“Hillary Clinton has always stood against efforts to marginalize Israel and incitement, and she strongly condemns this kind of hatred,” Sarah Bard, the campaign’s director of Jewish outreach, said in an email Wednesday. “Burning the Israeli flag is a reckless act that undermines peace and our values.”
An Israeli flag was set alight Tuesday as protesters chanted “Long live the intifada” outside the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia, housing the Democratic National Convention.
