Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is at it again. This time calling the leader of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu a “racist.” The Antisemitism of the left continues, this time with a Presidential candidate.
He also referred to the Israeli leader as an “obstacle” in the Middle East.
After calling Netanyahu a racist, Beto said “the U.S.-Israel relationship is one of the most important relationships we have on the planet.”
But targeting Netanyahu, O’Rourke argued that if the U.S.-Israeli relation is to be successful going forward, “it must be able to transcend a prime minister who is racist as he warns of Arabs coming to the polls who want to defy any prospect for peace, as he threatens to annex the West Bank and who has sided with a far-right racist party in order to maintain his hold on power.”
At the time, O’Rourke also jabbed at Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.
“On the Palestinian side, we have an ineffectual leader. Mahmoud Abbas has not been very effective in bringing his side to the table,” he lamented.
Lieberman, who ran unsuccessfully for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination before becoming an independent, claimed that while Netanyahu’s “opinionated” and “controversial,” he’s not intolerant.
“This is an ally in the midst of an election,” he said on Fox Business Network during an appearance on ‘Varney & Co.’ on Monday. “What I would say, and I know Prime Minister Netanyahu a long time, I agree with him a lot of the time, I sometimes disagree — he’s not a racist.”
