Let Israel Mind Their Own Business
This was the crux of Ron Paul’s response in last night’s foreign policy debate. To me, one of the strangest scenes was to hear Paul Wolfowitz ask a question and then Ron Paul quote Wolfowitz in response to another question in foreign policy. This may not mean much, but since I have been following Paul’s speeches and books for years, Paul has often quoted Wolfowitz in support of his position that terrorists act in response to the U.S. government’s invading Islamic holy sites.
Wolf Blitzer asked the candidates if they would support Israel if Israel decided to bomb Iran. All of the candidates gave some variation of a “yes” answer, while Paul clearly demonstrated his unique perspective in foreign policy questions. Israel is quite capable of protecting themselves. The reality, as Dr. Paul affirmed, is that U.S. involvement in Israel’s foreign affairs leaves them more vulnerable.
