Rand Paul: Israel is "one friend that never leaves our side, has never wavered"

In case you missed this absurd joke, the latest from yarmulke-wearing Rand Paul. On November 12, 2013 Rand Addressed Cadets at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C and gave these incredible comments:

"Amidst the chaos of the Middle East we have always had one friend that never leaves our side-Israel. As an ally, Israel has never wavered. One thing you can know for sure is you will never see an Israeli burning the American flag.

America has never backed down from a fight-but we should never be a nation that is eager to get involved in nations' conflicts that work against our own national security. President Eisenhower said: "I have one yardstick by which I test every major problem - and that yardstick is: Is it good for America?" Is our current foreign policy good for America? Is our involvement in Egypt, Syria and Pakistan to our benefit-or our detriment?"

Randy also babbled about "When we finally caught Osama Bin Laden, it was in Pakistan..."

The same day Rand gave the speech, Robert Wenzel of EconomicPolicyJournal.com reported that Rand "goes on an insane pro-Israel, militaristic tweeting binge."

Last summer, Rand admitted that he visits with Israeli groups daily. As for the claims about 'never burning the American flag,' I guess Rand has never heard of the USS Liberty.On June 8, 1967, 34 American sailors were slaughtered by Israel, along with their flag, which the Israelis shot down. As USS Liberty survivor John Hrankowski explained in an interview before his death, "As for our Flag. All American ships fly the flag. Ours was flying until the Israelis shot it down and within seconds another was put up. It was our holiday Ensign, sized 9 feet by 13 feet."
