Rand Paul Introduces Bill to Stop Obama from Arming Syrian Rebels

June 21, 2013

Senator Rand Paul posted on his website earlier today, announcing that he was co-sponsoring bi-partisan legislation to stop Obama, McCain, and Rubio’s plan to arm the Syrian rebels who are allied with Al Qaeda.

This is extremely important legislation, because 70% of people agree that Obama’s plan to arm the allies of Al Qaeda is simply wrong. We should never dump weapons and help support Islamic fascists — even if they’re fighting another tyrant. We should stay out completely.

Sen. Rand Paul has long been a loud critic of Obama’s support of tyrannical regimes and movements, like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, which we are supporting with cash, F-16s, and tanks.

Sen. Rand Paul explained:

“The American people deserve real deliberation by their elected officials before we send arms to a region rife with extremists who seek to threaten the U.S. and her allies.”

It’s worth noting that even Democrats are supporting this legislation. Obama is quickly losing his base with his radical interventionist foreign policy during a time when both parties are sick of watching Americans pay the price for a world “police man” presence.

Remember, this is not just a problem in one part of Syria. Global Islamic tyranny is the goal of many Islamic groups, and should absolutely never be supported.

Al Qaeda, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood — these are all groups with differing theology but similar goals: forced Islamic tyranny. Click here to read more.

Rand Paul has spoken out in the past about the persecution of Christians by groups that would directly benefit from Obama’s decision to arm the Syrian rebels. Rand explained:

“It angers me to see my tax dollars supporting regimes that put Christians to death for blasphemy against Islam, countries that put to death Muslims who convert to Christianity, and countries who imprison anyone who marries outside their religion.”

Well said, Rand. We need more senators to stand up against the US financing of persecution and tyranny.
