AOC ignores that that what instigated this was rocket fire from Hamas, not incidents at Al-Aqsa, where many had rocks. I highly doubt they were intending on peace.
This conflict will not ever be resolved unless people recognise that Israel isn’t targeting Palestine for no reason. Whether the response is appropriate is debatable, but I can’t see how it’s unfair for Biden to say he stands against rockets being fired at Israelis and for Israel’s right not to let its citizens die.
If the IRA were launching rockets at Liverpool it would be the most craven excusing to say we shouldn’t respond because it attacks all Northern Irish. It’s the same here. AOC is downplaying the situation for Israelis to get positive responses from the left, but ignores the reality for Jews.
