‘STFU’: Israeli Arab Muslim slams AOC for calling Israel an ‘apartheid state’
An Israeli Arab Muslim told Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to “STFU,” meaning “shut the f**k up” after she tweeted that Israel was an ‘apartheid state’ on Saturday.
The Arab Muslim who slammed Ocasio-Cortez, Mohammad Kabiya, was featured in a video for Prager U entitled “An Arab Muslim in the Israeli Army.” He is an Israeli Bedouin who served as part of a search and rescue team in the Israeli Air Force and later served as an Israeli Defense Forces consultant.
Ocasio-Cortez has made a slew of questionable statements regarding the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, even criticizing President Biden for implying that Israel has a right to defend itself from Hamas rocket fire.
Israel “has a right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory,” Biden said after Tel Aviv came under a barrage of hundreds of rockets launched by Hamas from the Gaza Strip last Tuesday.
“This is not neutral language. It takes a side — the side of occupation,” she said in reference to Biden’s support for Israel.
“I believe that injustice is a threat to the safety of all people, because once you have a group that is marginalized and marginalized and marginalized — once someone doesn’t have access to clean water, they have no choice but to riot, right?” She said in justifying violence on behalf of the Palestinians.
She also opposed a bill that condemned the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which is intended to weaken the state of Israel.
In 2019 she compared border migrant detention centers under the Trump administration to “concentration camps,” a comparison that many said trivialized the holocaust.
“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are – they are concentration camps,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Instagram.
