The SAME Democrats scolding Trump for ‘abandoning’ our ‘ally’ in the Kurds would be more than happy to pull US funding from Israel.
This, we remind you, is the same party whose House Leader went in front of a Jewish audience and solemnly told them that the BDS movement is a racist policy. In July, the House voted overwhelmingly — in a rare example of bipartisanship in the Trump era — to condemn BDS.
While the sparks of anti-Semitism are trying to be stomped out by some in the Democratic party, others are openly fanning the flames. The worst offenders seem to be the überleftists on The Squad and the ideological septuagenarian twinsies running in the Democratic primaries — Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
Pocahontas grabbed that one and hung onto it for when it became useful on the campaign trail. You know, the way that she stole the rest of Bernie’s ideas.
“Right now, Netanyahu says he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements, [but] that does not move us in the direction of a two-state solution,” Warren responded when asked what her stance was on aid and settlement-building.
“It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then everything is on the table,” she said, before repeating: “Everything is on the table.”

She’s said something like this before.
Elizabeth Warren insists that the US can’t dictate the terms of Israeli-Palestinian peace, but she doesn’t acknowledge that the United States finances the Israeli military. That’s leverage. Her explanation of the conflict leaves out the most crucial parts. pic.twitter.com/EmFRLYzTPu

That’s pretty gross considering that Israel is the lone functioning democracy in the Middle East. Sure, it’s a Jewish state, but it doesn’t forbid Arabs and Christians from living there.
And yes, the situation in the Middle East is a complex one, but when one side says, “We want to push all Jews into the sea” it doesn’t leave much room for negotiation. As well, the continuing attacks on Israeli civilians by Palestinian terrorists is a massive problem with peace, especially when the Palestinian government rewards the families of those terrorists. What’s the negotiation going to look like? “No, you can’t kill all of the Jews, but we’re willing to consider half…”
NO. JUST NO.
Genocide should be off the table, period.
The comments on Twitter were a mixed bag, but some were quite insightful.
If Trump said that, The Hill wouldn’t hesitate to declare it proof of his anti-semitism.

Bernie just got the squads endorsement. She doesn’t want to lose the Anti-Semitic base they represent.

Is she saying that if they don’t do a quid pro quo she will cut their aid?
I thought that was impeachable.

Now there’s a good question!
But really, the best response to this was from Twitter user, AG Conservative in two short tweets.
Just once someone needs to ask these politicians how settlements are a bigger obstacle to peace and a two-state solution than official Palestinian government support and payments to reward terrorism against civilians…

This is 100 percent correct.
