Rand Paul's Fans Shocked by New Revelations
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.)
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.

Israel, and I would filibuster any attempts to place

makes no sense to me that the United States provides
Arab countries hostile to Israel with $12 billion
