Democratic Outrage Grows Over Pramila Jayapal’s Controversial Remarks on Hamas Actions

The Political Insider: Democrat Jayapal In Hot Water For Comments On Israeli ‘War Crimes’

Pramila Jayapal, a member of the far-left so-called Squad, found herself in hot water after suggesting that there needs to be a “balanced” criticism of Israeli “war crimes” when asked specifically about rapes carried out by Hamas.
The Washington Democrat made the controversial remarks in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, who specifically called out progressives for remaining largely silent on the horrific sexual crimes that had been carried out by the terrorist group against Israeli women.
“Morally, I think we cannot say that one war crime deserves another, that is not what international humanitarian law says,” she deviated.
“With respect, I was just asking you about the women and you turned it back to Israel. I’m asking you about Hamas,” Bash fired back in the tense exchange.
Jayapal’s comments seemingly equivocating Israel’s actions with the barbaric rapes carried out by Hamas drew criticism and condemnation from several Democrats.
Christine Pelosi, the daughter of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, absolutely tore into the Democrat Representative.
“Do not minimize, excuse, ‘balance’ or ‘both sides’ sexual assault – that is victim blaming we have spent decades trying to undo in the laws, the courts and the hearts and minds of the people,” demanded Pelosi.
Democratic attorney Dave Aronberg also took exception to her insisting on a “balanced” response.
Earlier this year, she was forced to apologize for calling Israel “racist.”
