I think he's made his position clear in certain ways but not in others.
As for his being trustworthy and/or truthful: I'd rather not associate someone's abstract beliefs with inherent strength of character or the lack of it. Anti-Semitism is an example of how wrong that supposition can go.
His credo might seem to you to be an excuse for his own unethical conduct elsewhere, but to assume it is truly such an excuse is to claim access to his unstated motives and intentions -- and that can't be verified.
