Bernie Sanders is the Jeremy Corbyn of the United States. Sadly, Sanders continues to get a pass for his deep-seated bias and animus against Israel, in part because Sanders is actually a Jew by birth. It is inconceivable to many Americans that a Jew can have such disdain for Israel, since most Americans are not aware of the phenomenon of self-hating Leftist Jews.
Watch the statements from Alan Dershowitz below. Dershowitz has been consistently wrong about the Democrat Party as it relates to Israel. However, his statements about Bernie Sanders are correct.

Bernie Sanders is also a total ignoramus on Israel and the Middle East. As such, Sanders has no knowledge or understanding of the value of U.S military aid to Israel. All Sanders cares about is appeasing the anti-Semites on the hard-Left. The safety of the United States and Israel means nothing to him. Watch the video below that explains the value of U.S military aid to Israel from General Chuck Wald: the Fmr. Deputy Commander, on U.S European Command.
Bernie Sanders says US should revisit foreign aid to Israel, part of which funds Iron Dome defense system
The senator from Vermont has long been a critic of Israel
By Fox News, May 17, 2021
As fighting between Israel and Hamas militants entered its seventh day on Sunday, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., called for a “hard look” at the billions in military aid the U.S. gives to Israel each year.
The devastation in Gaza is unconscionable. We must urge an immediate ceasefire. The killing of Palestinians and Israelis must end. We must also take a hard look at nearly $4 billion a year in military aid to Israel. It is illegal for U.S. aid to support human rights violations.

“The devastation in Gaza is unconscionable. We must urge an immediate ceasefire. The killing of Palestinians and Israelis must end,” the self-proclaimed democratic socialist tweeted Sunday. “We must also take a hard look at nearly $4 billion a year in military aid to Israel. It is illegal to support human rights violations.”
The U.S. military aid to Israel includes funding for its Iron Dome defense system, which intercepts short-range rockets and artillery shells.
Sanders, who twice ran for president as the Democratic candidate, has long been a critic of Israel. On the 2020 campaign trail, Sanders proposed leveraging military aid to Israel to push for a change in its policies toward Gaza.
“My solution is to say to Israel: ‘You get $3.8 billion every year. If you want military aid, you’re going to have to fundamentally change your relationship to the people of Gaza,’” Sanders said in October 2019. “In fact, I think it is fair to say that some of that should go right now into humanitarian aid.”
The latest outbreak of violence began in east Jerusalem last month, when Palestinians clashed with police in response to Israeli police tactics during Ramadan and the threatened eviction of dozens of Palestinian families by Jewish settlers. A focus of the clashes was the Al-Aqsa Mosque, a frequent flashpoint located on a hilltop compound revered by both Muslims and Jews.
Hamas began firing rockets toward Jerusalem on Monday, triggering the Israeli assault on Gaza.
