Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) slammed the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) for ads they ran that criticized Rep Ilhan Omar and AOC and their dishonest comments about the battle that erupted between Hamas and Israel.
Pelosi has to be careful as the Democratic Hamas Caucus is gaining in numbers in the House.
Democrats are critical of Israel’s retaliatory attacks against Hamas, who has shot 4,340 missiles into the civilian population in Israel.
That does not seem to trouble the Democrats 1/10th as much as Israel’s targeted attacks against Hamas. Anti-Semitism is raising it’s ugly head within the Democratic party.
These are the same Democrats who accused Trump of hating Jews despite the fact his daughter and grandchildren are Jewish.
“When Israel targets Hamas, Rep. Omar calls it an ‘act of terrorism.’”
“Hamas has fired thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians. This isn’t about evictions, annexation, or two states. It’s not about Palestinians or a better future. It’s about Hamas wanting to terrorize Israelis, destroy Israel, and gain power for itself and its Iranian backers.”
Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism.
Palestinians deserve protection.
Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don’t exist to protect Palestinian civilians.
It’s unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid. https://t.co/vWWQfMqBkT

And Hamas killing people in Israel is not terrorism? And Pelosi is defending these statements? 2022 will be a field day for Republicans if the Democrats continue with their extremist agenda.
People really do not like terrorists and by extension do not like elected officials who defend them.
AIPAC ran hard hitting ads that said:
“Israeli citizens — Jews and Arabs — have faced more than 3,100 rocket attacks over the past week from Hamas, an Iranian-backed terrorist organization. Tell Congress: America must stand with Israel.”
One image shows numerous Democrats with the caption:
“Israel is under attack yet some in Congress want to put political restrictions on our aid to Israel.”
Another featured Ocasio-Cortez, with the caption:

“‘It’s wrong’ for President Biden to say Israel ‘has a right to defend itself.’”
Omar tweeted this response:
“This is desperate and deeply offensive. The rights of Palestinians and all people yearning for freedom and self-determination will not be ignored and no level of harassment will silence me or the millions of people demanding peace and justice.”
So, exactly what are De4mocrats saying? That it’s okay for Hamas to launch a major attack on civilians in Israel but it’s wrong for Israel to react to this terrorism? Sadly, yes.
