Another Reason Bernie Sanders Should Never be President
According to Ali Harb in the Middle East Eye:
When Palestinian-American comedian and activist Amer Zahr met Bernie Sanders earlier this year, he urged the senator from Vermont, in the name of the Arab-American community, to run for president again.
"I told him: 'Our community needs you because you're the only one that we trust in this field. We need you as much as you need us,'" Zahr told Middle East Eye.
Sanders officially announced his candidacy on Tuesday, joining a crowded contest of Democrats vying to win the party's nomination and take on President Donald Trump in November 2020.
It will be the 77-year-old senator's second presidential race after he lost the 2016 primaries to Hillary Clinton.
Arab-Americans overwhelmingly backed Sanders then - and community advocates are already showing unwavering enthusiasm for the lawmaker this time around, too.
Pay attention to Bernie's pal, Amer Zahr. He is the one who led a campaign to keep a Burgerim franchise (owned by a Lebanese - American businessman and which was slated to serve halal meat) out of Dearborn because the franchise originated in Israel.
Zahr is upfront about his hatred.
And Bernie either doesn't mind, or he agrees. The fact that another of his major allies is Linda Sarsour leads me to believe that yes, he agrees.
