Bernie Sanders Threatens Israel If They Don’t Stop Bombing

via Senator Bernie Sanders on Youtube

Bernie Sanders criticized the Israeli government for its actions against Palestinian civilians in Gaza and called for a change in Israel’s military strategy in order to receive aid from the U.S.

“We’ll see what the bill looks like. But it is terribly important that as we debate that we say to Israel, you want this money, you gotta change your military strategy,” Sanders said.

“The other point is we have to give hope to the Palestinian people. They were living in, before Oct. 7, in a disastrous situation in Gaza. Seventy-five percent youth unemployment, massive poverty. And right now in Israel, you’re having the Netanyahu government, an extreme right-wing government, with racists aboard, trying to make it impossible for a two-state solution in the West Bank, they’re killing settlers there.”

He emphasized the need for a two-state solution and for wealthy Middle Eastern nations to provide hope and freedom to the Palestinians.

The House passed a bill to fund military aid to Israel, but it is opposed by most Democrats.

Sanders opposes a ceasefire and supports Israel’s right to defend itself, stating that Hamas needs to be dealt with.

He called for an end to the bombing and a two-state solution to provide hope for the Palestinian people.

“I think what the Arab countries in the region understand — that Hamas has got to go,” Sanders said. “So, what we need right now, the immediate task right now, is to end the bombing, to end the horrific humanitarian disaster, to build, go forward with the entire world for a two-tiered, two-state solution to the crisis to give the Palestinian people hope.”
