Ron Paul Blames America for the Islamic Terrorism (2009 Video)

Posted by FactReal on December 15, 2011


Libertarian Ron Paul on Islamic terrorists: “They’re terrorists because we’re occupiers.”
(CNN’s Larry King Live, 12/28/2009, video mark 5:14)

Video shows Ron Paul and guests talking about terrorist Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab (The Underwear Christmas Day Bomber who attempted to bring down Northwest/Delta flight on 12/25/2009).

Ron Paul used the opportunity to blame America (again) for the Islamic terror attacks even though:

1. Islamic attacks against Americans started decades before the Iraq War
2. Islamics Crusades started 4 centuries before the European Crusades
3. Islamic doctrine calls for Muslims to attack non-Muslims until they submit to Allah and accept Sharia law

TRANSCRIPT (Video mark 5:14)

RON PAUL: One thing that is missing here is never asking the question what is the motive? AbdulMutallab…he said why he was — he did it. He said it was because we bombed Yemen two weeks ago. That was his motive. Osama bin Laden said that he has a plan for America. First, he wants to bog us down in the Middle East in a no-win war. He wants to bankrupt this country, demoralize us, as well as have us do things that motivate people to join his radical movement.

It seems like we’ve fallen into his trap. Why is it off base? Today, when the gentleman indicated that he did it because of the bombing, you know what the administration said? They dismissed it. It can’t possibly be so. If you dismiss motivations for why they hate us, we can never resolve this. There’s hate on both sides. You have to ask the question, why do they hate? And they usually come up with a reason. And we’re foolish not to take that into consideration.


BEN STEIN: Well, that’s — I have never heard anything quite like that in my whole life. What he’s saying, basically, is we are doing something wrong by defending ourselves. Look, if these terrorists are trying to kill the government of Yemen, we’ve got to help defend them. They’re our friends. We can’t just let al Qaeda run wild. If we try to stop them —


BEN STEIN: Why should we stop them? Because they are terrorists and murderers and they’re very anti-American.

RON PAUL: Why are they terrorists?

BEN STEIN: Surely congressman —

RON PAUL: Why are they terrorists?

BEN STEIN: They’re terrorists and murders because they are psychos.

RON PAUL: They’re terrorists because we’re occupiers.
