    Even if Israel were to give away Jerusalem and withdraw from every last inch of the West Bank, we would still not get peace in return and the peace talks would still blow up, because the Palestinians insist on the right of return which means the destruction of Israel within a generation. It is also clear that we are facing a racist entity, where it is a capital offense to sell land to a Jew, where Jews may not be citizens, which refuses to recognize that Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people and whose official version is that the Jews asked Hitler to murder their relatives in Europe. And yet this racist entity, which is doing all that it can to win a state without giving peace in return, is winning hands down against our appalling attempts to present our case. So yes we need to invest in explaining ourselves, and yes we have to get out of the areas that will obviously never be part of Israel so that we stop ruling over another people and being responsible for their needs. And everything else is open for negotiation afterwards, We recognize that no Palestinian leader can give up on East Jerusalem and the right ofrerturn of refugees, half of whom were never Palestinian in the first place - whcih si why we have to keep Jerusalem until they negotiate away their demand to destroy Israel

Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.
