Sen. Bernie Sanders and a number of constituents got into a fight over Hamas and Israel at a town hall meeting in Cabot, Vermont on Saturday.
A heated exchange featured Sanders telling those interrupting him in the audience to “shut up” and a woman yelling “fuck Israel,” while calling Hamas “a service organization.”
The heated confrontation followed a constituent expressing concern over Palestinian civilian deaths in Gaza.
Sanders said Israel did overreact in Gaza, but condemned Hamas for sending missiles into Israel, building tunnels, and not recognizing Israel’s right to exist.
