely unknown views regarding Middle East policy, little, if anything, has been remarked about the subject by the major print and broadcast media.
Paul’s formal position paper titled “The United States Special Relationship with Israel,” was apparently released to the pro-Israel lobby by Paul’s campaign and was then leaked to a very limited circle of pro- Israel elements in the media.
The tone of the paper is such that it could easily have been crafted by zealots operating in and around the tightly knit longtime pro-Israel “neo-conservative” clique of Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Stephen Bryen and Douglas Feith—all of whom, at one time or another, have been investigated by the FBI on suspicions of espionage on behalf of Israel.
To assure readers that AMERICAN FREE PRESS is not overstating the matter regarding the rhetoric employed by Paul, we herewith present the entire text, unedited in any way, of Paul’s position paper. (See page 13.)
Although the elder Paul left the 2008 presidential campaign promising to work toward electing Ron- Paul-style Republicans to Congress and offices across the land, the kind of rhetoric emanating from Rand Paul does not sound like he’s a “Ron Paul Republican” at all.

Dr. Rand Paul


Israel and the United States have a special relationship. With our shared history and common values, the American and Israeli people have formed a bond that unites us across the many thousands of miles between our countries and calls us to work together towards peace and prosperity for our countries.
The free trade agreement that has existed, and been subsequently strengthened, between our countries since 1985 is a tremendous mutual benefit. As a United States Senator, I would work against the growing protectionist sentiment in our country and defend free trade with Israel.
I would never vote to place trade restrictions on Israel, and I would filibuster any attempts to place sanctions on Israel or tariffs on any Israeli goods.
The issue of Palestine is incredibly difficult and complex. The entire world wishes for peace in the region, but any arrangement or treaty must come from Israel, when she is ready and when her conditions have been met.
I strongly object to the arrogant approach of the Obama administration, itself a continuation of the failures of past U.S. administrations, as they push Israel to make security concessions behind thinly veiled threats.
Only Israel can decide what is in her security interest, not America and certainly not the United Nations. Friends do not coerce friends to trade land for peace, or to give up the vital security interests of their people.
As a United States Senator, I would never vote to condemn Israel for defending herself.
Whether it is fighting Hezbollah in Lebanon, combating Hamas-linked terrorists in Gaza or dealing with potential nuclear threats in the Persian Gulf, Israeli military actions are completely up to the leaders and military of Israel, and Israel alone.
It is not the place of outsiders to meddle or pass judgment or to use our power or relationship to force Israel to go against her own interest for the sake of “peace.”
Peace is a laudable goal. But it is just that—a goal. It is not an end at any cost.
It makes no sense to me that the United States provides Arab countries hostile to Israel with $12 billion in annual financial and military aid. Many of the weapons that Israel would face in a Middle Eastern conflict would have come directly from our government. I find this appalling. In the Senate, I would strive to eliminate all aid to countries that threaten Israel.
Finally, Iran has become increasingly bellicose towards Israel. Thankfully, Israel has one of the bravest, most elite military forces in the world. I would never vote to prevent Israel from taking any military action her leaders felt necessary to end any Iranian threat.
Just as the United States would not follow the will of another country in the face of our national security, we shall not limit the options of Israel in this area.
Finally, I believe the United States should increase the pressure on Iran. I would mandate that all publicly managed investment funds divest from Iran immediately.
We should not be subsidizing any company that does business with Iran, and we should not allow U.S. companies or those with funds from U.S. taxpayers to enrich Iran through its national energy program. I would fight to end all subsides [sic] to American corporations that do business with Iran, including so-called renewable energy companies that work through Brazil to provide support to Iran and empower its dictators’dangerous nuclear saber rattling.
