What’s Palestine? [All Walls must go says Cory Booker]
August 8, 2018
Is Cory Booker pro Palestine? Just not understand Israel’s need for a defense Wall? Or just fuzzy thinking? His denial does not hold up.
Senator Cory Booker was photographed holding a sign bearing a pro-Palestinian movement slogan. The image appeared on the Twitter feed of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, a self-described “coalition of 330+ groups” working “for a US policy toward Palestine/Israel based on freedom, justice, and equality.”
“From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go,” the sign read.
Booker, however, claims he wasn’t aware that the sign called for an end to the border wall between Israel and the Palestinian territory, but rather only a U.S. border wall with Mexico.
“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,”
