    Hatred for Israel is fueled by lies and conspiracy theories, which spread like wildfire over social media. And some of the chief arsonists are sitting members of Congress.

    Consider the past week, during which Reps. Jamaal Bowman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Mark Pocan, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and André Carson all perpetuated dangerous misinformation about the current round of violence between Israelis and Palestinians. Together, they asserted that Israel attempted to seize control of a sacred Muslim site and is attacking Palestinians for no justifiable reason. These claims create a false narrative that defends Hamas’s rocket fire from Gaza while excusing Palestinian rioting in East Jerusalem.

    The point of such inflammatory and demonstrably disprovable rhetoric isn’t to call attention to injustice or speak truth to power. Rather, the goal is to poison public opinion of the Jewish state, the practical effect of which endangers and stokes hatred against Jews.

    Indeed, on Monday, Omar, Tlaib and Carson released statement suggesting that Israel instigated the violence by assaulting Al-Aqsa, a Muslim holy site, during Ramadan. But the proximate cause for what we’ve witnessed in East Jerusalem was actually last month. Palestinian state media began broadcastingvicious messages inciting violence, and Palestinian youth started attacking unsuspecting Jews, filming their exploits and posting them to social media.
