Socialist Sanders Abandoning Israel

Letter to the Editor:

Socialist Sanders appointed two anti-Israel people to his platform drafting committee. Cornel West espouses anti-Israel views, and James Zogby, President of the Arab American Institute, has denounced Israel. Sanders also appointed Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota, an anti-Israel Muslim, to his platform committee.

Sanders, who honeymooned in Russia, and his left wing followers epitomize a major shift in the Democratic Party concerning Israel. A recent Pew Research Center survey showed "liberal Democrats were twice as likely to sympathize with Palestinians over Israel than they were two years ago."

The dumb Jew haters have come out of the woodwork to demonize Israel. Their hatred makes them overlook the huge role Israel plays in projecting U.S. interests in the Middle East.

Thankfully, Hillary Clinton, and the Republicans and Libertarians are strong supporters of U.S./Israel relations, and they have a deep understanding of world affairs.
