A Christmas dose of propaganda poison

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

Ocasio-Cortez shared a 'Christmas'

message in which she compared

Jesus to Gazans. Reinventing history

she likened Jesus’ persecutors to

present-day Israel. In her Instagram

post on Sunday she purported fake

news/lies, that Jesus was born in

“modern-day Palestine” under a

government carrying out “a massacre

of innocents.” According to the New

Testament, Jesus was a Jew who lived

within the modern borders of Israel and

was killed by the Roman forces ruling the

territory at the time.


US Representative Ritchie Torres, a New York Democrat and vocal advocate for Israel, criticizes comparisons between Jesus and the Palestinians in a post that doesn’t directly mention Ocasio-Cortez. “It is antisemitic to compare Israelis to the Romans who murdered Jesus. Associating Jews with the murder of Jesus is antisemitism,” Torres writes on X."
