Bernie Sanders’ Jewish Outreach Director Known As Anti Israel
BARRY’S TAKE: Simone Zimmerman formerly of J Street (the anti Israel, Washington based lobby group), has been Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ director of outreach to the Jewish community.
In a astoundingly anti Israel post, here is what she said on Facebook on March 3, 2015:
“Bibi Netanyahu is an arrogant, deceptive, cynical, manipulative asshole. “Fuck you, Bibi … you sanctioned the murder of over 2,000 people this summer.”
We should be judged by the company we keep. You can judge Bernie accordingly.
Bernie’s New Jewish Outreach Director: ‘F–k you, Bibi’
By Noah Pollack, April 13, 2016, The Washington Free Beacon
The Sanders campaign’s newly hired Jewish outreach director wrote an expletive-laden Facebook post last year that condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a mass-murderer.
“Bibi Netanyahu is an arrogant, deceptive, cynical, manipulative asshole,” wrote Simone Zimmerman, a former J Street student activist, in the March 3rd 2015 post. “Fuck you, Bibi … you sanctioned the murder of over 2,000 people this summer.”
At a later date, Zimmerman edited the post, replacing “asshole” with “politician” and “Fuck you” with “shame on you.” The Free Beacon obtained screenshots of the original and edited posts.
