Belén Sisa, a spokes person for Bernie Sanders made anti-semetic comments on Twitter and received back lash for asking and stating that the American Government and American Jewish community have dual loyalty to Israel.
BELÉN SISA: Sisa is Bernie Sanders’ spokeswoman, she is a DACA recipient, and works on Bernie’s campaign. She went on twitter to ask questions to the American Jewish community claiming they have dual loyalty to Israel and the American government does too.
BERNIE SANDERS: Sanders is an American Jewish man and has been a great supporter of Ilhan Omar, the freshman lawmaker who has sparked the Anti-Semitism controversy on the American Jewish community.
BELÉN SISA: In a tweet she wrote, “This is a serious question: do you not think that the American government and American Jewish community has a dual allegiance to the state of Israel? I’m asking not to rule out the history of this issue, but in the context in which this was said by Ilhan.”
She later deleted the post due to the backlash she was receiving but before she did she answered a question regarding if Bernie has loyalty to Israel and she responded with, “I think I would probably have to ask him? But his comments make me believe other wise as he has been very blunt on where he stands.”
She posted why she deleted her question saying “I deleted my previous question, because I don’t think it truly represents the question I was asking or what I was meaning to say, I think the injustice of questioning someone’s loyalty because of their culture or where they come from is something that is happening through comments being made about Mexican immigrants and a lot of the immigrant community now.”
Later, she posted again to fully apologize for her earlier posts, ”In a conversation on Facebook, I used some language that I see now was insensitive. Issues of allegiance and loyalty to one’s country come with painful history…At a time when so many communities in our country feel under attack by the president and his allies, I absolutely recognize that we need to address these issues with greater care and sensitivity to their historical resonance, and I’m committed to doing that in the future.”
Her twitter account is currently private to the public.
CONCLUSION: Belén Sisa came onto twitter to write anti-semitic questions and comments about the American Jewish community and the American government claiming they both have dual loyalty to Israel and then apologized thoroughly for her posts on Twitter.
