As the Islamic Republic-backed terrorist group Hamas continues its terrorist warfare against the Jewish state of Israel, radical-left wing groups in the United States have carried out rallies and protests in support of Hamas’s attack.
In places like Times Square, the Democratic Socialists of America hosted an “All Out for Palestine” rally, with many supporters wearing masks so they are not identifiable. Video of the protests showed Pro-Palestinian protesters shouting, “Resistance is justified when people are occupied” and “Long live the intifada.”
The group has had a history of supporting radical socialist democrats in Congress, including Representatives Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush, Rashida Talib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Jamall Bowman.
In Washington, D.C., just outside the White House, pro-Palestinian protesters cheered as a speaker shared a story of Hamas capturing and slaughtering Israeli soldiers.
For her part, Representative Ocasio-Cortez called for an “immediate ceasefire and de-escalation is urgently needed to save lives.” Representative Omar also called for “de-escalation and ceasefire,” adding that she would “keep advocating for peace and justice throughout the Middle East.”
In the academic arena, various left-wing student groups at prestigious universities like Harvard have voiced support for the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas, blaming the Jewish state for starting the violence.
Representative Tlaib’s office released a statement on the ongoing events, stating that the Congresswoman grieved for the “Palestinian and Israeli lives lost yesterday, today, and every day.”
“As long as our country provides billions in unconditional funding to support the apartheid government, this heartbreaking cycle of violence will continue,” she added.
“We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence,” read a joint statement by Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups on the Situation in Palestine. The letter blamed Israel for the plight of the Palestinians, characterizing the Democratic Jewish state as an “apartheid regime. The second page of the letter was a list of student groups that supported the joint statement.
In Europe and Canada, Palestinian migrants and pro-Hamas supporters have also hosted rallies praising the terrorist group’s attack against Israel and calling for Israel’s destruction.
