A few veteran Democrats are supporting Israel in its latest challenge from Hamas terrorists. But the vast majority of the left wing party is supporting the murderers of Hamas.
FNC: “Escalating violence between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas has cast a spotlight on deepening Democratic divisions over the Jewish state. The party split played out in full view on social media this week after Hamas launched indiscriminate rocket attacks at Israel, which responded with airstrikes on Hamas targets in Gaza, reportedly killing some civilians. Israel is also dealing with domestic unrest from Arab rioters.” Israel has recently launched ground operations against Hamas.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Thursday there are “fundamental differences between a terrorist organization, Hamas, that is indiscriminately raining down rockets — in fact, targeting civilians — and Israel’s response defending itself, that is targeting the terrorists.” Biden said that Israel “has a right to defend itself.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday “Israel has the right to defend herself against this assault, which is designed to sow terror and undermine prospects for peace. Hamas’s accelerating violence only risks killing more civilians, including innocent Palestinians.” But the usual Democrat antisemitic left wingers blamed Israel for defending herself.
Senator and kapo Bernie Sanders blamed “right-wing extremists in Jerusalem…I am extremely concerned by the growing conflict in Israel and Palestine. Once again we are seeing how the irresponsible actions of government-allied right-wing extremists in Jerusalem can escalate quickly into devastating war,” Sanders wrote on Twitter Monday.
“Israeli children should not have to spend the night scared in bomb shelters, as many are doing tonight. Palestinian children should not have to grow up under the constant violence and oppression of occupation, as so many do, and have done,” he continued. What complete horse manure. As he sided with the Soviets during the Cold War, he now sides with Hamas.
I am extremely concerned by the growing conflict in Israel and Palestine. Once again we are seeing how the irresponsible actions of government-allied right-wing extremists in Jerusalem can escalate quickly into devastating war.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to Biden and Pelosi on Twitter: “Blanket statements like these [with] little context or acknowledgement of what precipitated this cycle of violence – namely, the expulsions of Palestinians and attacks on Al Aqsa – dehumanize Palestinians [and] imply the US will look the other way at human rights violations. It’s wrong. By only stepping in to name Hamas’ actions – which are condemnable – [and] refusing to acknowledge the rights of Palestinians, Biden reinforces the false idea that Palestinians instigated this cycle of violence.” The very fact that AOC supports Hamas must be embarrassing to the terrorist organization. But then, any airhead port in a storm.
