I just got an email appeal from Rand Paul, this is my reply to his office:
You are truly an ambitious politician if you think Israel’s bombing of Gaza is in anyway justified by the awful abduction and murder of three teenagers. I am appalled my tax dollars bought those weapons Israel now wields so savagely against the Palestinians.
Blessed are the Peacemakers, Mr. Rand. Do something in that regard.
I will be contacting my Representatives in Congresss to vote *against* your “Stand with Israel Act.” The funding we give to Palestine is humanitarian aid. However the massive funding we give to Israel goes to arms.
Your efforts seem to be nothing more than a crass announcement to AIPAC that you’d like their funding.
You’ve lost my respect and my support,
