Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently did an interview where she showed her true colors on Israel, and that color is rabidly anti-Israel:
Here’s more from Fox News:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez agreed that Israel is “criminal” in its treatment of Palestinians, whom she said have no other choice but to “riot” against the Jewish state.
The New York Democrat made her remarks during an appearance on the hip-hop program “Ebro in the Morning” with Ebro Darden, where they touched on a variety of issues concerning the freshman congresswoman.
The host asserted that “corrupt” governments in Israel, the United States, Russia and Saudi Arabia were “all working in concert.”
“How do you have white supremacist Jews?” Ebro asked. “How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are legit aligning with racism and white supremacy, but they’re Jewish? And it’s something that most people can’t wrap their brains around. But it’s a real thing.”
He added: “And what’s going on with Israel and Palestine, while it’s very, very, deep, it is very, very, criminal, and it is very, very unjust.”
But rather than push back against the claims, Ocasio-Cortez agreed with them, saying “Absolutely” and adding that “I think, too, where we’re at as a country when it comes to Israel-Palestine is very much a generational issue.”
She said the right-wing unfairly accuses her of anti-Semitism when she’s actually just being critical of the Israeli government.
“Criticizing the occupation doesn’t make you anti-Israel, frankly. It doesn’t mean that you are against the existence of a nation,” she said. “It means that you believe in human rights, and it’s about making sure that Palestinian human rights are equal to Israeli human rights, and there are a lot of troubling things happening there.”
Ocasio-Cortez went on to say that Palestinians also have no other choice but to resort to violence as they are “marginalized.”
Supporting BDS is anti-Semitic. Accusing Israel of an ‘occupation’ in its own land is anti-Semitic. And encouraging Palestinians to riot because of the way they are ‘treated’ by Israel is anti-Israel.
I understand that things are difficult over there and it’s not always black and white, but there are two sides to this coin and one of those sides wants to destroy the Jews and kick them out of Jerusalem and Israel. One of those sides absolutely refuses to admit that Israel even has a right to exist. And one of those sides refuses to make peace even when Israel gives them land.
There’s only one side that seeks to live in peace with its neighbors and that would be Israel. And Ocasio-Cortez has chosen the wrong side.
