Ron Paul Backs Jerusalem as Capital
Texas Republican Ron Paul, known for wanting to cut aid to Israel and other countries, has backed recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
"The real issue here is not what America wants, but what does Israel want," Paul said, according to a transcript of a meeting with evangelical leaders obtained by Business Insider. "If Israel wants their capital to be Jerusalem, then the United States should honor that."
