Democratic Rep. Ritchie Torres Hits Media Over Anti-Israel Bias

By    |   Sunday, 14 April 2024 10:09 AM EDT

Rep. Ritchie Torres slammed the media as engaging in anti-Israel bias, stating that many have "dismissed Iran's unprecedented attack on Israel as 'limited.'"

"Even though Iran literally fired hundreds of missiles — drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles — against civilian areas in Israel, attempting mass murder, many in the media have dismissed Iran’s unprecedented attack on Israel as 'limited,'" the Bronx Democrat posted on his personal account on X as Saturday night's attack unfolded. 

He added that "critics cannot help but downplay the actual wrongs against Israel and overplay the fictional wrongs by Israel."

Torres further pointed out that Israel, by pushing back against the shelling, "protected Al-Aqsa Mosque from destruction at the hands of Iran. 

"Are the Anti-Israel haters going to thank Israel for protecting one of the holiest sites in Islam? No," he posted. "Are the Anti-Israel haters going to condemn Iran for endangering one of the holiest sites in Islam? No. Selective outrage is their modus operandi."

Torres continued his statements Sunday morning, writing, "But for Israel, Iran would have murdered thousands of Israeli civilians and would have destroyed some of the holiest sites in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam." 

But, he wrote, "Is the UN Security Council going to condemn Iran for its flagrant war crimes? Don’t hold your breath."
