A handful of houses Republicans who share a corridor with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., make sure she knows where they stand Israel.
Representative Michael Waltz, R-Fla., First put a “Stand With Israel” poster in front of her desk to make sure Ocasio-Cortez would see her every time she left her office to vote, said a Republican House source at Fox News.
Representatives Lisa McClain, R-Mich., Nancy Mace, RS.C., and Chris Jacobs, RN.Y., quickly followed suit, putting up posters outside their offices as well. All three are in the same hall as Waltz and Ocasio-Cortez.
“It is absolutely astonishing that members of Congress are trying to assimilate Israel’s right to defend itself against terrorist attacks orchestrated by Iranian-backed Hamas,” Waltz told Fox News.

“Americans must stand firm in reminding our country that we stand alongside our most powerful ally in the Middle East and remind the newly formed Hamas caucus that these marginal views will not be accepted in Congress,” Waltz continued.
McClain echoed Waltz’s concerns, saying it was “horrible” that Ocasio-Cortez and her allies sided with the terrorists and that she “proudly” posted the sign outside her door reminding everyone – especially to its Democratic neighbor New York across the hall – that America is on Israel’s side.
“I proudly hung a sign outside my office to show everyone, especially my neighbor across the street, that Republicans are united in defending Israel,” McClain told Fox News. “It is horrible that some House Democrats are siding with Hamas, a terrorist organization. Israel is one of America’s greatest allies and needs our support more than ever.”
“This week, I co-sponsored H. Res 394 and H. Res 396 to condemn the violent acts of Hamas against the State of Israel and to support Israel’s right to defend itself against acts of war.” , she added.
The New York congresswoman and her “Squad” allies were criticized earlier this month for their anti-Israel remarks amid clashes between the Hamas terror group and Israeli fighting forces.
