Why are Democratic members of Congress parroting terrorist talking points?
By: Kaylee McGhee White | The Washington Examiner | May 14, 2021:
People who do not understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the nature of the Middle East should not attempt to weigh in on these issues. That includes members of Congress.
It is very clear that several elected Democrats, many of whom just so happen to be among the loudest voices on this issue, have no idea what they’re talking about when it comes to the present conflict between Israel and Gaza. It’s either that, or they are intentionally parroting terrorist talking points.
Take, for example, Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar:
Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism.
Palestinians deserve protection.
Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don’t exist to protect Palestinian civilians.
It’s unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid. https://t.co/vWWQfMqBkT

Omar is more or less shilling for Hamas, the terrorist organization that began the current conflagration by launching rockets indiscriminately at Israeli cities from Gaza. When the rockets started pouring over the border, Israel defended itself with the Iron Dome missile defense system, which protects thousands of Israeli and Palestinian lives. Omar would like to see that defense system defunded — and so would Hamas. It would make it a lot easier to reach their goal of killing as many Jews as possible and using terror and violence to achieve their political ends.Unlike Hamas, Israel does not target civilians, Omar’s ignorant comments notwithstanding. But Hamas is well known for intentionally putting civilians inside buildings and on the site of military targets that they expect the Israeli military to bomb. That way, they can blame Israel for civilian deaths. On top of that, 30% of the rockets Hamas fires at Israel end up landing on Palestinians instead. Does Omar not care about those Palestinian lives?
Then there’s Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who came out in support of Hamas’s ultimate goal: the extinction of Israel.
The Nakba never ended. From Jaffa in 1948 to Sheikh Jarrah, Jerusalem today, we must recognize the forced displacement and violent dispossession faced by Palestinians for over 70 years. https://t.co/oWOZhBFThD

Tlaib is referring here to the creation of Israel in 1948, when Britain withdrew from the region and gave land to the first Jewish state. Tlaib’s proposed solution would be to take all of that land back from Israel and give it to a new state of Palestine. In other words, she, like Hamas, would like to see Israel wiped off the map.
One might be inclined to give Omar and Tlaib the benefit of the doubt and assume that they are ignorant of what’s really happening in Israel and Gaza. After all, it’s a complicated and long-running conflict. But these are the congresswomen who openly support the boycott, divest, and sanctions movement and regularly peddle in anti-Semitic tropes. And now they’re acting like the public relations firm for a terrorist organization that would love nothing more than a second Holocaust.
