Chuck Schumer Slammed over ‘Disgusting’ Speech Demanding Netanyahu Replaced as Israeli Leader – EVOL

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has provoked outrage after he gave a speech demanding that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu be replaced as the Jewish state’s leader.

During a speech on the Senate floor Thursday, Schumer blasted Netanyahu over his handling of Israel’s war with Hamas.

While pushing plans for a two-state solution, Schumer declared that Netanyahu is an obstacle to the agenda.

The top Democrat said he believed that “Netanyahu has lost his way by allowing his political survival to take precedence over the best interests of Israel.”

Along with Netanyahu, Schumer listed other obstacles which included

“Hamas and the Palestinians who support and tolerate their evil ways; the radical right-wing Israelis in government and society; [and] Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.”

According to Schumer, new Israeli elections are “the only way to allow for a healthy and open decision-making process about the future of Israel.”

He added that he believes a majority of Israelis also recognize a need for change in their government.

Schumer’s comments were seen by some as a form of “election interference.”

Many took to social media to blast Schumer for calling on Israel to hold new elections to replace Netanyahu.
