No moral equivalence, US senator says

New York Senator Chuck Schumer, a prominent supporter of Israel, gives a fervent speech backing the Jewish state on Wednesday, declaring, “It must be said: There is no moral equivalence between the actions and reactions of Israel, and Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, to the violence that has occurred there.”

He went on to cite the universal condemnation of the murder of Palestinian teen Muhammad Abu Khdeir among Israeli leaders and public figures, compared to the celebrations and non-condemnations among many Palestinians to the three slain Israeli teens.

Schumer also noted Hamas’s rocket fire leading up to Israel’s operation, its targeting of Israeli civilians, compared to Israel’s measures to protect civilians.
