For Pro-Hamas ‘Within Our Lifetime,’ AOC, Bowman, and Sanders are All ‘Sellouts’

What’s that about a revolution eating its young? The True Believers — deeply pro-Hamas, ardently anti-Israel, and it goes without saying, unshakably antisemitic — who belong to Within Our Lifetime (WOL), will be satisfied with nothing less than the disappearance of Israel and its replacement by a 23rd Arab state. They have now turned on one of the original squadroons, ex-bartender Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose savage criticism of Israel hasn’t been nearly savage enough for the likes of WOL. More on the fury they are now directing at her can be found here: “Antisemitic Pro-Palestine Group Set To Protest Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez at Rally,” by Corey Walker, Algemeiner, June 21, 2024:

“Within Our Lifetime (WOL), headed by Nerdeen Kiswani and Fatima Mousa, staged a protest on June 22, during the appearance of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY at an open-air rally at St. Mark’s Place, where she was trying to drum up support for Jamaal Bowman, who is 17 points behind his Democratic primary rival, George Latimer. Congressman Bowman is even more anti-Israel than AOC; he has accused the Jewish state of “ethnic cleansing” and “genocide,” and now he wants the Biden administration to cut off all weapons support to Israel while that country is fighting a four-front war.

Despite Ocasio-Cortez’s longtime antagonism towards Israel, WOL said that the congresswoman has not shown sufficient support for the Palestinian cause. In particular, the organization takes umbrage with Ocasio-Cortez over her decision to support President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign amid a so-called “genocide” in Gaza….

The Within Our Lifetime fanatics are prepared to see Biden — in their view “Genocide Joe” — lose the election. Their support goes only to those who, like themselves, want nothing less than the destruction of the Jewish state. The others — AOC, Jamaal Bowman, Bernie Sanders — are “sellouts” according to WOL, for they haven’t yet gone that far, though it could be argued that Bowman’s demand for a cutoff of all American military aid to Israel is equivalent to calling for that country’s destruction.

June 22 has come and gone. AOC and Bernie Sanders held their rally in support of Jamaal Bowman at St. Marks Place; 300 people attended. Outside the rally, and held back from surging into it by the police, 150 WOL protesters screamed their rage against AOC, Sanders, and Bowman. They accused AOC of providing “progressive cover” for Israel’s military operations in Gaza. They called her a Zionist “sellout.” They fixed the same epithet on Bernie Sanders and Jamaal Bowman: both of them “sellouts,” despite accusing Israel of “genocide” and calling for a cut in aid to the Jewish state.

Occasio-Cortez [sic] harshly denounced the antisemitic protest, much to the ire of many anti-Israel activists.

“The callousness, dehumanization, and targeting of Jews on display at last night’s protest outside the Nova Festival exhibit was atrocious,” she said on Twitter/X.

Now the war is well and truly on, between the extreme anti-Israel fanatics of WOL and three well-known politicians who are in the anti-Israel camp, but apparently not sufficiently so for the members of WOL, who now describe all three as “sellouts.” To wit, these are: Jamaal Bowman, only a little less extreme than WOL in his anti-Israel animus; the willing-to-allow-Israel-to-live-on-sufferance Bernie Sanders, and the occasionally reasonable squadroon AOC, who has even, once or twice, condemned antisemitism.

In 1934, Hitler sent his jackbooted killers to murder Ernst Röhm, the head of the Stormabteilung (SA), or Stormtroopers, and his henchmen, in what entered history as the Night of the Long Knives. Mao Zedong in 1930 accused his rivals in the Communist Party of belonging to the Kuomintang intelligence agency, the “Anti-Bolshevik League,” and had many of them executed. And Stalin, of course, had Sergei Kirov, head of the party in Leningrad, and a popular figure who dared on occasion to stand up to Iosif Vissarionovich, assassinated in 1934, and following the purge trials in the 1930s, Stalin had most of the remaining Old Bolsheviks executed.

The internecine warfare in the anti-Israel camp of the saints has now begun. Pull up a metaphorical chair, and watch as the war of words — between WOL and Jamaal Bowman, WOL and AOC, WOL and Bernie Sanders — heats up. Hope, for Israel’s sake, that it does not stop within our lifetime.
