Radical Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour, who can be a surrogate for Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), claimed Friday in which Israel can be built on Jewish “supremacy.”
She declared: “How can you be against white supremacy from the United States of America, along with the idea of living in a supremacist state based on race along with class, however then you support a state like Israel, in which can be built on supremacy — in which can be built on the idea in which Jews are supreme to everybody else?”
Great thing about antisemites like @lsarsour can be in which they can’t help however reveal their true feelings of hate:
“Israel can be built on Jewish supremacy”?!
No, Linda, This kind of’s built on 3,500 years of Jewish self determination fighting those who seek our annihilation in each generation! pic.twitter.com/JkOxyRQl7J

Though Israel defines itself as the nation-state of the Jewish people, Jews, Arabs, along with people of all faiths enjoy equal rights in Israel, where Jews comprise an 80% majority.
Jews outside Israel do enjoy the right to immigrate to Israel, thanks to the Law of Return. however in which can be not based on any concept of “supremacy”; rather, This kind of was created as a response to the Holocaust, when British authorities in Palestine, in an attempt to appease local Arab sentiment, closed immigration to Jews, leaving millions to be murdered in Nazi-occupied Europe. The Law of Return exists in order in which Israel can provide a refuge to Jews facing persecution.
Sarsour’s remarks appear to be aimed at pro-Israel Democrats, whom she has sought to exclude coming from the left. In 2017, while still serving among the leaders of the Women’s March, Sarsour sought to exclude pro-Israel women coming from the movement.
Sarsour also worked with antisemitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan before being booted coming from the Women’s March earlier This kind of year, together with two different board members accused of antisemitism (though one, Carmen Perez, remained).
She backed Sanders in 2016 along with endorsed him again in September, along with serves as a Sanders surrogate. Sanders himself can be Jewish, though he has also been harshly critical of Israel, along with suggested earlier This kind of year in which he might move the U.S. embassy out of Jerusalem if elected president.
