Sanders Defends Omar from ‘Anti-Semitic’ Smears

by | Mar 7, 2019

Jewish Democratic Party Presidential Frontrunner Bernie Sanders:

“Anti-Semitism is a hateful and dangerous ideology which must be vigorously opposed in the United States and around the world. We must not, however, equate anti-Semitism with legitimate criticism of the right-wing, Netanyahu government in Israel. Rather, we must develop an even-handed Middle East policy which brings Israelis and Palestinians together for a lasting peace,” the Hill reported.

“What I fear is going on in the House now is an effort to target Congresswoman Omar as a way of stifling that debate. That’s wrong.”

Your move, Israel Lobby.
