Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found herself at the center of another anti-Israeli scandal this week; saying Palestinians “have no choice but to riot” and urging Americans to follow suit.
“Once someone doesn’t have access to clean water they have no choice but to riot. Right?” she said. “But it doesn’t have to be that way. I’m not even just talking about Palestinians, I’m talking about communities in poverty in the United States, I’m talking about Latin America, I’m talking about all over the world.”
“The same way me criticizing Trump doesn’t make me anti-American, criticizing the occupation doesn’t make you anti-Israel, frankly. It doesn’t make you against the existence of a nation,” she added.
Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her vitriolic rhetoric regarding the Middle East peace process in a recent interview; saying she absolutely agrees with the host’s criticism of the “criminal” Israeli government and other “White Supremacist Jevvs.”
