This is about good and evil. But that’s what it was always about. It’s just clearer now.
After the torture, rape and murder of Israeli civilians, the desecration of corpses, and taking women and children hostage, Islamists and leftists proudly stand with Hamas.
Cornel West called “for an end to the vicious U.S.-supported Israeli occupation” while claiming that the rape and murder of Israeli women was the “violent resistance to oppression is the desperate language of an occupied people.”
Jill Stein, the former Green Party candidate who is helping Cornel West’s presidential campaign, tweeted, “when a murderous occupation makes peaceful resistance impossible, it makes violent resistance inevitable.”
“The US-backed Israeli apartheid regime inflicts daily settler violence and terror on Palestinians. Israel is an occupying force. Palestinians have every right to resist it,” Code Pink tweeted.
The Democratic Society of America (DSA), the leftist insurgent group within the Democratic Party linked to the ‘Squad’, clearly picked its side.
The Democratic Socialists of America, which boasts six U.S. House of Representatives as members, announced a pro-“Palestine” rally in New York City’s Times Square on Sunday, a day after Hamas launched a surprise attack that killed 600 Israelis.
“In solidarity with the Palestinian people and their right to resist 75 years of occupation and apartheid,” the New York City chapter of Democratic Socialists of America announced
The various anti-Israel rallies were explicit in support of Hamas.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators on Sunday in New York celebrated Hamas’s massive deadly terror attack against Israel, as supporters of the Jewish state held rallies to mourn and express outrage over the slaughter.
Several hundred pro-Palestinian demonstrators rallied in Times Square, waving Palestinian flags and chanting “Resistance is justified,” “Globalize the intifada,” and “Smash the settler Zionist state.”
“From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” they chanted.
Among the pro-Palestinian side, the mood was celebratory and spiteful. Demonstrators chanted “700,” apparently referring to the confirmed number of Israeli fatalities in the attack so far, and held up the number seven on their hands while making throat-slitting gestures. Others flashed victory signs with their hands while shouting insults.
One man held up a picture of an Israeli hostage on his phone and waved it at the Israeli crowd. Another was seen brandishing an image of a swastika.
“The oppressed people of Palestine broke out of the open-air prison,” one speaker told the crowd, to cheers.
The press releases from the Muslim Brotherhood in America were equally predictable.
The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), which includes CAIR, and claims to be the largest Muslim group in America, condemned Israel while making no mention of Hamas and its atrocities.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a leading Muslim civil rights group, expressed its “support for the Palestinian people’s right to freedom.”
The national chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, the leading pro-Palestinian college group, said, “Callous oppressors only know the language of destruction.”
“Palestine will not be liberated overnight. Liberation is a long-term process,” the group said on Instagram, falsely referring to Sderot and Netivot, targeted Israeli cities near the border with Gaza, as settlements. “We stand in solidarity with those who are oppressed, colonized and fighting for liberation.”
Students for Justice in Palestine chapters across the US, including at American University, Rutgers, UC San Diego, the University of Minnesota and San Jose State University, all celebrated “the resistance.”
In New York, the pro-Palestinian groups Within Our Lifetime, Samidoun, Decolonize This Place, Al-Awda and others announced rallies on Sunday in Times Square and on Monday at the Israeli consulate “to defend the heroic Palestinian resistance.”
31 organizations at Harvard joined in including the Harvard Islamic Society and other Islamic and allied leftist identity politics groups.
None of this is surprising. The question is how long until it hits home in the United States. This is not just something happening in Israel. It’s part of Islam’s war against the West. The enemy is here. And so are their collaborators.
