Ted Cruz Exposes How Unserious the Pro-Hamas Crowd Has Become

The pro-Hamas lobby in America continues to show how unserious it is with its antics. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) recently wrote a post on X featuring footage of anti-Israel activists protesting outside of his home.


Apparently, these individuals have been staging these demonstrations every week for six months, according to the senator.

For the past 6 months, anti-Israel protestors have come to my home just about every Sat morning at 7 am and most Fri nights until 10 or 11 pm.

They scream, disturb the peace & wake the neighbors.

No matter how much these antisemites cheer Hamas, I will stand with Israel.

The protesters stand outside of Cruz’s home holding signs and shouting vapid slogans about how Israel should stop defending itself against the terrorist group. Curiously, these displays have not motivated the senator to stop supporting the Jewish State.

Protesters have gathered to shout slogans outside Cruz’s home since February as outcry surrounding Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel mounted. The demonstrations came in response to Cruz’s staunch support of Israel during the war and as the Texas senator railed against “cultural Marxism” promoted in the classrooms of the nation’s elite universities.

“It doesn’t matter how long this anti-Israel, pro-terrorist harassment continues. Sen. Ted Cruz will continue to fight antisemitism and stand for Texas values. He’s proud to stand with Israel as the country fights to utterly eradicate Hamas for as long as it takes,” a Cruz spokesperson told Fox News Digital.

Photos and video show about a dozen protesters outside Cruz’s home Friday chanting and clapping while holding signs such as “Cease Fire Now," “No rest for the wicked, Ted” and “Israel bombs playgrounds.” The protesters were also seen ringing bells as they chanted and wore masks.  


Earlier this month, pro-Hamas agitators surrounded the White House after the news broke about the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) rescuing four hostages who had been kidnapped by the terrorist group. They did the same routine, shouting slogans and holding signs.

Hundreds of anti-Israel protesters are gathering in DC to “surround” the White House to protest Biden’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war.

The pro-Hamas lobby has even clashed with other progressives. In Philadelphia, they blocked a Pride Parade, which would be classified as homophobic and transphobic behavior if anyone else had done it.

Despite their antics, it seems clear the pro-Hamas crowd has had little or no success in turning the United States against Israel. The reason why is obvious: Their tactics are obnoxious and off-putting. Instead of engaging in reasonable debate, they are trying to bully people into turning on Israel.

If anything, their actions are annoying and, at times, dangerous. Several of these demonstrations have devolved into violence – especially against Jewish individuals, which definitely is not a good look.


This leads me to two conclusions: Either the pro-Hamas lobby is full of imbeciles who believe they can intimidate people into criticizing Israel, or they simply don’t care whether they are making a difference for their “cause.”

Perhaps it is both.

If they actually cared about the Palestinians the way they claim, they would adopt tactics that might actually be effective instead of engaging in behavior that turns people off. In the end, their methods add up to nothing more than empty virtue signaling aimed at making it appear as if they are fighting the good fight. Unfortunately for them, it has little chance of working.
