WATCH: Dr. Qanta Ahmed believes Rep. Omar is a disgrace to Islam
Over 700 rockets were fired into Israel over the weekend by Hamas, killing four Israelis and wounding dozens more.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) responded, not defending Israel, but attacking them and seemingly painting Hamas as just misunderstood ‘freedom fighters.’
From Daily Wire:
In response to a New York Times headline that stated that Palestinian terrorists had fired hundreds of rockets into Israel, Tlaib wrote on Twitter: “When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free? Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families. #FreePalestine”
But Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) took it a step further than that.
Omar took a more aggressive stance defending the terrorists, writing: “How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends? The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.”
People called her out both on her facts and on her meaning, many questioning what her definition of “real justice” was.
For a sample of the proper way to respond:
“Once again, Israel faces a barrage of deadly rocket attacks by terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad. We support Israel 100% in its defense of its citizens,” President Donald Trump said on Twitter Sunday. “To the Gazan people — these terrorist acts against Israel will bring you nothing but more misery. END the violence and work towards peace – it can happen!”
