(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Remarkably unpopular Vice President Kamala Harris was slammed by her own supporters for communing with pro-Israel Jews by drinking Passover wine from the West Bank, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
In a bizarre Passover Seder celebration hosted by Kamala and her husband Doug Emhoff at the Naval Observatory in Washington, the elites shared wine from Israel.
The VP shared a photo of her ethnic event on Twitter, drawing inspiration from the Hebrews journey from slavery to freedom.
This evening the @SecondGentleman and I hosted a Passover Seder at our home and recounted one of humankind’s most inspiring stories. By retelling the Israelites’ journey from oppression to freedom, we remind ourselves that we must always keep the faith and fight for others. pic.twitter.com/VRx9p9yspC

“This evening the second gentleman and I hosted a Passover seder at our home and recounted one of humankind’s most inspiring stories,” she wrote.
“By retelling the Israelites’ journey from oppression to freedom, we remind ourselves that we must always keep the faith and fight for others.”
Not all were pleased with Harris’ multi-cultural celebration. Anti-Semitic supporters on the Left saw the event as a sign that the Biden administration is becoming increasingly pro-Israel.
Michael Bueckert, vice president of Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East and a supporter of a sovereign Palestinian state in the Middle East, had harsh words for one of his Leftist allies.
Huge yikes: Kamala Harris @VP served wine from Psagot at her Passover Seder. It is produced in an illegal Israeli settlement which is colonizing the occupied West Bank. This demonstrates serious contempt for Palestinians and int’l law. https://t.co/UvUMG7bEeI

In an attempt to salvage the PR blunder, a top Harris adviser, Herbie Ziskend, tweeted a defense of the event.
“The wine served at the Seder [dinner] was in no way intended to be an expression of policy,” he wrote, defending the wine which was imported from a pro-Jew winery in the West Bank.
