Far-Left Politicians Add to Anti-Israel Fodder With Their Remarks About Jerusalem
The past few days have seen an uptick in anti-Israel remarks made by various United States politicians, such as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. There is no shortage of others who have also made such pandering speeches at the behest of J Street and other rabidly anti-Israel groups. This recent spate of hateful rhetoric adds additional (lack of) moral justification and fodder to the Muslim terrorists who attempt to destroy Israel and conquer the holy city of Jerusalem. These far-left politicians have called for linking the U.S. support of Israel to Israel compromising on the truth about its history and the future of its survival. They have demanded that Israel relinquish large swaths of its capital city of Jerusalem, to be given to terrorist regimes. They have gone so far as to demand that the U.S. send more money to support the Hamas terrorist organization that controls Gaza and launches missiles at Israel by the thousands. Likewise, they want to send even more money to support the anti-democratic and violent “palestinian authority” that unabashedly pays “salaries” to terrorists who kill and injure Jewish people. To be sure, the terrorists don’t rely on these politicians to spark their terrorist attacks, but the encouragement — both political and financial — is associated with a certain enabling of the ever-spreading terrorism in the world. It is up to the people of the world to stand up for TRUTH and to fight back against these radical haters of Jerusalem and Israel. Ultimately, the terrorists and their supporters can never change the history, current reality and future of Jerusalem: The eternal unified capital of Israel. This article explains more…

Ex-UN Envoy Nikki Haley Blasts Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders for Plan to Condition US Military Aid to Israel on Humanitarian Relief for Hamas-Ruled Gaza

Former US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley blasted Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders for his pledge on Monday to force Israel to allocate part of its US military assistance toward humanitarian relief in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
At the national conference of the left-wing J Street lobby group in Washington, DC, Sanders said after being asked about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, “I would use the leverage of $3.8 billion,” referring to the military aid package.
“My solution is, to Israel, if you want military aid, you’re going to have to fundamentally change your relationship to the people of Gaza,” Sanders stated. “I would say that some of the $3.8 billion should go right now to humanitarian aid in Gaza.”
In response, Haley — widely considered to be a potential future Republican presidential candidate in the post-Donald Trump era — tweeted, “Just when you thought Bernie Sanders couldn’t get any more radical, he outdid himself. He wants to take money we give to Israel to defend itself from terrorists, and give it to Gaza, which is run by terrorists?? Unreal.”
“Why isn’t every other Dem pres candidate saying he’s wrong?” she asked.
Israeli Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein — a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party — also chimed in, tweeting, “@BernieSanders, stop talking nonsense.”
Taking umbrage at Sanders’ remark that “[w]hat is going on in Gaza right now, for example, is absolutely inhumane,” Edelstein said, “Just yesterday, I met with representatives of the EU during their visit to the Knesset, and I told them about the absurd claims regarding the economic situation in the Gaza Strip.”
“It’s time to put an end to these claims,” Edelstein declared, asserting that Gaza has “all the necessary means — they use the money earmarked for the public benefit in order to attack the State of Israel.”
