During Bernie Sanders time on stage for CNN Democrat Town Hall he called the Israeli Government racist. Bernie Sanders did not give examples to how they are racist, but decided to slander the whole government as a swamp filled with racists.
A young man asked Bernie Sanders, “You’ve been an outspoken critic of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, yet Israel is also one of America’s most important allies in the world. Given that Prime Minister Netanyahu just won another term in office, how do you plan to maintain the strong U.S.-Israel relationship despite those critiques?”
Bernie Sanders responded, “As a young man about your age, I spent a number of months in Israel. I worked on a kibbutz for a while. I have family in Israel. I am not anti-Israel but the fact of the matter is that Netanyahu is a right-wing politician who, I think, is treating the Palestinian people extremely unfairly.”
Bernie Sanders concluded, “So what I believe is the United States gives billions of dollars in military aid to Israel. What I believe is not radical. I just believe that the United States should deal with the Middle East on a level playing field basis. In other words, the goal must be to try to bring people together and not just support one country, which is now run by a right-wing, dare I say, racist government.”
