U.S. Senate candidate Chele Farley slammed Kirsten Gillibrand for rallying with anti-Israel activists Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory on Friday.
Sarsour even introduced “her friend” Gillibrand by saying, “I want to introduce to you another champion, another one of our people who works for us on the inside.”
Mallory and Sarsour have well-documented histories of criticizing Israel and share close ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, an unabashed anti-Semite.
“Kirsten Gillibrand is a disgrace, she has abandoned New Yorkers, turned her back on Israel and is clearly focused on running for president in 2020,” said Farley who worked in the private sector for 25 years and is now running on the Republican, Conservative and Reform Party ticket.
She said Thursday’s rally is just the latest anti-Israel action from Kirsten Gillibrand, who supported the treaty with Iran, opposed the Taylor Force Act, removed her name from anti-BDS legislation and has flip-flopped on supporting bipartisan legislation to punish terrorist groups who use innocent civilians as human shields when carrying out their attacks.
Adding insult to injury, Gillibrand will hold a town hall meeting on Long Island tonight at a time when Orthodox Jews can’t attend, Farley said. “It is clear she is out of touch with a key constituency in New York.”
“Gillibrand’s actions are part of a dangerous and emerging pattern where the far left of the Democratic Party, led by Kirsten Gillibrand, is becoming highly critical of Israel almost as a default position,” concluded Farley.
