"You know, they can’t go anywhere. They can’t go back and forth to Israel. They can’t go into Egypt. So they feel pretty well trapped too, but nobody says that this entrapment they have gives them a right to defend themselves from being imprisoned in this particular area...."
No matter how you feel about Ron Paul, this is an incredibly STUPID thing to say. They can't go into Israel, BECAUSE THEY KILL PEOPLE, IDIOT. They blow themselves up, on buses, restaurants, and shopping malls.
Are you stupid? Are you mental? Are you saying you want Israel to allow people in the country who have a written charter that states clearly that their ultimate goal in life is to die killing Jews? What a moronic idea. Israel cannot open the ports for them, because then all they do is bring in tanker after tanker of rockets, missiles, foreign terrorists, and weapons.
They can't go into Egypt for the same reason. All they do is cause trouble and try to overthrow the government.
Furthermore, to claim that doing a suprise launch of thousands of rockets deliberately into civilian areas is 'defending yourself' is beyond stupid. No country on Earth or in history would tolerate this under any circumstances. Is Paul saying this is legitimate behavior, under any circumstances? So I guess suicide bombs are also a legitimate form of 'defense' according to Paul.
In my mind, Ron Paul has just proven himself to be the crazy old fool so many people say he is.
