In a recent podcast Bernie Sanders said that America’s Middle East policy should not be pro-Israel. That is because Bernie Sanders wants America’s Middle East policy be anti-Israel, pro-jihad, and anti-America. When Bernie Sanders says that he believes “the people of Israel have absolutely the right to live in peace, independence, and security. End of discussion,” he is lying through his teeth.
Sanders’ campaign is staffed with Jew-haters, who despise Israel. Sanders has been endorsed by BDS supporter Linda Sarsour. Sanders has also fund raised for Ilhan Omar and has defended Rashida Tlaib, despite their open support for the BDS Movement. Sanders also flew to London to campaign for BDS supporter and anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn. In 2016, Sanders appointed three supporters of the BDS Movement to the Democrat Party platform committee as well. One can not say that they support Israel, while aligning with people who advocate for Israel’s eradication.
Sanders had the audacity to say “I think what has happened is in recent years under Netanyahu, you have an extreme right-wing government with many racist tendencies,” when most segments of Palestinian society teach racism of Jews (here, here) that is reminiscent of Nazi-Germany. Sanders also doesn’t mention how prominent Palestinians deny the Holocaust while embracing the Nazi regime for their genocide of Europe’s Jews.
Sanders also admitted that he would consider using the military aid the U.S. sends to Israel each year as leverage, to force PM Netanyahu to “change his actions, when defending Israel’s citizens against jihadists. Let Sanders try. Netanyahu has spent his life defending Israel against some of the worst Jew-haters and jihadists on the planet. Netanyahu would have no problem telling the feeble Sanders what he can do with his aid. It is Democrats such as Bernie Sanders that are forcing Israel to engage China.
If elected President, Sanders would be lethal to Israel. Worst then Obama and much worse than Carter. Jewish groups must expose Bernie Sanders for the anti-Semitic Israel-hater that he is, they way British Jews have exposed Jeremy Corbyn. #Jexodus!
Bernie Sanders: US policy in Mideast can’t be ‘pro-Israel, pro-Israel, pro-Israel’
By Fox News, July 27, 2019:
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders said Friday that U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East cannot be “pro-Israel.”
The Democratic 2020 presidential candidate, who is Jewish and has lived in Israel in the past, made the remark Friday on the “Pod Save America” podcast.
“Our policy cannot just be pro-Israel, pro-Israel, pro-Israel,” Sanders said. “It has got to be pro-region, working with all of the people, all of the countries in that area.”
The independent from Vermont said he fervently believes that “the people of Israel have absolutely the right to live in peace, independence, and security. End of discussion,” but added he has an issue with the way Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has run the country in recent years, the Washington Examiner reported.
“I think what has happened is in recent years under Netanyahu, you have an extreme right-wing government with many racist tendencies,” Sanders said, blaming the prime minister for worsening tensions between Israel and the Palestinians. Sanders also criticized President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the holy city of Jerusalem, something he believes put peace negotiations with Palestinians at risk.
In May, the Trump administration officially opened the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, in a historic move cheered by Israelis but met with mass protests from Palestinians that turned deadly in the lead-up to the ceremony. Clashes at the border had left dozens of Palestinians dead and hundreds wounded by the time the ceremony ended. But Israel’s prime minister praised the Israeli security forces for protecting the Gaza-Israel border, as U.S. officials held out hope that the prospect of peace remained in reach.
