Sanders on Wednesday nabbed his 1st Jewish organization presidential endorsement.
IfNotNow, a progressive Jewish group opposing the Israeli occupation of West Bank and Gaza, said in a statement that it was “called to get off the sidelines” to support Sanders, the 1st politician to receive an endorsement from the group.
IfNotNow co-founder Dani Moscovitch: “As a movement of young Jews fighting for freedom and dignity for all, we are proud to be the first Jewish organization to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders for President. Like us, Bernie rejects the false choice between being a proud Jew and supporting Palestinian freedom. He has embraced the common sense position that the Israeli military occupation of the Palestinian people should end — and that our tax dollars should stop funding it.”
Moscovitch also praised Sanders for fighting for Medicare for All and a Green New Deal.
