The progressive Jewish group J Street asked supporters on Monday to urge their respective senators to sign the letter.
'The actions of the Trump administration have upended decades of bipartisan US support for a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict'
Another question that remains open for now is why J Street decided to give their first-ever endorsement for a presidential candidate?
Other major Jewish organizations from both sides of the political spectrum commended the two leaders for coming together, ending over a year of political stalemate in Israel.
"We strongly support Israel's right to defend itself and its people against acts of terror," the progressive Jewish group J Street said.
"DMFI, in reality, represents a minority of pro-Israel Democrats, who seem more concerned with targeting progressives over Israel policy than with confronting the destructive agenda of Donald Trump."
For the first time, J Street’s affiliated political action committee will raise money for a presidential candidate, arguing that any of the Democrats running is preferable to President Donald Trump.
Israel shouldn’t be radical Jews’ favorite “constant” target. It’s a rich, complex, sometimes flawed, ultimately wonderful democracy filled with amazing people pulling off everyday miracles daily.
Israel needs the aid for defense, the Democrat politician said.
If Sanders and J Street were “pro-Israel,” they would echo the Israeli Left, which remains patriotic and fights Palestinian terrorism while fighting for peace with the Palestinians.
