Ron Paul: “If I Were an Iranian I’d Like to Have Nuclear Weapons, too, Because You Gain Respect From Them (Israel)”

Yesterday: Ron Paul told Israeli Haaretz News, “I am not anti-Semitic.”
Today: Ron Paul told supporters, “If I were an Iranian, I’d like to have a nuclear weapon, too, because you gain respect from them. (Israel)”

The LA Times reported, via Pat Dollard:

Reporting from Perry, Iowa—
Defending himself against charges of isolationism, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul told voters in Iowa on Thursday that western sanctions against Iran are “acts of war” that are likely to lead to an actual war in the Middle East.

Paul, one of the leading contenders to win next week’s Iowa caucuses, said Iran would be justified in responding to the sanctions by blocking the flow of oil through the Strait of Hormuz. He compared the western sanctions to a hypothetical move by China to block the Gulf of Mexico, which Americans would consider an act of war…

…Apparently alluding to Israel and its nuclear-weapons arsenal, Paul said that “if I were an Iranian, I’d like to have a nuclear weapon, too, because you gain respect from them.”

More… Ron Paul: I wrote most of the newsletters but not the “ten” or so sentences people don’t like.
