Most members of the Democrat “Squad” were either silent about HAMAS’ brutal attacks on Jewish civilians, or called for a ceasefire that would help the HAMAS attackers hide their civilian hostages throughout their base in the Gaza Strip, according to Breitbart News.
The leader of the eight-person company of radicals and antisemites, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), posted a statement urging an “immediate ceasefire and de-escalation,” while also condemning the HAMAS attack that has killed hundreds of Jews. She did not call for the release of the Jewish hostages.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Ma) called for a pro-HAMAS ceasefire and did also not blame HAMAS for the killings: “These devastating attacks on Israelis are deeply alarming and my heart breaks for the victims & their loved ones. We need an immediate ceasefire & de-escalation. It is long past time to stop this cycle of violence & trauma, and work toward a just & lasting peace in the region.”
“We need urgent de-escalation,” said Rep. Summer Lee (D-PA), whose passive-voice statement lamented “the unfolding events in Israel and Palestine.” She did condemn HAMAS’s ‘horrifying attack on children and innocent civilians,” but did not condemn the attacks on Israeli soldiers.
Immigration fraud Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) condemned the “horrific acts” by HAMAS against “children, women, the elderly, and the unarmed people.” Her statement did not condemn the surprise attacks on Israeli soldiers, and she also called for “deescalation and ceasefire.”
Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) condemned the “horrific attacks” by HAMAS but did not call for a pro-HAMAS ceasefire; instead, he called for an end to the “blockade of Gaza.” The removal of inspections and checks of boats entering Gaza would make it far easier for HAMAS to import heavy weapons by sea from Iran for many attacks on Israel and Jews.
“We need a way to end this deadly violence,” Bowman said.
There is a way to end it, but Bowman and his comrades won’t like it because it involves the complete eradication of Palestinian terror groups.
