Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken multiple votes against Israel and antisemitism issues in recent weeks — in defiance of the overwhelming majority of members from her own party, records show.
In just a few shorts weeks, AOC voted against condemning Hamas, against condemning antisemitism on college campuses and against aid to Israel.
On Oct. 25 the House voted to condemn Hamas by an overwhelming margin of 412-10.
But the Bronx socialist along with eight of her far-left Squad members opposed the measure.
On Nov. 2 when the House passed a resolution condemning support for Hamas and Hezbollah on college campuses. AOC was a no on that too, joining the minority of the chamber in a 396-23 vote.
AOC also voted that same day against sending $14.3 billion in emergency aid to Israel to help the country fight Hamas — in this case, joining most Democrats in opposition as the cash was decoupled from Ukraine aid.
When Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) was under fire for defending calls for genocide against Jewish people — AOC had her back, voting against a censure of her squad colleague — which 22 other Democrats supported this week.
AOC’s anti-Israel views are not new and long predate Hamas’ Oct 7 terrorist attack. In 2019 she voted with fellow squad-mates to oppose a bill condemning the antisemitic Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel.
When asked if AOC was a friend of Israel, Zionist Organization of America chief Mort Klein told The Post “Are the Ku Klux Klan a friend of black people?”
“AOC supports boycotting the state of Israel and has praised many Jew haters by name. She is extremely hostile to Israel,” he added.
A rep for Ocasio-Cortez pointed to an Oct 9 statement from AOC in which she condemned Hamas — but also called for a ceasefire.
