With Joe Biden’s disastrous foreign policy resulting in renewed violence in the Middle East, some Democrats are siding with the enemy after Israel destroyed a building that contained offices for media organizations along with those occupied by terrorists.
On Saturday, the Israeli Air Force took out the Jala Tower in Gaza City where both the Associated Press and al Jazeera were housed resulting in outrage from the media, which condemned the strike and demanded action from the Biden administration.
Despite the early propaganda, the IDF was quick to point out that the 12-story building was being used by the terrorist organization Hamas which regularly uses such civilian operations as human shields.

Despite the fact that the presence of Hamas made the building into a legitimate military target, the top congressional allies of such extremist groups were quick to denounce Israel and leading the way as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad,” a pack of rabidly anti-Semitic socialists who have gained enormous influence within the Democratic party.
“This is happening with the support of the United States,” wailed AOC on Twitter, adding “If the Biden admin can’t stand up to an ally, who can it stand up to?”
This is happening with the support of the United States.
I don’t care how any spokesperson tries to spin this. The US vetoed the UN call for ceasefire.
If the Biden admin can’t stand up to an ally, who can it stand up to?
How can they credibly claim to stand for human rights? https://t.co/bXY99O3Wqp

Fellow Squad member Rashida Tlaib could have been reading directly from Hamas talking points when she tweeted that “Israel targeting media sources is so the world can’t see Israel’s war crimes led by the apartheid-in-chief Netanyahu,” adding that, “It’s so the world can’t see the killing of babies, children and their parents.”
Israel targeting media sources is so the world can't see Israel's war crimes led by the apartheid-in-chief Netanyahu.
It's so the world can't see the killing of babies, children and their parents.
It's so the world can't see Palestinians being massacred. https://t.co/AvDp3IuxUA

The virulently anti-Semitic Ilhan Omar erupted; “Disgusting and immoral for the US to endorse this violent bloodshed”, she tweeted, “I don’t know any other time when the US has actively blocked a ceasefire and allowed for civilians to get slaughtered.”

Biden spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and expressed his “strong support” for Israel’s right to defend itself, something that isn’t going to go over well with AOC and her Squad.

It could be that Biden has information that the others don’t, according to a report by the Jerusalem Post, Israel presented U.S. authorities with a “smoking gun” showing that Hamas was conducting terrorist operations out of the building.
The Jerusalem Post reported; “Officials in more than one government office confirmed that US President Joe Biden’s phone call to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday was, in part, about the bombing of the building, and that Israel showed Biden and American officials the intelligence behind the action.”
Additionally; “We showed them the smoking gun proving Hamas worked out of that building,” a senior diplomatic source said. “I understand they found the explanation satisfactory.”

The Post story also cites a 2014 piece from The Atlantic; “Hamas understood that reporters could be intimidated when necessary and that they would not report the intimidation… The AP staff in Gaza City would witness a rocket launch right beside their office, endangering reporters and other civilians nearby – and the AP wouldn’t report it, not even in AP articles about Israeli claims that Hamas was launching rockets from residential areas.”
The evidence should lead to serious questions about AP, a media organization that has repeatedly published stories that have contributed to fomenting the racial unrest that has torn America apart at the seams, something that both our foreign and domestic enemies are delighted with.
What did AP really know about who their neighbors were?
As for the Squad, they have much in common with Hamas and other terrorist organizations that hate America for the freedoms that they have done much to undermine.
