Nader blasts Obama on Israel

“Why is it important to have Ralph Nader on the ballot in November?” asked the Nader campaign as Barack Obama prepared to visit Israel. Because “without him, the plight of the Palestinian people will not be an issue in this year’s election.”

The Nader campaign asserts that “Obama/McCain stand with the militaristic right wing AIPAC lobby in the United States,” while “Nader/Gonzalez stand with the Israeli/Palestinian peace movements.”

The Nation writes:

At the very least, the Nader campaign’s focus on the details of where the Democratic and Republican candidates actually stand with regard to the Israel/Palestine peace process argues for inclusion of independent and third-party candidates—Nader, Green Cynthia McKinney and Libertarian Bob Barr—in the fall debates.
