Palestine in the 2020 elections: a look at Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren

Overall, Bernie Sanders has taken the boldest stand for Palestinian human rights, but has pulled back to “safe” positions more than once; Elizabeth Warren has a history of support for Israel despite its long, systemic record of human rights abuses, but seems willing to respond to pressure from voters. Neither has advocated for full Palestinian rights and justice. See a detailed report on Sanders’ and Warrens’ position on Palestine…

Dem candidates mostly turn a blind eye to Israeli atrocities and Palestinian rights

On the critical issue of Israel/Palestine, Democratic presidential hopefuls reveal a strong pro-Israel leaning that does not match the sentiments of a huge swath of Democratic voters. If voters who support justice and human rights don’t speak up, we’re likely to get another leader who bows to Israel.

Action Alert: Tell the candidates, “a good President knows that Palestine matters.”

Our presidential candidates are neglecting the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity. Instead, they favor Israel, a state with Palestinian blood on its hands. We must pressure the candidates to engage with this subject, and to come out on the side of justice.
