YES. BERNIE DARED.

Israeli Wall, a wall Donald Trump must envy. 

I will remain open-minded and practical until election day, but I have to applaud Bernie Sanders for his recent statements concerning Israel during his debate with Hillary Clinton. It was courageous for him to be honest about his opinions on the treatment of Palestinians by the Israeli government.

Bernie, as quoted from www.feelthebern.org“…the bottom line is that Israel must have the right to exist in peace and security, just as the Palestinians must have the right to a homeland in which they and they alone control their political system and their economy.”

This just follows the basic human rights philosophy of the United Nations and other international organizations. However, it is in stark contrast to the defensive posture of many American Zionists and the politicians who take their money. Bernie has publicly challenged the prejudice that all genetic Jews support Israeli-Palestinian apartheid as a defensive strategy. And, this comes from a person who has generational links with Holocaust victims.
