Eric Dondero, a former Ron Paul staffer who claims to be half Jewish, writes about his boss’s views:
He is however, most certainly Anti-Israel, and Anti-Israeli in general. He wishes the Israeli state did not exist at all. He expressed this to me numerous times in our private conversations. His view is that Israel is more trouble than it is worth, specifically to the America taxpayer. He sides with the Palestinians, and supports their calls for the abolishment of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs.
. . .
There was another incident when Ron finally agreed to a meeting with Houston Jewish Young Republicans at the Freeport office. He berated them, and even shouted at one point, over their un-flinching support for Israel. So, much so, that the 6 of them walked out of the office. I was left chasing them down the hallway apologizing for my boss.
. . .
Ron Paul is most assuredly an isolationist. He denies this charge vociferously. But I can tell you straight out, I had countless arguments/discussions with him over his personal views. For example, he strenuously does not believe the United States had any business getting involved in fighting Hitler in WWII. He expressed to me countless times, that “saving the Jews,” was absolutely none of our business. When pressed, he 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.
. . .
He engaged in conspiracy theories [about 9/11] including perhaps the attacks were coordinated with the CIA, and that the Bush administration might have known about the attacks ahead of time. He expressed no sympathies whatsoever for those who died on 9/11, and pretty much forbade us staffers from engaging in any sort of memorial expressions, or openly asserting pro-military statements in support of the Bush administration.
ironically, Dondero is supposedly defending Paul from charges of “anti-semitism,” but it seems more to me like Paul hates Jews, believes in conspiracy theories about Jews controlling our foreign policy back to World War II (and even if the ethnicity of the conspirators are not explicitly identified, we know who he means, don’t we?), but he knows enough not to explicitly say “I hate all those kikes” to someone he knows is half-Jewish.
And because Paul believe in conspiracy theories involving foreign policy, this makes it more likely that he believes in conspiracy theories involving the Federal Reserve, and all of those Fed conspiracy theories involve Jews.
