I knew full well that when I started supporting Rand Paul that I didn't agree with him on everything, especially foreign policy. I do agree that we shouldn't be invading anyone and even that we should reduce our foreign aid dramatically to certain countries. But right now Egypt is run by a pro-western, pro-Israel government and they are fighting for their lives against the genocidal hate group known as the Muslim Brotherhood. Their battle is really the same fight as ours. If we lose Egypt to that latest reincarnation of totalitarianism we will have created ANOTHER Iran through inaction and that greatly threatens our interests and the lives of the people of Israel.
So really, I wish he would stop. Just look at his bedfellows, Carl Levin, Pat Leahy and Lindsey Graham. You know you've made a wrong decision if you are on the same side as Lindsey Graham and Carl Levin at the same time. And G-d forbid he succeeds in cutting off aid this time. That will do us absolutely no good. The money will simply now come from the gulf states or even worse, the Russians.
Honestly, I'm pretty annoyed at this point by his stance. How can you say you are pro-Israel when you do something which is so clearly against Israel's interests. We need groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Al Qaeda put down, we shouldn't be giving them comfort by cutting off aid to their enemies in the middle of a fight.
Seriously, if Ted Cruz comes out for the Egyptian military in this thing I might consider a Jews for Ted Cruz page. It even rhymes.
