U.S. Congresswoman gets attacked by the mob in shocking turn of events

The political polarization in this country has reached a fever pitch. Now no one is safe.

But now, a U.S. Congresswoman got attacked by the mob in a shocking turn of events.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) posted a strong condemnation on X against an antisemitic rally organized by the extremist pro-Palestinian group Within Our Lifetime (WOL).

The rally, titled “A Day of Rage for Gaza,” took place in New York City over the weekend, beginning at Union Square and ending at Wall Street, where an exhibit on the Nova Festival massacre — the brutal October 7 attack by Hamas terrorists that claimed the lives of hundreds of innocent Israeli civilians at a music festival — has been displayed since April.

The protest quickly turned unruly, with participants openly supporting terrorism and displaying blatantly antisemitic messages such as “long live October 7” and “the Zionists are not Jews and not humans.”

Some protesters were seen brandishing flags of Hamas’ armed al-Qassam Brigades, a recognized terrorist organization, while others defiantly waved the flags of the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah.

The incendiary rally underscored the deep-seated hatred and violent extremism that permeates certain segments of the pro-Palestinian movement.

In her post on X, Ocasio-Cortez stated, “The callousness, dehumanization, and targeting of Jews on display at last night’s protest outside the Nova Festival exhibit was atrocious antisemitism – plain and simple. Antisemitism has no place in our city nor any broader movement that centers human dignity and liberation.”

However, Ocasio-Cortez’s condemnation was met with fierce criticism from within the very movement she was attempting to address.

Nerdeen Kiswani, an organizer for WOL, fired back at the congresswoman, accusing her of being a “genocide apologist” and revealing that Ocasio-Cortez had previously sought to partner with their organization.

“You are a genocide apologist,” Kiswani responded. “This is why when your staff asked WOLPalestine if you can speak at our Queens rally in 2021 we said NO. What’s callous is the Zionist exhibit used to manufacture consent for genocide, but you don’t care since you didn’t vote against funding it.”

This revelation underscores a troubling inconsistency in Ocasio-Cortez’s public stance on issues related to Israel and Palestine.

While she now seeks to condemn antisemitism and distance herself from extremist elements, her previous attempts to align with a group that openly supports terrorism and spreads antisemitic propaganda raises serious questions about her judgment and true intentions.

The incident also highlights a broader issue within the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, where support for Palestinian causes often veers dangerously close to endorsing or excusing outright antisemitism and terrorism.

The fact that a sitting U.S. congresswoman would even consider partnering with a group like WOL speaks volumes about the radical elements that have infiltrated mainstream political discourse.

The backlash from WOL also reveals the deep divisions within the pro-Palestinian movement itself.

While some activists attempt to frame their cause in terms of human rights and liberation, others, like Kiswani, do not shy away from expressing their outright hatred and violent intentions towards Jews and the state of Israel.

In light of these events, it is imperative for political leaders to take a clear and unequivocal stand against antisemitism and to reject any form of alliance or partnership with groups that promote hate and violence.
