House Foreign Affairs Chairman Suggests He Will Not Support Sen. Sanders at AIPAC

At the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference, on the topic of Israel as an ally of the United States, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel told the crowd that conditioning aid to Israel is a deal-breaker for him:

Rep. Engel’s sentiment is a huge blow to Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT), who has been outspoken against Israel in his bids for the White House; Sen. Sanders also characterized AIPAC as "racist," although he has never attended the conference:

In October of 2019, Sen. Sanders even said that Israel would be forced to “fundamentally change” its relationship with the Gaza Strip, which is controlled by a known-terrorist group, Hamas, per the Wall Street Journal. Sen. Sanders’ stance is distinctly radical within the Democratic Party’s field of presidential contenders, but is shared by anti-semitic members of Congress, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Sen. Sanders' anti-Israel views have been condemned by members of both sides of the aisle:

If Rep. Engel will back up his sentiment, he will not support Sen. Sanders if he is the eventual nominee.
