‘They Think War Is Always the Answer’: Sen. Rand Paul Takes Shot at Some Christians’ ‘Overeagerness’ to Defend Israel Militarily

With all due respect, Senator, we are willing to defend our ally, EVEN IF it means war. Not war first above all else. The problem is, no one in this administration would bother to piss on Israel if she were on fire and THAT is a problem. Israel is surrounded by those who hate her. SURROUNDED! Imagine living in such a way, Senator. No one there to come to your aid should the winds shift in an ugly direction. Obama made clear he would side with the Muslims. We did not start this war. It has been raging from the beginning of time. God put enmity between his children and those who serve Satan. Any other god served if of Satan. We do not rush to war, sir. But we should stand and defend ourselves and those who are our closest allies. You are wrong in your attempt to shame Christians. And you have failed in your attempt to shame me. If war is what they desire and if they bring it to our shores or the shores of our sister Israel, then war is what they shall have.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says he has difficulty reconciling the politics of “some” Christians who support Israel and Jews — especially their “overeagerness” to go to war to defend Israel — with the tenets of Christianity.

Paul makes his comments in an interview with Buzzfeed:

“I think some within the Christian community are such great defenders of the promised land and the chosen people that they think war is always the answer, maybe even preemptive war. And I think it’s hard to square the idea of a preemptive war and, to me, that overeagerness [to go to] war, with Christianity.”
