    Bernie Sanders: Some US aid money to Israel should go to Gaza

    WASHINGTON (JTA) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders earned cheers at J Street’s annual conference when he said some of the money Israel receives from the United States for defense assistance should go to humanitarian relief in the Gaza Strip.

    The liberal Jewish Middle East policy group as one of its conference themes this year wants to press the Democratic candidates on whether they would demand from Israel an end to settlement expansion as a condition of receiving U.S. aid.
    Among the five candidates to speak in person at the conference, Sanders, the Jewish senator from Vermont, was the most robustly in favor of pressuring Israel. The others who spoke live at a convention center here were Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Michael Bennet of Colorado; Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana; and former U.S. housing secretary Julian Castro.
    Another five candidates — former Vice President Joe Biden; Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas; author Marianne Williamson; and entrepreneur Andrew Yang — delivered video messages.
    “I would use the leverage, $3.8 billion is a lot of money and we cannot give it carte blanche to the Israeli government, or any government,” Sanders said.
    Asked specifically how he would address the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, which is under the control of the Hamas terrorist group, Sanders said, “My solution is, [to say] to Israel, if you want military aid, you’re going to have to fundamentally change your relationship to the people of Gaza. I would say that some of that $3.8 billion should go right now to humanitarian aid in Gaza.”

    I got a better and more principled idea: How about no foreign aid to anyone?

    That's right , but lets start with Israel, stop rewarding them for robbery and war crimes, our money has done
    nothing to curb their appetite for hate, racism, narcissism and expansionism.

    What? You think the quickest and easiest way to end the crying need for bandages in Gaza is to stop supplying bullets to Israel?
