If there is one issue that will take Bernie out of the race it is his stance on Israel.  A nation that is 75% citizen backers of the Israeli state and sees no alternative outcome for Israel except strong defense.  However, according to Alan Dershowitz's article, Israel offered Palestine a two party state solution 3 times from 2001-2009.  With each time it was denied.  Reasonable people can disagree with Israel’s occupation and settlement policies—although even critics must acknowledge that Israel offered to end the West Bank occupation and settlements in 2000, 2001, and 2008 as part of a plan to create a two-state solution. The Palestinian leadership rejected the 2000 and 2001 offers and failed to respond to the 2008 proposal. Israel did unilaterally end its Gaza occupation and settlements, only to see that area turned into a launching pad for Hamas rockets and tunnels designed to kill Israeli civilians.

These are the issues we will be discussing plus the New York Primary results.  A candidate must capture 51% of the vote to get all the delegates.
