Bernie Sanders Jumps Headfirst into Democrats' Israel Problem

Linkedin Share

There are growing concerns among the democratic party that the radical leftists that they propped up in 2018 are a Trojan Horse of socialism and anti-Jewish sentiment.

Of course, this specific combination, socialism and anti-semitism, have long been shunned by the global community after the events of The Holocaust, perpetrated by none other than the Nazis.

In Congress today, there seems to be a swelling tide of Israel skepticism, with one representative in particular, Ilhan Omar, leading the charge.  Her repeated, offensive remarks about the Jewish people have been widely lambasted by her peers…

…that is until now.

He might not officially be a Democrat, but that hasn’t stopped Bernie Sanders from entering the party’s growing fray over how to deal with Ilhan Omar.

Sanders came to the defense of Rep. Omar, D-Minn., on Wednesday amid growing pressure from within her party over a series of recent remarks that have been viewed by some as anti-Semitic.

“Anti-Semitism is a hateful and dangerous ideology which must be vigorously opposed in the United States and around the world,” the Independent Vermont senator said in a statement.

“We must not, however, equate anti-Semitism with legitimate criticism of the right-wing, Netanyahu government in Israel.

“Rather, we must develop an even-handed Middle East policy which brings Israelis and Palestinians together for a lasting peace.”

Bernie continued.

“What I fear is going on in the House now is an effort to target Congresswoman Omar as a way of stifling that debate…That’s wrong,” the statement read.

Omar’s comments were not seen as “legitimate criticism” by a vast majority of Congress, however, with many public servants, on both sides of the aisle, rushing to condemn her antisemitic remarks…some of which played off of hateful and hurtful stereotypes of the Jewish people.
