On October 17, 2023, tensions increased in Israel when a rocket hit a hospital. Hamas immediately said that Israel targeted hospitals, and hundreds were dead.
That prompted massive protests in the region.

The Jordanians could have given the Palestinians their own state when they were controlling the land between 1948 & 67. But they didn’t.
They could take in Palestinian refugees now too.
But they don’t want that either.
Maybe they should sit this one out. https://t.co/A29bQne3lE

Unfortunately for Hamas, the supposed strike on the hospital was captured on video. The video clearly showed a rocket barrage being fired by Hamas into Israel, and one of the rockets fell short, hitting the hospital.

But that didn’t stop members of the Squad here in the USA from pushing disinformation. Representative Omar and Talib blamed Israel for the attack and when video evidence showed it was not, the Israelis didn’t issue a retraction and pushed more disinformation.
Bombing a hospital is among the gravest of war crimes. The IDF reportedly blowing up one of the few places the injured and wounded can seek medical treatment and shelter during a war is horrific.@POTUS needs to push for an immediate ceasefire to end this slaughter. https://t.co/dPJ48dyDe8

Breaking News: Israeli PM Netanyahu has lied to the public before.

Well, not even President Biden is playing their game. During a sit-down in Israel with Netanyahu, he busted the misinformation. It was half-hearted – and he was reading from his not cards – but it’s about as strong of a condemnation you are going to get from Joe.

Less can be said of Vice President Kamala Harris.
Kamala Harris sits in silence as an audience member peddles Hamas propaganda and baselessly accuses Israel and the U.S. of “genocide.”
Then she praises him: “I appreciate you raising the subject and I appreciate your leadership.”
