In the Opinion Exchange of the January 6 edition of the Star Tribune, "In praise of three non-Romneys," Brian Thiel claims that Congressman Ron Paul's ideology and world view are "sensible," and asks, "What is with this unfaltering support for Israel and anything Christian, anyway?" Moreover, he cannot understand why so many Republicans reject Congressman Paul's foreign policy. To help him understand, I refer him to the article in Y-Netnews.com (December 28, 2011), in which a former senior aide to Mr. Paul, Eric Dondero, revealed that on numerous occasions over a 12-year period Paul said that he "wished the Israeli state did not exist at all," that "Israel is more trouble than it is worth," and that he "supported the Palestinians' calls for the abolition of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs." The vast majority of Republicans reject Ron Paul's ideology because it is morally and intellectually bankrupt, and because Paul simply does not comprehend that support for Israel is in America's military, diplomatic, and economic best interests.
