Sarsour shared a video in which she said, “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.”
Sarsour has been a lightning rod for controversy and accusations of anti-Semitism. She has worked with notorious Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan and spoken at a Nation of Islam event. She has declared that women who support Israel cannot be feminists. She supports the “boycott, divestment, and sanctions” (BDS) movement against Israel, and defended Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar for her own anti-Semitic remarks.
Sanders himself is anti-Israel, calling the Jewish state “racist” and claiming he would remove the U.S. embassy there from Jerusalem if elected President.
