“…Bernie Sanders is virtually alone in his condemnation of Israeli actions. ”
That Bernie. What a guy. He talks out of two sides of his mouth with the best of them. Jumping right in there with a sound bite about Israel to appeal to his so-called progressives adulators, while at the same time supporting Israel across the board.
“…in June of 2017, the Senate was undivided in voting to move the capital of Israel to Jerusalem. Eighty-nine Democratic and Republican senators, including Bernie Sanders, unanimously voted in favor of a resolution that not only “reaffirms the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 as United States law, and calls upon the President and all United States officials to abide by its provisions,” but also reinforces several myths about Israel that fly in the face of all evidence and show an unwavering commitment to supporting the Israeli oppression of Palestine.”
Funny how while all the war criminals were celebrating the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem (which Bernie helped accomplish) Israel was slaughtering civilians in Gaza (which Bernie expressed crocodile tears over). Go Bernie, Go!
Kinda like the way he blathers on about excessive military spending while supporting the boondoggle F-35 fighter jet. Oh, and by the way, apparently Israel has been the first to use Bernies favorite weapons system in combat.
What are the chances they either have or will field test it in Gaza on the captive audience there?
Bernie Sanders. A real mensch, that guy.
