Ocasio-Cortez says cutting military, economic aid to Israel 'can be discussed'

Rep. Ilhan Omar participates in a news conference by members of the U.S. Congress

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who has compared retaliatory Israeli actions at the Gaza border against demonstrators urged on by Hamas to a "massacre", said on Sunday that decreasing the annual $3.8 billion in U.S. taxpayer assistance to Israel should certainly be "on the table".

In the early days of her primary campaign, Ocasio-Cortez had linked herself to the show.

Ocasio-Cortez struggled to address questions related to Israel while running for Congress last summer, admitting in one interview she is "not an expert" while also defending comments where she accused the Israeli military of a Palestinian "massacre".

The JDCA emphasized US-Israel ties "must supersede politics". According to a 2018 Pew Research Center study, Facebook's popularity among teens has plunged in recent years. A separate Pew Research survey found that 74 percent of US adult Facebook users have done one of the following: changed their privacy settings, taken a break from the platform or deleted it.

Ocasio-Cortez's voice then dropped to a whisper.

"I think so", Ocasio-Cortez responded. "And I think that-and I also acknowledge my role in in this as well in that I hope to play a facilitating role in this conversation and a supportive role in this conversation, but I also know there are people that have been leading on this for a long time like Congresswoman McCollum". I think it has effects on everybody: "increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism".

Ocasio-Cortez has been a prominent voice on social media and has even provided advice to fellow Democrats on how to use their own platforms. "Like every once in a while, you'll see me hop on Twitter on the weekends, but for the most part, I take consumption of content, when it comes to consumption and reading, I take the weekends off".
