Wow. The virulent Israel-hater Bernie Sanders does not hate Israel enough for his pro-jihad surrogate Linda Sarsour. #Jexodus.
Linda Sarsour backs Bernie Sanders, but not his support for Israel
By JNS, December 5th, 2019:
Last month, Bernie Sanders wrote about his support for Israel, calling the nation an “enormous achievement” and “a democratic homeland for the Jewish people.”
A few weeks later Linda Sarsour, a prominent Arab-American activist and an official Sanders campaign surrogate, said that support for Israel as a state is unacceptable in the progressive movement.
The contrast is sharp and, one would think, irreconcilable.
Neither Sarsour nor the Sanders campaign has answered the Jewish Telegraphic Agency’s request for comment.
Let’s review some recent statements on Israel by Sanders and Sarsour.
Sept. 6: The Sanders campaign posts a video of Sarsour speaking at a rally in Brooklyn and identifies her as a “2020 Bernie surrogate.”
“At a time of a startling rise in white nationalism and anti-Semitism, I would be so proud to win, but also to make history and elect the first Jewish-American president this country has ever seen and for his name to be Bernard Sanders,” said Sarsour, who also had campaigned for Sanders in his 2016 presidential run.
In order to combat #antisemitism, we must hold our leaders accountable. After another #antisemitic outburst by @lsarsour over the weekend, @BernieSanders should do the right thing and fire her from his campaign! pic.twitter.com/OdNQ8MEVsc
