Streets of New York and Los Angeles were terrorized with anti-Israel rallies last week. Some of the leading Democrat figures including Representative Ayanna Pressley, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Representative Ilhan Omar, and Representative Rashida Tlaib are propagating a new layer of violence and terror under the guise of anti-Zionism in the country. It will be a very unfortunate state of affairs if such political violence is allowed to go on freely and unchecked in the streets of the United States as the country has still not recovered from the violent propaganda of Black Lives Matter.
Last week’s rallies also included attacks on the Jewish communities which did not spring forth in a vacuum but were well planned and well-executed by the group of above-mentioned so-called Progressive democrats. The American left seem to be moving forward from mere criticism and moving towards full-scale anti-Semitism. Such actions call out to democrats to clearly state which side they are on and what agenda do they really follow.
Squad members accused Israel of being an apartheid state and also claimed Israel is using United States military aid to target helpless Palestinian women and children which is a big accusation to lay. Most astonishingly these claims met no rebuke from liberals whose platform is being used to launch such accusations on the most respected institution of the country.
The intense attacks on Jewish communities even urged progressive leaders such as Amer Zahr, the former surrogate of Bernie Sanders to condemn these actions and call on progressives to stop the violence in his Tweet. Those democrats who try to present the case of Israel and why it needed to fight against terrorism of Hamas were immediately met with a layer of criticism and were demonized as white supremacists. Such incidents are an example of Democrat hypocrisy, which they try to hide at all costs no matter the consequences. Democrats often criticize Republicans for being a hypocrite and not condemning the wrongdoings of their leaders and followers but it seems that this claim is wrong.
Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Dick Durbin, who always label Republicans for anti-Semitism are nowhere to be found when it comes to condemning the acts of Anti-Semitisms by the so-called progressives.
Democrats need to address the anti-Semitism present inside their party lines and condemn such acts that promote violence in the country. The American public should see the real faces behind the mask that democrats wear to hide their hypocrisy and see them for what they really are. The country is already going through the worst crisis of its history and cannot afford violence on its street but the squad members do not seem to care about all this.
