Contrary to Hamas’s hopes that it could follow October 7 with further attacks, or inflict massive casualties on the IDF within Gaza, its atrocities have only strengthened Israeli resolve and led to a so-far remarkably effective Israeli counterattack. Yet Hamas has succeeded at galvanizing massive anti-Israel demonstrations in the U.S., Australia, and Western Europe, along with the harassment of Jews in these countries. Asaf Romirowsky and Alex Joffe examine how a “red-green alliance” between the far left and Islamists has enabled this victory:
The fruits of decades of Muslim immigration, legal and illegal, into Europe are now fully revealed. This brought the establishment of parallel societies beyond the reach of governments.
In the United States, similar successes have long been underway at somewhat smaller scales, guided by Muslim Brotherhood figures linked directly to Hamas in some cases. The linkages among the Council on American-Islamic Relations, American Muslims for Palestine, Students for Justice in Palestine, the Muslim Students Association, and the Palestinian Youth Movement point to domestic elements implacably opposed to Israel that take advantage of American tolerance, albeit crying “Islamophobia” at every opportunity.
The red components, the dizzying array of seemingly disparate entities from the Democratic Socialists of America, Just Stop Oil, Black Lives Matter, the Palestinian Youth Movement, IfNotNow, Jewish Voice for Peace, and more, have been responsible for putting bodies into American streets. All are funded by the same array of far-left foundations and dark-money bundlers with the support of “human rights” nongovernmental organizations. . . . All act as foot soldiers, increasingly for one another’s causes, and all are increasingly unhinged and violent. They are all part of the same broad movement, anti-American, anti-Israel, and anti-Western.
