Code Pink Endorses Hamas Attacks on Israel; “Anti-War” Groups Announce Pro-Hamas Rallies in US

The masks are finally completely off of the communist front groups that have led the “anti-war” movement the past two decades. The communist group Code Pink, founded in 2002 to oppose the U.S. liberation of Iraq from the regime of the mass-murdering, genocidal, war-mongering tyrant Saddam Hussein, posted the group’s endorsement of the Hamas attacks on Israel Saturday as other “anti-war” groups announced plans for pro-Hamas rallies to be held across the U.S. over the long Columbus Day holiday weekend.

Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans was a fundraising bundler for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. The two shared a hatred of Israel and support for the Islamist regime in Iran that sponsors Hamas.

Code Pink posted support for Hamas in a statement on X Twitter on Saturday well after reports of Hamas atrocities against Israeli civilians had been widely reported, “The US-backed Israeli apartheid regime inflicts daily settler violence and terror on Palestinians. Israel is an occupying force. Palestinians have every right to resist it.”

Jodie Evans quote-tweeted the Code Pink statement with her own comment, “#freefreePalestine, Long Live Palestine”

Fellow Code Pink co-founder Susan “Medea” Benjamin posted, “The Israeli government can’t keep two million trapped in an open air prison in Gaza and not expect resistance.”

The communist Democrat Socialists of America is promoting a rally in support of Hamas to be held Sunday afternoon in Times Square in New York City. A graphic for the rally features several Palestinian groups as well as the communist “anti-war” group ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) which was founded in 2001 after the 9/11 terror attacks, “In solidarity with the Palestinian people and their right to resist 75 years of occupation and apartheid. FREE PALESTINE!”

The communist Party for Socialism and Liberation posted a statement in support of Hamas, “Resistance to apartheid and fascist-type oppression is not a crime! It is the inevitable outcome for all people who demand self-determination rather than living with the boot-heel of the oppressors on their necks.” The statement also called the Hamas atrocities against Israeli civilians, “a bold counter-offensive. This does not constitute terrorism.”
