Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has claimed that Palestinians have no choice but to riot against Israel – and agree with a radio presenter that the country & # 39; criminal & # 39; is.
The 29-year-old, who serves as the US representative for the 14th Congress District of New York, made the comments during a performance on the hip-hop program & # 39; Ebro in the morning & # 39; with Ebro Darden.
Her appearance begins with Darden, 44, who says in his WQHT radio program that & # 39; corrupt & # 39; Governments in Israel, the United States, Russia and Saudi Arabia & # 39; all work in concert & # 39 ;.
He added that he wants to educate Israel because AOC has talked about Palestine and the occupation and what needs to be done there – before AOC agrees that even in Israel people are trying to get rid of & # 39; from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

& # 39; How do you have white supremacist Jews? & # 39 ;, Darden says.
& # 39; How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are legitimately in line with racism and white supremacy, but they are Jewish? And it is something that most people cannot wrap their brains around. But it's real. & # 39;
He adds: & # 39; And what is the matter with Israel and Palestine, while it is very, very, deep, it is very, very, criminal, and it is very, very unjust. & # 39;
Whereupon AOC & # 39; absolutely & # 39; replies, before saying: & i also think that where we are as a country when it comes to Israel-Palestine is very much a generation problem. & # 39;
She tells Darden that when viewing the problem through the lens he suggested, many things & # 39; start to be right & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The Netanyahu government is very similar to the Trump government, # she says.
& # 39; The law wants to put forward this idea that if you criticize Israeli policy, you are anti-Semitic. But it is furthest from the truth. & # 39;

AOC also compares the Netanyahu government with the Trump government in the radio interview, saying that its criticism of Trump is not necessarily anti-American
She says that her criticism of Trump does not make her anti-American.
She adds: & # 39; Criticism of the occupation does not make you anti-Israel. It does not make you against the existence of a nation. It means that you believe in human rights. It is about ensuring that Palestinian human rights are equal to Israeli human rights. & # 39;
AOC said that when you criticize another country, the response is not the same, but adds that it is a & # 39; very deep & # 39; understands history with Israel.
& # 39; Jewish people have been persecuted throughout human history, but I don't think marginalizing Palestinians creates your security & she adds.
& # 39; 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 has no access to clean water, they have no choice but riot , yet? And it doesn't have to be that way. & # 39;
Her comments come after she and other first-year Democratic congress women were accused of anti-Semitism for criticizing Israel.
Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley blamed the president earlier this month for what they call a & # 39; racist & # 39; tweet, in which he said they complain too much and & # 39; should go back to where they came from & # 39;
AOC, along with Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib are & # 39; the team & # 39; called. They have openly criticized Trump's foreign policy, tax cuts, environmental policy and other policy priorities.
They accused the president of being a & # 39; racist & # 39; tweet, in which he said they complain too much and & # 39; should go back to where they came from & # 39 ;.
Trump has doubled on his tweets – made earlier this month – in another series of messages in which Democrats were accused of standing up for people who talk so badly & # 39; about the US.
& # 39; It's so sad to see the Democrats stand up for people who speak so badly about our country and who also hate Israel with a true and boundless passion. & # 39;
All four women were elected to the house for the first time in the 2018 mid-term elections and form a small group of progressive freshman minorities in the caucus.
They also caused a stir by voting against a bill to provide $ 4.5 billion in emergency border funding.
AOC was again criticized yesterday for & # 39; spread of anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity & # 39; after she said detention centers for migrants & # 39; concentration camps & # 39; goods.
Ed Mosberg, 93, of Morris Plains, New Jersey, destroyed the Democratic congresswoman who represented Queens and the Bronx on Saturday.
"The people at the border are not required to be there – they go there on their own," he told the New York Post
& # 39; If someone doesn't know the difference, they play stupid or don't care. & # 39;
