The Passionate Attachment

America's entanglement with Israel

Pro-Israel Republicans demand more militarism

In his latest column for Antiwar.com, Philip Giraldi notes the Israeli connection to the Republican party’s “pervasive militarism.” As a particularly egregious example of one “clueless” Republican’s passionate attachment to Israel, Giraldi cites a statement by Florida Senator Marco Rubio:

“We should always remember that the obstacle to peace isn’t Israel; it’s Palestinian extremists and Islamic terrorists who will not accept the Jewish state. Israel’s enemies are or will soon be America’s enemies as well. They are emboldened every time they sense any sort of daylight between the United States and Israel.”
