The left in America is once again making it clear that for all their accusations of Republicans being bigots, they have long been reflexively anti-Israel, and the anti-Semitism behind that political stance has never been more obvious. So far this week, as Israel has defended itself against hundreds of missiles launched by Hamas terrorists at its civilian men, women and children, here’s how America’s Democrat leaders have responded:

President Biden is reportedly pressuring Israel to call a ceasefire, even while they’re still under attack. Even that’s not enough for far-left “Squad” members like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who are criticizing Biden for not being harsh enough in condemning Israel for defending itself.

On a 217-209 party line vote, House Democrats blocked a Republican bill to apply sanctions on Hamas militants and on foreign entities that are supplying Hamas with funding that supports its terrorism. The same bill passed the House unanimously in 2019, but wasn’t taken up for a vote in the Senate

This kind of pro-Hamas propaganda from the top is filtering down to Democrat voters. In a new Trafalger poll, nearly twice as many Democrats blamed Israel for the violence in Gaza than blamed Hamas or the Palestinian Authority combined, despite the fact that Israel is acting in response to hundreds of missiles being launched by Hamas at its civilian population centers.

The most egregious of all is “Squad” leftist Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who claims Palestinian heritage and is openly siding with Hamas and spreading slanderous falsehoods about Israel. Rep. Dan Crenshaw shared a video from Arab journalist Yoseph Haddad, who lives in Israel and who ripped her claims to shreds. This is a MUST-READ:

Haddad said that while Tlaib accuses Israel of unprovoked violence against Arab Muslims, Hamas has fired over 1600 rockets (“each one a war crime”) into Israel, where Arab Muslims like him also live. He said she makes “no mention of the fact that Hamas murdered Israeli Arab Muslims in Lod, no mention of the fact that Palestinians started a violent riot…which is why police were forced to [be] involved in the first place. No mention of the fact that this terrorist organization is targeting 1.9 million Israeli Arabs or that they have already murdered 17 Palestinians in Gaza with rockets intended to hit Israel. Do those Palestinians’ lives not matter, Rashida?”

She even blamed Israel for a power failure in Gaza that Haddad points out was actually caused by an errant Hamas missile, and it’s hardly the first time that’s happened.

Haddad went on to blast Tlaib for trying to hijack the Palestinian cause the same way she tries to hijack the black struggle in America to make it about herself, concluding, “Rashida, I’m telling you, as an Arab-Israeli on the ground, your words contribute to division and violence in my country…you don’t have to live with the consequences. Represent your people — in Michigan. Because you sure as hell…don’t represent us.”

I have nothing to add other than to point out that she also uses her words to contribute to division and violence in this country and seems to have zero interest in representing the people of Michigan either. If she were really concerned about racism, she might acknowledge her own, since as Dennis Prager has pointed out, anti-Semitism is the worst form of racism because it seeks to exterminate an entire ethnicity.

Prager also has an excellent premium article in the Epoch Times in which he observes that the dispute Hamas and its backers in Iran have with Israel isn’t over anything Israel has done, it’s over Israel’s existence. And nothing will satisfy them short of Israel agreeing to destroy itself, which also seems to be what it would take to satisfy American leftists like Tlaib. As Prager writes:

“For most (not all) Muslims and for most (not all) Muslim states and for the left, there is room in the world for 22 Arab countries and for more than 50 Muslim countries, but there is no room for one Jewish state, even one the size of New Jersey and smaller than El Salvador.”

Predictably for a Democrat Administration, President Biden is reportedly pressuring the Israelis to “wind down” their offensive in Gaza.

Hamas is still firing rockets at Israel, but liberals think that nine days of fighting to stop them is enough and Israel should pull back now. Where have I heard this strategy before, of pulling out before the enemy that attacked you is defeated? Oh yes, it was under Obama/Biden, when the troop pullout to meet an election deadline created a vacuum that allowed for the rise of ISIS.

How about if the Biden White House lets Israel make its own decisions about protecting its people? They’re obviously far more competent at it than anyone in the Biden White House.

Case in point: House lawmakers are frustrated with the Biden White House’s “total lack of a sense of urgency or a plan” to aid thousands of Afghans who worked as interpreters and in other jobs for the US. They’re in danger of being hunted down and killed by the Taliban after Biden pulls all our troops out by September 11th. Florida Republican Rep. Michael Waltz, a former Green Beret who worked with Afghan interpreters, said, “The day the last U.S. soldier goes wheels up out of Bagram air base, we’ve handed these people a death sentence.”

House members sent a bipartisan letter to Biden on April 21st, urging him to expedite special immigrant visas for Afghans who helped Americans. The average time to process a visa is 800 days, there are now only 115 days until the planned Afghanistan pullout, and Biden hasn’t even responded to the letter they sent nearly a month ago. It sounds as if he put Kamala Harris in charge of it.

The State Department says it added staffers to process the visas, but that’s not sufficient considering the “massive bureaucratic delays” they have to deal with.

Does anyone else get the feeling that if we still had Trump in the White House, those bureaucratic delays would be cleared out of the way if it meant saving thousands of lives?

Under Fire

May 19, 2021

The co-founder of BLM has been under fire recently for spending millions of dollars on expensive homes in largely white upscale areas. Her flabbergasting response was to imply that she’s standing up to racism in the housing market by using black homeownership to disrupt white supremacy.

https://redstate.com/jeffc/2021/05/17/blm-founder-co-founder-patrisse-cullors-laments-white-supremacy-in-housing-market-after-buying-luxury-home-n381877

This excuse ignores the fact that criticism of her lavish lifestyle is also coming from the left, with questions about how all those millions in donations from rich liberals and woke corporations that poured into BLM are being spent, since they’re not going to help local black communities.

In addition to the article, I’d also like to call attention to a lengthy comment on this story from a reader who claims to have been a Realtor licensed in two states. This person called “Bull(bleep)” on the claim that Realtors discourage black buyers from buying homes in white areas. He/she pointed out the ruinous fines Realtors can face for discrimination and pointed out that they work 100% on commission and none would turn down a paycheck just because they won’t sell a house to a minority.

Case in point: apparently, the co-founder of BLM had no trouble buying houses in very white areas. All she had to do was show a lot of green, and what do you know? She had it.
