The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) will hold an “All for Palestine” rally in New York’s Times Square on Sunday, following the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel that claimed more than 500 lives and left several thousand injured. .
THE New York Post reports via an opinion piece attributed to its editorial board that DSA supporters are told to “wear a mask to avoid being recognized” while being told, “It’s best to let the swastikas do the talking.”
“Never mind the hundreds of Israeli civilians and children who have been murdered, injured, kidnapped and terrorized. Their lives mean nothing to the DSA. Nothing,” Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) wrote in response Saturday.
“The NYC-DSA is being revealed for what it truly is: an anti-Semitic stain on the soul of America’s greatest city.”
The NYC-DSA plans to hold a rally tomorrow, glorifying Hamas terrorism as “resistance.” Not to mention the hundreds of Israeli civilians and children who have been murdered, injured, kidnapped and terrorized. Their lives mean nothing to the DSA. Nothing.

THE New York Post The article details the DSA as the party of Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush, Rashida Talib – and New Yorkers Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal “Fire Alarm” Bowman.
For her part, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) issued a statement on the violence in Israel, calling on social media for “US government support for the Israeli military occupation and apartheid” while professing his sympathy for the dead and injured.
Bush draws a moral equivalence between Hamas terrorists and the Israeli army, mourns the deaths caused by the “bombing” of Gaza, before further condemning Israel’s “military occupation” and calling for “apartheid.”

THE New York Post The editorial further lays out the reasons why the Biden administration should do everything possible to support the Jewish state during these difficult times, stating:
This is a moment of clarification for America, which must present itself as an unwavering ally of Israel. They are monsters and the people who support them are despicable. To President Biden: Stop playing football with the Ayatollah and stand up against Iran’s warmongering. To Democrats: Denounce representatives who provide aid and comfort to murderers and kidnappers.
It ends with a simple exhortation: “And to New Yorkers: come to Times Square on Sunday at 1 p.m. Waving Israeli flags. Shout DSA. Show that hatred will not be tolerated.
