We're talking about the NY primary where 15-20 % of the electorate on Tuesday is Jewish and Sanders harassed Clinton for not showing enough sympathy for Palestine. Yeah, Sanders fans, keep telling yourselves that Sanders won this debate.
Yeah, how dare he show sympathy for innocent civilians being murdered.
That wasn't the issue. He was harassing her for not showing enough. He screeches BUT YOU WENT TO AIPAC AND DIDN'T TALK ABOUT PALESTINE. Hey Bernie, you didn't go to AIPAC at all.
I'm from the NYC metro area. His comments were fine but when he harassed her for not showing enough sympathy everyone in the room gasped. We knew, "uh oh, this isn't going to play well in the NYC suburbs." And his laugh during the guns exchange was brutal. His non apology to the Sandy Hook families was even more brutal. Double whammy.
He was totally right in that. When he brought up Palestine, she immediately shifted to terrorism and Hamas, completely ignoring the question about innocents in Gaza. Not mentioning Palestine in a lengthy AIPAC speech demonstrates Sanders' point that she would never be able to bring any sort of peace there (not that she cares much about peace anyway).
He did horrible with the gun-related questions as usual, that's nothing new.
