President Obama appears to lead a charmed life.  Obama's empty threats against Syria boomeranged clear across to the other side of the world, but exploded in the Republican well of the United States Senate.

Miraculously (for the Democrats), Obama's Syria theatrics tore open the anti-Semitic wing of the Republican Party for all to see.  Senator Rand Paul has been exposed as the Jew-hater his father Congressman Ron Paul was always known to be.  Obama's 'Syria strategy' may guarantee that the next President of the United States will be a Democrat hand-picked by Obama.

On Friday, September 13, Senator Rand Paul stated in an interview with 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 over eagerness [to go to] war, with Christianity.”

Well, there you have it.  According to US Senator Dr. Rand Paul, the dual-loyalist American Jews along with the Israeli Jews forced Obama to bomb Syria in response to Assad's murdering over 125,000 of his own people.

This is what Sen. Paul had to say, in public, about Christians lobbying for Israel aka "The Promised Land."  Can you only imagine what venom he spews, in private, about "the Chosen People"?  Imagine how Sen. Rand would feel if US soldiers were murdered while on the "West Bank for Peace" peacekeeping mission for which  American Jews and Tzipi Livni are now quietly lobbying.

Senator Paul's love of the chemo-genocidal mass-murderer Bashir Assad may stem from their common bonds.  They are both anti-Semitic ophthalmologists who had Hitler-loving fathers who blame the Jews for everything wrong in the world.  Unfortunately, Rand Paul's anti-Semitic sentiments are not unusual in America, in the halls of the US Congress, or corridors of the Pentagon.  He only says openly what other people are thinking in private. In my opinion,  AIPAC's "success" only hides the truth that Israel's support in Congress is in need of bolstering.

Now is Ron Paul really a "Hitler-lover"?  Eric Dondero, a former Ron Paul staffer stated:

"But I can tell you straight out, I had countless arguments/discussions with [Ron Paul] over his personal views. For example, he [Ron] strenuously does not believe the United States had any business getting involved in fighting Hitler in WWII. He [Ron] expressed to me countless times, that “saving the Jews,” was absolutely none of our business. When pressed, he [Ron] often times brings up conspiracy theories like FDR knew about the attacks of Pearl Harbor weeks before hand, or that WWII was just “blowback,” for Woodrow Wilson’s foreign policy errors, and such."

Reading Dondero's description of Ron Paul, one can easily understand why Paul Jr. is the way he is, blind to Iran's threat to the world, and clueless to Assad's critical nexus to Iran's threat.

But the Paul Family and their merry band of Jew-hating American isolationists aren't the real reason Israel is viewed with contempt.  The real reason Israel's star has dimmed isn't because of the anti-Semites, it's because of Government of Israel going along with the "Peace Process."


Before "Oslo" started Israel was Ronald Reagan's "5 Aircraft Carriers in the Eastern Mediterranean" whose security couldn't be compromised with a bordering Palestinian state.  When "Oslo" started, the Israeli Government had to come up with a reason to explain why Israel could now cede Judea and Samaria, and expose itself to annihilation.

The Israeli government's (and their leftist academic and journalistic enablers) reason was "After the Cold War was over, Israel was no longer a US strategic military asset,  and could be eliminated as any President saw expedient in Peace Process where Israel would be eliminated."  In short, to sell the "Peace Process," the Israeli Government had to brainwash people into believing Israel was strategically worthless to the United States.  It short, it was a self-inflicted suicidal wound.

For 25 years, this was the one major battle I consistently fought:  To explain to US Congressman why Israel was still strategically a supreme and indispensable US military asset.  That was why I came up with my Israel strategic value graphics.  The graphics refuted the poison the left-wing wing wase injecting into the Congress.  With my Western Theater graphics I always ask a simple question: If Israel were destroyed, how is Cyprus defensible?  And once Cyprus goes, how much are you going to have to budget in the US defense budget in years 2, 3, 4, and 5 to defend the core-NATO country Greece from the Muslim-Caliphate threat that will surely move north and west?"  That question usually stops listeners in their tracks.

Those who are pushing the "Peace Process" are implicitly or explicitly continuing to push the "Israel isn't a strategic asset" argument.
But here's the problem.  Those who are pushing the "Peace Process" are implicitly or explicitly continuing to push the "Israel isn't a strategic asset" argument.  Why?  Because, one can only expose Israel to catastrophic risks for Peace if Israel isn't a strategic US  military asset.  Why would any rational person ever expose "America's Aircraft carrier in the Med" to a chemical Katyusha rocket attack?  You wouldn't.

 So, as long as Israel and the "Peace Lobby" Americans Jews keep pushing their suicidal "Peace Process," Congress will continue to believe(or at a minimum be totally confused about) that Israel is not a vital strategic US military asset.

The Peace Process not only exposes Israel to chemical katyushas from a PA State, it erodes Israel's most important asset in the world: Israel's bedrock support in the US Congress.
