Bernie Sanders was an early target of #BlackLivesMatter protesters, who hijacked his campaign rallies, issued a statement declaring him utterly and totally useless, and even managed to inspire the satirical #BernieSoBlack hashtag.

Sanders, who was raised Jewish, should at least have support among the Jewish community, right? He should, except that Sanders has devoted himself more and more to progressivism as his spiritual center. He was quite impressed with Pope Francis during his visit to the United States (and Cuba) and was reportedly invited to the Vatican to speak about social, economic, and environmental issues.

Enter Jewish outreach director Simone Zimmerman, who doesn’t impress Noah Pollak, executive director of the Emergency Committee for Israel.

How so?

Zimmerman not only supports the BDS (Bernie Derangement Syndrome) movement against Israel; he’s no fan of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee either.

Exit polls from New York next week should give a good idea if Sanders’ choice of Jewish outreach director can win him the Muslim vote.
