Of course. The self-hating Jew Bernie Sanders answers to the jihadis. He answers to Sarsour, Zogby, Omar, Tlaib, and CAIR.
It must end the Israeli occupation and enable Palestinian self-determination in an independent state of their own alongside a secure Israel. Trump's so-called 'peace deal' doesn't come close, and will only perpetuate the conflict. It is unacceptable.

Denouncing Trump Plan as ‘Unacceptable,’ Sanders Declares It Is Time to ‘End the Israeli Occupation’
“Trump’s so-called ‘peace deal,'” warned the White House hopeful, “will only perpetuate the conflict, and undermine the security interests of Americans, Israelis, and Palestinians.”
By Common Dreams, January 29, 2019:
After U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday unveiled his long-awaited “peace deal” for the Israel-Palestine conflict, Sen. Bernie Sanders condemned the proposal as “unacceptable” and called for an end to Israel’s decades-long occupation of Palestinian territories.
Sanders (I-Vt.), a top candidate in the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential primary race, responded to Trump’s plan in pair of tweets, envisioning a U.S. policy that promotes “a just and durable agreement.”
The tweets aligned closely with a statement from the senator’s office, in which Sanders said any acceptable deal “must end the Israeli occupation that began in 1967 and enable Palestinian self-determination in an independent, democratic, economically viable state of their own alongside a secure and democratic state of Israel.”
Sanders, who would be the first Jewish president, added that “Trump’s so-called ‘peace deal’ doesn’t come close, and will only perpetuate the conflict, and undermine the security interests of Americans, Israelis, and Palestinians.”
The White House hopeful’s comments Tuesday were not the first time Sanders has spoken out in recent months for the Palestinian people. In October 2019, the senator suggested using the billions of dollars in military aid that the United States supplies to Israel each year to pressure Netanyahu’s government to end its horrific treatment of Palestinians.
Sanders was far from the only lawmaker to decry Trump’s new plan, which was drafted under the direction of Jared Kushner—the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser—and unveiled at the White House with Israeli Prime Benjamin Netanyahu.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), one of Sanders’ rivals in the primary race, tweeted Tuesday that “Trump’s ‘peace plan’ is a rubber stamp for annexation and offers no chance for a real Palestinian state.”
“Releasing a plan without negotiating with Palestinians isn’t diplomacy, it’s a sham,” Warren added. “I will oppose unilateral annexation in any form—and reverse any policy that supports it.”
Read the response from the Sanders’ surrogates.
No way in hell will Palestinians accept a peace plan from an impeached American president and an indicted Israeli Prime Minister. Both these men have no real desire for peace & are only playing to their bases on the backs of Palestinians.

It’s stunning that @realDonaldTrump doesn’t know that this is insulting to Palestinians. It’s not a “state” it’s a “Bantustan.” Palestinians lose more land w/out sovereignty & independence. Israel gets more land & keeps settlements. It’s Trump’s plan to try to legalize illegality https://t.co/RDE6iJ0krf
