Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez expressed her desire to place conditions on U.S. aid to Israel due to the “morally untenable” situation in Gaza.

She highlighted concerns about providing unconditional aid to the Israeli government and emphasized the need for humanitarian aid, stating that there are growing trepidations among members about voting for aid packages without such conditions.

“Quickly, in the last 20 seconds, I know that you are a no on the supplemental for Israel, barring some strings attacks on that aid. You said that we are seeing a Gaza slaughter in Gaza. How many Democrats are in the position with you? Is there a rough count, of how many nos there are in the caucus?” Chris Hayes asked.

“What I will say is that the grassroots activism around a bilateral ceasefire is working,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

She also mentioned the Leahy laws, which prevent U.S. aid from funding gross human rights violations, as a reference for her position.

“There are far more members and perhaps maybe publicly visible that have a lot of trepidation around voting for an aid package that contains, no humanitarian aid. I think we are crossing a rubicon here on no holds barred, completely unconditional aid to the Israeli government,” she said.

“We have Leahy laws on the books that prevent U.S. aid from funding gross human rights violations. We are seeing a level of depravity in Gaza that is becoming morally untenable to support,” she said.
