What About Netanyahu Trying to Interfere in the US Election?

Netanyahu adresses AIPAC live from Israel to trash Sanders

For the last four years, there’s been a national debate regarding the scope of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The issue might end up dominating discourse in 2020 as well. Last month, intelligence officials warned House members that Russia is allegedly meddling in an effort to get Trump reelected.

Concerns about Putin’s impact on U.S. elections has generated countless articles and wall-to-wall cable news coverage. It also fueled an impeachment investigation. However, blatant election interference from other countries is certainly not treated in the same way.

This contradiction was on display over the weekend, when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed AIPAC’s annual policy conference via video feed.

Netanyahu repeatedly referenced Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders, who skipped the conference and claimed that the lobbying group promotes bigotry. At the most recent Democratic debate, Sanders called Netanyahu a “reactionary racist.”

“We were all reminded a few days ago that there are forces who seek to break our alliance,” said Netanyahu, “Last year, those who came to AIPAC were accused of dual loyalty. This year, AIPAC was accused of providing a platform for bigotry. These libelous charges are outrageous.”

Netanyahu wasn’t the only Israeli official to attack Sanders at the conference. Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon said, “We don’t want Sanders at AIPAC. We don’t want him in Israel. Anyone who calls our prime minister a ‘racist’ is either a liar, an ignorant fool or both.”

Responding to Danon’s comments on Face the Nation, Sanders said he was calling for a more evenhanded foreign policy. “I am not anti-Israel…but what we need in this country is a foreign policy that not only protects Israel but deals with the suffering of the Palestinian people as well,” said Sanders.

This certainly isn’t the first time that Netanyahu has intervened in United States politics. In 2015, the Prime Minister infamously visited Washington so that he could argue against former president Barack Obama’s Iran Deal in congress. Obama was never consulted about the visit and the administration called it a “departure from protocol.”

    amerikans so stupefied, they believe that another nation would interfere in the politics of a nation w no democracy—a military dictatorship, police state, oligarchy where election laws r only found in dictatorships like Azerbijian….passive automatons cannot govern themselves…they require scapegoats to blame and an oligarchy to govern them

    “What About Netanyahu Trying to Interfere in the US Election?”

    Murder, thievery, oppression, war, corruption – all go untouched.

    Why would we expect anything different with the relatively trivial matter of meddling?

    The Judeo-Nazi ‘state’ is terrified of Bernie Sanders. The majority of the world’s Jews support the Talmudic-Zionist disease and the tumor called Israel.

    Most Jews view Bernie as a “self-hating-Jew” because he does not support that malignant cancer that is metastasizing through the West.

      Right. That’s the only redeemable characteristic Bernie Sanders has; yet, it doesn’t take away his Bolshevik characteristics and politics.

        what a bigot you are

    The Prime Minister of Israel is allowed to “interfere” with Israel’s undeclared colony, the USA. When Netanyahu addressed the US Congress he got over 30 standing ovations in a span of 28 minutes. He is the undeclared Emperor of the Israeli Empire. Trump has been a truly faithful subject of the Israeli Empire.

    1. tapatio says

      Almost correct. Benny Mileikowsky (alias: Netanyahu) is as much a sock-puppet as the orange troglodyte. THIS is the emperor………..

        Oh yes them. strange that you downloaded that picture. i just got through reading about the miseries of South Asian small businesses who took loans from the IMF which charge ;over 50% interest rates and due to that are collapsing. The articles just on the predatory brutal nature of the IMF which this family owns is completely disgusting.

    2. Eileen Kuch says

      Well, Michael, BB Nutty&Yahoo’s been interfering in our elections from the get-go. This isn’t anything new. It was Nutty&Yahoo who tried interfering in the 2016 election, not Vladimir Putin. He’s interfered in the Congressional elections as well.

      1. Michael says

        I have so many issues with that community and that community has so many issues with the world, yet I intend to vote for Bernie Sanders.

    3. nick1111 says

      Trump shall register as an Israeli agent

      1. Michael says

        Trump is already Net’s concubine so he can register like those Lolita express girls who were agents too

  6. nick1111 says

    So, this is a brazen interference in US elections by bloody criminal Netanyahu
