1. She is a problematic author

 

She does agitprop accusing critics of Israel of being anti-Semites, and she pushes the idea that Israel and Jews are identical. No critic of Israel is not anti-Semitic in her view.

3. I think most Jews hate Trump.

 

They arenít going to vote for him. Jews have consistently voted against their own financial and personal interests. They arenít going to suddenly become republicans. That is especially true of someone that the American Jewish community thinks is behaving like an authoritarian, the kind of government that Jews have historically suffered under. Her statement is alarmist and I would take it with a grain of salt.

Bari Weiss is an author who mostly writes about Jewish political topics. I have seen her op-Edís in the New York Times.

6. Billionaire Democratic donor: Bernie Sanders is a 'disaster zone'

 

'Billionaire Democratic donor Haim Saban praised the party's presidential candidates before slamming Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) as a "disaster zone" in an interview published Wednesday.

"We love all 23 candidates," Saban told The Hollywood Reporter.

"No, minus one. I profoundly dislike Bernie Sanders, and you can write it. I don't give a hoot. He's a communist under the cover of being a socialist. He thinks that every billionaire is a crook. He calls us 'the billionaire class.' And he attacks us indiscriminately. 'It's the billionaire class, the bad guys.' This is how communists think. So, 22 are great. One is a disaster zone."

Saban, a media mogul, and his wife, Cheryl Saban, donate millions to political candidates, according to The Hollywood Reporter.'
