    In a long speech on the Senate floor, the Kentucky Republican laid out his foreign policy vision, and took transparent swipes at members of his own party.

    September 18, 2014 Rand Paul ramped up his rhetoric Thursday on the Senate floor, forcefully repeating his view that the United States government should not arm and train Syrian rebels in the fight against the Islamic State.

    This time, however, he took it a step further, saying that arming the Free Syrian Army could have devastating consequences for Israel.

    "There is not one of those jihadists," he told his fellow senators, "not one of those so-called moderate rebels that will recognize Israel. And if they win, they will attack Israel next."
