Bernie Sanders Urges Public To “Embrace Zionism”

Bernie Sanders urges public to embrace zionism

Bernie Sanders told a conference held by a liberal Jewish American organization that the American public should embrace Zionism. 

Sanders, an independent senator from Vermont, told the audience that progressives should be more open to the founding principles of Zionism as well as the inherent justice of the Palestinian cause.

Jpost.com reports: Speaking before a conference held by J Street, a liberal Jewish American organization that primarily lobbies for a two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians, Sanders said that “those of us who support Israel have got to tell the truth about policies that hurt the chances of a peaceful resolution.”

“There is no question that we should be and will be Israel’s very strong friend and partner in years to come,” he said. “But we also need to recognize that the Israeli occupation runs contrary to American values and I believe, Israeli values as well.”

“We need to end this 50 year occupation,” he said.

But Sanders said it was “particularly important” for progressives in the Democratic Party to acknowledge the moral foundation of the Jewish state of Israel – a state that began as a progressive enterprise, he argued. Such an acknowledgment does not contradict the need for an independent and “dignified” Palestinian state.

Sanders campaigned for “balance” on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Democratic Party Platform last year after campaigning with unexpected success against Hillary Clinton for the party’s nomination. He ultimately lost, but secured enough support to earn significant representation on the party’s platform committee.

Sanders criticized US President Donald Trump for his failure to endorse Palestinian statehood and to wholeheartedly condemn antisemitism nationwide.

The democratic socialist linked a spike in antisemitic incidents with Trump’s political rise, and took note of his hesitance to speak out on the matter for weeks. Trump offered prepared remarks condemning antisemitism as an “evil scourge” last week.

    How obvious are these people going to get? Who cares about this meme. Bernie is a tool. He makes 7 figures to be a tool. Bigger tools makes 7 figures or better. Local tools who run towns and counties make 6 figures. But these people are getting obvious. Whatever they don’t just flat out scream out loud, they simply reverse with doublespeak coding. Bernie says “SUPPORT ZIONISM”. When is he going to admit that universal healthcare is for fat lazy drunk conservatards being sustained by polypharmacy and skinny (eating disorder) lazy drug addict liberals and any combo. And it’s goal, like zionism, is to weaken the population into nothingness and worthlessness so the people at top can have 15 mansions and 50 trucks and cars and dozens of acres of property and unspendable amounts money.

    The truth is basically all out. People just have to learn how to decipher it. If you don’t get it by now, or you don’t understand that these people are all tools and the current world is a big orchestrated circus act, or whatever you want to see it as, then you’re doomed. Ask yourself how fulfilling your life with mobile devices, TV, mindless underpaid work, and drugs is. Ask yourself what you’re going to do when it all goes away. When you realize it was all a sham and you wasted a quarter or half of your life. How was being a recluse and destroying the social lives and development of your children and selves worth it?
