Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked Ron DeSantis this week after the Florida governor claimed that everybody from Gaza was anti-Semitic, RadarOnline.com can report.

In the latest development to come after the Palestinian militant group Hamas launched an attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip on October 7, DeSantis argued against letting Gazan refugees into the United States.

DeSantis claimed that all Gazans are anti-Semitic during a campaign speech in Iowa on Saurday.

“I don’t know what Biden’s going to do, but we cannot accept people from Gaza into this country as refugees,” DeSantis said in Iowa on Saturday. “I am not going to do that.”

“If you look at how they behave, not all of them are Hamas, but they are all anti-Semitic,” he added. “None of them believe in Israel’s right to exist.”

The Florida governor and 2024 GOP presidential candidate came under fire for his surprising remarks, and AOC criticized DeSantis on Monday night during an interview on CNN NewsNight with host Abby Phillip.

“I think there’s something to be said about the region’s partners being able to support and step-up Palestinians,” AOC started. “However, that does not abdicate the United States from our historic role that we’ve played in the world of accepting refugees and allowing people to restart their lives here.

AOC slammed the Florida governor's remarks as "destructive and dangerous."

“And I also want to address something very specific about what Governor DeSantis said when he said quote, unquote, all Gazans are anti-Semitic – how incredibly destructive and dangerous that rhetoric is,” the Democratic House Rep. continued. “We just had a six-year-old boy stabbed 26 times this morning because of rhetoric like that and it is dangerous.”

“It is unacceptable,” she continued. “It is reckless. And no leader in the United States of America should be amplifying a message like that.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Hamas launched an attack against Israel from Gaza last weekend that left at least 30 Americans and more than 1,000 Israelis dead.

President Joe Biden has since condemned the attack and emphasized that the U.S. “stands with Israel” amid the escalating war against Hamas.

President Joe Biden will visit Israel on Wednesday.

"The more we learn about the attack, the more horrifying it becomes,” Biden said during a speech on October 13. “More than 1,000 innocent lives lost, including at least 27 Americans."

"These guys make Al Qaeda look pure. They're pure evil,” he continued. "As I said from the beginning, the United States, make no mistake about it, stands with Israel."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to "settle the score" with Hamas after last weekend's attack.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also vowed to “settle the score” with Hamas after the terrorist group killed at least 1,400 people and took hundreds more captive.

“I tell Hamas, you are responsible for the wellbeing of captives, Israel will settle the score with anyone who harms them,” Netanyahu said.

“What happened today has never been seen in Israel,” he continued. “We will take mighty vengeance for this black day.”
