A New York City protest in support of the Hamas invasion and terrorist attacks that left hundreds of Israelis dead was backed by the Squad's socialist political party.

The Democratic Socialists of America supported the rally on Sunday. The New York branch of the group said it stands in "solidarity with the Palestinian people and their right to resist." Members of the group include Democratic congresswomen and "Squad" members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Cori Bush (Mo.), and Ilhan Omar (Minn.)

Reps. Jamaal Bowman (N.Y.) and Greg Casar (Texas) are also members of the DSA, and both Bowman and Ocasio-Cortez are part of the New York chapter that helped organize the event.

The "All Out for Palestine" rally, attended by several hundred people, featured people mocking the slain Israelis and taunting pro-Israel protesters.

"Smash the settler Zionist state," one chant said, according to the Times of Israel. Some people made mocking crying faces toward counter-protesters. People screamed "700," the Israeli death toll at the time.

Protesters even taunted Israel supporters with a photo of hostages, the Times of Israel reported:

One man held up a picture of an Israeli hostage on his phone and waved it at the Israeli crowd. Another was seen brandishing an image of a swastika. Some taunted the Israelis while tearing up and stomping on an Israeli flag, or danced with a Palestinian flag.

"The oppressed people of Palestine broke out of the open-air prison," one speaker told the crowd, to cheers. "The White House is telling all of its mouthpieces to tell us a false story, but we know that the real terrorist is the Israeli state."

The Israeli crowd chanted "Terrorists," "Murderers," "Shame on you," and "Bring them home," referring to the dozens of hostages taken by the Gaza terrorists.

The protest was just one of many pro-Palestinian terrorist rallies across the world following the deadly attacks.
