On his nationally syndicated radio talk show “The Mark Levin Show” on Tuesday, host Mark Levin attacked anti-Israel democrats, claiming that they are “obsessed with the destruction of Israel.”
“So why is it that Democrat candidates are not asked about any of this, any of these countries, any of these regimes, any of this genocide, but they are always asked about the tiny little state of Israel, our ally, a democracy?” asked Mark Levin. “Because there are six to seven million Jews there, that’s why. That’s why.
“The Democrat Party is obsessed with the destruction of Israel, just as the United Nations is,” continued Levin. “The one reflects the other.”
Mark Levin made his comments in response to the Democratic presidential primary debate last evening and after presidential candidate and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-V.T.) criticized Israel on the podcast “Pod Save America.” On the show, Senator Sanders said that he would “absolutely” consider cutting aid to Israel to force them to treat neighboring Middle Eastern nations differently.
Below is a transcript, in pertinent part, of Mark Levin’s remarks from his show on Tuesday:
“I could look all over the globe for you, ladies and gentlemen, at these genocidal countries – absolutely horrendous. I’m not even saying if they’re democratic or not, just horrific regimes. And yet, the left, like these genocidal regimes in the U.N. are obsessed with Israel.
“Why would they be obsessed with Israel? Why do they care about what takes place between Israel and the Palestinians? Do they ever talk about what takes place between the Russians and the Georgians or the Russians and the Ukrainians? Do they ever talk about what takes place in the interior of Russia? How about China, which has 2 million Muslims in concentration camps? Oh, don’t worry. They’re not death camps because AOC told us, ‘There’s a difference.’ Not a word! They are not asked questions about that. How about the gulags in Cuba, the gulags in Venezuela? How about the hellholes all over the world from which people are trying to escape to come to the United States? So why is it that Democrat candidates are not asked about any of this, any of these countries, any of these regimes, any of this genocide, but they are always asked about the tiny little state of Israel, our ally, a democracy?
“Because there are six to seven million Jews there, that’s why. That’s why.
“The Democrat Party is obsessed with the destruction of Israel, just as the United Nations is. The one reflects the other.
“They don’t make any proposals that would ensure the security of Israel. They pretend what goes on in the Gaza Strip either doesn’t go on or it’s Israel’s fault. They pretend that Hamas doesn’t exist. They pretend that the Palestinian Authority isn’t giving out pensions and subsidies to murder Jews through acts of terrorism. They pretend that Hezbollah hasn’t taken over Lebanon and isn’t the terrorist militia wing of the Iranian military. They pretend that Iran doesn’t exist. Israel, you see— Israel must give up its security, its historic homeland.”
