The Jerusalem Post’s Lahav Harkov reports that one of her friends was on the receiving end of a nasty anti-Semitic attack from a Bernie Sanders volunteer after the friend calmly told the caller that she would never support the Vermont socialist for president.
“Oh, you’re ISRAEL people,” the Bernie bro allegedly said. “I HATE all of you so much. I hate ALL of you. GOODBYE.”
