(AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)San Antonio, TX - Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who is leading the polls in advance of next Tuesday’s Republican caucuses in Iowa, denies allegations that he has promoted anti-Semitism, saying that this would be “a betrayal of my own intellectual heritage.”

“Any kind of racism or anti-Semitism is incompatible with my philosophy,” Paul said in an interview with Haaretz, conducted by email. “Ludwig von Mises, the great economist whose writing helped inspire my political career, was a Jew who was forced to leave his native Austria to escape the Nazis. Mises wrote about the folly of seeing people as part of groups rather than as individuals,” Paul said.

Question: Ron, would you have saved my grandmother from the gas chambers in Germany?

Answer: I share the same view as most libertarians that we should not have gotten involved in WWII.

Ok, so I guess in your wishful mind, I do not exist, so I cant vote.

Haaretz can find the benefit of the doubt in the one who would allowed germany to butcher the entire Jewish nation- but has issues with the entire Charedi public for the silliness of a few. Someone needs to put Haaretz to sleep-

Yaakov, is that because he refuses declare that as an American politician his first loyalty is to the State of Israel rather than to the United States? HOW MUCH do you Zionimlach want from American politicians?? Are politicians only fit when they serve as emissaries of the Knesset in the White House or Congress??

#12. You are absolutly incorrect. No one asks him to to put Israeli interests first but he is politically very blind and thus very dangerous. If you don't see that it means that you are betraying what is so great about America- freedom and justice.

No, he's a "nut" because of his unusual views on many matters. Without question he marches to a different drummer. An interesting candidate that could do much harm with executive orders such as to withdraw troops from our overseas bases. I wouldn't be surprised if he communicates with space aliens.

And how exactly does it serve the ineterest of the US to have bases all over the globe? You have now aircraft cariers and submarines that can get you to any positin around the globe in a reasonable time to respond to anything that calls for our intervention.

Ha! As a bi-racial woman, I get this sort of thing ALL THE TIME, when someone says something horribly rude about African American folks, and then find themselves trapped by their own words, once I make it known that I myself am half-black!

Then it becomes, "Oh! I didn't mean anything by it! Some of my BEST FRIENDS are black!"

LOL!!! (:-D

Save it Ron Paul! The Jews are way too smart for this nonsense!

They can spot an anti-semite from 2 miles away! (lol) You are never gonna convince them after everything you've said the past 20-30 years, (and even recently!), that you are somehow a friend to Israel!

At this point, even the Jews who can't STAND President Obama, think HE'S a better friend to Israel than you! And that's saying somethin!

Just go back to Texas, where lots of other folks think like you do, ok? The rest of us in the Progressive parts of the country have some serious decisions to make about who is going to run this country... and I can assure you, not many will be choosing you!

Sherry, please don't generalize. It is not ok to be prejudiced against people based on any thing- race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or even where they come from.
I moved from a state in the south to the "progressive" NY and have seen far more racism here than ever before. When I spoke to someone, a caucasian christian woman, about this, she defended herself with "well. That's because we have the worst blacks here in NY."

Likewise my sister lives in texas .
She is not affiliated with ron paul and those teachings and neither are most texans.

Here is the bottom line.

Ron Paul believes that the Jewish state is more trouble than its worth. How long until he believes that Jews themselves are more trouble than they are worth?

Assuming he doesn't already believe that.

In defense of former President Richard M. Nixon, outside of his admitted coverup of the Watergate burglary, he did accomplish some good deeds while in office. He made contact with China, whose regime had been isolated for nearly twenty three years. Also, he established detente with the Soviet Union, and helped pave the way for emigration of thousands of Soviet Jews, and Soviet dissidents. During the Yom Kippur War, he came to the aid of Eretz Yisrael with a massive airlift of military supplies, which saved Israel. Even Golda Meir stated "For generations, all will be told of the immense planes from the United States, which meant life for our people".

I'm sorry.

And I tried to post my apology on here a couple of days ago, but it's never posted, so I'm giving it another go-around.

But you're right: there ARE progressive places in Texas, (there's Austin, right?- lol), and plenty of bigots up North! It's all relative, isn't it?

I was probably speaking (or rather, writing) out of anger, and less out of actually trying to make a point. But it's not cool to make blanket generalizations about people, and so for that...

I give you my sincere apologies.

Thank You & G-d bless.
