“In one instance, amid the rush, he was posing for a photo and was passed a sign to hold—he didn’t have time to read the sign, and from his cursory glance he thought it was talking about Mexico and didn’t realize it had anything to do with Israel.”
He didn’t have time to read the sign? How long would it have taken him to read a sign that was eleven words long? In order to stave off charges of antisemitism and support for the “Palestinian” jihad (which is widely shared among far-Left Democrats anyway), Booker would apparently have us believe that he is functionally illiterate. Should an illiterate really be serving in the United States Senate?
“Cory Booker Pictured With Anti-Israel Radicals, Holds Sign Calling for Elimination of Security Borders in Israel,” by Brent Scher, Washington Free Beacon, August 3, 2018 (thanks to the Geller Report):
New Jersey senator Cory Booker (D.) was pictured on Friday afternoon at the liberal Netroots Nation conference holding a sign calling for the removal of security borders in Israel, a policy proposal from a radical anti-Israel group with financial ties to terrorist groups.
Booker, standing next to radical activists from the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, is holding a sign that says, “From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go,” a slogan used by the group in its call for the removal of Israeli security barriers used to protect its citizens from terrorist attacks.
The picture of Booker was posted by the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, a radical activist group that supports anti-Israel campaigns such as the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) movement and was recently found to be financially tied to designated terrorist groups such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
“Excited to be here at Netroots Nation talking with progressives like Sen. Cory Booker about our shared commitment to freedom, justice, and equality for all people,” the group wrote.
Booker’s senate office did not initially respond to an inquiry on the picture and whether he believes security barriers that prevent terrorists based in the West Bank and Gaza Strip from entering Israel should be removed, but after publication sent a statement claiming the New Jersey senator didn’t know what was written on the sign he was holding.
“Just before delivering a speech in New Orleans, Senator Booker was approached by dozens of people for photos,” said spokesman Jeff Giertz. “In one instance, amid the rush, he was posing for a photo and was passed a sign to hold—he didn’t have time to read the sign, and from his cursory glance he thought it was talking about Mexico and didn’t realize it had anything to do with Israel.”
Giertz added that Booker does believe security barriers are necessary as long as “active terrorist organizations threaten the safety of the people living in Israel.”
“He hopes for a day when there will be no need for security barriers in the State of Israel, but while active terrorist organizations threaten the safety of the people living in Israel, security barriers are unfortunate but necessary to protect human lives,” Giertz said….
