White House: ‘Squad’ Democrats comments on Israel ‘wrong,’ ‘repugnant’ and ‘disgraceful’

The White House has condemned comments by some congressional “Squad” members about the devastating terrorist attacks on Israel as “wrong,” “repugnant” and “disgraceful.”

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked Tuesday for President Biden’s response to the progressive lawmakers who focused on calling for an immediate cease-fire and for the US to stop funding Israel.

“I’ve seen some of those statements this weekend, and we’re going to continue to be very clear. We believe they’re wrong, we believe they’re repugnant, and we believe they’re disgraceful,” Jean-Pierre said, without naming names.

“Our condemnation belongs squarely with terrorists who have brutally murdered, raped, kidnapped hundreds, hundreds of Israelis. There can be no equivocation about that. There are not two sides here. There are not two sides,” she added, according to Fox News.

The progressive, pro-Palestinian reps who are part of the “Squad” focused on calling for all violence to stop — and for Biden to cease providing funding to the Jewish state.

The Democratic Socialists of America also promoted a pro-Palestinian rally in Manhattan Sunday even as Israel was counting its more than 1,2000 dead, including horribly mutilated kids.

On Wednesday, Rep. Shri Thanedar (D-Mich.) renounced his membership in the party in disgust at the rally and the delayed response to the anger it sparked.

“After the brutal terrorist attacks on Israel, which included the indiscriminate murder, rape, and kidnapping of innocent men, women, and children, I can no longer associate with an organization unwilling to call out terrorism in all its forms,” Thanedar, 68, said in a statement.

“Sunday’s hate-filled and antisemitic rally in New York City, promoted by the NYC-DSA, makes it impossible for me to continue my affiliation. I stand with Israel and its right to defend itself. There is no place for moral equivocation in the face of unadulterated evil as we have seen from Hamas.”

2006: Terrorist group Hamas wins a Palestinian legislative election.

2023: Hamas launches the biggest attack on Israel in 50 years.

Over 1,300 Israelis are dead, more than 3,000 are wounded and at least 100 were taken hostage, with the death toll expected to rise after Hamas terrorists fired thousands of rockets and sent dozens of militants into Israeli towns.

Hamas terrorists were seen taking female hostages and parading them down the street in horrifying videos.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced “We are at war” and vowed Hamas would pay “a price it has never known.”

Gaza health officials report at least 1,400 Palestinians have been killed more than 6,000 injured.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Sunday called the declaration of war by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “devastating” blow for anyone “seeking a lasting peace and respect for human rights.”

“An immediate cease-fire and de-escalation is urgently needed to save lives,” the New York Democrat said, while also condemning “Hamas’ attack in the strongest possible terms.
