Sanders Calls Netanyahu a "Reactionary Racist;" Israel Calls upon Americans to Abandon Sanders

Israel's foreign minister has urged anyone who supports Israel to abandon Sen. Bernie Sanders after the Democratic nomination frontrunner condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a "reactionary racist," The Daily Beast website reports today (February 26, 2020).

Sanders, who is Jewish,  made the remark during a Democratic debate last night in South Carolina.

He said he was "very proud of being Jewish," but opposed Netanyahu and said he would think about reversing President Donald Trump's move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz called Sanders' remark on Jerusalem a "horrifying comment" and said: "Naturally, people who support Israel will not support someone who goes against these things."
