Shame on you @bradlander you don’t represent New York when you justify Hamas terrorists!

Zohran K. Mamdani

Assembly District 36 (Queens)

"I mourn the hundreds of people killed across Israel and Palestine in the last 36 hours.

Netanyahu's declaration of war, the Israeli government's decision to cut electricity to Gaza, and Knesset members calling for another Nakba will undoubtedly lead to more violence and suffering in the days and weeks to come. The path toward a just and lasting peace can only begin by ending the occupation and dismantling apartheid."

Shahana Hanif

NYC Council District 39 (Brooklyn)

"The root cause of this war is the illegal, immoral, and unjust occupation of the Palestinian people. The Occupation has brought violence toward Israelis and Palestinians for over 75 years. There will be no peace unless the rights of all people in this region are respected."

We cannot be distracted in this call. The Palestinian people demand our solidarity, and we cannot let harmful rhetoric toward our Jewish neighbors, seen at the Times Square rally last week, obscure our calls for justice."

Sandy Nurse

NYC Council District 37 (Brooklyn)

"My heart goes out to New Yorkers with family in the region who are scared, hurt, or mourning right now.

"I condemn violence against and kidnapping of any civilians, collective punishment, military occupation and apartheid - it will never bring peace. The ongoing violence between Israel and occupied and blockaded Palestine is a tragic conflict that exemplifies the utter failure of the international community to enact justice and deliver peace. The loss of lives, the forced displacement of families, and the repeat destruction of communities are all heart-wrenching consequences of this long-standing conflict.

"All parties must prioritize de-escalation, diplomacy, accountability and a just resolution."

Jabari Brisport

Senate District 25 (Brooklyn)

Currently, from the River to the Sea, Palestinians are denied voting rights, food, water, electricity, and so much more.

It is wicked to say they shouldn't be free.

Solidarity with @RepRashida and shame on every Democrat who voted to censure her.

Marcela Mityanes

"There is no sanctity in defending any government’s right to defend itself as a justification to commit horrendous crimes against humanity. The bombing of a hospital and innocent civilians caught in a war in Gaza must be condemned, not justified."

The Governor has no empathy for her Palestinian constituents. Instead, she effectively calls for more deaths and war crimes.

NYC-DSA

"NYC-DSA believes in peace, equality, and freedom for all Palestinians and Israelis. We deeply mourn the loss of life in the region and unequivocally condemn all hatred and the killing of all civilians. Our sympathy and condolences go out to those who have lost loved ones or have loved ones in harm's way. On Saturday, in anticipation of escalatory violence to come, we tweeted a promotion of a rally in solidarity with the people of Palestine. We understand why many, including our allies, were shocked by the timing and the tone of this message in a moment of profound fear and grief. We are sorry for the confusion our post caused and for not making our values explicit.

"We are also concerned that some have chosen to focus on a rally while ignoring the root causes of violence in the region, the far-right Netanyahu government's escalating human rights violations and explicitly genocidal rhetoric, and the dehumanization of the Palestinian people. Gaza is now under a "complete siege." The Israeli Defense Ministry announced that it will cut off electricity, food, and water to over two million people, half of whom are children. The death toll is rising rapidly. No amount of violence, deprivation, or collective punishment will make everyday Palestinians and Israelis safe. We call for an immediate cease-fire to stop the senseless murder. We call for the end of the 75-year Nakba that includes the occupation of the West Bank, the end of the 16-year siege on the open-air prison that is the Gaza Strip, and the end of U.S. military aid for occupation and apartheid. That is the only pathway to safety and peace for all in the region."

Kristen Gonzalez

Senate District 59 (Queens)

Collective punishment is a war crime. Cutting off food, water, and electricity to millions of innocent civilians is a war crime. Ordering 1.1 million Palestinians to leave in 24 hours when they have nowhere to go is a crime against humanity.

Make no mistake, these actions by the Israeli government are genocidal. Innocent lives must be protected. Now is the time to organize and act. Call your representatives today and demand a ceasefire and deescalation.

Elected Officials and Advocacy Groups Trying to Have it Both Ways on Anti-Jewish Terror

Alexa Aviles

NYC Council District 38 (Brooklyn)

"My heart breaks to see so much death and destruction. My thoughts are with the Israeli and Palestinian civilians who face such terrible violence in the aftermath of yesterday's attacks.

"Many in our communities are hurting. Everyone is on alert and our first priority is to ensure all of our synagogues and mosques are safe. For all of our neighbors with family members or loved ones in the region who need assistance, you can call 833-890-9595 (toll free) and 606-641-0131, or visit crisis intake on the Department of State's website https://cacms.state.gov/s/crisis-intake), and contact the US Office of Palestinian Affairs' website (https://palestinianaffairs.state.gov/contact).

"I condemn all forms of hate, violence, and intolerance. Palestinian and Israeli people deserve dignity and to live free from violence. I urge our leaders looking on from afar to join me in calling for an end to the bloodshed and for a lasting peace."

Emily Gallagher

Assembly District 50 (Brooklyn)

"We are horrified by the ongoing events that began this past weekend in Israel and the Palestinian Territories, and we unequivocally condemn the murder and kidnapping of civilians by Hamas. We mourn the loss of all civilian lives, including both Israelis and Palestinians. We also completely reject the notion that accountability for these crimes warrants the collective punishment of civilians in Gaza, where more than two million people have struggled to survive years of blockade and aerial bombardment. As the late historian Howard Zinn once said, "There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people."

"Additionally, there were rallies in New York over the weekend in response to the violence in Israel, some of which failed to first acknowledge the fear, grief, death and destruction that was occurring. While we have been working to support our constituents whose loved ones and families have been directly impacted by the violence, we did not participate in or promote these rallies or actions. We are disturbed to hear reports of statements from individuals who attended which minimized or justified civilian deaths and the devastating impact of the violence committed in Israel.

"Our commitment to democratic socialism is rooted in solidarity with and dignity for all people. Our hope is for a rapid de escalation of the current violence. Only diplomacy that ends the occupation and respects the rights and dignity of everyone living in Israel and the Palestinian Territories can bring the liberation and safety that Palestinians and Israelis deserve."

Shekar Krishnan

"As war rages on, the devastation only grows. The accounts of mass killings of innocent Palestinian civilians, including hundreds of children, a collapsing health care system, and the deprivation of essential services are simply horrifying. I mourn the loss of life and reiterate my fervent hope that we embrace our shared humanity. Every life is precious."

Chi Ossé

NYS Council District 36 (Brooklyn)

"I have taken a few days since Hamas launched its brutal and inexcusable terrorist attack on the Israeli civilian population before making a statement. I condemn Hamas and their ruthless assault. Like most Americans - and certainly like most elected officials on the local level - 1 am no expert in the region's politics. I spent these days reading about the situation between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, including over a century of history and the details of Saturday's violent escalation. I have also discussed it in depth with people who have close personal connections to the region, and who have already lost loved ones in the violence. Ultimately, as both a representative of significant Muslim and Jewish communities, I am moved to issue this statement after fair and thorough research and education.

"While blame was once more evenly distributed, the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and its dominion over the Gaza Strip, now 56 years old, are the primary root of the violence. While Israel traded land for peace with Egypt, turning over the Sinai it captured in 1967 in exchange for normalized relations, the country held onto the West Bank and allowed it to flood with illegal settlers in an unending military occupation that eventually gave way to systemic subjugation. So committed to these illegal settlements is the Israeli government, in fact, that they were unable to repel Saturday's terrorist attack from Gaza because their army was so preoccupied with repressing Palestinians in the West Bank.

"This is the nightmare into which the majority of living Palestinians were born. The system is unjust, traumatizing, and cruel, with no end in sight. The Palestinian movement for national liberation is legitimate. It is a movement I support and endorse. It is a movement with a broad range of legitimate tactics, and any observer would be a fool to not expect violent resistance after all these decades of oppression, dispossession, and humiliation. Also, Hamas decades ago chose terrorism and power over Palestinian life and freedom. Those who support and celebrate them are, at best, dangerously misguided. Palestinians must achieve statehood alongside Israel and the Occupation must end.

"And the attack on civilians launched by Hamas this weekend was an act of barbaric terrorism. Parachuting into a music festival to slaughter teenagers, dragging children from their homes, parading the naked corpse of your victim through the streets, and massacring innocent civilians are unspeakable crimes against humanity that should be globally condemned. The single worst day of violence against Jewish civilians since the Holocaust is a day that will live in infamy.

"Both of these can be true at the same time. Both are."
