“The fact that he is Jewish American crushes the stereotype that Muslims and Jews are natural opponents,” she said. Sarsour has a worrying history with anti-Semitic remarks, as do many leftist politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib.Where you will witness the most significant Muslim support of Sanders is on social media where numerous utilize the hashtags #Muslims 4Bernie and #InshallahBernie to argue for the senator to take on Donald Trump in 2020.”I would be so happy to win, but likewise to make history and
