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."

De Blasio Encourages New Yorkers to Get Vaccinated in the Most 'Cringe Inducing' Way Possible

Government officials have been attempting to convince Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccines in a variety of ways, from Ohio doing million-dollar prizes to areas in New York and New Jersey offering free beer with the shot. Some states are also giving young people bonds to get inoculated. And then there’s New York City, where Mayor Bill de Blasio tried persuading residents in the most awkward way possible.

“I want you to look at these French fries and think about how great it is to get vaccinated,” said the Democrat, touting that Shake Shack is giving away vouchers to those who get the vaccine, as he chows down on a handful of fries.

 “There’s also a burger element to this…is it too early in the day to eat a burger? No? This could be breakfast?” he asked an aide before chomping down. "I want you to look at this and think about, again, some people love hamburgers, some don’t, I really want to respect all ways of life, but if this is appealing to you, think of this when you think of vaccination. Mmmm… vaccination. I’m getting a very good feeling about vaccination right this moment.”
