RAND PAUL DEMANDS NO MORE AID TO ISRAEL
By Rev. Ted Pike
30 Jan 11
Last year I praised Sen. Rand Paul for his proposal that the Civil
Rights Act of 1964 be repealed because it gave special rights to some
over others. I was criticized in the anti-Zionist right for encouraging
an inveterate "bootlicker" of Israel.
But now Paul is again showing himself capable of independent thought
and action, demanding that all U.S. aid to Israel be cut off.
In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday Paul said
that “Reuters did a poll, and 71 percent of American people
agree with me that when we're short of money, where we can't do
the things we need to do in our country, we certainly shouldn't
be shipping the money overseas.”
When asked by Blitzer if he wanted to halt an annual $3 billion that
go to Israel, Paul replied affirmatively, explaining that Egypt receives
almost the same amount.
"You have to ask yourself, are we funding an arms race on
both sides? I have a lot of sympathy and respect for Israel as a
democratic nation, as, you know, a fountain of peace and a fountain
of democracy within the Middle East. But at the same time, I don't
think funding both sides of the arm race, particularly when we have
to borrow the money from China to send it to someone else. We just
can't do it anymore. The debt is all-consuming and it threatens our
well-being as a country,” Paul
said. (haaretz.com "U.S.
Democrats and pro-Israel lobbies slam Republican Senator's call

Despite Paul's obligatory praise for Israel, the bottom line is that
a U.S. Senator is now calling for the virtually unprecedented: cutting
the financial umbilical cord through which we have sustained Israel
for more than a half century.
Christians especially have no duty to sustain the racist and Christian-persecuting
state of Israel. (See, 50

Increasing Anti-Christianity) Far from safeguarding
American interests and making friends for America in the Mid East,
a century of Zionist theft, terrorism and abrasiveness has violently
inflamed the Arab world, not only against Jews but also against Israel's
obedient ally, America.
Modern Israel is not that nation of obedient Jews which
God says in Scripture He will bring back to peace and safety in the
Holy Land. Instead, as the "Great Harlot," "Babylon" she
constitutes that rebellious false return of Ezekiel 38 and 39, leading
to Jewish dominion over the nations and arrival of Anti-Christ.
the Great" is Israel)
As such, Sen. Paul lends support to Scripture in its command to Christian
America to "come out of” any involvement with this writhing
system of oppression and persecution (Rev. 18:4). (See, Israel:
On the Way to Empire in the Mideast)
Democrats and the Israeli lobby are already loudly protesting Paul's
recommendation. We can expect overwhelming pressure this week (led
by ADL) to force Paul to back down and apologize, as he did last year.
