Rift Growing Between Pro-Israel Democrats And Pro-Palestine Progressive Wing

Multiple outlets are reporting on a rift amongst Democrats during ongoing and escalating violence between Israel and Hamas terror groups in Gaza.

The Hill notes that several of the more progressive members of the party have condemned Israel over pending evictions of dozens of Palestinians from their homes in East Jerusalem, as well as police raids by America’s ally at the Al-Aqsa mosque.

“Key Democrats are pushing back against progressives who are criticizing the treatment of Palestinians by the Israeli government,” they reveal, noting that the violence marks President Biden’s first foreign policy crisis.

Fox News adds that the party also features Squad members like Rep. Ilhan Omar who accuse Israel of terrorism. 

“Escalating violence between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas has cast a spotlight on deepening Democratic divisions over the Jewish state,” they write.
