Sen. Bernie Sanders declared his support for Israel, but averred that America could no longer be “one-sided” in the Israel-Palestine conflict. “We are going to have to treat the Palestinian people with respect and dignity,” he said.
“I believe the United States and the rest of the world have got to work together to help the Palestinian people,” he said. “That does not make me anti-Israel. That paves the way, I think, to an approach that works in the middle east.”
Later in the debate, he said that there would come a time, in the pursuit of justice and peace, that America would have to admit that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “is not right all of the time.”
