Ron Paul, Evangelicals, Jerusalem, the American Embassy, and anti-Zionists

The Ron Paul blimp.

Jeremy Hammond laments what he calls a “change” in Ron Paul‘s position toward Israel, when he told some Christian leaders he could support a move of the American embassy to Jerusalem because that’s what Israel wants, pointing out that the U.S. would not like it if other nations suddenly declared they were moving their embassies to New York or somewhere else.

But that’s because he doesn’t understand Ron Paul and he doesn’t have a sufficiently “rational” or “objective” view about just one of the issues that relates to Israel. It looks like he just links up with anything that the Controlled Media tells him is “anti-Zionist” and doesn’t like anything else.

But he does temper the hit at the end with the recognition of his position on foreign aid.

Paul first made this position known Wednesday night, during a private meeting with evangelical leaders interested in helping the Texas Congressman reach out to the conservative Christian community.

According to a transcript of the meeting obtained by Business Insider, the leaders started off the meeting by asking Paul whether he would sign an Executive Order to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a major policy objective for Israeli hardliners and many leaders in the Christian Right.

“The real issue here is not what America wants, but what does Israel want,” Paul told evangelical leaders, according to a transcript of the meeting obtained by Business Insider. “If Israel wants their capital to be Jerusalem, then the United States should honor that.” 

“How would we like it if some other nation said ‘We decided to recognize New York City as your capital instead, so we will build our embassy there?’” he added. 

Even Paul’s senior campaign aides were surprised by his response.

“We were floored,” senior advisor Doug Wead told Business Insider. “It sounds like pure Ron Paul, but it still caught us off guard…If someone would have asked him that in a national debate, I suppose it would have popped right out, but nobody did!”

Ron Paul’s position is PERFECTLY consistent with previous views NOT a change, Zionist anti-Paul propaganda notwithstanding. While what you are saying is true of the history of the ethnic cleansing that took place at the hand of the Irgun and the Stern Gang, the United States should not be telling the world what to do, but to recognize the de facto reality is another story. Should the United States move its embassy from Beijing to Taipei? Should it move its embassy

He was also recorded in an interview saying he thought the conditions in the Gaza Strip were comparable to those of a concentration camp, and he has been obviously rejected by most hard-line Zionists while some have become enthusiastic over his emphasis on letting Israel determine its own course, and ending the practice by American presidents of telling them what to do.

You expose the bankruptcy of your own grasp of the situation, so gullible, by appealing to one declaration after another of the United Nations, and not because they have denounced Israel, though some of those declarations equating Zionism with human rights abuses expose the hypocrisy of the nations that stone women for adultery (but not the men) and cut the hands of thieves and put Muslims who embrace Jesus Christ in prison.

The United Nations condemned Honduras for defending itself against a presidential auto-coup by one dictator Manuel Zelaya, who instead of dissolving Congress simply ignored them, and instead of dissolving the courts said he didn’t have to obey any “juecesitos” (“pipsqueak judges”), and took international money for the poor and paid off politicians to support his fraudulent “survey” that would presumably consolidate his coup or get the UN to back his reinstatement.

Hypocrite anti-Yankee Zelaya in fact demanded that the gringos put him back in power after his constitutional removal. Take the UN and stuff it. It’s the infrastructure they’re using to build up the government of the oncoming world dictatorship.

The guy has proven consistent, there’s no reason to doubt him this time, instead of knee jerk reaction you forget this is the guy who will cut off official aid to Israel along with cutting off aid to every other country, THANK GOD finally, freeing nations of the corruption of foreign aid. And you KNOW he will work to do what he says, as he has been all along.
