And no, it isn’t just because Sanders, a Jew, hired Faiz Shakir, the first-ever Muslim Presidential campaign manager.
It’s because he is bending over backwards to put Muslim needs first, ahead of his formerly loyal Christian and Jewish supporters. Like Sanders, Shakir and the ACLU have come out strongly against state and national anti-BDS laws on constitutional grounds.
As someone who is Jewish, it gives me a special pleasure to be able to work with the Muslim community. Together we're going to build a nation based on love and justice, not hatred and bigotry. #IftarsWithBernie pic.twitter.com/dwVNjRUEWt
