Israel-firster Rick Santorum wants to bring back 1800's geopolitical morality with Iron Age, tribal Jewish state as model

Introduction by Chris Moore:

The following is from an interview with GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum in which he favorably compares Israel's contemporary behavior with events in the mid-1800's.

The man might as well be a Neanderthal, completely lost in time and space.

This just goes to show the danger of the primitive, Zionist mindset, which simply doesn't evolve, and is forever caught glorifying a brutish, tribal past.

With the world today facing unprecedented challenges in terms of population explosions, limited resources, and potential nuclear conflicts, the last thing we need is these anachronistic, stunted, Old Testament-worshippers attempting to impose Iron Age Jewish tribal morality on a 21st century world.

It's time to throw these Zionists under the bus, once and for all.

Santorum: ‘All The People Who Live In The West Bank Are Israelis’

(Think Progress) -- by Eli Clifton --

In a recorded conversation during a Friday campaign stop in Iowa, former Republican senator Rick Santorum offered a surprisingly hawkish set of foreign policy views (even for Santorum) on both Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. After telling a questioner that the U.S. should target Iranian nuclear scientists for assassination, the GOP presidential hopeful went on to say that “all the people who live in the West Bank are Israelis, they’re not Palestinians” and offered his endorsement of Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank.

Santorum even went so far as to compare Israeli annexation of the West Bank to the acquisition of Texas during the Mexican-American war:

QUESTIONER: Do you think Israel should dismantle its settlements?

SANTORUM: No. The West Bank, is this part of Israel?

QUESTIONER: [inaudible] According to 48? [inaudible]
[...]

SANTORUM: How did we get New Mexico and Texas?

QUESTIONER: Through war.

SANTORUM: How did they get the West Bank? [inaudible] Through a war. Should we give Texas back to Mexico?

QUESTIONER: Well I don’t think you should recognize recent annexations.

SANTORUM: Oh, so it depends whether it’s recent or not? So we should have given New Mexico and Texas back 150 years go?
[...]

The bottom line is that that is legitimately Israeli country. And they have a right to do within their country just like we have a right to do within our country. If they want to negotiate with Israelis, and all the people who live in the West Bank are Israelis, they’re not Palestinians. This is Israeli land..."

If Santorum is endorsing a one-state solution, and there is no other way to interpret his comments, he should elaborate on whether the current Arab residents of the West Bank — a people he refuses to call Palestinians — should receive the full voting rights and freedom of movement afforded to Israeli citizens...MORE...LINK
