And when a pro-Israel American is beaten or killed by one of his voters, Sanders will call it “legitimate criticism” of Israel as well. It is appalling that pro-Israel Jewish groups are not confronting Sanders for his anti-Semitism.
Pro-Israel Jewish Americans do not have a greater enemy then Bernie Sanders. That is because it is possible that Bernie Sanders will be the next President of the United States.
“Bernie Sanders Defends Ihlan Omar: Don’t Equate ‘Anti-Semitism’ With ‘Legitimate Criticism’ of Israel,” by Tamer Auber, Mediaite, March 6, 2019:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has issued a statement calling efforts to issue a veiled rebuke of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) “wrong” and warning that such a rebuke – as proposed by Democratic leadership – would ultimate “stifle” Middle East debate.
“Anti-Semitism is a hateful and dangerous ideology which must be vigorously opposed in the United States and around the world. We must not, however, equate anti-Semitism with legitimate criticism of the right-wing, Netanyahu government in Israel,” Sanders said in the statement published on Wednesday. “Rather, we must develop an even-handed Middle East policy which brings Israelis and Palestinians together for a lasting peace.
The statement continues on: “What I fear is going on in the House now is an effort to target Congresswoman Omar as a way of stifling that debate…That’s wrong.”
It is shameful that House Democrats won’t take a stronger stand against Anti-Semitism in their conference. Anti-Semitism has fueled atrocities throughout history and it’s inconceivable they will not act to condemn it!
