Cox: Ocasio-Cortez, Bowman and Velazquez turn their backs on Israel

Albany, NY — NYGOP Chair Ed Cox today released the following statement after Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jamaal Bowman and Nydia Velazquez joined fifteen other Democrats in voting against a bipartisan resolution, which passed 400-19, expressing support for the U.S.-Israel relationship and the Abraham Accords in honor of the 75th anniversary of Israel’s founding:

“These shameful no votes further prove that the Democratic Party has been infected by the socialist, anti-Israel far left, which does not believe that Israel has a right to exist, let alone defend itself.

“Through their past statements, their tolerance of casual antisemitism from members of their caucus including Reps. Omar and Tlaib, and now through their votes, Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Bowman and Velazquez have turned their backs on one of America’s closest allies and the work for a lasting peace in the Middle East.”
