Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) blasted the Biden administration's response to terrorist attacks in Israel on Saturday.
The U.S. Office of Palestinian Affairs posted a now-deleted message that called for “all sides to refrain from violence and retaliatory attacks."
Tenney: Biden Admin. Urging ‘All Sides’ to Avoid ‘Violence and Retaliatory Attacks’ Shows They Don’t Back Israel https://t.co/ohlAWi1NDW

“It was egregious for the administration to look as if this was both sides. This is a clear attack from Hamas, sponsored by Iran, against our greatest ally," Tenney told Newsmax.
"This is not about Israel…doing anything aggressive. They need to stand up, and they need to defend their citizens. I’m with Netanyahu 100% on this. The Israelis need to stand strong, and we need to be with them," she added.

We cannot conflate terrorists targeting Israeli civilians and our greatest ally in the region defending itself.

Tenney also took to social media to criticize the Biden administration's response to the attacks on Israel.
"@USPalAffairs tweeted out that 'all sides' must refrain from violence. We cannot conflate terrorists targeting Israeli civilians and our greatest ally in the region defending itself," Tenny wrote.
"Whomever wrote this tweet must be fired and the Biden administration must publicly denounce this shameful tweet," she continued.
More than 600 people in Israel were killed over the weekend in the most deadly attacks in the nation in decades.
The attacks by Hamas also took the lives of at least four Americans, with over 1,500 injuries reported across the nation.
The Biden administration's response could certainly be stronger, as Americans should stand behind its ally in opposing the attacks against Israel.
