Bernie Sanders’ Jewish Outreach Director Suspended for Blunt and Honest Criticism of Netanyahu Government

In-depth Report:

The US presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders has suspended its new Jewish Outreach Director over the tone of her past criticism of Israel, for daring to speak the truth!

‘Simone Zimmerman, a former J Street student activist, was recently hired by the Sanders campaign. She wrote last year on Facebook,

“Bibi Netanyahu is arrogant, deceptive, cynical, manipulative, according to the Washington­ based Free Beacon.”

She continued:

“F— you, Bibi, for daring to insist that you legitimately represent even a fraction of the Jews in this world, for your consistent fear­mongering, for pushing Israel in word and deed, farther and farther away from the international community, and most importantly, for trying to derail a potentially historic diplomatic deal with Iran and thus trying to distract the world from the fact that you sanctioned the murder of over 2,000 people this summer.”

And that neatly encapsulates the truth. It is timely that a Jewish American has dared to stand up to AIPAC to boldly speak the truth ­ and to refuse to be intimidated by the all-too-powerful, Likud Zionist propaganda of the Israel lobby.

Now we need a Jewish Londoner to stand up and be as equally blunt and honest about the Netanyahu government; its hundreds of undeclared WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) and its illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories that continue to violate the Geneva Conventions and international law in its attempt to prevent the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.

The world must support the global BDS Campaign to apply economic pressure in order to achieve human rights for 5 million dispossessed, indigenous Arabs. Just as in South Africa against the apartheid regime, ordinary people worldwide must continue to persuade Western governments to apply sanctions to achieve democratic rights for the entire people of former Palestine.
