Democratic divide over Israel on full display as Jewish state clashes with Hamas terrorists                    Democrats divided over Israel as key U.S. ally on brink of war
Escalating violence between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas has cast a spotlight on deepening Democratic divisions over the Jewish state. 

The party split played out in full view on social media this week after Hamas launched indiscriminate rocket attacks at Israel, which responded with airstrikes on Hamas targets in Gaza, reportedly killing some civilians. Israel is also dealing with domestic unrest from Arab rioters.  

International observers are concerned about the possibility of "full-scale war."

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party -- which controls the White House and both congressional chambers -- is divided in its support for a key American ally. 

President Biden and the Democratic old guard have voiced support for Israel's right to defend itself from Hamas' rocket attacks. 

Secretary of State Antony Blinken noted Thursday that there are "fundamental differences between a terrorist organization, Hamas, that is indiscriminately raining down rockets -- in fact, targeting civilians -- and Israel's response defending itself, that is targeting the terrorists." Biden similarly said that Israel "has a right to defend itself."
