Wow, Bernie's a self-hating Jew?
In recent days, a group calling itself Democrats Against Anti-Semitism has begun an earnest campaign to inject the discourse with the idea that Bernie Sanders, historically the leading Jewish politician ever to run for president, is an antisemite because of his positions on Israel. That group joins New York Times opinion editor Bari Weiss and others in seizing on the urgent task of vilifying Sanders. They evidently aim to “Corbyn-ize” him, by parroting smears used effectively against the UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
I see nothing more racist than people of Jewish faith/ heritage referring to themselves a race. And somehow criticising a supposed "secular & democratic" nation less than 100 yes old is also racist. Even a special word for this particular racism; antisemitic.
If you identify with a group and feel your group is superior to others, then it is you who will be discriminatory towards others.
Israel is not a kibbutz, it is a nation ffs. And Jews are people just like the rest of us. And the people of Israel tolerate right wing leaders for their country, who treat Israel like a kibbutz, a Jewish enclave, rather than an equal member nation of the world community. And Israel is fairly criticised for this attitude.
DAT the way I see it. Jews are people, and all groups of people have their fair share of dickheads.
Now if Israeli politicians participate in Sander's bashing, how loud will the cries of "foreign interference" be? Not very I feel.
Many consider Sanders to be leaning Zionist. He has only himself to blame for the divisive views towards him on Israel. While the article postures him as a genuine advocate for the Palestinians he has left a well open for other notions through his actions and or lack of actions. If this link works out you can search through some other sides of the story.
