55. Please stop making stuff up. he is definitely not to the right of Clinton on Israel

 

Below, I PROVE your claim is FALSE. Not that I expect you to stop making stuff up.

He was the first dem to announce he wouldn't attend Netanyahu's speech. He offered at least mild criticism of last summer's Gaza incursion by saying Israel overreacted. Hillary offered NO criticism at all and her defense of Israel was far more vigorous than his. he's more closely linked with J Street than AIPAC, he has never, as Hillary has, taken any money from AIPAC affiliated sources. He has never, as Hillary has, endorsed the capitol being moved to Jerusalem- a position she held for years. In short, you are flat out wrong. I find making false claims to be shameful. You seem to have no problem doing just that.

Mitch McConnell did it, Harry Reid didnít. Elizabeth Warren did it, Bernie Sanders didnít. Al Franken did it, Tom Coburn didnít.

Iím referring to the signing of the latest letter, crafted by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and proffered by Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), urging President Barak Obama to turn a cold shoulder to newly elected Iranian president Hassan Rouhani while pursuing a more confrontational and aggressive Iran policy. The Arms Control Associationís Greg Thielmann has already penned an important discussion of why this measure complicates efforts to reach a peaceful solution with Iran, which I highly recommend.
