Unlike the other four presidential candidates, Democrat Bernie Sanders declined the invitation to speak at the AIPAC conference in Washington on Monday, and instead delivered a foreign policy address in Utah.

"Broken Window Policies" are Discriminatory and Should be Opposed in U.S., Israel

M. Dove Kent, Donna Nevel, Rebecca Vilkomerson
Tikkun Daily
As Jewish New Yorkers, we firmly believe that no community can ever be safe through the oppression of another.

The military occupation of Palestinian communities, political and economic exclusion ...and discriminatory and violent policing by the military and police do not increase the safety of the Jewish people.

Netanyahu's demographic fear-mongering is rooted in the foundation of the Zionist project in Palestine and demographic engineering to ensure political power remains in the hands of one ethno-religious group.
