Bernie Sanders Goes After Israel With Baseless Claim

Axios recently reported that Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plan on reconvening a strategic working group aimed at throttling Iranian efforts to develop nuclear weapons. The step is a move in the right direction, considering Biden’s professed interest in restoring US relations with the Palestinian leadership.

Adding fuel to a potential fire between the two countries, progressive firebrand Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) decided to lash out at Israel in a February 24 tweet. As you can see from the tweet below, Sanders responded to a post by The New York Times, discussing Israel’s response, or lack thereof, to Palestinian needs for the COVID-19 vaccines.


Sanders slammed Israel, calling it an occupying country. Continuing, he characterized Netanyahu’s handling of spare vaccines as “outrageous.”

Perhaps, Sander’s time would be better spent trying to build a fire under the Biden administration’s efforts to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine more effectively at home. For some reason, he continues to struggle with getting supplies out nationwide.
