As another day passes, yet another controversy surfaces in the midst of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as she said that cutting U.S. military aid to Israel is “certainly on the table,” after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won re-election!
In fact, Fox News reported that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked Netanyahu on Yahoo’s Skullduggery podcast when she called Netanyahu a “Trump-like figure” who is part of “the ascent of authoritarianism across the world.”
“I think it’s certainly on the table….I hope to play a facilitating role in this conversation and a supportive role in this conversation. But I also know that there have been people leading on this for a long time, like Congresswoman [Betty] McCollum.”
Her reference to McCollum has to do with a bill that was introduced that claims that U.S. military aid was being used by Israel to illegally detain Palestinian children. McCollum also has attacked Israel’s National-State Law, which defines Israel as what it always has been and does not change the country’s Basic Law providing equal rights to all citizens.
Bernie Sanders has also called for pulling American assistance to Israel, stating in 2017 that he would “consider voting to reduce U.S. aid to Israel, valued at a minimum of $3 Billion per annum, or U.S. arms sales to the Israeli military.”
Also, Bernie Sanders said that…
The U.S. funding plays a very important role, and I would love to see people in the Middle East sit down with the United States government and figure out how U.S. aid can bring people together, not just result in an arms war in that area. So I think there is extraordinary potential for the United States to help the Palestinian people rebuild Gaza and other areas. At the same time, demand that Israel, in their own interests in a way, work with other countries on environmental issues.
Sanders also said that he would have the United States rebuild the Gaza strip, which is currently controlled by the terrorist organization HAMAS! Sadly, the Democrat Party of today has become the Party of anti-Semitism, the Party of hate, and a leader in the anti-Christian movement! Instead, they have opened their arms wide and befriended known terrorist groups and terrorist-tied organizations! A move that will have horrendous implications on America’s future, and the future of our children, and all generations that follow!
