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.
“I think what has happened is in recent years under Netanyahu, you have an extreme right-wing government with many racist tendencies.”
“We have spent trillions of dollars on the war on terror, and I, as president, would like to sit down in a room with the leadership of Saudi Arabia, with the leadership of Iran, with the leadership of the Palestinians, with the leadership of Israel and hammer out some damn agreements, which will try to end the conflicts that exist there forever.”

@BernieSanders Yes let’s cut off aid to THE ONLY DEMOCRACY in the Middle East & one of US’s biggest ally. US knowledge of many things that go on in the Middle East is directly bc of Israel’s domination of intel and security. Bernie, you can’t cut off your nose to spite your face.
