Sen Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to use threatened Tuesday to fight billions of dollars in aid to Israel as leverage, what he called “racism” of the Jewish state, the government, and go so far as to compare America’s Israel Alliance, its relationship with Saudi Arabia.
Sanders, one of the leading candidates for the Democratic presidential primary race, and an increasingly vocal critic of the Netanyahu government, said in a New Hampshire town hall event, that the United States should have a wider view on the Middle East and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in particular, and not always on the side of Israel.

“The government of the United States, a whole lot of money to Israel, and I think we can use that money to end some of the racism we have recently seen in Israel,” he said.
Sanders compared the situation of the United States, in Alliance with Saudi Arabia, which he called “a corrupt, murderous regime”, even though they are “good buddies of us”, while against Iran.
“You criticize both,” he said.
In terms of the absence of a permanent peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, Sanders has made clear that he does not blame only one side.

“The fault is not with Israel, you have very bad and corrupt Palestinian leadership, but the goal of the United States, is the merging together of people in the region to provide the Palestinians and the Israelis is a kind of sustainable peace, which for both parties, not just one.”

It has to be per-region, the cooperation with all people of all the countries in this area.” In this segment, Sanders also made the Saudi-Arabia-comparison and suggested, with the help of the leverage effect.
If elected, Sanders would be the first Jewish President. As such, he has not insisted on the New Hampshire case, that the opposition to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing government anti-Semitic.

Ilhan Omar, D., the be purchased with anti-Semitic language, in the adoption of supporters of Israel in America.

The U.S. state Department recently updated its definition of anti-Semitism to include “comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.”
Sanders has no such language. But his accusations that the Netanyahu government is racially drawn a rebuke from the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC, which has earlier this year is in the answer: “verbal abuse by political leaders against the democratically elected government of Israel is counterproductive to maintaining close relationships, and the promotion of peace.”
