NYC DSA members playing both sides of Israel-Hamas conflict in wake of terror attacks

Not long after Hamas’ sudden terrorist attack on Israel last week, Democratic officials around New York reacted like many other observers — with shock, abject horror and anger over the violence.

While most responses included condemnation of Hamas, they also had attached to them criticism of the Israeli government for its treatment of the Palestinian people.
