US Presidential Candidates Slam Palestinian Authority

Rubio, Cruz blast Trump’s proposed ‘neutrality’, insist they’ll side with Israel against ‘murderous’ Palestinian Authority

By |

With Super Tuesday, the biggest day in the US presidential primaries, fast approaching (March 1), candidates on the Republican side are looking to bolster their pro-Israel credentials and win the Evangelical Christian vote.

Earlier this month, frontrunner Donald Trump suggested he’d be “neutral” in his dealing with Israel and the Palestinians.

One of his top challengers, Senator Marco Rubio (Florida), said at a rally in Houston on Wednesday that he’d take the exact opposite approach.

“…the Palestinian Authority…has strong links to terror, they teach little kids, 5-year-olds, that it’s a glorious thing to kill Jews,” noted Rubio, insisting that America must side with Israel.

Not to be outdone, the other leading contender, Senator Ted Cruz (Texas), said he view on the topic went far beyond the Israeli-Palestinian conflict:

“I am not neutral between murderers and the innocent citizens murderers are targeting. I am not neutral at home or abroad between radical Islamic terrorists and the targets of their terror.”
