Bernie Sanders remarks on Gaza rocket fire draws scathing criticism



Bernie Sanders is the Jeremy Corbyn of the United States: a vicious anti-Semitic and pro-jihad Leftist. Like Jeremy Corbyn, Bernie Sanders must be stopped.

BERNIE SANDERS REMARKS ON GAZA ROCKET FIRE DRAWS IRE FROM ISRAELIS, PALESTINIANS

THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE HOPEFULLY’S THURSDAY NIGHT TWEET DREW SCATHING CRITICISM ACROSS THE BOARD.

Israel Hayom, November 16, 2019:
Bernie Sanders – who is vying for the Democratic Party’s nomination in 2020 – drew ire from Jew and Palestinians when he weighed in on Israel’s ongoing conflict with Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
In a tweet posted Thursday night, Sanders said that Israelis “should not have to live in fear of rocket fire.” However, in the same breath, he also remarked that “Palestinians should not have to live under occupation and blockade.”

He then called on the US to “lead the effort” to bring peace between Israel and Gaza.
The statement, made well after several Democratic Party heavyweights already chimed in and backed Israel’s right to defend itself, was seen by Jewish groups and Israeli politicians as drawing a false moral equivalence between Israel and terrorists.
Israel’s former ambassador to the US, Danny Ayalon, slammed Sanders’s statement.
“This isn’t a ‘he-said/she-said’ crisis with identical sides. One side is America’s closest ally in the Mideast. The other side celebrated on 9/11,” he said.
The CEO of the American Jewish Committee agreed, calling his take “moral equivalence on steroids.”

“100s of rockets [are] fired at Israel. Millions of Israelis in bomb shelters,” Harris said. “Yet no yet no mention that Israel left Gaza in 2005. No mention of Hamas or Islamic Jihad. No mention of their genocidal intent. No mention of Israel’s right to defend itself.”
Yet, Sanders did have some supporters in his corner.
Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, for example, responded to Harris and said, “Israel is the clear aggressor. You forget to mention that Israel withdrew from Gaza, YET control the border, the airspace, and the sea. They have continued to maintain a deadly blockade on Gaza strangling 2 million people.”
