Linda Sarsour: Israel Was ‘Built on the Idea that Jews Are Supreme to Everybody Else’

‘How do you then not support the caging of children at the U.S.-Mexican border, but then you support the detainment and the detention of Palestinian children in Palestine’


SARSOUR: “How can you — and this is what I tell college students — you don't even have to make a statement. Just bring it into a question, ask those who call themselves Progressive Zionists to explain to you how they can be against the separation of children on the U.S.-Mexican border, how can they be against building a wall between us and Mexico, and how can they be against agencies like ICE, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but then to support and then tell me, 'Oh, you can't push me out of the movement because I'm also against white supremacy.' Ask them this: 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.”
