The New American – Tea Party favorite and freshman Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) may have crossed a “third rail” of politics by suggesting that the federal government zero out all foreign aid — including even foreign aid to Israel, America’s largest foreign aid recipient over the past 30 years.

Various Israeli-lobby outlets have condemned his proposal. New York City’s The Jewish Week called it a “toxic mix.” The Republican Jewish Coalition rejected the proposal  as “misguided.” The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin labeled Dr. Rand Paul’s remarks “neo-isolationism” and said they would be “widely condemned.”
