My Bernie Sanders Comment

My comment:

To this:

When asked whether or not he supports the Palestinian Authority turning to the International Criminal Court in order to prosecute Israel, Sanders said no. When pressed to explain his answer, Sanders simply said, " Look, why don't I support a million things in the world? I'm just telling you that I happen to believe...anybody help me out here, because I don't remember the figures, but my recollection is over 10,000 innocent people were killed in Gaza. Does that sound right?”

The interviewer replied, telling the Senator from Vermont that the number he quoted was probably too high. Sanders then said, "I don't have it in my number...but I think it's over 10,000. My understanding is that a whole lot of apartment houses were leveled. Hospitals, I think, were bombed. So yeah, I do believe and I don't think I'm alone in believing that Israel's force was more indiscriminate than it should have been.”
