In light of our recent coverage of the anti-Israel protest and the subsequent pro-Israel rallies, this is an interesting take on the crisis.
Ron Paul angers both sides. In short, he acknowledges Israel’s absolute right to self-defense and then also acknowledges that the Palestinians feel oppressed and have their own right to self-defense. He does not blame Israel for the Palestinians’ situation.
His main contention is non-intervention, that the US should stay out of it, and that “our involvement … is not helpful in bringing about peace.”
