Rick Perry vs. Ron Paul Feud Heats Up Over Gaza by Gregory Hilton

Despite Ron Paul's claims, no one is starving in Gaza. There is no lack of electricity or running water, and Gaza City has a luxury shopping mall.


The feud between Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) is continuing, and the new flash point is the Gaza Strip. A new flotilla of large ships will arrive soon and Perry says it is an “unacceptable provocation,” while Paul has always claimed Israel’s Gaza blockade is an act of war. He described the last flotilla of nine ships as breaking the “siege” of Gaza.
Paul has criticized the Governor as an “establishment candidate” and for being “identified with the Bush administration and very much the status quo.” Bush and Perry were gubernatorial running makes in 1998. In 2007, Paul said Perry should be investigated for a criminal violation of the Logan Act when he attended the Bilderberg Conference. That same year Paul said Perry’s attendance was “A sign that he’s involved in the international conspiracy.”
In 2008, Paul endorsed Perry’s GOP primary opponent, Debra Medina, who was linked to the 9/11 Truth movement which believes the U.S. government had advance knowledge of the attack. During an interview with Glenn Beck, Medina would not deny she was a 9/11 Truther.
In his endorsement letter Paul said: “I have known Debra for over 10 years and she been a key supporter and member of my campaign team. . . I asked Debra to serve on the board of directors of my national grassroots action group, Campaign for Liberty.”
Perry is the complete opposite of Ron Paul and says the Gaza flotilla is a propaganda ploy. As the Red Cross has repeatedly confirmed, there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Israel’s actions are in accordance with its inherent right to self-defense, and it is foolish to legitimize Hamas.
Every week about 10,000 tons of food, medicine and other humanitarian supplies are sent by Israel to Gaza. Ron Paul says Israel is violating “Palestinian waters,” but they do not exist because Palestine is not a country. Hamas won the last election in Gaza and they refuse to recognize Israel.
What is Hamas?
Hamas will not renounce violence and they have repeatedly called for Israel’s destruction. A suicide bomber who attacked an Israeli pizzeria crowded with children was praised by Hamas. According to the Jerusalem Post:

Hamas is the Arabic acronym for the Islamic Resistance Movement. It is a radical movement considered a terrorist organization by the United States and European Union. Hamas leaders condemned America for killing Osama bin Laden, and a founding principle of the Hamas charter calls for Jihad, a holy war on behalf of Islam.
Hamas has been responsible for more than a hundred suicide attacks, and has fired more than 10,000 rockets and missiles into towns and villages in Israel. The international community estimates that Hamas receives $20 million to $30 million in funding from Iran, a tyrannical regime that repeatedly denies its citizens basic human rights and kills any persons who question its principles.

Ron Paul’s Defense of Hamas
Congressman Paul says Hamas is an elected government so Israel should not be blocking the delivery of weapons to Gaza. Once again, an estimated 10,000 Katusha rockets from Gaza have been launched at Israel since their voluntary withdrawal six years ago. Rep. Paul has never described these attacks as an act of war.
In both of the presidential debates this year, the lawmaker has said he wants a “non-interventionist foreign policy.” He often votes alone and will not join his colleagues in condemning genocide, ethnic cleansing, rape camps and numerous other human rights abuses anywhere in the world. He justifies his actions by saying we should not tell other countries what to do, but he always tells Israel what to do and never fails to repeat Hamas and Hezbollah propaganda.
What Ron Paul Does Not Say

  • Israel has always acted in accordance with international maritime law. They are in a state of armed conflict with Hamas. In such cases blockades are permissible under international law so long as humanitarian goods are not prevented from reaching the population. Boarding a vessel is permissible if the ship is bound for a “belligerent” territory.
  • The organizers of the flotilla are affiliated with an officially designated terrorist organization. They have said suicide attacks against Israeli citizens are religiously sanctioned.
  • Gaza shipments do not have to come through Israel. They are allowed to unload their cargo of humanitarian goods at the Egyptian port of El-Arish. The supplies are then transferred on land to Gaza after being checked.
  • According to the International Monetary Fund, Gaza’s economy expanded by 15.2% last year.
  • Hamas strictly limits freedom of the press and religious freedom. Christians do not have the same freedom as Muslims, and any political assemblies must be approved in advance. Women are denied basic human rights.

Should Israel comply with international law and the values of the international community? Yes. Does it? Yes, and like every nation is has a right to self-defense.

  1. Ron Paul 2012. Track record and substance over rhetoric and flip flopping.

    Ron Paul 2012

  2. a very well written article. because there is not much difference between the failed foreign policies of jimmy carter and the doomed to fail foreign policies of ron paul. fortunately for all of us, the presidential aspirations of ron ”the nutjob” paul are doomed to fail as badly in 2012, as they did in 2008.

  3. Very good analysis of a battle between a normal human and the Head Ronulan. I’d advise that you avoid the 14th Congressional district of Texas until shiny objects distract the Borg know a the faux-cons.

  4. Extremely well written article. Ron Paul has terrorists supporting them to push their laws onto us. Keep up the good work Gregory. We are listening!

  5. Good article, looking forward to the next one. I am sure Ron Paul will give you plenty to write about in the coming months.

  6. Moderate this ya dumb asshole

  7. PUL WILL GET HIS USUAL 4% INH THE PRIMARIES, AND THEN WE’LL BE DONE WITH HIM AND THE IDIOTIC MORONS THAT SUPPORT HIM.

  8. Ron Paul is a left threaded nut on a right threaded bolt. I wish he would take his loathsome cult and join the Democrats that is where he would fit in!

  9. Ron Paul is an appeaser and an enabler of Islamists…..reject him he is just more of the same……Obama by any other name would smell as rank.

  10. Great article! So true! Ron Paul is anti-semitic to the core!

  11. Ron Paul is a disaster waiting to happen… He has no concept of freedom and its right to exist. The sworn enemys of Israel will not stop until they are stopped and they only understand force, its like petting a wild rabbid wolf, an animal that bites the hand (Israel) that feeds it…Time to expand Israel and push Gaza into a neighboring country and seize the land. After Ron Paul has been read his rights and arrested for treason consorting with the enemy.
    Israel, needs to expand in the three directions and start thinking about expanding its territory not retreating from freedom and expression and the only true democracy in the region…Where all ethnic religious people live in peace and harmiony where Christians, Jews and Muslims live in peace..a true melting pot of love and understanding…Christian America blesses Israel….

  12. What kind of anti-GOP convention is he planning in 2012 when he loses this election?

  13. Neocon lies and tripe and the mindless sheep follow along eating grass…

    Ron Paul 2012

  14. I am extremely grateful for this info – had no idea that Ron Paul was such a freak. There is no rationale in his thinking. I know quite a few people who are ardent followers and now I know why they are anti Israel. Just thought they were extremists but now I understand their warped thinking. This is all so frightening. How do we really know how and what a candidate stands for in the long run. We must be extremely careful on who and what we vote for! Thank You and God Bless America

  15. Greg is a nut case

  20. Ron Paul Is The Poster Boy Depends Diapers! He needs to retire to a nursing home!

  21. How long has ronny been a professional bureaucrat anyways ? Audit the fed ? Ya right , tell me another long yarn . Draw on this Tex aint gonna happen and your safe demanding the preposterous . Much easier to rain nukes . The popes pull his strings and he jumps . He’s their puppet and he loves it UNholy all the way , as in the bitch ( whore that rides UNholy Roman Empire , led by Germany again ) . Eu UN its all the same . Ratzinger the RAT and Adolpho Nicholas well show you the way , and its broad and many that are on it .

  22. THE U.S. IS NOT THE ANNOINTED OR OFFICIAL POLICEMAN OF THE WORLD
    .I remember Ron Paul stating that the U.S.S.R. was a far larger threat to us than Iran is today. Did we start a war with the U.S.S.R. because they were developing and then developed nuclear power? No. Pres. Reagan stood his ground and stood them down and eventually that “Wall” came down because the U.S.S.R. bankrupted themselves with putting so much of their capital into military machine.
    What Pres. Reagan practiced was, “Speak softly, but carry a big stick.”

    Because Iran threatens to build their nuclear capability does not mean that we threaten or start a war with them. We and other free world countries hold onto our nuclear capabilities and keep on improving all our military capabilities — and just as what happened with the U.S.S.R. they will fall on their own face when they waste their funds on military spending to the detriment of the lives of their own people who will turn on them because they have been starved out of funds, jobs and food.

    Israel is a wealthy nation and has the capability of purchasing as much weaponry as they need from us and other allies. They do not need the U.S.’s or the U.N.’s permission to defend themselves against Iran, Iraq, Libya or any other country – including nuclear defense if they deem it necessary.

    The United States should not be the policeman of the world – nor should we be stationed in Germany, Italy, France, Japan, S. Korea and all the other nations throughout the world. Let all of those nations expend their capital and their military to defend their own countries and quit using our troops as free fodder for all the other nation states.

    We are the largest Debtor Nation in the world. We should be expending our capital to have our troops defending our borders – and bring our troops home to do just that.

    .

  23. Any of the Ron Paul fans on my page ~ read this. Christians know why he is not a man to be trusted.

  24. Ron Paul crushes cute puppies.

  25. Gregory Hilton would have hated Thomas Jefferson as well.

  26. I wonder what Gregg Hilton got in exchange for his soul?

  27. Ron Paul for intellect, sanity, liberty, peace, honor and restoring our Constitutional Republic! President Ron Paul 2012 – get used to it!
