It is perhaps one of the strangest political alliances in existence today - The political left's infatuation with Muslim extremism and supporting Islamic causes, despite the fact that the majority of leftists would likely be imprisoned or worse in Islamic countries for their beliefs.
Regardless of a person's position on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, it cannot be denied that Muslim culture is inherently hostile to progressive concepts like women's rights, gay rights, diversity and inclusion, sexual revolution, etc. Opposition to trans ideology in particular is one of the few areas, in fact, where orthodox Muslims and conservatives in the US tend to find common ground. In other words, Muslims have little or nothing in common with the political left in the west.
Where the movements seem to intersect is up for debate, but it is clear that leftist activists are quick to jump on any opportunity to provoke violent deconstruction. The past couple days have given rise to a series of leftist rallies, mostly in blue enclaves and university environments, all across the US. People bearing rainbow flags and Palestinian flags are calling for "one solution" - A violent intifada.

“There is only one solution. Intifada Revolution.”
It’s insane how many college students are waving Palestinian flags while calling for genocide against Jews.
The rallies all appear to be tied to far-left groups from Antifa to LGBT groups.

From Portland, Orgeon...
Portland Antifa members are among those who joined the Palestine direct action in downtown coinciding with the Hamas call to action. The rally was organized by SUPER, a @Portland_State student group that posted in support of the antisemitic terror group. pic.twitter.com/VEY11w9kxp— Andy Ngô 🏳️🌈 (@MrAndyNgo) October 14, 2023
...to New York.
"There is only one solution, INTIFADA Revolution!" A call for more killing of Jews in Times Square by the crowd led by Students for Justice in Palestine activist Naya Idriss. This misnomer of "Justice" is now what passes for morality, not just by Hamas, but in NYC.… pic.twitter.com/2R6d471RZ8— Canary Mission (@canarymission) October 10, 2023
Even BLM wants in on the Intifada...
How leftist activists plan to reconcile their support of Islamic extremism with their own ideological taboos remains to be seen. Furthermore, with the majority of Democrat politicians including Biden publicly in favor of Israel, one wonders if there will be a considerable split in the Democrat party if the conflict continues to escalate beyond the borders of Gaza.
