Former Miss Israel calls out BLM for response to Hamas terror attacks
Black Lives Matter has been criticised by former Miss Israel Yityish Aynaw after the organization’s response to the Hamas terror attack.
Speaking on Instagram, Ms Aynaw said: “I am so shocked by the response of Black Lives Matter regarding the terror attacks here in Israel.
“I remember you screaming in the streets, ‘I can’t breathe’. I want to inform you right now… [it’s Israelis] who cannot breathe.
“So I want to inform you that right now there are Israeli hostages in Gaza. Babies, children, mothers, women. Entire families who cannot breathe. They were kidnapped, raped, by the terror organization Hamas.
“Do you think killing is enough for them? They attacked people at a party near to the Gaza Strip.”
Hamas terrorists invaded Israel on October 7 and killed 1,300 civilians. They also took 199 hostages back to Gaza.
Ms Aynaw’s comments came after the Chicago Black Lives Matter organization posted a since-deleted graphic seemingly celebrating Hamas’ slaughter of Israelis.
US President Joe Biden has vowed to help the Israelis bring hostages home.
A State Department spokesperson told Fox News Digital: “We extend our deepest condolences to the victims and to the families of all those affected. At this time, we are also aware of 13 American nationals who are unaccounted for.
“State Department personnel have been in contact with their families. The U.S. government is working around the clock to determine their whereabouts and is working with the Israeli government on every aspect of the hostage crisis, including sharing intelligence and deploying experts from across the United States government to advise the Israeli government on hostage recovery efforts.”
Ms Aynaw also compared Hamas’ violence to that of ISIS in Syria.
She said: “Hamas is ISIS. Pray for us. Pray for Israel because we can’t breathe.”
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said in a post on X: “Hamas brought ISIS flags to massacre Israeli children, women and men.”
