President Biden was recently slammed by Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for his recent remarks on the episode of Israeli and Palestinian violence.
The Rep was quick to call the President out for his bold and blunt comments regarding which he mentioned how Israel has every single right in the world to defend itself against the hundreds of rockets being thrown into its territory. Moreover, the Rep accused him of siding with the side of occupation and stating how he supported the false idea that accuses the Palestinians of instigating the violence.
The news came after Biden took part in a phone call with Israel’s Prime Minister, assuring him of full support regarding their means of attack as he felt it was ‘justified’ to launch attacks as long as it was in defense.
But many people including AOC felt the president was turning a blind eye to Israel’s brutal violence against so many innocent Palestinians.
The comments by AOC were made through her Twitter account on Wednesday, where she sent out the response, right after Biden went on declaring how he hoped the conflict would end soon.
“I just had a telephonic conversation with Israel’s prime minister,” mentioned Biden to reporters at the White House. “My expectation and hope are that this issue will soon come to an end now, then later. But I will say that Israel has the right to defend itself over the thousands of rockets being launched into its nation,” Biden added.
AOC went on to refer to Biden’s comments as blanket statements that have zero to the little context of absolute acknowledgment regarding what actually began the violence in the first place,” she added.
“The US cannot look the other way around when it comes to violations of human rights,” she added. In the end, she boldly wrote, “It is wrong!”
