Bernie Sanders Condemns Israel’s Brutalization of Palestinian Protesters


Try anybody else! – Poor customer service, arrogant techs, impolite & unable to get the job done. Robert Frawley, northern ca, usa, tophandwesternart


Approximately 20,000 peaceful Palestinian protesters gathered on the Gaza-Israel border for the annual ‘March of Great Return’ only to be brutalized by the Israeli Defense Force. They shot more than 700 peaceful protesters and kiIIed 17. The only U.S. Senator to condemn the Israeli government’s actions (at this point) is Bernie Sanders. We’ll share his comments in this segment.

    Peaceful protest? Most of the people who got killed were Hamas active officers. Also do you call a protest peaceful for throwing stones, Molotovs and fireworks peaceful?

    Gee I wonder if CNN will bring this incident up in their next gun control debate.

    PEP Progressive Except for Palestine, I have a lot of problems with this, how about as a progressive I do not want to take a stance on a conflict that does not concern me and that I don't and probably never will fully understand. Don't let bullshit divide the movement.

    Go Bernie. Amazing absence of MSM coverage. Good story here at The Real News Network – http://therealnews.com/t2/story:21486:Israel-Massacres-Unarmed-Gaza-Protesters%2C-Shooting-773-with-Live-Ammunition

    lets reanimate the crusaders so we can take back jerusalem and stop the unarmed protesters from being killed.

    Dear Mike, this brings back memories of #StandingRock #NoDAPL where peaceful water protectors were arrested (without habeas corpus, thank you Obama!) and brutalized by police (= Obama!). Sophia Wilansky's arm was ruined, Vanessa Dundon lost her eye, journalist Deia Scholsberg was arrested and faces 45 years prison. When I see the words of the #MarchOfGreatReturn protesters, "We are not here to fight; we are here to return to our lands.", I think of how the Native Americans must feel. Thank you Mike for making this video. Love and solidarity from Amsterdam <3

    A lot of Americans see protest as something that is dirty, bad mannered or even shameful. Something that is regularly reinforced by corporate news reporting. But normal people standing up and asking their views to be counted without suffering violent repercussions is an obvious sign of a truly free, democratic society. If you nor your friends are ever doing this, you have to ask yourselves, do you actually live in a free country?

    Lucky you guys. Currently if we attar the word Israeli/Jew or anything alike we get 14 day + of Jeremy Corbyn (leader of the real social dem labour party) being an anti-sami by MSM+Blairites+Tories.

    It's not that Bernie Sanders is so good, it's the the Democrats are SO fucking terrible.
    No one should get credit for siding with the dead, peaceful protesters, but again, the Democrats are SO TERRIBLE, Bernie stands out.
    He's a decent man who represents the majority. Oh…and criticizes mass murderers.

    Anyone who speaks out against the Israeli government is labeled anti-Semitic, you can't criticise a a far right political party in Israel, even critical Jews are silenced…

    The Palestinians and their buddies, Hamas, are learning that the Israelis aren't a bunch of candy asses. You mess with them and you get your ass shot and that's the way it should be. I don't understand why the left in this country sides with the Palestinians and their terrorist buddies, Hamas.

    Reports claim, the so called unarmed protester, threw a rock at the IDF. They then returned fire…..

    Submitted the following via sanders.senate.gov/contact/comment after emailing Nelson, Rubio and Rooney, as well as sending a link to Mike Figuerado, Lee Camp and Jimmy Dore. Don't honestly expect any response out of any of them, but speaking truth to power is like pissing on a rock, if enough of us do it we eventually wear it away.

    [
    Senator Sanders,

    Your milquetoast comments on the IDF's latest atrocities in Gaza have garnered widespread praise as a courageous condemnation of Israel's ethnic cleansing. I therefore wonder if you would care to comment on Abby Martin's interview with Miko Peled about his new book, "Injustice: The Story of the Holy Land Foundation Five."

    Thank you for your consideration. I request, and look forward to, a response.
    —–
    Remember the USS Liberty, Rachel Corrie and countless other victims of Israeli terrorism; bring the perpetrators to account.

    Bernie has some good points but IMO the U.S. would be a shitty mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Too much AIPAC/Sheldon Adelson money will influence and ultimately corrupt the process. This is yet another in a ballooning list of reasons why Corporate PAC money should be expelled from politics and the mass media.

    thank you.. for calling out Senator Merkley and Senator Warren for their absolute ingratiating of Israel and the denial of Palestinian national aspirations ..they are an absolute disgrace .. dripping in hypocrisy as so-called progressives..

  • arnold trogman
    Posted at 23:17h, 08 April

    Bernie Sanders does support the lifting of the siege of Gaza and would not veto Palestinian statehood at the United Nations like Hillary Clinton or Obama did.. or Trump will.. he supports a massive jobs program for Palestinian youth as well as giving Palestinians control of their water .. these aren't unimportant and should be included in your analysis..

    Hey Mike, you call Bernie's statement "a strong stance" against Israel. He called the shooting of peaceful demonstrators and reporters "a tragedy in Gaza"! He also asked for the two sides to be forced at the table (same old sorry American false equivalency). A strong stance would have been to call for revoking the $4B/year handout to the apartheid state of Israel until they end the occupation, stop expanding into Palestinian land, stop apartheid in Israel proper, and allow right of return to the Palestinians in the diaspora. That would be a strong stance Mike!
