Bernie Sanders names J Street antisemitic co-founder as campaign liaison to Jewish community


Bernie Sanders has stacked his campaign with antisemites and anti-Israel bigots. As such, it is not a surprise that Bernie Sanders would name the co-founder of an anti-Semitic hate group as his campaign liaison to the Jewish community.

Will Joel Rubin explain to American Jews why Bernie Sanders brings virulent anti-Semites such as Linda Sarsour and Amer Zahr into his campaign. Will Joel Rubin explain why Bernie Sanders hired Faiz Shakir as his campaign manager, despite co-chairing an event that included a Hamas fundraiser? Will Joel Rubin explain why Bernie Sanders accepts the endorsements of anti-Semites such as Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. Will Joel Rubin explain why Bernie Sanders flew to London, to endorse the neo-Nazi Jeremy Corbyn? Probably not.

American Jews (with pride and dignity) better wake up to the fact that Bernie Sanders represents the greatest threat to the American Jewish community in our lifetime. Bernie Sanders being Jewish by birth does not change that fact. American Jews must fight Bernie Sanders the way British Jews fought Jeremy Corbyn.

Bernie Sanders names J Street co-founder as campaign liaison to Jewish community

Sanders campaign names co-founder of left-wing J Street lobby group and former Obama admin official Joel Rubin as liaison to Jewish community

By Arutz Sheva, January 6, 2019:

The Bernie Sanders campaign has named an insider in both the Jewish and Democratic establishments — entities that the presidential candidate has previously kept at a distance — as its liaison to the Jewish community.

The appointment of Joel Rubin, 48, a former Obama administration official with longstanding ties to an array of Jewish groups, was announced Thursday to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

Rubin was a co-founder of J Street, the left-wing Jewish Middle East policy group, and recently served on the board of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, a group that slots into the mainstream both of the center-left pro-Israel community and the Democratic Party.

“It’s really exciting because Bernie is building a movement here that is one that is essentially engaging the diversity of America,” Rubin told JTA in an interview. “What we’re going to do is make sure that the Jewish voice and community is part and parcel of that movement.”

Rubin also served as an aide to the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey and was a deputy assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs — the State Department’s liaison to the U.S. House of Representatives — under President Barack Obama.

It’s a signal of how markedly different this Sanders campaign for the Democratic nomination is from the one he ran in 2016 as an outsider, when it took months to address his Jewish background and upbringing. Now Sanders brings it up frequently.
