[In 2015,] Warnock aimed his fire directly at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s opposition to a two-state solution in the Middle East, calling it “tantamount to saying occupation today, occupation tomorrow, occupation forever.” The phrase echoes the words of segregationist [and Democrat] George Wallace who called for “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, and segregation forever.”

“If you do not have a Palestinian state, you will have apartheid in Israel that denies other citizens, sisters, and brothers citizenship, or you will have a democracy that is not a Jewish state,” Warnock blasted at the Ebenezer Baptist Church.

During his 2015 Palm Sunday Sermon, Dem. Raphael Warnock explicitly called Israel an “Apartheid” State, describing it as “a land of violence and bloodshed and occupation” and he referred to Israeli leaders as “clever politicians,” and accusing them of being “racist and vicious.”

In 2018: Raphael Warnock’s anti-Israel sermon
(Reported on Nov. 13, 2020)

In a 2018 videotaped sermon, reported by Jewish Insider and circulating among conservative Jews, Warnock …blasted Israel after a White House ceremony lauding the relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — a move supported for decades by both Democratic and Republican leaders and implemented by President Trump.

“It’s been a tough week. The administration opened up the US Embassy in Jerusalem. Standing there [were] the president’s family and a few mealy-mouthed evangelical preachers who are responsible for the mess that we found ourselves in, both there and here — misquoting and misinterpreting the Scripture, talking about peace,” he said.

“Meanwhile, young Palestinian sisters and brothers, who are struggling for their very lives, struggling for water and struggling for their human dignity, stood up in a non-violent protest, saying, ‘If we’re going to die, we’re going to die struggling.’”
Warnock went on to compare the struggle of Palestinians with the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States.

One pro-Israel activist slammed Warnock’s remarks as disturbing and full of lies.

“It’s really vile. Don’t tell me he’s a friend of Israel,” said former Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind, founder of Americans Against Anti-semitism.

Hikind critiqued the Warnock sermon on his group’s website while also showing clips of the violent protests in Gaza opposing the embassy move.

He said he was baffled that the reverend would describe the US Embassy opening in Jerusalem as a “tough week.”

In 2019: Warnock signed a letter likening West Bank to apartheid South Africa (Archive)
(Reported on Nov. 3, 2020)

[In 2019, Warnock] signed his name to a statement likening Israeli control of the West Bank to “previous oppressive regimes” such as “apartheid South Africa” and suggesting that “ever-present physical walls that wall in Palestinians” are “reminiscent of the Berlin Wall.”

c. We came as representatives of African American communities; as descendants of those who survived slavery, Jim Crow and who work now to dismantle the new Jim Crow of mass incarceration and militarization of police in our communities; and we came as representatives of the South African people who lived through the indignity of over 300 years of dehumanizing dispossession, colonialism, segregation and apartheid.

j. We saw the patterns that seem to have been borrowed and perfected from other previous oppressive regimes:

i. The ever-present physical walls that wall in Palestinians in a political wall reminiscent of the Berlin Wall.

ii. Roads built through occupied Palestinian villages, on which Palestinians are not permitted to drive; and homes and families divided by walls and barriers.

iii. The heavy militarization of the West Bank, reminiscent of the military occupation of Namibia by apartheid South Africa.
