With his outspoken views against foreign aid and a muscular foreign policy, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul was less-than-enthused by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech on the Iranian nuclear threat.
And people definitely noticed.

Rand Paul is NOT standing for Netanyahu… I do not think I will be standing for Rand now either— Michael Stewart (@CousinSearchNet) March 3, 2015
The senator’s office released a statement following the speech. “Israel is and has always been America’s friend and ally,” Paul said. ”I was pleased to hear Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to Congress today, and join him in calling for peace and standing together for our mutual interests. It is important to work together to prevent a nuclear Iran, and the spread of Radical Islam.”
