Israel has been pounded by rockets from Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Four Israelis have been killed and thousands have been forced into bomb shelters, including young children.
These tragic events did not prevent the Jew-hating Rep. Rashida Tlaib from condemning the media’s coverage of the latest round of Palestinian terror against Israel. The mainstream media will only rarely expose (at least partially) Palestinian terror and barbarity that is often inflicted against innocent Israelis. However, Tlaib considers these rare occasions of such exposure to be dehumanizing to Palestinians.
These outrageous comments from Tlaib should not surprise anyone. Rep. Rashida Tlaib is a product of the Palestinian education system, despite being raised in the United States. Hatred of Jews and the dehumanization of Israelis is taught in Palestinian schools and mosques. Jihad terror against Israel is encouraged in most (if not all)segments of Palestinian society. Any condemnation of such terror is considered to be blasphemous.
Shame on Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats for legitimizing this pro-Jihad Jew-hater. #JEXODUS!
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 https://t.co/p3X3j8WtwM

Tlaib blasts coverage of Gaza attacks, calls to free Palestine, Israel National News, David Rosenberg, May 5, 2019:
Freshman Democrat Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib excoriated Israel and news coverage of the ongoing wave of rocket attacks on the Jewish state while calling to “Free Palestine” in a tweet Sunday.
Tlaib, who represents Michigan’s 13th district in the US House of Representatives, blasted coverage of ongoing rocket and missile attacks by Hamas and other Gaza-based terror groups on Israel, calling the news reports on the attacks “dehumanizing” to Palestinian Arabs.
“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,” Tlaib tweeted, adding “#FreePalestine.”
The comments came Sunday in response to a tweet by Yousef Munayyer, executive director of the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights.
Ilhan Omar And Rashida Tlaib Attack Israel, Defend Palestinian Terror Attacks, The Daily Wire, Ryan Saavedra:
Far-left Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked Israel on Sunday and defended the Palestinian terrorist attacks that targeted Israel over the weekend.
The Jerusalem Post reported that approximately 700 rockets were fired at Israel from Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip and that the Iron Dome intercepted approximately 173 of the rockets.
“Terror groups Hamas and Islamic jihad in Gaza have fired over 700 rockets at Israel since Friday, killing four Israelis and wounding dozens,” The Jerusalem Post reported, adding: “Defiant Hamas and Islamic Jihad officials said on Sunday that they don’t rule out the possibility that the current round of fighting in the Gaza Strip could lead to an all-out war with Israel.”
“The latest round of violence began two days ago when an Islamic Jihad sniper fired at Israeli troops, wounding two soldiers,” Reuters reported.
Omar and Tlaib, who are both well-documented anti-Semites, rushed to attack Israel and defended the terrorism that was being carried out against Israel.
