Bernie Sanders, a Jewish Candidate, takes an Anti-Israel Policy Position

Sen Bernie Sanders, I-VT, is a walking, talking contradiction. He has professed many times that he is proud of his Jewish heritage. He has also been one of the most vehement enemies of the State of Israel, so much so that he has threatened to withhold military aid to the Jewish state unless it caves into demands by its Palestinian enemies. Sanders’ stance contrasts with the pro-Israel policy being conducted by President Trump.

Fox News suggests that Sanders is being hurt among Jewish Democrats in the polls because of his anti-Israel policy position.

“According to a Morning Consult poll released in May, only 11 percent of Jewish Democrats supported Sanders. One reason for this low level of Jewish support is Sanders’ record of strongly opposing many Israeli actions and policies, along with his threats to reduce vital U.S. aid to Israel.

“This is combined with Sanders’ failure to take a strong stand opposing the global rise of anti-Semitism, along with his warm embrace of anti-Semites and forces hostile to Israel here at home.”

Sanders has opposed the Trump administration’s acknowledgment of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the moving of the American embassy to that city. He has criticized Israel’s policy toward Gaza, a terror state ruled by Hamas from where rocket and terror attacks are regularly launched against the Jewish state. Recently, Sanders, along with most of the rest of the Democratic candidates, criticized the decision by the Trump administration to no longer regard Jewish settlements on the West Bank as being contrary to international law.

The National Review, by the way, published a defense of Trump’s decision regarding West Bank settlements.

“And yesterday Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the United States would no longer take the position that Israeli civilian ‘settlements’ in the West Bank are ‘inconsistent with international law.’ (Or, as our German ambassador Richard Grenell aptly put it, the United States would ’no longer meddle in local Israeli zoning and building-permits issues.’) Many of those ‘settlements’ — cities, really, some of them in existence for decades — are part of a de facto border, and they are never going to be bulldozed. That’s also reality.”

Thus, with a stroke of a pen, Israeli settlers are no longer “occupiers” but rather residents of their ancestral homeland. The Palestinians have just paid a price for decades of intransigence and hostility toward Israel. Now they have to accept the new reality as the basis of a realistic peace.

Bernie, naturally, was having none of it. “Israeli settlements in the occupied territory are illegal,” said Sanders. “This is clear from international law and multiple United Nations resolutions. Once again, Mr. Trump is isolating the United States and undermining diplomacy by pandering to his extremist base.”

Bernie is also quite silent where it comes to the virulent anti-Semitism expressed not only by Palestinians in the Middle East but also among some of his supporters. He seems to give groups like Hamas and Fatah a pass where it comes to hostility toward the State of Israel and their desire to see that state wiped off the map. In effect, he blames Israel for the Palestinian attacks against it, in the view of the authors of the Fox News piece.

Bernie also likes to pretend that anti-Semitism is an exclusive product of white nationalists, ignoring the phenomenon when it comes from Middle Eastern sources. He is certainly blind to Jew-hatred from some of his supporters.

“Sanders has also been endorsed by anti-Semitic Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. Sanders has defended both Muslim congresswomen and now is campaigning hard to win the support of American Muslims for his presidential bid, including those who have expressed hostility to Israel.”

Tlaib and Omar have both promulgated anti-Semitic tropes, accusing Jewish Americans of dual loyalty and suggesting that American supporters of Israel are being bought off by wealthy Jews, who form a secret conspiracy that controls world governments.

Ironically, Donald Trump, who has been accused of racism and of stirring up racial hatred, has become the warmest friend of Israel and the foe of anti-Semitism wherever it occurs. No one has suggested that Bernie is himself anti-Semitic, though he is demonstrably tolerant of that ancient hatred. “Despite his own Jewish heritage and the terrible deaths of members of his own family who were among the 6 million who perished in the Holocaust, Sen. Sanders has shown us he is not ready to lead America in the fight against anti-Semitism today.”

    1. You are right. I don’t think I ever heard that he observed any of the Jewish holidays or even the sabbath.
      My feeling is that he is Jewish by birth only. If i’m wrong, I’d like to see proof.

    1. Everyone has to remember that Bernie is a decrepit fossil who swoon over AOC who also hates Israel and so he has to do his best to keep her happy because in the unlikely event that he would be elected President and didn’t die of a stroke because of overexcitement he is planning to appoint her as his official assistant to helping change the Presidential Depends

  24. Bernie Sanders, the Jackass bastard is a self hating Jew. I hope He rots in hell, where He belongs and definitely not in our Government!!

  25. We should deport Bernie to one of his beloved communist/socialist bastions, China, Russia, Cuba or perhaps Argentina. He is a disgrace to the judeo/christian world and his treasonous verbal repertoire against America should have him in jail rather than being paid by the taxpayers. He is an egeregious politico.

  26. And yet, there are still Jewish Americans who, as Democrats, support the one Political party that endorses “State sponsored genocide” and political and Cultural ANTI-SEMITISM! I’m sure there were Jewish Germans who never thought Hitler’s view of the future would affect them!!

  27. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I
    never found any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s pretty price enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you
    probably did, the web shall be much more useful than ever before.

  28. naturally like your website but you have to check the spelling on quite
    a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I
    in finding it very troublesome to tell the reality however I’ll surely
    come again again.

  29. I just like the helpful info you provide for your articles.
    I’ll bookmark your blog and test once more here frequently.
    I’m somewhat sure I’ll learn lots of new stuff
    right here! Good luck for the next!
