Green Party Candidate Supports “Ethnic Cleansing” Libel

Since Bernie Sanders’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Green Party candidate Jill Stein has been getting a lot of attention from Bernie’s former supporters, including anti-Israel Cornel West. Her campaign illustrates just how completely off the deep end the far-left has gone when it comes to Israel.

Stein’s website states

The Stein campaign supports actions of nonviolent resistance to the policies of the occupation and of the Israeli apartheid regime, including those of the global boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign….

Today, in a move that shows that she truly is unable to distinguish fact from fantasy, she retweeted a tweet from infamousĀ antisemite Steven Salaita, in which he claimed that “Hillary Clinton vigorously supports Israeli ethnic cleansing.”

She’s also tried to Jew-wash her antisemitic positions in the past.

And blamed Israel for the attacks against it.

As I’ve written before, blaming Israel for the attacks against it ignores the fact that Israel’s military presence in the West Bank is itself a defensive measure and a result of Arab violence against Israel. If Dr. Stein is willing to make such sweeping pronouncements while being so ignorant about the history of the conflict, one wonders whether she has any idea what she is talking about on other issues.
