Elizabeth Warren: As President I’ll End Israel’s Occupation Of Gaza
1 Comment

2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren told activists Monday that she would push to end the Israeli government's "occupation" of the West Bank and Gaza.

The left-wing Jewish group IfNotNow posted a video on Twitter of two of its members approaching Warren for a photo at a campaign event in Peterborough, New Hampshire.

One of the activists, identified in the closed captions as "Becca," said, "Hi we're American Jews. We really love the way you're fighting corruption. We'd really love it if you also pushed the Israeli government to end occupation."

"Yes. Yes. I'm so there," Warren responded, and then ushered them into position for a photo.

"In the past, Warren has regularly spoken of Israel as a strong ally in a tough neighborhood and has appeared at AIPAC events and used right-wing talking points," IfNotNow said in a statement about Warren's campaign promise. "But as her career has gone on, her views on the issue have grown to be farther in line with her progressive values: She was one of the 60 Democrats to boycott [Prime Minister] Netanyahu’s speech in Congress, she supported the Iran Deal, spoke out against the Embassy move, and opposes efforts to criminalize the BDS movement.”

The organization, which is dedicated to "end[ing] American Jewish support for the occupation," posted a photo last month of activists and fellow 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders. The caption said that IfNotNow activists "just asked @BernieSanders if he’s also an anti-Occupation Jew and looks like the answer is YES!"

IfNotNow recently became a tax-exempt organization which allows them to engage in political activities. Their goal is to put pressure on the Democratic presidential candidates to pressure the Israeli government.

Hal Turner Commentary

Clearly Elizabeth Warren does NOT want to be President of the United States.  Her position on this matter has just alienated the overwhelming majority of Jewish Americans, and rightly so.   

The reason Gaza is occupied is that ferocious, violent, and deadly attacks upon completely innocent people in Israel have emanated from Gaza for decades!   Why would any rational person NOT want to keep that death and destruction under control?

The "government" in Gaza SUPPORTS the violent attacks . . . not because of "the occupation" but rather because they refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist!

Elizabeth Warren may as well hang up her campaign shoes - she blew any chance she has with this position.

    Well, if you believe the mainstream media, Elizabeth Warren doesn't stand a chance to be President anyways. After all, according to what I'm assuming are exceptionally accurate polls(*wink wink*), Joe Biden is beating all the other Democrats and is something like a billion points ahead of Trump.

      You mean the already selected Joe Biden? Hawaii Rep.Tulsi Gabbard was well liked among Democrat voters during the first debate, but she wasn't the Parties selection, so she was declared a Russian operative, and the media painted a wart on her chin, which was very freaky.
      Concerning Gaza? Israel left Gaza's in 2004 under Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. If ever the Palestinians proved the stuff they were made of, this was it. Israel left fully operative industries intact so that the Palestinians could start earning good dividends right away: massive floral greenhouses, for instance. Israel had shipped flowers to Europe and the trade was very lucrative. But the Palestinians fell over themselves in a rush to destroy the Greenhouse operation. Everything the Israeli's had touched was burned to the green. Everything. These pathological zealots hate the Jews so much that they willingly sacrifice their welfare, and the welfare of their children...just to bring their sense of reality into conformity with their Mohammit, and the Koran.
