Rand Paul Just Like His Dad Ron Paul...both Hate Israel!

Paul Criticizes Pro-Israel Evangelicals

In an interview with Buzzfeed’s McKay Coppins, Kentucky senator Rand Paul criticized “some” Christians who support Israel and the Jews and those Christians’ “overeagerness” to go to war. Adding to sentiments he expressed in a speech earlier this year, Paul told Buzzfeed:

“I think some within the Christian community are such great defenders of the promised land and the chosen people that they think war is always the answer, maybe even preemptive war. And I think it’s hard to square the idea of a preemptive war and, to me, that overeagerness [to go to] war, with Christianity.”

Rand Paul’s father, former Texas congressman Ron Paul, recently spoke at a conference sponsored by a fringe organization whose leader has denied the Holocaust took place.

Wild Thing's comment.............
Sorry to anyone out there that feels Rand Paul is some kind of win for our GOP for President. No way jose. He is not that different then his dad.

I have a mixed bag of feelings about Rand Paul. He is more conservative than most of the elected conservatives in DC. But, he also occassionally shows signs of being his father's son. His attitude toward Israel is one of those signs.
