Karine Jean-Pierre, White House Press Secretary, declared on Tuesday that statements by some left-wing Democrats equating Israel and Palestinian Hamas terrorists were “wrong,” “repugnant,” and “disgraceful.”
As reported by Breitbart News, a few left-wing Democrats including members of the “Squad” issued statements following the recent large-scale attack from Hamas that suggested an immediate ceasefire and de-escalation and faulted Israel for Palestinian civilian casualties.
Asked at a White House press briefing to comment on the statements by these Democrats, Jean-Pierre said:
We believe they’re wrong, we believe they’re repugnant, and we believe they’re disgraceful. Our condemnation belongs suqarely with the terrorists who have brutally murdered, raped, and kidnapped hundreds, hundreds of Israelis. There can be no equivocation about that. There are not two sides here. There are not two sides. President Biden has been clear on where he has stood.
In the past, Jean-Pierre has held extreme leftist positions concerning Israel and its government.
Recently, President Joe Biden declared that Israel was justified in utilizing countermeasures to combat terrorism from Hamas and further stated that the U.S. would offer assistance for as long as necessary to ensure the nation’s safety and security.
National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan affirmed this sentiment.
