The weekend’s terror attack by Hamas against Israeli concert-goers, resulting in an estimated 800 deaths and an unknown number of abductions, has sparked much political discourse.
The majority of this discourse has supported the interests of 10 million Israelis, while a minority has advocated for Palestinians civilians. It is reported that some members of the attacking party breached Israeli border security via motorized paragliders.
Today, BLM Chicago posted an image on Twitter expressing their support for the terrorist organization behind this ongoing attack which targeted civilians
Billionaire owner of X Elon Musk, formerly known as Twitter, even chimed in to say “your position is clear.”
Your position is clear

Journalist Julia Ioffe posed a serious question to BLM Chicago, inquiring whether they were advocating killing police officers and raping their families in light of their support for the terrorists and reposting of comments suggesting genocide against Palestinians.
No other political group or prominent politician endorsed the Hamas terror attack. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib released a statement that recognized Palestinian suffering while expressing sympathy for the victims of the attack.
Joe Biden described it as an “act of sheer evil” in his speech, and President Trump argued that these attacks would not have occurred if he had not been forced out of office, adding that the billions Biden gave to Iran may have helped finance them.
The Black Lives Matter organization, founded by Marxist Patrisse Cullors, has received significant financial support from American corporations such as McDonalds, Allstate, Quaker Oats, Gatorade and Grubhub among others.
Other groups and individuals have taken pro-Hamas stands after the weekend’s terror attacks. Porn star Mia Khalifa was fired from Playboy and other porn outlets after celebrating and promoting the Hamas attacks.
Other celebrities are receiving online criticism for supporting Israel and some for not expressing support for the Palestinians.
Kylie Jenner was recently criticized for supporting Israel while not inspiring confidence that she knew many details about the long-standing conflict and after losing a reported 1 million followers after expressing her support for the Jewish state.
