Self styled Democratic-Socialist Bernie Sanders might be in the running as the first Jewish nominee from a major political party, but his viewpoints about Israel makes him line up next to some known anti-semites. So can a Jew be an anti-semite?
Bernie Sanders may say he supports Israel, but one must question the fact that if he was truly as pro-Israel and a proud Jew as he insists why is he promoting known anti-Semites like Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Linda Sarsour?
Ilhan Omar has been caught numerous times esousing anti-semitic viewpoints. “Israel has hypnotized the world. May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” Omar tweeted.
Rashida Tlaib exlained, “That there is a calming feeling when I think of the Holocaust, because my people the Palestinians provided a place for Jews to come to.” Of course Tlaib forgot to mention that the Palestinian leadership worked with the Nazis to exterminate the Jews.
Sarsour has been noted as saying that, “One must support Palestine, because one must support the oppressed.”
If Bernie is who says he is, how could he support these women? Unless of course he agrees with them.
