Democratic pro-Israel group attacks Bernie Sanders

Democratic Majority for Israel is angry at Senator Bernie Sanders because two Muslim congresswomen of color supportive of Palestinian rights and freedom have endorsed him for president.

The group, which bills itself as the “voice of pro-Israel Democrats,” was formed earlier this year to prevent the rapid hemorrhaging of support for Israel among progressives in the party.

Mark Mellman, the organization’s leader, said last week, “It’s deeply disturbing to find a candidate who claims to be ‘100 percent pro-Israel,’ opposed to BDS and a fighter against anti-Semitism surrounding himself with a number of surrogates and endorsers who hate Israel, support BDS and have repeatedly made anti-Semitic statements.”

BDS stands for boycott, divestment and sanctions, the Palestinian-led movement to pressure Israel to respect human rights, modeled on the global campaign that helped end apartheid in South Africa.
