Radical Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock can find it in his heart to seemingly forgive Fidel Castro, communist dictator of Cuba for decades, but cannot abide by Benjamin Netanyahu, duly elected Prime Minister of Israel. Tristan Justice explains in The Federalist:
Democratic Senate Candidate Raphael Warnock decried Israel as an “apartheid” state during a Palm Sunday sermon in 2015, railing against Israel’s “occupation.”
Warnock aimed his fire directly at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s opposition to a two-state solution in the Middle East, calling it “tantamount to saying occupation today, occupation tomorrow, occupation forever.” The phrase echoes the words of segregationist George Wallace who called for “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, and segregation forever.”
“If you do not have a Palestinian state, you will have apartheid in Israel that denies other citizens, sisters, and brothers citizenship, or you will have a democracy that is not a Jewish state,” Warnock blasted at the Ebenezer Baptist Church.
New video surfaced Wednesday featuring Warnock remembering Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro’s legacy as, “complex.”
“We pray for the people of Cuba in this moment. We remember Fidel Castro, whose legacy is complex. Don’t let anyone tell you a simple story; life usually isn’t very simple. His legacy is complex, kind of like America’s legacy is complex,” Warnock said in a 2016 sermon.
