UC Berkeley alum (no surprise there) Simone Zimmerman, Sanders’ newly hired Jewish outreach director, wrote an expletive-laden Facebook post last year that condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a mass-murderer.
Zimmerman is a young anti-Israel activist with a history of support for the BDS movement. She recently condemned Hillary Clinton’s speech to the AIPAC conference as “racist and orientalist.”
While an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, Zimmerman headed the campus chapter of J Street, an anti-Israel lobbying and activist group.
“Bibi Netanyahu is an arrogant, deceptive, cynical, manipulative a$$hole,” wrote the former J Street student activist, in the March 3rd 2015 post. “F#&k you, Bibi … you sanctioned the murder of over 2,000 people this summer.”
At a later date, Zimmerman edited the post, replacing “a$$hole” with “politician” and “F#&k you” with “shame on you.”
