Bernie had to make it quite clear that he was an American and not a dual Israeli Citizen. I guess with so many Israeli dual citizens in US Government the mistake can be forgiven.

“Senator, you have dual citizenship with Israel,” Rehm said at the beginning of the exchange.

“No, I do not have dual citizenship with Israel," Sanders responded. "I’m an American -- I don’t know where that question came from.” He also added, “I’m an American citizen. I have visited Israel on a couple of occasions. No, I'm an American citizen, period.”

You can hear the interview where he talks and supports a Palestinian State and Israeli State and gives he feelings about Netanyahu. here

Anyone running for the people of the US only will become a easy target . It will be a hard nut to crack for Americans to get their country back from special interest groups with the money and the people to oppose you .Best of luck to Bernie is all I can say .

A two state solution isn't realistic and never has been in my opinion. This just shows me that Bernie isn't realistic when it comes to international relations. I think Bernie is a nice guy with good intentions, but doesn't have a grasp of the realities he will face as President.

He should have done what Rand did the last time someone asked him a loaded question, which is call them out on spot and tell them live that it isn't the way to do an interview and then rephrase the question how he likes and then answer your own question, OWN those fools.....this showed up as a reply, didn't mean to do that but I agree with you Metallicus.

I have to disagree. I think anyone that thinks that a two state solution will work has a REAL grasp on international politics.

Still think he's the best candidate for president out of everyone that has declared, Although I'm not discounting Rand Paul...

I appreciate your response. Few people have the ability to politely disagree anymore.

We do seem to be suffering from a dearth of desirable candidates, but I can't blame them. Who wants a job where nearly 50% of the population will despise you? Certainly not me.

I'm more concerned about this Country I live in, Bernie has a lot to say and has a high regard for the average American, Social Security, Taxes, Infrastructure, Income Inequality, Police Violence, Black Lives Matter. I don't know where you live, but if you give a damn about the USA you'll listen to what Bernie has to say.

And regarding the 2 State Compromise, perhaps we can oust the Occupiers and give the Palestinians back their Country...problem solved. But I'm ok with the compromise.

Well, if they would represent the people for a change instead of their corporate masters maybe people might change their opinions about them. I'd say most people are completely justified in hating them since they basically sell them out in every way possible, lie to them constantly, refuse to represent them and steal every last penny they have. If any of us were that inept at doing our job we'd be fired immediately.

If Bernie could be a positive force without all the socialism I would be more likely to consider him. Right now he is too far left for my taste, but I still would vote for him over Jeb and Hilary.

I would like to see the Palestinians completely relocated. Removing Israel at this point isn't realistic.

ETA: That land has belonged to so many different peoples throughout history. I don't see the Palestinian claim as anymore valid than that of the Israelis. For the sake of peace I would like to see the Palestinian people adequately compensated and relocated, but that is just my opinion. The situation there is so complicated it is hard to say what would work.

I don't think a two state solution is a security issue. Because look at Syria and the other countries hostile to Israel that are surrounding it. In fact it's better security because as average Palestinians would thrive in a better economy, then Hamas would have a much harder time recruiting. Just like was said years ago in American Politics "It's the Economy, stupid" Better economy and quality of life means less crime and war. Generally.

But I agree with the horrible dearth of candidates. The problem is the media though...Rand Paul and Sanders aren't getting very much air time and we know that third party/Independent candidates rarely get any air time.

Bernie is an Isreal apologist, IMO, his biggest fault. But it is a fault that I've learned to live with - with local congressmen for a lot of years. They are so - 'on-it' in all other respects but blind with regards to the Palestinian Genocide.

Brad Sherman, of who I speak, another outspoken opponent of TPP and other economic nonsense (as far as real people are concerned anyhow) is the same way.

You can't have perfect and it you think you can, you are seriously deluded or not very bright (your choice).

The nice thing is, I've no trouble disagreeing with him nor do others - and he doesn't call them names - WOW what a concept.

Instead of moving the people that have lived there for centuries it would be better to move the ones that have moved there in the last seventy years. Besides the Jews that were living there wasn't calling for an Israel to be created that idea came from a bunch of foreigners.



I don't see the Palestinian claim as anymore valid than that of the Israelis.

Their claim was far more valid than the bunch of people with no ties to the land.

Back on topic
Bernie better get ready for the self hating Jew claims now because everyone knows that if you are Jewish and don't love Israel then he is a self hater.

Bernie better watch out...
Just by saying he is not a dual citizen might label him an anti-Semite...

it wasnt a 'global problem' until ww2 ended

some group (probably a secret one) decided that setup would do exactly what has happened to date, could have been for hate reasons, financial profits, military exercises, nwo, we weren't around at that time, hard to be 'sure' about why it ended that way

Yes, I mean Palestinians have only rejected a two state solution since ... well, day 1. You know, back when it was offered and they invaded Israel. Then back when they elected Hamas who wants to drive Israel into the ocean.
