Youthful ignorance about more than economics

Palestinians border fence protestThe leader of a Messianic Jewish ministry says it's not surprising that a self-described Democratic socialist, and now a darling of the Democrats, is a vocal critic of Israel.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (pictured below) became an overnight star after her stunning primary victory over 10-term Democrat incumbent Joe Crowley in New York's 14th Congressional District.

While her socialist platform includes lots of "free" services for Americans, such as Medicare-for-all and free college tuition, Ocasio-Cortez has also criticized Israel. She called it a "massacre" after approximately 62 Palestinians were killed by Israeli troops in May during clashes at the Gaza security fence.

Yet it was disclosed by none other than Hamas that 50 of those killed were members of its own militant group, not civilians. 

Alexandria Ocasio-CortezJan Markell, founder of Olive Tree Ministries, says Ocasio-Cortez has been "indoctrinated" by the current education system to side with the Palestinians.

"It's very difficult," Markell tells OneNewsNow, "to get the under-40 population to anything that is Israel-focused because they have been indoctrinated, wherever they go, that Israel is the bully, that Israel is Apartheid, and the Palestinians need all our sympathy, which all of that would be lies but that's what they've been taught."

Markell also warns that Ocasio-Cortez typifies the warning of Zachariah 12:3, the Old Testament passage that warns the nations will eventually turn against Israel.

"That means most people, in most nations, including America," Markell cautions. "And I think the thing that will lead that in America number one will be Democrats, but number two will be the younger people."
