Former Sanders adviser: 'Israel will be eliminated'
inn ^ | 4/20/16 | David Rosenberg

Posted on 04/20/2016 9:49:05 PM PDT by Nachum

Retired US Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson is no stranger to controversy, with a legacy of questionable statements on Israel and the US government.

In 2013 the former chief of staff for then-Secretary of State Colin Powell suggested that Israel was responsible for the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

In 2007 Wilkerson appeared in a Dutch documentary, claiming that American foreign policy was dominated by “the Jewish lobby”.

Despite his history of inflammatory rhetoric and frequent conspiracy theories, Wilkerson was tapped to serve as a military and foreign policy adviser for the Bernie Sanders campaign in 2015.

In the wake of yet another controversial interview, however, it appears that the Sanders campaign dropped Wilkerson, a point Wilkerson noted while speaking earlier this month to The Real News Network.

“The last time I spoke this way on your show, I compromised my ability to work for the Bernie Sanders Campaign. So now I’ve probably foreclosed my ability to work for anyone.”

True to form, the former Sanders adviser made yet another series of over-the-top claims during the interview, asserting among other things that Israel had “captured” the US government, a common claim employed by fringe elements and white supremacists.

What a loon. This yob totally ignores that Israel has not sought expansion at all. They have gotten more land each time they were attacked. He also lacks any Biblical perspective. How in the world did he get to be Powell’s chief of staff?

I wonder if anyone has asked Powell or Cheney or GWB to disavow the retired colonel?

"Israel will NOT go without a VERY big bang."

In which case I would fully expect them to exercise The Samson Option.

Really ought to read a Bible there, Larry. You’re in for a big surprise as to how it ends. Hint: You’re dead wrong.

Of course you can join up with the fools who try to erase Israel..........we already know how that goes for ya.

Pick a side. Quickly.

Israel will not go. 1/3 survive the Great Tribulation (Zechariah 13, Matthew 24, etc.). This is called The Remnant.

They will return and stay there forever. Well, you got the 1,000-year Millennial Reign of Christ, another Gog-Magog war, and then eternity, where the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven to the old Jerusalem.

Bottom line, this guy betting on Israel being gone, especially forever, is so wrong it’s beyond laughable.
