Bernie Sanders was interviewed by the editorial board of the New York Daily News and raised eyebrows with his comments on Israel.
Sanders, who is Jewish, was commenting on the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza in 2014. He stated, “I think most international observers would say that the attacks against Gaza were indiscriminate and that a lot of innocent people were killed who should not have been killed.” Bernie went on claim that Israel killed 10,000 Palestinian civilians during this period. "I don't have it in my number ... but I think it's over 10,000," Sanders continued. "My understanding is that a whole lot of apartment houses were leveled. Hospitals, I think, were bombed. So yeah, I do believe and I don't think I'm alone in believing that Israel's force was more indiscriminate than it should have been."
