Hussain Altamimi a staffer to progressive Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, called U.S. ally Israel, a “racist European ethnostate” on Instagram.
The post reads “This reveals the principle underpinning Israeli apartheid: It’s not about where you’re born. It’s about whether you’re Jewish or non-Jewish. Your ethnicity determines your rights & level in the racial hierarchy.”
“Israel is an exclusive ethnostate, established to serve one ethnic group at the expense of another,” the post adds.
According to Fox News, AOC’s office has declined to comment.
Several other progressive “squad” members, including Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar have taken heat for anti-Israel comments in the past many believe are anti-semitic.
This comes shortly after he posted a photo with AOC titled “new beginnings.”
