In the last week, amid an ongoing global pandemic, more than 3,100 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis have fled to bomb shelters, waiting for Palestinian aggression to subside and peace to return.
Hamas fired the first shot only days after President Biden funneled $235 million in U.S. aid to Palestine. The big lie, perpetuated by Democrats and their media allies, is that Israel plays the part of oppressor, when the Jewish state is merely defending its borders from terrorism.
How has the Left responded? Not with thoughts and prayers for Israeli victims. Nor with condemnation of Palestinian terrorism. No, the Democratic Party has responded to virulent anti-Semitic terrorism by doubling down on their own anti-Semitism—from Twitter to the airwaves.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called Israel, the only true democracy in the Middle East, an “apartheid state.” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) echoed her sentiment by condemning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the “apartheid-in-chief.” Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) even went so far as to accuse Israel of committing an “act of terrorism” after launching defensive air strikes against terrorist staging points into the Gaza Strip. She made no mention of Israel retaliating after Hamas and other Islamic jihadist militants bombarded multiple locations in Israel with rockets.
