• When it comes to Dyab Abou Jahjah you are a victim of disinformation. He is not antisemitic. Read his answer to these accusations on his blog: http://www.aboujahjah.org

    Well, you know the old saying, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”

    Bernie’s not going to change.

    What’s hilarious is the growing crowds of young ditzy, giggly, white-bread liberal women who adore Bernie but probably never met a Jew — left, right, or center — in their cloistered lives…at least not before being shipped off to college in Ann Arbor or Berkeley or New Haven.

    Talk to them about Yiddish or the Forward or Katz’s Deli and you might as well be talking about taking a rocket ship to Mars or Neptune.

    Afraid you are dearly misinformed or you are retarded! I am British and Jeremy Corbyn is not a force for evil, quite the opposite in fact. Whilst our currently government has overseen the deaths of over 20 thousand people who were wrongfully found fit for work on their death beds, Jeremy is campaigning for changing in a refreshing and down to earth way. He is kind hearted and wants the best for a country being dragged back to a desolate Victorian esque era!

    This article has very little to do with UK domestic policy. It has everything to do with Corbyn’s undisputed links to Holocaust deniers and terrorists who want Israel destroyed.
    BTW, we don’t say “retarded” here. I guess maybe it’s different to you enlightened Europeans. Do you still call kids with cerebral palsy spastic too?

    It seems to me that your opinions of Mr. Sanders are based entirely on Mr. Corbyn’s views on the Gaza conflict. Given the sweeping scope of Mr Sanders platform, basing your opinion on one issue is simply myopic.

    I support Mr Sanders because his ideaas are what the United States needs in 2016. We need to wrest control from the billionaires, re-invigorate education, and revitalize manufacturing. Isrealites and Palestinians (and Britons) can worry about electing the leaders in their country; I’ll worry about mine.

  • I think this article is divisive, insulting, and self serving. No one has the right to look into the heart of another person, especially based on religious observance. Bernie Sanders is not running to be “Jewish President” he’s running for a public office. The Sandy Koufax comparison is particularly troubling. Koufax was a baseball player who’s job was to strike out batters, Sanders is advocating for millions of people in the name of justice. Which cause is more important to Judaism?

    Rabbi Salkin is an obvious political animal. The rabbi’s political views are sometimes referred to as extreme right-wing conservative Republican though he would say he is a ‘centrist’. He represents that portion of the Diaspora that adores Bibi Netanyahu, Likud, the Occupation, the Settler Movement. If you politically disagree with him especially in regards to his Israeli politically conservative postures, you are charged with being antisemitic. Bernie Sanders is at the opposite end of the political spectrum and even though he is a Jew, he’s not Rabbi Sakin’s ‘preferred brand’ of Jew. Mixing religion with politics inevitably causes serious problems. The debacle of Bibi’s recent attempt at manipulating and exacerbating American partisan politics where all sides seem lubricated with cash from AIPAC or Sheldon Adelson is an example of this nefarious ‘mixing’. The political manipulations of the Republican ultra-conservative Evangelical Christians have the same insidious effect.

    Firstly, he is NOT the only Jew running for president. Jill Stein is also running for president on the Green Party ticket, as she did before in 2012 when she said: “We’re seeing the candidates very similar to each other. They’re both vowing their obedience to the right-wing government in Israel. And they are both saying that they will stop at nothing, but that war will be the last result. So, once again, we’re seeing shades of gray here between the Democratic and Republican candidates, but we’re not seeing what the American people really need and what international security really needs. And in fact, I should add that this slave-like mentality towards Israel is absolutely unjustified. We need to start raising the bar for Israel and holding them to an equal standard for supporting human rights and international law and ending occupations and illegal settlements and apartheid.”
