Sickening anti-Semites. In an interview with the Jew-hating New York Times, the Democrat Party’s presidential candidates were tested on their willingness to criticize America’s greatest ally Israel. Naturally they were not tested on their willingness to criticize Iran, North Korea, or Venezuela. Just Israel. Anyways, the candidates were asked the question “Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights?” Predictably the clueless Democrats actually criticized Israel’s human rights record, despite Israel upholding the highest standards of human rights.
The Democrat Party’s presidential candidates conveniently neglected to mention the conditions that Israel is forced to defend its homeland and citizens under. They conveniently forgot about Palestinian anti-Semitism, and the barbaric incitement from the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. They forgot about the Palestinian “pay to slay” Jews policy. They conveniently forgot about thousands of Palestinian terror attacks against Israeli citizens, and failed to mention how Palestinians are used as human shields during times of conflict.
No Jewish American with brains or with dignity should support this anti-Semitic political party in any way. #JEXIT!
Queried on Israel and human rights, Democratic hopefuls offer guarded criticism
New York Times says it’s testing Democrats’ ‘willingness to criticize Israel,’ claims ‘few candidates’ would do so
By TOI Staff, June 21, 2019:
The New York Times published a series of video interviews in which it queried Democratic presidential hopefuls on, among other questions, whether “Israel meets international standards of human rights,” in what it described as an attempt to gauge their willingness to voice criticism of the Jewish state.
Most, the newspaper said, were reluctant to do so.
In the videos themselves, however, many offered guarded criticism or urged Israel to “get back” to upholding human rights. Some expressed their concern over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent public support for extending Israeli law to West Bank settlements, seen as a form of de facto annexation.
Senator Bernie Sanders an Independent from Vermont and the only Jewish candidate, responded, “I have great concerns about the role that Netanyahu is playing.”
“The role of the United States is to work with all of the entities in the region, including the Palestinians,” he continued. “And to do that in an even-handed way.”
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said, “I believe Israel doesn’t work to ensure human rights. There is more that could be done…. The current Israeli government has made a lot of mistakes that have hindered the peace process.”
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren granted that “Israel is in a really tough neighborhood.” While urging the need to work with Israel, which is a “strong ally” and a “liberal democracy,” Warren said the US should “encourage our ally the way we would encourage a good friend” towards peace negotiations.
“The current situation is not tenable,” she said. “It may be tenable for a week, it may be tenable for a month but it is not in the long-term interest of the Israelis or the Palestinians.”
Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, described Israel’s human rights record as “problematic and moving in the wrong direction under the current right-wing government.”
The Democrats never condemn Palestinian incitement.
The IDF is the most moral military in the world.
