"Please document how Ron Paul carries water for the Islamists"

Don't you think that the Republican Jewish Coalition had a good reason to exclude Ron Paul from its forum and that the idea to cut all financial aid to Israel as Paul Ron suggests is exactly what the phrase "carrying water for the Islamists" implies ? If I were an Islamist , I'd also want an end to US aid to Israel.

Leaving apart your distinction between "Islamists" and "moderate Muslims", Ron Paul's statement that "I don't see Islam as our enemy .I see that motivation is occupation and those who hate us and would like to kill us, they are motivated by our invasion of their land, the support of their dictators that they hate" misses just one small point - 1400 years of jihad against us kafirs which Ron Paul to the best of my knowledge has no clue about. I guess it is only because he has no sense of Islamic history or of the history of the victims of Islam's aggression that he can be so politically correct, i.e. naive , while speaking of and on behalf of Islam. This way he plays exactly according to the foul rules established by Moslems/Islamists themselves. We should be kept ignorant about Islam's past, its goals and methods and without realizing it work for our own ruin as long as Islam is weak and when it is too late we will have a choice between converting to Islam or becoming slaves of our Moslem masters.

Note also that many Moslems support him and time will only show how many of them will turn out to be -to use your terminology -"Islamists" at the end of the day. Before 9/11 Mohamed Atta must have been perceived as a very moderate Moslem indeed.

And on a general note, despite your partisan article suggesting that only the leftists support "Islamists" , the Republicans as far as I can remember have got an equally long and nasty, if not a longer and nastier, record of enabling, financing and arming jihad and "Islamists". If I am not mistaken they have never denounced or regretted it or have cut their close ties to Saudi wahhabi despots and their ilk.

In short , it's far from certain who has done more harm to us kafirs - the Democrats or the Republicans and so I am afraid that a call to side with the ones against the others doesn't contain a real choice.
