Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) had plenty to say just weeks ago as Israel fought to protect it’s borders from Gaza terrorists seeking to infiltrate.

As reported on YWN, Hamas actually admitted that 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed on that day of violence were actually it’s members, many of whom were paid to engage in acts of terror against of Israel.

But that did’t sway Sanders, who is Jewish and lived on an Israeli Kibbutz in 1963.

As reported on YWN, in an interview with Deconstructed, Sanders said: “Instead of applauding Israel for its actions, Israel should be condemned. Israel has a right to security, but shooting unarmed protesters is not what it is about.”

Sanders also tweeted “Hamas violence does not justify Israel firing on unarmed protesters.”

However, the self-appointed defender of the innocent and expert on Middle East conflicts has chosen to remain silent as thousands of innocent Israelis were targeted by more than 100 rockets fired by Hamas terrorists from Gaza.

As reported on YWN, one of the rockets landed in front of a kindergarten, just minutes before the children were due to arrive.

Dozens of rockets were fired late at night, forcing thousands of Israelis to spend the night in protective shelters. Several rockets landed in people’s front yards, just feet from a catastrophe R”L.

Do the lives of innocent Israelis matter less than those of Palestinians engaged in acts of violence?

  1. Yes, hypocrite. Has anyone heard him say something rational or moral in the past few years? Has he begun a slip into dementia once he decided to run for president – developing these corrupt patterns of thought just to appeal to the illiterate, politically correct imbeciles who are voting age?

  2. We haven’t heard anything from the Schumer Yisroel either. Maybe the Jew hating, backstabbing, Kristen Gillibrand threatened him.
