Video: Ron Paul does interview with Iran's Press TV, bashes Israel, defends Hamas

On Jan 5 2009 Ron Paul conducted an interview with Iranian state owned English language propaganda channel, Press TV, where he urges ending support of Israel, defends Hamas and tactics of suicide bombing, states that Hamas is innocent and the Israeli state are the aggressors.

"To me i look at it like it's a concentration camp, and people are making bombs, like, they're the aggressors?"

Let's go to the videotape.

Anyone still want to argue that Ron Paul is pro-Israel?

Between 1:58 and 2:08, Paul says that the US position should not be to intervene in Israel's military affairs by calling for a cease-fire in Gaza. He says that if Israel has a security problem she has to deal with it. This is exactly what Israel needed from the US when she had the PLO trapped in Beirut in 1982 but was forced by the US to let them flee to Tripoli, and also when she had not finished routing out Hezbollah in 2006, but was also prevented from doing so by a US and European sponsored cease-fire. Ron Paul's policies would be good for Israel.

Ari Goldberg,

Actually, the Bush administration signed off on the US attacking Syria and Olmert chickened out. And Bush also delayed the 'cease fire' by several days in order to give Olmert a chance to make something out of a ground campaign.

Especially when it comes to Iran, Israel does not have the fire power to resolve the problem itself. If no one else resolves the Iranian nuclear threat, Israel will likely attempt to go it alone. But chances are that its efforts will be nowhere near as effective as an American effort would be, and that the United States would be dragged into a conflict as a result anyway.

Either Paul just doesn't get it or he's an anti-Semite. Take your pick.

(Ari Goldberg, continued):

In summary, the G-20 nations are in the grip of a small group of powerful elitists who are working diligently to create a one-world socialist dictatorship, which will be very bad for all of humanity, in particular the Jewish, Christian, and even the Islamic nations. ONLY Ron Paul, out of all the candidates from either party, would even attempt to put a stop to this insane trend. Ironically, and fittingly, the reason his policies are the best is that he is the only one that follows the supreme law of the land - the US Constitution, which every politician takes an oath to uphold, against enemies foreign AND domestic. ANYONE who advocates foreign aid, military adventurism, undeclared wars, regime change, covert operations, the welfare state at home - including for illegal immigrants, mutual assured destruction (MAD) nuclear policies, non-implementation of missile defense systems, printing money out of thin air (the Federal Reserve), and so on, is breaking the law. Is a criminal. Should go to jail. Should be removed from office. The Constitution is clear - the federal government cannot assume any power it desires, but only those enumerated and delegated powers contained therein, and none of the things I just mentioned are authorized by it. To support anyone BUT Ron Paul, is to support the commission of a crime. Not just one, but legions. If our nation is run by criminals, why should we be surprised that we have grave, even existential, problems?

While we cannot turn the clock back and undo all the things I mentioned, we have to start sometime. To keep on the path we are on is suicide. Ron Paul will start the process. As it is now, the Israeli and American people must constantly be in reactive mode, to deal with the conflicts our leaders create for us, to control us. First the Communists, then the Nazis and Japanese, then the Moslems. Enough, I say. I'm sick and tired of paying, and bleeding, and dying, in the wars and depressions, and moral collapse, caused by a criminal government and the elitists behind them, who use government for their nefarious ends.

That's why I, as an American, and as a Jew, support Ron Paul with my whole heart.

Who said "pro-Israel?!" He's saying the US should butt out of our business. Isn't that what you want? Or do you prefer the US dictate what Israel do? And don't think you can separate the "good" from the "bad" here. You simply can't.

Carl, are you saying that Israel should have even been required to seek Bush's permission?! Regarding the 2006 Lebanon War, Moshe Feiglin came out within days of its onset and condemned the operation as something that had no plan, no goals, and would do nothing but cause loss of Jewish lives. Gee, was he wrong? And since Feiglin was no doubt in agreement with Paul here, does that make Paul a Feiglinite? By the logic used on this blog, you should say yes.

Hi Carl, I saw only part 2 of my comment. Did you get part 1? Here it is:

In a Ron Paul world:
1. America would have long ago built a missile defense system and made it available to Israel to purchase. No Iran nuclear threat. (look up his position on this at http://www.issues2000.org/Ron_Paul.htm)
2. The US State Department would not have given nuclear secrets to Pakistan who then gave them to Iran and North Korea (look up Sibel Edmonds).
3. The CIA would not have toppled the democratic Iranian Mossadegh in the '50's. The CIA would not have brought in the Shah and helped create the Savak secret police which is now under the control of the mullahs, and Brzezinski/Carter would not have toppled the Shah and installed Khomeini, giving him money and recognition. Iran would be democratic today. (Defense Secretary Robert Gates has divulged the actions of Brzezinski in this regard).
4. The US would not have subsidized the construction of nearly the entire military-industrial complex of Russia, the former USSR, and China, which have supplied Israel's enemies with arms in every war she has faced. (see Antony Sutton, of Stanford University's Hoover Institution, "Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development", and "National Suicide: Military Aid to the Soviet Union".
5. The US would not have supplied Egypt with billions of dollars of weapons every year since the 1970's under the Camp David Accords, while simultaneously encouraging, with the British, the toppling of Mubarak and the rise of El Baradei and the Muslim Brotherhood to gain control of those weapons and pose the most serious threat to Israel in her existence. (For US/British assistance to the MB, Al Qaeda, and other Islamic terrorists, see "The Devil's Game, by Robert Dreyfuss.)
6. The US would get its oil and gas from its own territory - not from Saudi Arabia, which funds the growth of radical Islam around the world. Gull Island in Alaska alone has as much oil as Saudi Arabia, enough to supply the US for 200 years. (see recent Republican debate remarks by Newt Gingrich). The Bakken fields in North Dakota have just as much as the Alaska's North Slope.
7. The US economy would be booming - we would be like we were in the '50's - even better, due to natural progress over time - when we had a strong industrial base and were the world's biggest lender, not debtor. A strong America is one of the best defenses against any Islamic threat.
8. Our foreign "aid" would not be corporate socialism and keeping dictators propped up and their people impoverished, but we would lead the world by example and share our knowledge of how to be free and prosperous, through implementing the institutions of sound money, property rights, free enterprise, the rule of law, and the fear of God, all bequeathed to us by our founding fathers.
9. The US would not bring the Palestinian Authority to CIA training centers in Virginia to learn how to kill Jews.
10. The US would withdraw from the United Nations, and the the UN would have to move elsewhere. In fact, the sovereignty-destroying UN would never have come into being in the first place. The funding for UNRWA would dry up, and the Arab nations would have to resettle the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, etc., instead of perpetuating their miserable status for use as a weapon against Israel. The constant demonizing of Israel by the UN would cease, along with the stationing of useless and harmful UNIFIL troops, which just allow Islamic terrorists to go about their business unimpeded.

I could go on and on ad infinitum.
