Thousands of Americans have died of the coronavirus. But ‘Gaza FirsterDemocrats dont care.

Eight Senate Democrats, including Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren, dispatched a four-page letterto Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, demanding to know what America was doing about the coronavirus.

Not in America. In Gaza.

According to the Senate letter, “as of March 24, the first two cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in the Gaza Strip.”

Thats two cases. Two. The United States has over 200,000 as of now.

By the time you read this, there will be many more.

Bernie and Leahys Vermont has 293 cases. But Sanders cares more about Gaza than Burlington. Warrens Massachusetts has 6,620 cases. Van Hollens Maryland has 1,660 cases. Udalls New Mexico has 315 cases. Thomas Carpers Delaware has 319 cases. Jeff Merkleys Oregon has 660 cases. Sherrod Browns Ohio has 2,199 cases.

None of these eight Democrats represent states that are free of the pandemic. All of them represent states that have far more severe coronavirus problems than the terrorist occupied West Bank or Gaza.

Unfortunately, theyre Gaza Firsters.

The Democrats whine that Gaza has a “weak public health system”. Maybe thats because Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group in charge of Gaza, has put its money into rockets, not health care.

Lefties love lecturing about how much health care a jet or tank could pay for. They can take their anti-war lecture tour to Gaza and explain to Hamas how many ventilators they could get for one missile.

But Bernie Sanders has repeatedly urged cutting off military aid to Israel, while pouring more money into Gaza. The lefty theme is, “No missiles for Israel, lots of missiles for the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The letter quotes an article claiming that in Gaza, “health ministry officials”whined “that just one person infected with the deadly virus would end in ‘complete disaster

The health ministry officials are Hamas terrorists. They’re just as illegitimate as officials of Al Qaeda or ISIS.

And the article is from March 9th.

There has been more than one person infected with the coronavirus in Gaza. And a month later, there’s no disaster.

Senate Democrats are searching for a coronavirus disaster in Gaza that isnt there while ignoring the one in their own states. This bizarrely treasonous Gaza Firsting is wildly irresponsible when the people who elected them are dying. And theyre demanding that we urgently focus on the Gazans who arent dying.

The eight Democrats complain that President Trump cut off aid to UNRWA. The reason we did that is because UNRWA’s employees in Gaza were Hamas members and the UN group’s facilities were used as staging grounds for terrorist attacks.

They demand that the State Department inform them of what steps President Trump is taking to “provide the Palestinian people with access to adequate medicine, medical equipment, personnel, and other resources to combat the threat of a major coronavirus health crisis?”

Here’s a thought.

Perhaps the United States government should make sure that every American health care worker has protective masks and gloves, and every coronavirus patient in this country has access to a ventilator, before anyone even thinks about sending a single piece of medical equipment to Gaza.

Just last week, Trump administration officials caught USAID officialsshipping the protective equipment they were trying to secure for American health care workers off to foreign countries. We’re already providing aid to close allies like Bangladesh, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and, Pakistan. Maybe we can hold off on shipping stuff to Hamas that we could use in the United States.

But its not just the eight Gaza Firsters in the United States Senate that are running the Gaza show.

Reps from the EU, the US, the UN, and Russia talked on the phone about theUN’s $2 billion coronavirus plan with a “focus on Gaza.”

Its a good thing that the EU, which has a horrific death rate in Italy and Spain, and Russia, which just shut down much of the country, and the UN, have nothing to worry about except the Hamas territory.

According to the Quartet article, there are nine casesin Gaza.
