When Rashida Tlaib was confronted with a request for a comment about Hamas’s atrocities committed on women and children, she avoided the reporter and refused to answer the question. The Congresswoman from Michigan was asked to comment on the beheading and burning of innocent Jewish children, and she opted not to comment. Is there an option here? Children were beheaded in front of their parents or crowded into a room where burning tires were rolled in to burn them alive. Is there a question as to whether this is right or wrong? Is this a debatable question? Is this a situation you have to think about before commenting? If you answered yes, then that is a shame. There is something wrong with you as a human being.
It was embarrassing as an American to see a member of the House of Representatives cower and duck behind her staff members when the question was repeatedly asked of her. The wording changed, but the question remained the same. “Congresswoman Tlaib, is it wrong for innocent children to be beheaded by the terrorist group, Hamas?” No response. Not a word. Then, the elevator door closed, and the Congresswoman slipped out of view. The Congresswoman from Michigan, like her fellow members of the Squad, shares a dislike for America and Israel. It’s sad and makes you question why the Jewish community supports Democrats. It is a habit that must be broken.
Rashida Tlaib later Tweeted:
“I grieve the Palestinian and Israeli lives lost yesterday, today, and every day. I am determined as ever to fight for a just future where everyone can live in peace, without fear and with true freedom, equal rights, and human dignity. The path to that future must include lifting the blockade, ending the occupation, and dismantling the apartheid system that creates the suffocating, dehumanizing conditions that can lead to resistance. The failure to recognize the violent reality of living under siege, occupation, and apartheid makes no one safer. No person, no child anywhere should have to suffer or live in fear of violence. We cannot ignore the humanity in each other. As long as our country provides billions in unconditional funding to support the apartheid government, this heartbreaking cycle of violence will continue.”
Alexandria Cortez Tweeted:
“Today is devastating for all those seeking a lasting peace and respect for human rights in Israel and Palestine. I condemn Hamas’ attack in the strongest possible terms. No child and family should ever endure this kind of violence and fear, and this violence will not solve the ongoing oppression and occupation in the region. An immediate ceasefire and de-escalation is urgently needed to save lives.”
And, finally, from Cori Bush
“Our ultimate focus must be on a just and lasting peace that ensures safety for everyone in the region,” she said. “Violations of human rights do not justify more violations of human rights, and a military response will only exacerbate the suffering of Palestinians and Israelis alike.”
“As part of achieving a just and lasting peace, we must do our part to stop this violence and trauma by ending U.S. government support for Israeli military occupation and apartheid.”
These people on the Extreme Left are on the wrong side of this issue. They have chosen the side of evil and deserve the criticism they receive from the Right and the Left. Even the White House, which usually defers to no comment, condemned the Squad’s remarks. Will this be the event to break up the Squad? It at least puts them outside of human existence, and it is a very dark place.
