For me, one of the most important issues in voting for people to run our country is their stance on Israel. This is one of the reasons Ron Paul was such an attractive candidate for me. While his policy was technically non-interventionist, I think that would actually help Israel. Our “Peace” efforts have largely crippled and hindered the nation, in my opinion. If Iran shoots missiles at them, they should be able to respond to what any sane person would call an “Act of War.” But we’ve restrained them several times now, in just such instances.
“I’m proudly pro-Israel, and my positions have been consistent and clear. Israel, as one of America’s closest allies and the only democracy in a
dangerous neighborhood, deserves our support and assistance. That’s why I view
with such alarm the victory of Hamas and the Iranian president’s vile comments
about wiping Israel off the map.” — John McCain 1
McCain reportedly added: “I would expect concessions and sacrifices by both
When Oren asked McCain if that meant a “movement toward the June 4,
1967 armistice lines, with minor modifications,” the reporter wrote, “McCain
nodded in the affirmative.”
Oren said that McCain stated clearly that Israel’s policy should be one of
“defending itself and withdrawing, defending itself and withdrawing.”2
The Oren mentioned here is the reporter, defending his journalistic integrity. He even invited McCain to take a polygraph test with him, to see who was lying about the interview…the interview which McCain never questioned until this past weekend. It would seem that McCain expects Israel to concede much of its disputed territories to Palestine, which would include Bethlehem, and much of the surrounding area of Jerusalem. This is the Palestine that is run by Hamas…the terrorist organization. To be fair to McCain, he says that talks can’t happen until Palestine shows they are committed to non-violence. In a related statement, McCain also was overheard booking a ski vacation in hell.
