On Monday, a week after Hamas began indiscriminately firing rockets into Israel,(and in the process blowing up some of its own buildings), the leading Black Lives Matter organization declared its solidarity with Palestinians.

Hamas is the largest of several Palestinian militant Islamist groups, and is currently the ruling organization in the autonomous zone of Gaza. Under its charter, Hamas is committed to the destruction of Israel.

In a tweet, the group said, “Black Lives Matter stands in solidarity with Palestinians. We are a movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms and will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation. (always have. And always will be ). #freepalestine.”

That sentiment, not surprisingly, is shared by the newest member of “The Squad” in the House of Representatives, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO).

In a tweet, she compared the conflict in Gaza to the riots in Ferguson, Missouri.

“The fight for Black lives and the fight for Palestinian liberation are interconnected. We oppose our money going to fund militarized policing, occupation, and systems of violent oppression and trauma. We are anti-war. We are anti-occupation. And we are anti-apartheid. Period.”

During a speech on the House floor recently, Bush praised a Black Lives Matter activist who previously called for the death of police officers.

The New York Post reported that Bush sang the praises of Palestinian-American activist Bassem Masri, who, after the 2014 police shooting of Ferguson, Missouri, teenager Michael Brown Jr., videoed himself yelling at police officers outside the Ferguson Police Department as part of his protests.

“I’m praying for your death and your death and your death and your death,” he reportedly said in one video, according to the Post.

Apparently praying for death is not an unusual thing for Black Lives Matter activists and Palestinians.

You’ll probably never see this reported, but the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) regularly call Palestinian residents of buildings in Gaza to warn them before they bomb. The IDF gives them a chance to evacuate and save their lives.

In a video aired by Sky News, an IDF member is heard pleading with a Gazan man to evacuate a targeted building, saying he had a responsibility for children’s lives. The man responded, “If the children need to die then they’ll die.”

Here’s a portion of the transcript:

Gazan man: You want to bomb? Bomb whatever you want.
IDF: No, brother. We need to do everything we can so you don’t die.
Gazan man: We want to die.
IDF: But you have a responsibility for children’s lives.
Gazan man: If the children need to die then they’ll die.
IDF: God forbid. God forbid. What do you want? To die?
Gazan man: This is how we reveal your cruelty.

But remember, whatever you do, don’t say “ALL lives matter.”
