Dem Congressional Candidate Sarah Idan Running For Adam Schiff’s Seat Plans To Be The ‘Anti-Squad’


Sarah Idan, former Miss Iraq and a current Democratic candidate for Congress, said Tuesday that she plans to be an “anti-squad” Democrat if elected during a visit to Israel.

Idan is running for Californian Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff’s seat following his campaign for the Senate, The Times of Israel reported.

Her comment about being “the anti-squad” was a dig at the progressive wing of the Democratic party that is anti-Israel like Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Ilhan Omar, the outlet noted.

Idan similarly lambasted those who disparaged Israel on college campuses over the Hamas-Israel war. “I want them to see the horror that caused the war on Gaza. The world is shouting ‘Free Palestine’ and it was never about freeing Palestine. This is not about freeing Palestine — killing innocent families and burning them alive. This is not freeing Palestine, this is terrorism,” Idan told Israeli media, The Times of Israel reported.
