AOC calls Netanyahu a ‘War Criminal”

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., fiercely criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming address to Congress next month, calling him a “war criminal,” and accusing him of having no regard for U.S. law.

House and Senate leaders from both sides of the aisle have invited Netanyahu to address Congress on July 24, delivering the most recent show of wartime support for the longtime ally despite mounting political divisions over Israel’s military assault on Hamas in Gaza.

House Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, along with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and House Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries, signed the letter extending the invitation to Netanyahu. They said the offer was intended to “highlight America’s solidarity with Israel.”

But not all members of Congress are in favor of the visit, including Ocasio-Cortez.

This man should not be addressing Congress. He is a war criminal,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a post on X. “And he certainly has no regard for US law, which is explicitly designed to prevent US weapons from facilitating human rights abuses. His invitation should be revoked. It should have never been sent in the first place.”

The representative and other progressive “Squad” Democrats are furious that their leaders agreed to invite Netanyahu to address Congress.
