Bernie Sanders is running for President (in part) on relentlessly vilifying Israel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bernie Sanders claims to be pro-Israel. Yes, and Jeremy Corbyn claims that he is not an anti-Semite. Never has someone who is running for President been so openly anti-Israel.
At the recent CNN town hall, Sanders falsely accused Prime Minister Netanyahu of racism and of being a “right wing” politician who treats the Palestinians unfairly. Why is that? Because Netanyahu will not allow Palestinian terrorists to storm Israeli towns for the purpose of butchering Israeli citizens.
Sanders will never condemn Mahmoud Abbas and the racist Palestinian Authority for their horrific vilification of Jews, their support of terrorism, and the monstrous anti-Israel incitement that is taught in Palestinian schools.
In addition, Sanders continues to oppose legislation to fight the bigoted BDS Movement, and he continues to employ supporters of the BDS Movement in his campaign, and he continues to embrace the most vile of racists and anti-Semites, most notably Linda Sarsour, Jeremy Corbyn, and James Zogby.
Naturally, America’s inept Jewish leaders will continue to allow the anti-Semitic Bernie Sanders to defame Israel (which is now happening on a weekly basis) unchallenged. It is a shocking disgrace.
“Bernie Sanders slams Netanyahu’s government as ‘racist,'” by Max Greenwood, The Hill, April 22, 2019:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) decried the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “racist” on Monday, calling Jerusalem’s treatment of Palestinians “completely unfair.”
Sanders, speaking at a CNN town hall, called the prime minister’s coalition a “right-wing, dare I say racist, government.”
But Sanders, who is vying for the Democratic presidential nomination, also defended his stance on the Jewish state, saying that he is not “anti-Israel,” but believes that the United States needs to level the playing field in its relations with Middle Eastern countries.
“I am not anti-Israel. But the fact of the matter is Netanyahu is a right-wing politician who I think is treating the Palestinian people completely unfair,” Sanders said during a town hall event hosted by CNN.
“What I believe is not radical. I just believe that the United States should deal with the Middle East on a level playing field basis.”
The comments came less than two weeks after Netanyahu managed to hold onto power following a close election.
