Talk about chutzpah. HRC pens a blog on right-wing Times of Israel chiding Bernie for not being a good enough Jew:
“Protecting allies and partners like Israel is one of the most solemn duties of any Commander-in-Chief. Yet others in this race suggest we must remain ‘neutral’ in order to negotiate,”
Salon deals with this at some length in an article titled: Hillary Clinton “goysplains” to Bernie Sanders in Passover article, accusing him of betraying his people by criticizing Israel and noting the Times of Israel, the right-wing pro-Israel website where Clinton published her article, has previously published blog posts by Israel supporters that openly called for “genocide” of Palestinians, although it has subsequently deleted them after facing backlash.
As Salon notes:
many Jewish Americans are increasingly critical of the Israeli government and its oppression of the Palestinians, who have lived under brutal, illegal Israeli military occupation for approximately five decades and face intense institutional discrimination inside Israel, as the U.S. State Department itself acknowledged in a recent report.
In recent weeks, Sanders has come under bitter attack from the pro-Israel right-wing for criticizing Israel’s disproportionate attacks on Gaza and for pledging to be neutral on Israel-Palestine.
For the record, Sanders is proud of his Jewish heritage and had relatives killed in the Holocaust. This, in my book, is a new low for the HRC campaign, coming as it does on the eve of the New York primary. Is there anything Clinton will not do or say to gain votes?
