Rand Paul: Cut Aid To Palestinians Unless They Recognize Israel As Jewish State


Rand Paul: Cut aid to Palestinians unless they recognize Israel as Jewish state (JTA, April 28, 2014):

WASHINGTON (JTA) — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said he will introduce legislation that would cut U.S. funding to the Palestinian Authority unless its government recognized Israel as a Jewish state.

Paul (R-Ky.), a likely contender for the Republican presidential nod in 2016, said the law was needed because of the interim governance agreement last week between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.

He said he would introduce the legislation this week if there is no such statement after five weeks — the deadline set by Hamas and the Fatah faction to establish an interim government that would lay the ground for elections.

“In the absence of such a clear, unambiguous statement on the part of the newly unified Palestinian government, the United States should act to enforce the law and cut off aid to the Palestinian government until they recognize Israel’s right to exist,” Paul said.

Referring to Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip and is termed a terrorist group by the United States, Israel and the European Union, Paul said, “Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with an entity that does not believe it should exist and that has used terrorist tactics to seek its end. That being said, the new unity government has a chance to put itself on the record as clearly believing in the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state, as Israel recognizes the right of a Palestinian state to exist.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that any peace agreement must include Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state.

“It should also declare an immediate and lasting cease-fire to enable negotiations,” Paul said of the Palestinian government.

U.S. law bans the distribution of funds to any Hamas-affiliated entity. The Palestinian Authority has said the interim government will have the backing of Hamas but will not be affiliated with it.

Paul has drawn criticism in the past from the pro-Israel community for advocating cutting assistance to Israel as part of his broader advocacy for an end to U.S. foreign assistance.

  1. Rand Paul can go screw himself.
    He has no right to say such things. Israel has been as big a bully to the Palestinians as the US has been to countless other nations too small to fight back.
    It is time for Israel to acknowledge the Palestinians.

  2. Well, some of it is finally in print, the US is afraid of it’s waning powers. They still have not acknowledged the fall of the US dollar as more nations no longer use it at all…..that electronic currencies have undercut and are destroying the US dollar as a world reserve currency. Thanks to Hugo Chavez, and the advent of electronic currencies which translates the value of each currency at the time of the trade, the need for any world reserve currency is obsolete.
    Well, this article is a start.

  3. Whilst his father has earned support for his common sensical views and reasoning, I am at a loss why his son chooses to go down this path.

    Does he hate his dad?

    Is he brown nosing the yids?

    Does he really want to be associated with a race of malodorous, underhand, untrustworthy, two faced, selfish, murderous, scheming, manipulative, lying control freaks?

    Surely the awakening has reached him.

  4. You forgot the 78% of Palestine east of the Jordan River that was given to the Arabs in 1922 to form Transjordan and then Jordan. The Balfour Declaration initially was to make all the land on both sides of the Jordan as a national home for the Jews.
