On Saturday Senator Ted Cruz slammed the so-called “squad”, a group of alt-left Democrat House representatives, for acting as the terrorist group Hamas press secretaries.
This comes after Democrat House Rep. Ilhan Omar accused Israel of terrorist activities that it supposedly carried out against Hamas and the Gaza strip. It’s important to note that this conflict was started when rocket fire from the Gaza strip rained death and destruction over Israel about two weeks ago (before Israel launched a counteroffensive against Hamas).
Cruz noted that the congresswomen acted more like press secretaries for Hamas than American representatives. The “Squad” includes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.
These representatives also support Defund the Police and other alt-left policies such as Medicare for all and free secondary education. The Green New Deal is also a construction of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a bill that even has the support of Bernie Sanders.

As violence in the Middle East increased, so did the rhetoric from the squad. It’s shocking because Israeli civilians were under fire, while Israel was strictly targeting Military targets.
Democrats Are Divided Over Israel
Israel is America’s top ally in the Middle East; therefore, it is expected that when it is facing an onslaught of missiles fired from Gaza, the USA would be the first ones to help out. Unfortunately, some Democrats have a different idea; they have shut down a bid that would see the USA help Israel fund ammunition for its Iron Dome defense system.
Why is this so important? The Iron Dome system literally saves lives. It intercepts incoming rockets by blowing them right out of the sky. The Iron Dome system is not an offensive weapon, meaning it causes no harm to any person; it merely intercepts incoming missiles and saves civilian lives.
Hamas terrorists have fired over 4,000 rockets into Israel.
Every one of those rockets might as well have Joe Biden's name written on it because it is his lack of backbone to stand with Israel that is causing this war. pic.twitter.com/nEttTNJWTf

Old Guard Democrats vs. the Woke Leftist Mob
Despite the Squad blocking the bill, Biden had talks with the Prime Minister of Israel last week and later said in a statement: “I assured him of my full support to [rebuild] Israel’s Iron Dome system” to ensure its future defense and security.
This reveals a rift between the old guard Democrats and the young Woke mob in the House of Representatives who have no regard for siding with Israel in the Middle East. On Tuesday, House Majority Steny Hoyer lashed out at members of his own party, the Democrats, for pushing policies that strengthen Hamas, Israel’s Arch enemy.
The House leader went so far as calling the Members of his own party “extremists.” Hoyer stated that “loss of innocent civilian life” in areas like Gaza and Israel are huge, due to repeated rocket attacks from Hamas.

He then declared that Israel has a right to employ measures of self-defense; these rights are especially true when Israel is on the receiving end of anti-Semitic attacks.
