Boston City Councilor Sparks Outrage by Describing Hamas Terror Attack on Israel as a ‘Military Operation’
“Fernandes Anderson, the first Muslim ever elected to the Boston City Council, covered her face as she wept during the meeting.”
This week, the city council in Boston tried to pass a resolution supporting Israel, but far left members of the body objected. One member named Tania Fernandes Anderson offered her own resolution, which downplayed the horrific acts committed by Hamas and called for a cease fire.
Even other Democrats were stunned by this, noting that Hamas carried out the worst act of terror against the Jewish people since the Holocaust.

Boston city councilor’s description of Hamas attack as ‘massive military operation’ sparks outrage
A Boston city councilor’s description of the Hamas terrorist organization as a “militant group” and characterization of the attack that killed over 1,400 Israelis, among them women, children and babies, as a “military operation” has sparked outrage at City Hall.
The resolution filed by Councilor Tania Fernandes Anderson calling for de-escalation and a cease-fire in Israel and “occupied Palestine” was introduced at a Wednesday City Council meeting in response to one filed earlier in the week by Councilor Michael Flaherty, who wanted to condemn “Hamas and their brutal terrorist acts against Israel.”
“To call them a militant group that launched a massive military operation is completely absurd and disgusting,” Flaherty told the Herald. “That wasn’t a military operation. That was a terrorist attack — and it was the worst barbaric aggression towards innocent Jewish people since the Holocaust.”…
Councilor Frank Baker also slammed his colleague’s portrayal of Hamas as a “Palestinian militant group” that “launched a massive military operation,” saying he was “at a loss for words” after reading Fernandes Anderson’s resolution.

Democrats have normalized the radical wing of their party and when these people speak, they reveal how completely insane their world view is, horrifying even liberals.
David Strom of Hot Air describes the impossible position Democrats have put themselves in:
For years we have heard Leftists chant “By any means necessary,” and for some reason, people didn’t believe they meant it even after the George Floyd riots in 2020. The takeover of city centers like the CHAZ/CHOP zone, the “defund the police extremists,” and the shouts of “No justice no peace” were ignored, despite the obvious sincerity. In fact, Democrats around the country embraced the riots, and Nancy Pelosi openly wondered why more didn’t happen.
Now you have elected officials, academics, and massive groups of students out there chanting their support for Hamas terrorists, and even threatening their fellow Democrats. The extremists have come out to play, and Democrat leaders are caught between a rock and a hard place. They don’t want to embrace the terrorists, but don’t want to denounce a substantial portion of their base.
This report from WCVB News in Boston is all about the feels:
Israel-Hamas war sparks emotional debate within Boston City Council
A pro-Israel resolution brought up during Wednesday’s Boston City Council meeting amid Israel’s war with Hamas led to an emotional debate among the council’s members that brought one councilor to tears…
Fernandes Anderson, the first Muslim ever elected to the Boston City Council, covered her face as she wept during the meeting. She called for the return of the hostages taken by Hamas, but also for an immediate ceasefire by both sides.
In other words, this city councilor is taking the exact same position as the members of the Squad.
Who could have predicted such a thing?
