Here are the words of National Jewish Democratic Council President David Harris:
“…foreign aid in general, and aid to Israel in particular, is crucial to Israel’s security and its pursuit of peace…Senator Paul’s statement is yet another illustration of how the Republican Party continues to grow increasingly out of touch with the values of the vast majority of the American Jewish community.” (My emphasis).
How arrogant and condescending! Senator Paul and his Party need to be in touch with the values of all Americans, not just those who are Jewish. This is yet another example of why the power of the Israel Lobby needs to be smashed.
