Linda Sarsour, a pro BDS political activist spoke at a presidential rally for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

She expressed her wish to see Bernie Sanders elected President of the United States, which would make him the first Jewish president. “I would be so proud to win, but also to make history and elect the first Jewish American president this country has ever seen and for his name to be Bernard Sanders.

Sarsour also said that she believes that Sanders will pave the way for “a transformative foreign policy—one that is centered on peace and diplomacy. A foreign policy that sees Palestinians as human beings deserving of human rights and self-determination”.

”A foreign policy that sees Palestinians as human beings deserving of human rights and self-determination. Bernie doesn’t ask us how much these things will cost, because only people who don’t believe we deserve these things will ask us how to pay for things like health care, but never ask us how to pay for endless and unjust wars,” she said.
