Once it had become clear Sen. Bernie Sanders had lost out for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, many in the pro-Israel establishment breathed a huge sigh of relief. But they shouldn't.
The PAC’s ad targets Jamaal Bowman, whom Sanders has endorsed, for not paying taxes.
Engel is a moderate Democrat and a leading pro-Israel voice in Congress who voted against the Iran nuclear deal in 2015.
'I’m confident that Biden will be able to advance the progressive American Jewish priorities I fought for on behalf of Sen. Sanders.'
"If people can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
Biden accepted Sanders’ demand for a $15 minimum wage, forgiving student debt and free community colleges, but have yet to agree on the topic of free universal healthcare
Biden responded by terming Sanders "the most powerful voice for a fair and more just America.”
The message Sanders has to deliver to his followers is simple: a vote for anyone other than Biden, or not voting at all, is a vote for Trump.
