Rand Paul Defends Israel

Rand Paul aims to become the next US president. In this video, he declares his support for Israel and for new legislation against the Palestinian Authority that he is trying to pass.

Although Paul has spoken out against Israel in the past, seeking an end to the US funding Israel receives, in this video he appears to show a different side. He begins by saying, “I’m proud to support Israel, America’s longtime friend and ally in the Middle East.” He describes the terror that Israel regularly faces and explains why he proposed a bill called the “Stand with Israel Act.” The bill will cut off the flow of US funds to the Palestinian Authority.
