AOC Blames October 7 Attack on Abraham Accords, Jerusalem Embassy, and Golan Heights Policies


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) joined an anti-Israel commentator this week in attributing the massive Hamas terror attack on Israel on October 7 to the Abraham Accords peace deal and the inauguration of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.

The reasoning appeared to be that due to the close U.S. alliance with Israel during then-President Donald Trump’s term and the peace deals with other Arab nations, Palestinians felt compelled to commit terror acts to highlight their cause. (The same rationale has been used to justify Palestinian terror for fifty years, and the cause is widely known.)

The Jewish Insider website reported:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) concurred with a prominent far-left Twitch streamer last week that the Abraham Accords and other U.S. policies were largely responsible for the Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel. The political streamer, Hasan Piker, remarked that the attack was, “a direct result of the Abraham Accords and many of Jared Kushner’s and Donald Trump’s administration’s actions, such as moving the embassy to Jerusalem.” Ocasio-Cortez, appearing on Piker’s show, responded, “10,000%.” … During the stream, Ocasio-Cortez also described the Israeli operations in Gaza as a genocide.

According to the Times of Israel, some Democrats are starting to criticize Ocasio-Cortez and other members of the left-wing “Squad” for their extreme anti-Israel remarks.
