However, Sanders also acknowledged the complex dynamics at play, noting the deep-rooted animosity between Hamas, which seeks the destruction of Israel, and the Netanyahu government, which is committed to countering Hamas’s threats.

He stressed that for genuine peace to be achieved in the region, both Hamas’s control over Gaza and the Netanyahu government’s policies must be addressed.

Switching gears, Sanders also discussed the upcoming presidential election and the imperative for independent voters to support President Joe Biden for a second term.
