Harretz (Isaraeli newspapers) has a story about Ron Paul:
Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul supports calls for the abolishment of Israel as a Jewish state, and the return of it in its entirety to the Arabs, though he is not an anti-Semite, a former senior aide of the libertarian Texan congressman wrote in a blog on Monday.
“He wishes the Israeli state did not exist at all,” Eric Dondero wrote in his blog on the RightWing News website. “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,” Dondero added.
Responding to the column, CBS News quoted Ron Paul's spokesman Jesse Benton as saying that, "Eric Dondero is a disgruntled former staffer who was fired for performance issues. "
"He has zero credibility and should not be taken seriously," Benton added.
I'm sorry but I think I've heard these attacks before. (I'm not accusing Harretz of attacking, they're covering a story.) Usually we hear it from our 'pals' at US Socialist Worker. You know the rag that pretends to hold people accountable but whored the last bits of their good name for War Hawk Barack in 2008?
Sharon smith and others will show up and insist that Ron Paul is this or that.
He has disowned the statements.
I don't know what else he can do.
If someone can prove something, than they need to. But at present, I've heard this story many times before. The newsletter story is old news. (I know some are only learning about it now. I saw a blogger claim Paul had never been vetted and thought, "Oh, honey, stick to your bad blogs about non-politics.")
