Sanders threatens to leverage Israel aid to combat ’racism’

A leading candidate in the Democratic presidential primary race, Sen. Bernie Sanders, threatened to use billions of dollars in aid to Israel as ’leverage’ to combat ’racism’ from the Jewish state’s government. A critic of the Netanyahu government, he said during a New Hampshire town hall event on Tuesday that US should not always side with Israel in the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Hey Bernie. can we solve problems in the US before you try fixing other countries??? Maybe even just worry about the people that you supposedly represent.

"The US shouldn't always side with Israel " So they should side with Hamas Bernie? The side that wants to eradicate Jews and the state of Israel? There's limits to stupidity Bernie, just saying, you can stop anytime!

1. No country is above criticism. 2. Is there a single Israeli law based on race? No. 3. In the US, an accusation of racism is the usual beating stick ab/used by the leftists. Here it's being used for virtue signaling, nothing else.

Funny that Sanders says there’s a lot of racism in Israel... I was there two years ago and asked many people about how they felt about Palestinian arabs in their midst, working and living amongst them and what not, and the most frequent initial response ai got was a very weird look as though they didn’t even understand the question. This followed by a what do you mean? “They are all wonderful people. We all share the same values and live together very well.”

Just take it all away and invest that $38 billion in America for Americans. Taxpayer dollars should not be helping fund Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and or its blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Why give Israel money so they can enact racist policies? Our money our rules.

How much wall could Trump have already built with $3.8 billion per year?

Hmm, vote for a guy who doesn't want to support a democracy who faces terrorism from the extremely bigot nations surrounding it. Yeah, no thanks.

Democrats: We can’t afford to spend billions on a border wall, it’s too expensive and sinful! Also Democrats: we can totally afford billions to fix other countries and give everyone free healthcare!

I'm not surprised by how stupid this idea is. Granted, the tactic itself isn't bad, but the reasoning behind it is quite stupid in my opinion.
