Breitbart News reports that the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) will host an “All Out for Palestine” rally in New York’s Times Square on Sunday in the wake of the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel that has claimed more than 700 lives (as of this writing) and thousands more injured.
The New York Post reports that DSA supporters are urged to “Wear a mask so you’re not recognized” while being told, “Best to just let the swastikas do the talking.”
For her part, Rep. Bush issued a statement calling for an end to “U.S. government support for Israeli military occupation and apartheid.”
“Never mind the hundreds of Israeli civilians and children who have been murdered, wounded, abducted, and terrorized. Their lives mean nothing to the DSA. Nothing,” Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) wrote in response Saturday. “The NYC-DSA is revealing itself for what it truly is: an antisemitic stain on the soul of America’s largest city.”

At DSA’s national convention in August 2017, its members voted by a large majority to pass a resolution “fully supporting” the worldwide Boycott, Divestment, & Sanctions (BDS) movement, a Hamas-inspired initiative designed to financially cripple and politically delegitimize Israel.
The resolution explicitly affirmed DSA’s “solidarity with Palestinian civil society’s nonviolent struggle against apartheid, colonialism, [and] military occupation[,] and for equality, human rights and self-determination.”
