Not only has self-hating Jew Bernie Sanders hired a Muslim, Faiz Shakir, to be his campaign manager, a Somali Muslim, Abshir Omar, to be his Iowa political coordinator, and one of the most virulent Muslim antisemites and BDS promoters, Linda Sarsour, to be one of his campaign surrogates…now Sanders has tapped another Israel-hating Muslim, Amer Zahr, to serve as an official surrogate for his 2020 presidential bid.
So, is it any wonder the Sanders campaign has taken a nosedive in the polls?
Free Beacon In addition to his repeated attacks on the Jewish state, Zahr accused Trump of leading “a KKK rally” when he held a July event for supporters in North Carolina.
“Yesterday, a crowd of angry white people in North Carolina rallied around a speaker, chanting ‘Send her back’ about a Black American woman,” he wrote at the time. “Make no mistake. Last night, Donald Trump led a KKK rally.”
The selection of Zahr is likely to raise eyebrows in the American Jewish community in light of his open support for the BDS movement and a series of tweets accusing Israel of stealing its land from the Palestinians.
Zahr also has expressed support for Palestinian activist Zahra Billoo, who was recently asked to resign from the Women’s March board for a series of anti-Semitic tweets, including one condoning Hamas’s terror attacks on Israel.
“Zahra is a principled civil rights leader, and she is never shy or ashamed to highlight the suffering of the ‘Palestinians and the atrocities of the Israeli state,'” Zahr tweeted in September.
Zahr also appeared to support the spread of Islamic law in America, known as Sharia.
Sanders, who has himself backed far-left anti-Israel groups advocating BDS, has a history of hiring individuals who have accused Jews of having “dual allegiance” to Israel—an age-old anti-Semitic canard—and who have engaged in vulgar screeds against Israel’s prime minister.
Zahr has repeatedly accused Israel of stealing land from the Palestinian people. In a tweet sent earlier this month, Zahr wrote that “the right of return is sacred,” a reference to a push by Palestinians to be permitted to stake claim to territory in Israel.
Zahr is also the Muslim who wiped Israel off the map in Rashida Tlaib’s congressional office.

Zahr has said that he supports the BDS movement because it directly targets the legitimacy of the Jewish state.
“Does #BDS ‘single out’ #Israel in the face of other global atrocities? YES!” Zahr tweeted in July. “Because it was started by us Palestinians! I don’t know why everyone is so shocked that Palestinians are obsessed [sic] with our oppressor. #FreePalestine #Palestine.”
Jewish people living in Israel are referred to as “invaders” in Zahr’s Twitter feed.
In another tweet from June Zahr states that Palestine is more important to him than his friends.
