U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accused Israel of putting Palestinian children in cage-like prisons.
The New York Democrat was speaking at the Democratic Socialists of America event during a campaign rally for Greg Casar, who is running for Congress in Texas.
Ocasio-Cortez compared migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border to Palestinian children in the West Bank.
She said Palestine is basically a banned word, and has been censored from public discourse.
Ocasio-Cortez also spoke against charges of anti-semitism levelled against some of Israel’s biggest critics in the House, such as Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
