Sanders: I Would ‘Absolutely’ Consider Cutting Aid To Israel, Netanyahu Has Racist Tendencies


Sen. Bernie Sanders said that he would “absolutely” consider cutting aid to Israel during an interview with left-wing podcast Pod Save America on Friday.

“This is not easy stuff—to try to finally bring peace to the Middle East and to treat the Palestinian people with a kind of respect and dignity they deserve. Our policy cannot just be pro-Israel, pro-Israel, pro-Israel. It has got to be pro-region working with all of the people, all of the countries in that area.”

Sanders added that he is “pro-Israel” and that he believes “the people of Israel have absolutely the right to live in peace, independence, and security.” At the same time, however, he expressed disagreement with current Israel’s policies under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
