Bernie Sanders’ tweet is full of lies and misinformation. However, we can’t expect anything else from this vicious anti-Israel bigot. Israel is not occupying anything. You can’t occupy land that belongs to you. And under the Oslo Accords, it is the Palestinian Authority that is responsible for distributing medication to their people. If Bernie Sanders actually cared about the Palestinian people, he would condemn the Palestinian Authority for the billions of dollars they waste on terrorist attacks against Israel. Get lost, Bernie.
Back in December, PALI officials bragged that that they had arranged to get four million doses of the vaccine. Why is Israel responsible for the terror statelet whose sole aim is to annihilate the Jewish state?
As the occupying power, Israel is responsible for the health of all the people under its control. It is outrageous that Netanyahu would use spare vaccines to reward his foreign allies while so many Palestinians in the occupied territories are still waiting. https://t.co/kx4qFPtRQl

Bernie Sanders slams Israel for not sending COVID vaccines to Palestinians
“It is outrageous that Netanyahu would use spare vaccines to reward his foreign allies while so many Palestinians in the occupied territories are still waiting.”
By Jerusalem Post, February 25, 2021US Senator Bernie Sanders criticized the Israeli government for sending COVID-19 vaccines to foreign allies before sending vaccines to Palestinians.Sanders was responding to a New York Times tweet stating that “Israel’s vaccine donations to faraway countries have angered Palestinians who say Israel is responsible for the well-being of Palestinians in the occupied territories, where vaccines are scarce.”Sanders claimed that “Israel is responsible for the health of all the people under its control,” Sanders tweeted. “It is outrageous that Netanyahu would use spare vaccines to reward his foreign allies while so many Palestinians in the occupied territories are still waiting.”As Israel began its vaccine rollout late last year, some activists and foreign media outlets criticized Israel for not including the Palestinians, arguing that under international law, Israel is the “occupying power” and must vaccinate them.Israel, has pointed out that the internationally recognized Oslo Accords state that the PA is responsible for its population’s healthcare, including vaccinations.Regardless of legal matters, the government has already sent thousands of doses of coronavirus vaccines to the PA and facilitated the entry of Russian donations of the Sputnik V vaccines.Last week, Netanyahu said Israel and the Palestinians were “in one epidemiological range.”“We have a clear interest that we don’t want illnesses and sick people to pass through our borders from the Palestinian Authority and Gaza,” he told Army Radio.
