AOC leads pack of ‘anti-Semitic radicals’ in giving the middle finger to Israel

A gaggle of far-left Democrats led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her “Squad” extended a big middle finger to Israel by refusing to support a House resolution that affirmed U.S. support for Israel, another reminder that hating on Jews is a badge of honor with up and coming progressives who will one day assume leadership positions in the party.

On Tuesday, the nine progressive lawmakers were the only holdouts in the bipartisan 412 to 9 vote that comes days after Progressive Caucus chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) sparked outrage for denouncing the Middle Eastern democracy as a “racist state” during the Netroots Nation event in Chicago over the weekend, a hateful remark that she was forced to walk back, issuing an insincere apology in a statement trashing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“It should be an easy vote. Will Dems stand with our ally or capitulate to the anti-Semitic radicals in their party?” House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) tweeted, daring Democrats to go on record with their contempt for the Jewish state.

The resolution, which was introduced by Rep. August Pfluger (R-Texas) comes during a visit by Israeli President Isaac Herzog who is set to address a joint session of Congress on Wednesday.

Jayapal ended up voting in favor of expressing support for one of the nation’s most important allies in a hostile area of the world but nine of her fellow left-wing firebrands didn’t.

In addition to AOC, the others who showed their contempt for Israel were charter “Squad” members Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) along with BLM activist bomb-thrower Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) and ticking time bomb Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.)

Rounding out the field were Reps. Summer Lee (D-Pa.), Andre Carson (D-Ind.), and Rep. Delia Ramirez (D-Ill.), with another Democrat, Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.) voting present.

“This week, we’re going to hear consistently that, you know, people talking about, like, ‘Oh, this is bipartisan support here.’ But don’t forget, this body, this Congress, supported the South African apartheid regime, and it was bipartisan as well,” Tlaib said from the House floor, denouncing the resolution by invoking the infamous South African policy that has become a talking point used by Jew-haters to smear Israel.

“Israel is our most important partner in the Middle East. It is critical for the U.S. Congress to send a unified message that we stand with Israel and unequivocally support our Jewish communities. I am extremely disappointed that Democrat members refused to vote against antisemitism and affirm that Israel is not a racist state,” Rep. Pfluger told Fox News Digital.
