Kamala Harris Positions on Iran and on Israel Demonstrate an Utterly Disqualifying Stance Based on Woeful Ignorance/Arrogance/Dishonesty and Hence She is Impersonating a Progressive Position1

It should be headline news in a constitutional democracy that candidates for the presidential campaign be at least honest, educated, and informed,.
Kamala Harriss exhibited an utter lack of the supra noted attributes/requirements by brazenly and bizarrely stating that (A) Trump should be tougher on Iran, and (B) that Israel is a first-class democracy.
This is not just an oversight by someone out of the loop.
It is a shameful and repulsive disrespect for honesty, integrity, and accuracy.
This renders in fact, the candidacy DOA since these two are derived from neoliberal and neoconservative fabrications which have in the past and could in the future take our nation on another war of catastrophic consequences.
Both, neocons and neolibs in effect committed criminal wars against the humanity of Americans and Arabs and others by, in our name, and with our hard-earned tax funding yielded to the world’s most decadent misleaders who have been carrying out literally massacres without being held accountable.
A mere reading of an article in Common Dreams provides the documentation needed for this fact.
(A)”Despite damning reports on Israeli repression against Arabs in both the West Bank and Israeli proper — reports made by international human rights organizations like Amnesty International and Human rights Watch, as well as by Israeli human rights groups like B’Tselem and Breaking the Silence — Harris has lionized Israel as being a “beautiful home to democracy and justice.”
PS In case of problems with the supra provided Common Dreams link, as apparently the Common Dreams article was removed during the writing of this article, the following relevant article can also document Kamala Harris lack of honesty, and/or education, about Israel’s might – makes right invasion and occupation of Palestine history.
(B)”Harris voted in favor of and co-sponsored a 2017 bill that imposed new sanctions on Iran by bundling them with sanctions against Russia and North Korea. Warren voted in favor of this bill but did not cosponsor, and Sanders was the only congressperson in the House or Senate who caucuses with the Democrats to vote against.”
PS In case of problems with the supra provided Common Dreams link, as apparently the Common Dreams article was removed during the writing of this article, the following relevant article can also document Kamala Harris lack of honesty, and/or education, about Iran history which does not call for Trump sanctions, and which therefore shows Kamala Harris’s Senate vote 147 in support of the Trump sanctions.
Finally and very relevantly and revealingly Kamala Harris has clearly and very documentably shown to NOT have been a progressive prosecutor as detailed in the infra Democracy Now interview with Lara Bazelon, who is a Professor at the University School of Law and which buttresses an article in the New York Times.
“We the People” need to focus exclusively on promising honest, and educated and informed high integrity, competent PROGRESSIVE candidates who will at long last-ditch the undue toxic influence lobbies and therefore provide us the urgently needed reforms in public health care, public college education, infrastructure reform, and maintenance and most importantly ditch once for all the monstrous notion that interventionist trillion-dollar wars for the benefit of the greedy and odious industrial-military complex by our hegemons will solve any problems.
