GOProud tears into Tom Campbell

For terrorist coddling and hostility to Israel,

In his failed 2000 Senate bid, Campbell called for the creation of an independent Palestinian state with its capital in Jerusalem, argued that Israel received too much U.S. aid, and attacked former President Bill Clinton for being too pro-Israel.

While in Congress, Campbell was one of only a handful of Representatives to vote against both a resolution expressing support for Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and against the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state.

“Israel is one of the United States most important and loyal allies, and quite frankly Tom Campbell’s record and rhetoric look more like Pat Buchanan’s then Ronald Reagan’s,” said LaSalvia. “Israel is a beacon of freedom and tolerance in a sea of radically anti-gay regimes in the Middle East. You simply cannot claim to support equality of opportunity for gays and lesbians while at the same time seeking to undermine the only country in the Middle East that treats gay people with dignity and respect.”

This was a press release er, oriented towards the gay community, who Campbell is actively seeking support from.  I have zero patience for the Pat Buchanan/Jimmah Carter view on Israel, good work GOProud.
