One City Rising Stands with Israel Against Hamas

One City Rising is horrified by the Hamas massacre of innocent civilians, the worst murder of Jews since the Holocaust. We mourn the victims of Hamas, including innocent Palestinians who are being used as human shields in Hamas’s cowardly war against the Jewish people and the State of Israel. We stand firmly with Israel in their fight against this antisemitic and hateful terrorist organization and support all efforts to free hostages being held by Hamas in Gaza. OCR is committed to driving out all forms of hate, fascism and radical ideologies that have infested New York and much of the world.

Rising antisemitism has brought into sharp focus just how much evil has been allowed to grow and fester in this country, and around the world. The timing of the attack, and the heinous response from the New York Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which promoted a rally in support of the attack just the day after it occurred, and continues to promote antisemitic rallies against Israel, along with its lockstep partner, The Working Families Party (WFP), has brought into sharp focus how much OCR is needed at this moment to bring people together on common ground, so that we can move forward peacefully.
