The Republican Jewish Coalition Victory Fund released a video Tuesday criticizing Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who hopes to be the country’s first Jewish president. The group, however, says voting for him would be ‘insane’ and detrimental to the Jewish state of Israel.
The video spells out several times Sanders condemned Israel.
In 2019, Sanders said, “Our policy cannot just be pro-Israel, pro-Israel, pro-Israel,” when referring to the U.S./Israel relationship. That same year, he labeled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ‘racist’ and called the introduction of an anti-BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) bill ‘absurd.’ When he attended the J Street convention, he said, “if you want military aid, you’re going to have to fundamentally change your relationship with the people of Gaza.”
The RJCVF didn’t stop there. The video concludes with Sanders’ key endorsements from anti-Semitic members of Congress including Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-MN, and Rashida Tlaib, D-MI.
