(DCWatchdog.com) – As radical left hypocrisy knows no limits, the far-left “Squad” in the US Congress led by New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now trying to play the victim over the recent massacre of civilians in Israel by the Palestinian Islamist terrorist group Hamas.
In an interview with one of the leading far-left mouthpieces, MSNBC, on Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez decried a decision by the conservative Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to ban two of her “Squad” colleagues – US Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) – from visiting Israel.

In the wake of the October 7 terrorist attack on Israel, which massacred over 1,400 Israeli civilians, including 30 Americans, “Squad” members, such as Tlaib and Omar, have been siding with the Palestinian Arabs and attacking the Jewish State.
However, Netanyahu’s ban on the two radical-left congresswomen was imposed back in 2019 over anti-Semitic comments and statements they had made.
A report by The Daily Caller notes that during AOC’s interview on Saturday, MSNBC’s host Mehdi Hasan tried to claim that “somehow Americans are dehumanizing” over a dozen members of the US Congress who have urged a ceasefire in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, which would prevent Israel’s military response to the October 7 attack.
“How much of the Congressional indifference to Palestinian life in Gaza…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.
Ocasio-Cortez responded by claiming that the US Congress ignored the humanitarian plight of the overcrowded Gaza Strip, a small enclave of 2.2 million people.
“I have long found the ignoring and sidelining of the humanity of Palestinians in the five years that I’ve been in Congress quite shocking,” AOC said.
However, she then directed the conversation toward the 2019 Israeli travel ban on her colleagues Tlaib and Omar.
“I found it shocking, I found it SHOCKING, when in 2019 or 2020, in our first term, when Prime Minister Netanyahu banned two United States sitting members of Congress form coming to Israel,” the New York Democrat said.
“[Netanyahu] banned two members of the United States Congress 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,” she claimed further.
