Meng Camp claims Halloran ‘Just Discovered Israel’

Did he really say that?

In response to a  widely publicized visit to Israel, a spokesman for Grace Meng points out that Dan Halloran’s well-timed trip should not be withheld from scrutiny considering his support of Ron Paul’s presidential campaign.

“Grace Meng visited and took interest in Israel long before this congressional election, while Dan Halloran was busy trying to get the most anti-Israel Member of Congress, Ron Paul, elected to the presidency. Just a few months ago, Mr. Halloran proudly stood as a delegate for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign; now he’s all of a sudden discovered Israel.” – Austin Finan, spokesman.

On His Way To Israel, Some Unanswered Questions

During the Republican Primary, Mr. Halloran organized a GOTV operation for Ron Paul in Bayside, Queens.

Dan Halloran must face tough questions about his support of Ron Paul, the failed Presidential candidate that flip-flopped on his support of Israel.

In a statement, Ron Paul said, “They [Israel] can take care of themselves,” Paul, who has called for reduced U.S. foreign aid generally, said at the time. “Why do we have this automatic commitment that we’re going to send our kids and send our money endlessly to Israel?”

According to RightWingNews.com, former congressional aide Eric Dondero said Paul, whom he once worked for, had long harbored stridently anti-Israel opinions.

“He [Ron Paul] wishes the Israeli state did not exist at all. He expressed this to me numerous times in our private conversations,” Dondero wrote.

The Meng campaign noticed a questionable pattern. Did Mr. Halloran vicariously support Ron Paul’s foreign policy for Israel? Even if Paul flip-flopped, and Mr. Halloran openly disagreed with his foreign policy, questions remain. Would Congressional Candidate Dan Halloran have stood by Ron Paul given his anti-Israeli commentary?

The issue has been revisited in light of Halloran’s widely publicized trip to Israel with Republican Senator David Storobin.

A Meng spokesperson issued the following statement accusing Halloran of ‘empty words’ and ‘feigned support’.

“Dan Halloran’s critique of President Obama’s Israel policy is curious considering his outspoken support for Ron Paul’s presidential candidacy. If Dan Halloran had his way, Ron Paul would be Commander-in-Chief –slashing aid to Israel, vetoing sanctions against Iran, endangering the Israeli people and jeopardizing the future of their homeland. Those who actually value a strong U.S. – Israeli relationship are not fooled by Mr. Halloran’s empty words and feigned support for the State of Israel.” – Austin Finan, spokesman

Hundreds Attend N.E Queens Republican Debate

Local Republican Club hosts Presidential Debate at the Clearview Golf Course. Here’s a breakdown of the spirited event:

City Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Rockaway) represented Mitt Romney. Ulrich believed Romney is the best candidate because he has the most appeal to independent voters.

Paul Neydavood represented Newt Gingrich and touted Newt’s long list of  ‘accomplishments.’

City Councilman Dan Halloran represented Ron Paul and impressed the crowd with his knowledge of constitutional law lending credit to his alleged bid for U.S Congress.

Elio Forcina represented Rick Santorum and compared the Catholic bashing of Santorum as the worst reaming since JFK. He made a comparison of the treatment of Frank Padavan during the state senate race in 2010,
