Members of the Democratic Socialists of America — to which U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., belongs — are seen in a newly resurfaced video chanting a slogan that calls for the elimination of Israel.
While implementing the anti-Semitic BDS (Boycott Divest Sanction) movement into their platform, they chant, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” reported the Red State blog.
The phrase coined by Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization calls for a Palestinian state in the territory where Israel exists, between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.
Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill lost his commentator gig with CNN in November after he used the phrase before the U.N.
“Give us what justice requires — and that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea,” he said.
The 2017 video was first reported by Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra.
Red State noted Ocasio-Cortez is a registered member of the Democratic Socialists of America party.
“Imagine for a moment if this were a Republican who voluntarily joined a group that shouts murderous, anti-Semitic propaganda derived from terrorist groups.”
On Thursday, the House passed a resolution crafted by majority Democrats that originally was meant to condemn anti-Semitic remarks by freshman Muslim U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
The majority Democrats, however, gradually watered down the resolution, omitting Omar’s name and adding a long list of condemnations of “hate,” including “Islamophobia,” white supremacism, anti-Catholic remarks against John F. Kennedy and treatment of Japanese Americans during World War II.
