    Bernie Sanders's Kibbutz Found. Suprise: It's Socialist.

    From that bastion of Great Journalism....The New York Times....

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/06/us...butz.html?_r=0

    "JERUSALEM — Senator Bernie Sanders volunteered on an Israeli kibbutz in the 1960s, but he has always been vague about the specific location. "

    "The kibbutz was founded in Romania in 1929 and established in pre-state Israel in 1935. It saw the Soviet Union as a model, and often flew the red flag at outdoor events."

    "The movement, whose Hebrew name translates to “The Young Guard,” was a socialist, Zionist secular Jewish youth group founded in 1913 in Galicia, Austria-Hungary, and shared the name of a workers’ party in pre-1948 Palestine."
