Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren speaks during the Iowa Democratic Party's Hall of Fame Celebration, Sunday, June 9, 2019, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

On Monday, following a town hall meeting in Peterborough, New Hampshire, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told activists of the left-wing Jewish group IfNotNow that she would push the Israeli government to end the “occupation” in the West Bank.

Activist: We are American Jews. We really love the way you’re fighting corruption. We’d really love it if you’d also push the Israeli government to end the occupation.

Warren: “Yes, yes. So I’m there.”
