Video: Anthony Weiner Remains Hawkish Likudnik

A pattern emerges.

Anthony Weiner reiterated, on Wednesday, his Hawkish position of the settlements in Judea and Samaria that “The status of that area is left to be decided by the people who’re there.”

The exchange took place at a pro-gay marriage celebration in Greenwich Village and was captured on video which was later posted on The Daily Beast’s Open Zion Blog. The questioner asks Mr. Weiner, “Do you still believe the West Bank is not occupied?”

Weiner quickly responded: “Yes, I do. The status of that area is left to be decided by the people who’re there.”

“So it’s not occupied by Israel?” the questioner, “aligharib,” persisted.

“I gotta tell you: there are disagreements about what constitutes the West Bank,” Weiner said, before walking away to gladhand Stonewall revelers.

When the questioner asked ” “So it’s not occupied by Israel?” Weiner curtly responded “I gotta tell you: there are disagreements about what constitutes the West Bank,” before ending the 21-second interview.

The last time Weiner disputed the occupation label, Adam Dickter notes, he ran afoul of Americans for Peace Now, whose Debra DeLee fired off a missive reminding him that “Even Israel’s Supreme Court has termed Israel’s control of the West Bank an occupation. And thousands of Israeli troops man checkpoints and guard settlements dispersed across the territory.”

A pattern emerges.

  1. The Muslims have been occupying Israel ever since they conquered it in 635AD. The time has come for them to give up their occupation of Jewish lands!

  2. It's a shame that these people heads aren't occupied with a brain.

  3. Ch Hoffman says:

    pandering to any given crowd is a given in political circles.
