Bernie Sanders Blames Israel for Hamas Attacks: Gaza Is an Open Air Prison

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) issued an apparent one-sided statement regarding the recent attacks on Israel by Hamas terrorists, blaming it on the “horrendous living conditions faced by so many Palestinians.”

The recent Hamas attacks claimed the lives of hundreds of Israelis, many of whom were civilians.

In Sanders’ statement, he began by criticizing Hamas for its murderous rampage.

“The gunning down of young Israelis at a music festival is an image the world will not soon forget,” he wrote.

However, it wasn’t long before Bernie Sanders shifted gears, explaining that “people of goodwill throughout the world, including some brave Israelis, have struggled against the blockade of Gaza, the daily humiliations of occupation in the West Bank, and the horrendous living conditions faced by so many Palestinians,” an apparent effort to shift away from the atrocities committed by Hamas against Israel.

He noted:

“It is no secret that Gaza has been an open-air prison, with millions of people struggling to secure basic necessities.”

Sanders also acknowledged that “Hamas’ terrorism will make it much more difficult to address that tragic reality and will embolden extremists on both sides, continuing the cycle of violence.”

The socialist Senator then blamed Israel for laying siege to the Gaza Strip, which is governed by Hamas, after the initial attack.

“The targeting of civilians is a war crime, no matter who does it,” Sanders wrote, adding that “Israel’s blanket denial of food, water, and other necessities to Gaza is a serious violation of international law and will do nothing but harm innocent civilians.”

Sanders also noted that the United States “has rightly offered solidarity and support to Israel in responding to Hamas’ attack,” but argued that America “must also insist on restraint from Israeli forces attacking Gaza and work to secure UN humanitarian access.”

Sanders’ attack on Israel came after Defense Minister Yoav Gallant declared a “complete siege” on Gaza in reaction to the widespread carnage.

“We are fighting against human animals, and we act accordingly,” he said.

“There will be no electricity, no food, no water, no fuel.”

Israel responded to the siege with massive airstrikes and ground operations to eliminate the terrorists.

But Sanders’ statements aligned with leftists seeking to minimize Hamas’ actions.

While he did criticize Hamas, it was clear Sanders’ main point of criticism was against Israel.

The lawmaker also failed to mention the war crimes the organization committed, such as reportedly beheading babies.

Of course, others refused to address the horrific carnage at the hands of Hamas terrorists.

On Wednesday, Democrat Representative Rashida Tlaib refused to condemn the beheadings of Israeli babies when confronted by a reporter on Tuesday.

Tlaib, who has been called out for her anti-semitism, also blamed Israel for the Hamas attacks, which saw 1,200 Israelis murdered by Palestinian terrorists over the weekend.

Fourteen Americans were also murdered during the attacks.

Tlaib’s office released a statement following the attacks, saying:

“The path to the future must include lifting the blockade, ending the occupation, and dismantling the apartheid system that creates the suffocating, dehumanizing conditions that can lead to resistance.”

However, emocrat Representative Rashida Tlaib refused to condemn the beheadings of Israeli babies when confronted by a reporter on Tuesday.

In contrast, Former President Donald Trump slammed Biden for his weak stance on the conflict in Israel and Gaza.

“We are in very, very grave danger of having a WWIII,” Trump began in his speech.

Trump also warned the conflict could end in “a war of obliteration” before blasting Biden.

“[He] can’t walk off the stage, can’t put two sentences together, and yet he’s negotiating with President Xi of China,’ Trump said.
