Israel Lobby Paints A Target On Rand Paul’s Back

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) may have the potential to harness youth support, frustrated Democrats, libertarians and harsh fiscal conservatives if he runs for President in 2016. But already there are well-heeled forces working to preemptively quash a potential Paul Presidency.
The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) gathered over the weekend to give potential establishment GOP contenders for President in 2016 the opportunity to woo big-money donors with strong ties to Israel.
The host, and the most notable donor present, was billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.
Paul is wildly unpopular with members of the Israel lobby because he believes America’s many domestic problems should take precedence over the neoconservative foreign policy that has kept the Nation ensnarled in Mideast conflicts for decades.
