The most recent conflict in the Middle East has begun to manifest itself on American streets. In a recent incident, a group supporting the Palestinian cause took control of a federal office in the country’s capital, and surprisingly, it was a member of the U.S. Congress who led this protest. Critics on the conservative side argue that there is a perceived inconsistency in the handling of protests at the Capitol.

After the tragic events on October 7, where Hamas militants attacked Israelis, Western liberals began demonstrating their support promptly. They initiated these demonstrations without waiting for any response from Israel, even as security forces were still pursuing the last of the terrorist groups. 

Over the past two weeks, as Israeli military aircraft carried out airstrikes on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, these protests have been growing in both size and determination. In a recent incident, a group led by a Democratic politician took control of one of the offices within the heart of Washington, D.C.

On October 18, approximately a hundred demonstrators, led by Representative Rashida Tlaib from Michigan, entered the Cannon Office Building, which houses the offices of many congressmen and House staff. Several of the protesters were seen wearing black T-shirts bearing the slogan “Not in our name,” while others carried banners calling for Israel to halt its airstrikes on Hamas targets. Tlaib also spoke to a crowd outside the building, standing in front of a banner that advocated for a ceasefire.

Tlaib’s parents immigrated from Palestine, and among the group that entered the Cannon building, there were Palestinian-Americans. However, this assembly also comprised left-wing activists and Jews who hold anti-Zionist views. 

It is a matter of concern that a significant number of Americans exhibit strong animosity towards Israel, a democratic nation that maintains a close alliance with the United States. Some argue that the blatant double standards in dealing with left-wing protests are even more disconcerting.

During the protest, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia, who belongs to the Republican Party, was present at the Cannon building. She shared a video on social media featuring an enthusiastic crowd occupying the building’s lobby, engaged in chanting. She posted, “There’s an insurrection happening now on Capitol Hill. They are claiming they want peace but they want money to go to terrorists.”

Subsequently, the Capitol Police escorted the protesters out of the building, and this process occurred with relatively little commotion. Conservative author Luca Cacciatore drew a comparison between this event and the January 6, 2021 demonstration, remarking, “Insurrection — when conservatives demonstrate … Protest — when liberals demonstrate.”
