Democratic Senators Send Letter Warning Against Annexation


A group of far-left Democratic senators have sent a letter to Israeli leaders advocating against annexation of parts of the West Bank, the Times of Israel reports.

The group includes communist self-hating Jew Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who pledged to skip an AIPAC conference because of the group’s alleged “unholy alliance” with right-wing racists.

The letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz said annexation would “betray our shared democratic values by denying Palestinians’ right to self-determination in a viable, sovereign, independent and contiguous state.”

“As friends and supporters of Israel, we caution you against taking unilateral steps that would fray our unique bonds, imperil Israel’s future and place out of reach the prospect of a lasting peace,” they added.

The letter also warned that the U.S.-Israel relationship would be harmed.
