Bernie Sanders says US ‘virtually alone in the world’ in defending Israel

Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders says there has been a “bipartisan consensus” on US foreign policy for decades, and that consensus has almost always been wrong, whether on Vietnam or Iraq or many other issues.

This pattern is happening again right now with what is unfolding in the Gaza Strip as a result of Washington’s unwavering support for Israel amid its war on Gaza, the senator writes in US-based Foreign Affairs magazine.

  • “After spending billions of dollars to support the Israeli military, the United States, virtually alone in the world, is defending Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing extremist government, which is waging a campaign of total war and destruction against the Palestinian people, resulting in the deaths of tens of thousands – including thousands of children – and the starvation of hundreds of thousands more in the Gaza Strip.”
