Joe Biden finally offered his support for Israel, days after the conflict with Hamas started.
With our Middle Eastern ally on the brink of war, Biden stated that Israel has every right to defend itself “when you have thousands of rockets flying into your country.”
That did not sit well with Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who, like her fellow Squad members, have more support for our enemies than our allies.
AOC Goes Off
AOC once again proved how little she knows about foreign policy.
After Biden’s statement, she unleashed on Twitter…
By only stepping in to name Hamas’ actions – which are condemnable – & refusing to acknowledge the rights of Palestinians, Biden reinforces the false idea that Palestinians instigated this cycle of violence.
This is not neutral language. It takes a side – the side of occupation.

Ilhan Omar also stuck up for Palestine…
This deputy mayor is describing ethnic cleansing here, yet everyone is the West is pretending that’s not what’s happening to Palestinians.
It’s reprehensible. https://t.co/XUTdeLvf9m

The most recent barrage of missiles at Israel started on Monday, but Israel has apparently taken the upper hand in the conflict, unleashing a vicious series of attacks, one of which resulted in a Hamas leader being killed.
Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has been truly clear about not backing down this time and has reportedly activated 9,000 troops to be sent to the border to defend if necessary.
