Bernie Sanders, a Vermont Senator who ran in the Democratic primaries prior to the November 2016 election, said that the US should not “support one country” run by a “right-wing” and “racist” government.
In an video clip published on CNN, Sanders explained: “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 [Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu is a right-wing politician who I think is treating the Palestinian people extremely unfairly.”
“What I believe, and you know the United States gives billions of dollars in military aid to Israel. What I believe is not radical,” he emphasized.
“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, you know, dare I say, racist government.”
