"I've seen some of those statements this weekend, and we're going to continue to be very clear. We believe they're wrong, we believe they're repugnant, and we believe they're disgraceful," Jean-Pierre said.
"Our condemnation belongs squarely with terrorists who have brutally murdered, raped, and kidnapped hundreds, hundreds of Israelis. There can be no equivocation about that. There are not two sides here. There are not two sides," she added.
What does Rashida Tlaib say in response to 700 dead Jews? "I grieve the Palestinian and Israeli lives lost yesterday, today, and every day."
No condemnation of Hamas, no disavowment of terrorism. Just a "day in the life" for this anti-semite!https://t.co/KTVI62z8L7

"I grieve the Palestinian and Israeli lives lost yesterday, today, and every day," Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashid Tlaib's statement read.
"As long as our country provides billions in unconditional funding to support the apartheid government, this heartbreaking cycle of violence will continue," she added.
Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Cori Bush (D-MO) offered similar support for Palestinians following the Hamas terror attacks.
President Joe Biden did not directly mention the Squad lawmakers but firmly opposed the work of Hamas and offered support to Israel.
The U.S. has moved some military assets closer to the area though Israel is currently operating alone in its terror response.
The days ahead could see an official attempt to oppose the anti-Israel words from the lawmakers who continue to portray Israel as the enemy after it endured a devastating terror attack.
