When I watched these remarks form Ben Stein I was simply outraged. I am sick and tired of the fact that everyone that is against a blind continuation of the “War on Terror” being labeled as anti- Semitic. Ron Paul is a brave crusader for freedom and liberty and I have never heard a word come out of his mouth that is even slightly of anti-Semitic racist nature.
The fact one wants to stop the war in Iraq doesn’t make him anti-Israel or anti-Semitic
The fact one wants to stop the war in Afghanistan doesn’t make him an anti-Israel or anti-Semitic
The fact one wants to stop foreign aid doesn’t make him an anti-Israel or anti-Semitic
The fact one is for a policy of non intervention doesn’t make him an anti-Israel or anti-Semitic.
The fact one wants Israel to leave the West Bank doesn’t make him an anti-Israel or anti-Semitic
I am a Jewish Israeli so I fell quite sure that no one can blame me of being anti-Semitic and I say to you very loud and clear: I support Ron Paul (See: The Financial Expert supports Ron Paul: Why a policy of non intervention is good for the U.S Israel and the rest of the world )
Saying that the occupation in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the West Bank is motivating terror is a simple fact and not a justification of the actions of the terrorists. Here is a simple fact: money printing and inflation bring poverty that makes crime more likely. By saying that am I supporting crime? No. Anyone that does a crime needs to go to jail and terriosts that murder innocent people deserve to die but fighting endless wars only encourages them and doesn’t help by any means to stop terrorism. When you print money like crazy and impoverish the low and middle class don’t be surprised if you wake up with crime rates like in Brazil, Zimbabwe or Argentina. And when you carpet bomb villages don’t be surprised if you find out that millions worldwide have now become your new enemies.
