Surprise: “The Squad” Propose Legislation To Block Arms Sales To Israel

Of course they did, when you have Rashiada Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, two Muslim supremacists as part of the group, who have shown their hatred of Israel and Jew many times. Notice there is nothing on blocking support for Hamas and the other Islamist terrorist groups, not stopping the flow of arms into the Palestinian areas, nor is there any condemnation of Hamas doing things such as willfully launching rockets at Israeli civilian areas

Ocasio-Cortez leading effort to block arms sale to Israel

A group of progressive House Democrats led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) introduced a resolution Wednesday aimed at blocking a $735 million arms sale to Israel.

The resolution is largely symbolic as Democratic leaders who support the sale are unlikely to give the legislation a vote and the window for lawmakers to force a vote to block the sale closes in a couple of days. But the effort underscores the growing divide among Democrats on Israel as a bloody crisis in Gaza continues.

“For decades, the U.S. has sold billions of dollars in weaponry to Israel without ever requiring them to respect basic Palestinian rights. In so doing, we have directly contributed to the death, displacement and disenfranchisement of millions,” Ocasio-Cortez in a statement announcing the resolution of disapproval. “At a time when so many, including President Biden, support a ceasefire, we should not be sending ‘direct attack’ weaponry to Prime Minister Netanyahu to prolong this violence.”

In addition to Ocasio-Cortez, the effort is being led by Reps. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). Other co-sponsors include Democratic Reps. Cori Bush (Mo.), Betty McCollum (Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Pramila Jayapal (Wash.) and André Carson (Ind.).

So, the chance of this being voted on is virtually none, and they are simply putting it out their to show their “solidarity” with the Palestinians, and very much showing their anti-Israel and anti-Jew beliefs. It’s basically Virtue Signaling using legislation. And the comments in the The Hill article are typical leftist Israel and Jew hatred. Just like in Los Angeles

Pro-Palestinian mob accused of attacking Jewish diners in LA, possible hate crime

An alleged violent attack on Jewish diners by a mob of pro-Palestinian supporters in Los Angeles on Tuesday night was being investigated as a possible hate crime, and triggered condemnation from Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Video footage of the attack posted to social media shows a group attacking at least two people outside the Sushi Fumi restaurant in the city’s Beverly Grove neighborhood, west of downtown Los Angeles.

In a pair of tweets addressing the violence, Garcetti, a Democrat, wrote there was “no place for anti-Semitism, discrimination, or prejudice of any kind in Los Angeles. And we will never tolerate bigotry and violence in our communities.”

Apparently there is. Jew hatred has been part of the Progressive community for decades. Of course you have Black Lives Matter, full of Jew haters, standing in solidarity with Palestine. And lots more far left groups

On Friday, 140 progressive groups, including Justice Democrats, Sunrise Movement, MoveOn and the Working Families Party, released a joint statement condemning Israel’s bombing of Gaza.

“We are horrified by Israel’s use of disproportionate and deadly force against Palestinians in Gaza which have already resulted in the killings of dozens of Palestinians, including children,” they said in the statement.

Notice that none of them denounce Hamas using children as human shields not wantonly attacking civilians in Israel.
