She declared: "How can you be against white supremacy in the United States of America, and the idea of living in a supremacist state based on race and class, but then you support a state like Israel, that is built on supremacy - that is built on the idea that Jews are supreme to everybody else?" She also questioned how Zionists could oppose the separation of families at the U.S. -Mexico border while supporting Israel. -Mexican border? How can they be against building a wall between us and Mexico? "How can they be against agencies like ICE-Immigration Customs Enforcement?"

"At a time of a startling rise in white nationalism and anti-Semitism, I would be so proud to win, but also to make history and elect the first Jewish-American president this country has ever seen and for his name to be Bernard Sanders", said Sarsour, who also had campaigned for Sanders in his 2016 presidential run.

Sarsour's comments also appear to be directly challenging the views of her favored candidate, himself being progressive, Jewish, and a supporter of a Jewish nation-state.

November 29: Sarsour appears at the annual conference of American Muslims for Palestine, and says in a speech at the Chicago event that Zionists, not pro-Palestinian advocates, should be on the defensive.

Sarsour was formally in leadership at the Women's March before being dumped from the board over "anti-Semitism, infighting, and financial mismanagement". Her Twitter icon is a photo of her and Sanders together and smiling.

Video of Sarsour's speech was recently removed from her Facebook page, likely after some backlash, but not before it could be downloaded and posted elsewhere.

Sarsour was speaking at the the American Muslims for Palestine conference in Chicago, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Sarsour, who supports the anti-Israel BDS movement, has praised Nation of Islam leader and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.
