Sen. Paul Introduces Stand with Israel Act of 2014

***FUNDRAISING STATUS -   I sold a car, and will be paid in the morning and can then meet our remaining deficit.  Thank you everyone who contributed and made it happen.   We are good to go for another month.  Wish us luck in having a reasonable summer. 
Vatic Note:   Oh, dear, its a bit of an understatement to say that  as a previous Ron Paul supporter,  I am a bit "miffed" at Rand for this Unbelieveable sell out below.  If this were to pass, think about it,  no restrictions on Israel who has already unilaterally bombed Palestinian men, women, and children in Gaza with little or no consequences for doing so.   Then built settlements against all agreements and international law,  and resettled Khazars from Russia onto Palestinian land.  EXCUSE ME? 

Then, to put in the act a blanket prohibition "a pledge not to go to war with Israel"  is like giving Israel a blank check to decimate the pals where ever they live, which is basically like a genocide free check and ticket to get out of jail free.  So, why did he do it?  Is this another video replay by the Israeli lobby to a US Senator,  of the JFK assassination?  A reminder?  A threat?  What exactly has happened here?  Or maybe a bribery?   Until I know, I won't speculate, but I will continue to ask questions and seek credible answers.
