Last week, after radical Leftist and anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour spoke during the DNC’s virtual caucus meeting for the Muslim Delegates and Allies Assembly, the Biden campaign condemned her, telling CNN that “Joe Biden has been a strong supporter of Israel and a vehement opponent of anti-Semitism his entire life, and he obviously condemns her views and opposes BDS, as does the Democratic platform … She has no role in the Biden campaign whatsoever.”

But according to Breitbart, the Middle East Eye reported Sunday that “Biden campaign officials privately apologized to Sarsour on a call with Muslim community activists, which was recorded and leaked to the publication.”

Breitbart continues:

“Biden coalitions director Ashley Allison said she was ‘sorry’:

Allison said she empathised with ‘the pain’ that the campaign had caused to Arabs and Muslims by disavowing Sarsour.

‘I am sorry that that happened. And I hope that whatever trust was broken, that this conversation is one small step to help build back the trust, but that is not the last time we have this conversation,’ Allison told the activists.

“Biden foreign policy advisor Tony Blinken, a former Obama administration official, also apologized:

Blinken acknowledged the ‘hurt and disappointment’ that the comments against Sarsour caused.

‘Historically, Republicans and Democrats have been quick to dismiss Muslim, Arab-American and especially Palestinian-American voices, and I want to reiterate on behalf of all of us our support for your communities,’ Blinken told the activists on Sunday.

He pledged that the Biden campaign and future administration will be “genuinely inclusive” and ensure Arab and Muslim representation at the decision-making level.

‘My apologies for what we did and what happened,’ Blinken told attendees, pledging to continue the conversation with community advocates.

“Biden spokesperson Symone Sanders piled on:

Sanders added that Bates’ remarks were a collective mistake by the campaign, not solely the spokesman’s fault.

She called the statement an ‘egregious misstep’ that damaged the work that Democratic Muslim advocates have been doing to mobilize the community to vote in November.

‘That’s not how we do business… We are not in the business of condemning people and large swathes of the community, absolutely not,’ she said.

‘And we are just not going to try and do better going forward, we are going to do better going forward. This will not be a situation that will happen again.’”

That a presidential candidate who is paraded as a moderate would associate with radical Leftist reprobate like Sarsour demonstrates that Biden is really one of them.
