AOC whines about Israel’s snub of anti-Semitic ‘squad’ members: ‘An affront’ to America

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) finds it “shocking” that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not want to allow antisemitic Muslim Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) into his country in 2019.

AOC appeared on MSNBC, with Muslim host Mehdi Hasan setting her up nicely by employing the race card while commenting on “congressional indifference to Palestinian life.”

“You mention dehumanization, almost all of the at least 18 House Democrats who called for a cease-fire in Gaza are people of color,” Hasan said. “How much of the congressional indifference to Palestinian life in Gaza, the refusal in D.C. to acknowledge sometimes the humanity and innocence, not to mention the suffering of all ordinary Gazans, how much of that is driven by the fact that they’re Arabs? Or they’re mostly all Muslims? Or they don’t look like us, do you think?” Hasan asked.

“I will say that I have long found the ignoring and sidelining of Palestinians in the US House of Representatives, the humanity of Palestinian populations, in the five years I have been in Congress, quite shocking,” Ocasio-Cortex replied on cue.

“We’ve been trying to raise the alarm bells around this for years. There has been virtually no acknowledgment in the United States House of Representatives about the extreme plight and continued human rights violations of the Palestinian people for years. I find it alarming. I found it shocking,” the former Bronx bartender added.

The socialist lawmaker then set her sights on Netanyahu as he is mired in battle defending Israel from the savage Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

“I found it shocking when, in 2019, or 2020 in our first term of the House of Representatives, when Prime Minister Netanyahu banned two United States sitting members of Congress from coming to Israel — Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar — from entering the country. That my own colleagues did not seem to say or do much of anything. That should be an affront to our entire government and country,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Israel said at the time that they would bar entry to “those who reject our right to exist in the world.”

Tlaib, a Palestinian American, and Omar, a Somali refugee, accused Israel of bombing a hospital in Gaza, and while Omar walked back her accusations after it became clear that it was an Islamic Jihad rocket, Tlaib’s tweet remains up on her X account.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from X:
