President Joe Biden issued a statement declaring that Israel had a right to defend itself from rocket attacks and many on the left immediately recoiled in horror, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
Israel has been bombarded by dozens of rocket missile attacks for several days while violence from supporters of the Palestinian cause has erupted against Jews in several Israeli cities.
On Wednesday, Biden defended Israel after speaking via telephone with the nation’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Israel has the right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory,” Biden said to reporters.
