Senator Bernie Sanders took time away from character assassinating Brett Kavanaugh last week. That is because Sanders would never miss a chance to discuss damaging Israel. This past week, some of the vilest Arab Muslim members of the Israeli Knesset arrived in Washington, DC. They came to Washington to meet with Democrat lawmakers, to draft support against Israel’s Nation-State law. These Arab MK’s knew that that they would have a receptive lawmaker in the dreadful Bernie Sanders.
Bernie Sanders is the most anti-Israel member of congress. By far. Sanders is depending on the support from Israel-hating voters such as Linda Sarsour, which he will need to win the Democrat Party’s presidential primaries in 2020. As a result, Sanders has intensified his sharp criticism of Israel. Sanders has demonized Israel on numerous occasions for defending itself against Hamas. Sanders has also lied about the nature of the “Palestinian” protests on Israel’s border with Gaza, by calling them peaceful protests.
Sanders recently wrote an op-ed in the Atlantic about Israel’s Nation-State law. Sanders stated that the law “essentially codifies the second-class status of Israel’s non-Jewish citizens.” Once again, Sanders lied. Unlike every country in the Middle East, all of Israel’s citizens enjoy full human rights. This is a fact that will not change with the implementation of Israel’s Nation-State law. It is the Arab MK’s whom Sanders chose to legitimize, that support second class status for Jews! In fact, they would likely support expulsion and genocide of the 6.7 million Jews who live in Israel.
If Sanders were a genuine advocate for human rights (which he clearly is not unless it benefits him politically), he would condemn these bigoted and hateful Arab MK’s, who don’t believe Jews should have any human rights in their ancestral homeland. If Sanders sincerely wanted to combat bigotry (which he clearly does not unless it benefits him politically), he would have condemned these Arab MK’s for their support of the bigoted BDS movement. Senator Sanders would never do that, because Senator Sanders is not an advocate for human rights or equal rights for all. Senator Sanders (like most leftists) is an advocate for jihadists. Senator Sanders is also a vicious anti-Semite and rabid Israel-hater. Americans should be very concerned about this radical left-wing zealot.
“Arab MK asks Bernie Sanders to act against Nation-State Law,” by Gil Hoffman, Jerusalem Post, October 1, 2018:
Arab MK Jamal Zahalka and Adalah general director Hassan Jabareen met over the past week with several US congressmen and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to draft their support against the controversial Nation-State Law, a Joint List spokesman said Monday.
Since the law was passed July 19, Joint List MKs have tried to persuade international figures in the European Union, the United Nations, the Arab League, and the United States to take action against the law. They are also challenging it in the Supreme Court, but the case will only be heard in January.
In the meeting with Sanders, Zahalka praised him for speaking out against the law and writing in The Guardian three weeks ago that it “essentially codifies the second-class status of Israel’s non-Jewish citizens.”
“The struggle for equality and justice knows no borders and those who fight for such values in the US will fight an anti-democratic, racist and discriminatory law in Israel as well,” Zahalka said.
Jabareen said there was no such constitutional law in the world. Zahalka told the congressmen the bill sanctions discrimination, removes rights of Palestinians and legalizes apartheid….
