Posted on 02/08/2016 11:13:49 AM PST by Nachum
Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders has tapped several critics of Israel to advise him on foreign policy, including one who has compared Israelis to âNazisâ and accused them of waging âa Holocaust.â
Sanders, who is Jewish and had family members slaughtered during the Holocaust, recently disclosed that his top foreign policy advisers include J Street, a dovish Middle East advocacy group that backs some of Congressâ most vocal critics of Israel, former assistant Secretary of Defense Larry Korb, and James Zogby, an Israel detractor who heads the Arab American Institute.
The inclusion of these advisers in the Sandersâ campaign, which has already come under fire for ignoring prominent Jewish-American political organizations, has prompted speculation from some that the presidential hopeful will pursue anti-Israel foreign policy priorities.
âBernie seems to care very little about foreign policy, and so his views are shaped inordinately by advisers,â said Noah Pollak, executive director of the Emergency Committee for Israel, an advocacy organization. âAnd now we know who those advisers are. Two of themâZogby and J Streetâare leading anti-Israel apologists for terrorism. By his association with these extremist groups, Bernie fails the commander-in-chief test.â

the D party bosses had better come up with a viable candidate really quick!!! Like, right away! (Unless the plan is to try to “stick” a R president with the Obama economic depression?)
Calling Dana Milbank!
As far as support for Israel goes, the Democratic Party does not believe in it. Further, it is actively anti-Israel. One could even say anti-Semitic.
