As the death toll rises, following the unprovoked attack on Israel by the Hamas terror organization and Palestinians in the Middle East, the reaction of old, which would have condemned terror and the slaughter of innocent civilians, is no more! In fact, NOT A SINGLE DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE CONDEMNED THE TERROR ATTACKS AGAINST ISRAEL! Now, House Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and her anti-Israeli Party have chosen not only refuse to condemn the terrorist attack on Israel, but Tlaib is saying that Israel had it coming!

In fact, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) sent out a tweet on Sunday, attacking the nation of Israel, even as the Palestinian terrorists were firing hundreds of rockets into Israeli population centers, leading to the death of innocent civilians, and even a pregnant Muslim woman!
Tlaib comments were in response to an anti-Israel activist Yousef Munayyer, who expressed his anger that the New York Times headline read…
“Gaza Militants Fire 250 Rockets, and Israel Responds with Airstrikes.”
Howevever, even the New York Times passively supported the terror attacks, as they refused to call the evil-doers by the name that they truly are…TERRORISTS! After all, you CANNOT intentionally launch weapons into large crowds of civilians intentionally, and then hide amongst the Palestinian civilian population to avoid reprisals and NOT BE CALLED TERRORISTS!
Regardless, the Times, along with the rest of the mainstream media prefers to avoid calling any Muslim a terrorist, for fear of being labeled Islamaphobic, or because it is a political means to an end!
UPI reported that some were saying that Israel started it when Palestinian protesters were shot by Israeli border police in last year. However, that is not the the entire story, as it became apparent that the so-called Israeli attack on the border was due to the Palestinian terror group named Hamas, having lined up women, children, and innocent babies in front of the Israeli Defense Forces, and then using the innocents as shields against Israeli defenses, as they launched an assault on Israel’s border. In fact, behind those human shields, Hamas terrorist soldiers were equipped with guns, catapults, and other military equipment designed to kill as many Israeli’s as possible and inflict mass casualties. Meanwhile, Hamas had other intentions for those human shields as well… Martyrs and Propaganda. They immediately took photos of the women and children who were shot as they advanced on Israeli borders, leaving the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) no option, other than defending their border and protecting their people.
Breitbart News reported that, according to the United Nations, previous “protests” have been organized by the Hamas terror group, in which they point out, Hamas violently suppresses actual protests against its own ruthless rule in Gaza, while inciting violence against Israel itself!
Fortunately for Israel, the tiny nation located smack dab in the center of the Middle East, they had just installed an anti-rocket defense system called the “Iron Dome” anti-missile system. Unfortunately, amongst the barrage of 600 missiles launched at civilian sites, the anti-missile system was unable to stop every rocket, resulting in some casualties and a number of injuries!
Still, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) blamed the Israeli’s and the world, for the terror attack launched against them, which has KILLING ISRAELI CIVILIANS! In fact, Tlaib says that the attack is justified because Israel and the non-Muslim world is “dehumanizing” Palestinians! Tlaib said…
Ironically, when Tlaib says “When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free,” it was my understanding that Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) was in the United States Congress to represent the people of Michigan and the United States, not the Palestinian people in the Middle East!
She also attacks the New York Times by stating “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,” But, her statement ignores the facts of the truth in Israel and Palestine! In fact, the Palestinian people are free in regards to Israel! In fact, the only oppression that they are under is from the Iranian backed Hamas terror group who lines up innocent civilians as human shields to protect their terrorists, NOT THE ISRAELI’S!
Finally, Tlaib ended her tweet with “#FreePalestine,” which is a slogan usually used in connection with the destruction of Israel. However, Tlaib has made it apparent by her own actions and ambitions, that her agenda includes the destruction of Isreal and the Jewish people, which makes her, as an American lawmaker, MUCH MORE DANGEROUS THAN FOREIGN TERRORISTS!
Today, it appears that the Palestinian terrorists had hoped that either the barrage of missiles would overwhelm the Israeli Iron Dome defense shield, or it was a test of their new system, or possibly both! Regardless of their motives, the Palestinians have a long history of using civilians as human shields, building bombs in civilian apartment buildings, as to prevent Israel from attacking terrorists, and using children as human bombs, designed to commit suicide while taking as many Israeli and non-Muslim lives as possible! Meanwhile, Israel has limited its attacks to terror targets and militants who strive to do harm to Israel and the Israeli people!
Today, we know that the Palestinian’s military wing known as HAMAS has been labeled a terrorist organization by both the United States and the United Nations, and closely connected to the radical anti-Christian and terrorist organization known as the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact, HAMAS was founded in 1987 as an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s Co-founder, Sheik Ahmed Yassin stated in 1987 that HAMAS was established to take the land from Israel and establish an Islamic State in the West Bank and Gaza Strip areas. HAMAS followed through and launched full and brutal attacks against Israeli citizens while making unreasonable demands that they knew the Israeli’s could never accept. They demanded that Israel allow Palestinians and their descendants into Israel, handing over the Gaza Strip, and West Bank, but refusing to allow Israel to be acknowledged as its own country. Over the years Hamas and other Palestinian organizations called for ‘death to Israel’, and ‘death to the United States’. Over the years, Hamas has launched all-out attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers, while declaring the attacks as retaliatory. They have used suicide bombers and launched explosive rockets towards heavily populated civilian targets. The attacks have been condemned as ‘crimes against humanity, and war crimes by Human Rights Watch and other human rights groups.
As far as the Palestinians history, it is relatively unknown. However, the origins of the word Palestine is thought to have originated from the Egyptian and Hebrew word ‘peleshet’, which means migratory or rolling. Many believe that the Palestinians originally came from land to the northeast of Egypt. The Jewish Virtual Library points out that…
“A derivitave of the namePalestinefirst appears in Greek literature in the 5th Century BCE when the historian Herodotus called the areaPalaistin?(Greek – Παλαιστ?νη). In the 2nd century CE, the Romans crushed the revolt of Shimon Bar Kokhba (132 CE), during which Jerusalemand Judea were regained and the area of Judea was renamed Palaestina in an attempt to minimize Jewish identification with the land of Israel.”
The term Palestine was used as a general term to describe the land of Syria during the Ottoman Empire’s reign, but most Arabs and Ottoman’s referred the area around Israel as Southern Syria, and not Palestine.
In 1917, Britain issued the “Balfour Declaration,” which declared its intent to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine. It was opposed by Arab states but was authorized in 1922 by the League of Nations. However, due to Arab opposition to the establishment of a Jewish State, the British continued to rule Palestine throughout the 1930s. Due to World War II and the extermination of Jews during the Holocaust, Jews began to immigrate to Palestine. The British tried to limit immigration, but it was to no avail. After the Jewish Holocaust in Germany, the International world re-established the state of Israel on May 14, 1948. It was the first time a Jewish state returned to the region in more than 2,000 years. The History Channel cited that…
In an afternoon ceremony at the Tel Aviv Art Museum, Ben-Gurion pronounced the words “We hereby proclaim the establishment of the Jewish state in Palestine, to be called Israel,” prompting applause and tears from the crowd gathered at the museum. Ben-Gurion became Israel’s first premier.
At the end of World War II, in 1945, the United States befriended the people of Israel. Britain was unable to come up with a practical solution, so they referred the problem to the United Nations, which in November 1947 voted to partition Palestine. That brought about the State of Israel and Palestine. Once the British withdrew from Palestine, the immediate reaction from the Arabs, involved Egypt launching an air assault against the newly re-established nation, and Arabs continued to launch strikes against the State of Israel. Soon after, Arab forces from Trans-Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq joined the Egyptian fighters against Israel. The Israelis were not well equipped to defend against the Arab assaults, but they were still victorious in not only defending Israel, but they even gained key territories such as Galilee, the Palestinian coast, and the territory connecting the coastal regions with Western Jerusalem. Finally, in 1949 the United Nations was able to broker a cease-fire, and Israel was able to gain permanent control of their territory. However, the Arabs continued over the years to fight with Israel, and in 1967, during the ‘Six Day War’ against Israel, the Arabs continued to lose territory. In fact, Israel gained land from Jordan, Egypt, and Syria. Territory that included Jerusalem, the Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Golan Heights. Finally, in 1979, Egypt signed a peace agreement with Israel. In exchange, Israel returned the Sinai to the Egyptians. Israel signed a Peace Accord with the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1993. The Israelis’ agreed to the Palestinian vision of a
“gradual implementation of Palestinian self-government in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.”
However, not only did the peace process move at a snail’s pace, but the ‘Palestinian Liberation Organization’, also known as the (P.L.O.) took up launching terrorist assaults against the Israeli people. Terror attacks that continue to threaten the people of Israel even today. Regardless of the assaults being waged against Israel, western Mainstream Media attacked Israel as the cause and sided with the Arabs. Also, Western Mainstream Media took the side of the Arabs, like the ones living within the mandate of Palestine, and not the Israelis’. In fact, it was in recent years, that the Mainstream Media began calling the Arabs that resided within the West Bank and Gaza Strip ‘Palestinians’.
The Palestinian Arabs, as they came to be known by, struggled in fighting against the Israelis. Much due to the fact that the Israeli’s had become militarily well-equipped, with virtually impenetrable borders, and incredibly advanced military technology. As a result of the Palestinian’s inability to run the Israeli’s out of the region, the Muslim Brotherhood created a militia wing to eradicate the Israeli’s from the region. It was HAMAS, and their ruthless attacks could be seen around the globe on television as innocent Israeli civilians were slaughtered, carried off on stretchers due to HAMAS suicide bombers. Below is a list of suicide attacks by Hamas and Palestinians, and Israeli deaths, where HAMAS claimed responsibility.
Regardless of the evidence of hatred and death perpetrated by the Palestinians and their Hamas organization, the Western Mainstream Media and One-World Government Elitists try to claim the casualty numbers and terror attacks as the fault of Israel, simply for their belief in their right to exist.
Just this past week, when President Trump followed through with Congress’ ‘Jerusalem Act of 1995’ promise to relocate the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Congressional Democrats of today, and Mainstream Media attack President Trump, and blame Israel and Trump for the deaths of Hamas terrorists and Palestinian martyr’s. For example, the Washington Post ran an article titled…
“Israelis kill more than 50 Palestinians in Gaza protests, health officials say.”
The Washington Post failed to disclose who the ‘Health Officials’ actually were. In fact, they were the Palestinian Health Ministry, who are controlled by the same HAMAS terrorist organization that organized the riots and caused the slaughter of Palestinians. Furthermore, the Palestinian Health Ministry reported that…
“more than 2,700 people were injured … including 1,359 from live ammunition,” and went on to say that “The dead included six children under the age of 18, among them a 15-year-old girl and a medic, the ministry said.”
Interestingly, the Washington Post failed to fact-check the casualty numbers, and HAMAS, and their “Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza” tends to inflate casualty numbers. Later, the leaders of Gaza said that there were 58 people killed in the clashes, but 50 of the dead Palestinians were actually Hamas terror operatives.
Also, the Washington Post article portrays the “protests” as attended by “many” who came to protest “peacefully.” They said…
Tens of thousands of Palestinians had gathered on the edges of the fenced-off and blockaded territory from midmorning. Many came to peacefully demonstrate, bringing their children and carrying flags. Food stalls sold snacks and music blared.
However, the Post left out major facts like how HAMAS was behind the so-called Protests, and how they placed women and children in front of armed soldiers to rush and penetrate Israeli borders. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu stated…
“They’re pushing civilians, women, children, into the line of fire with the view of getting casualties. We try to minimize casualties. They’re trying to incur casualties in order to put pressure on Israel, which is horrible.”
Bibi Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister
The Mainstream Media painted the assault as ‘Peaceful Demonstrations’, regardless of the fact that it was an attack, and propaganda piece for the ruthless ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ tied, HAMAS terror organization. The Mainstream Media showed pictures meant to cause outrage, words to depict a ‘false narrative’, and pit the world against the Israeli people. In the end, the Mainstream Media became simply another arm of the Muslim Brotherhood’s propaganda ministry.
However, buried deep within the article, the Washington Post went on to say that…
“the protests appeared to have a more violent edge than in previous weeks. Some young men brought knives and fence cutters.”
You had to read down 23 paragraphs into the article, and read it in its entirety, which many fail to do, it contradicts the title’s own claims. It reports that the armed rioters boasted about their desire to ‘Kill Jews’, and they admit their intentions to penetrate the Israeli border. When asked what one rioter would do when he got inside, he said…
“We are excited to storm and get inside,” and said that they would do “Whatever is possible to kill.”
Towards the end of the Washington Post article, they also cited that the…
“The vast majority of demonstrators were unarmed, but near a parking area, a man pulled out an AK-47 and took aim at an Israeli drone dropping leaflets. He let off a stream of bullets into the air and brought it down. Later, more gunfire was heard as Palestinian factions argued over who would keep the downed drone, onlookers said.
The Post did not make it clear how they knew that the ‘vast majority of demonstrators’ were unarmed, or why it didn’t fact check the HAMAS obtained propaganda. Within hours of the Washington Post article, a video surfaced that showed Palestinians attacking Israeli borders using a catapult. Therefore, making it more difficult to defend the claim that the Palestinian’s were simply peaceful protesters, instead of militants.
Also, the Washington Post reported that the Hamas organizers may have deceptively sent rioters toward Israeli soldiers using false information. In fact, they said…
At a gathering point east of Gaza City, organizers urged protesters over loudspeakers to burst through the fence, telling them Israeli soldiers were fleeing their positions, even as they were reinforcing them.
Therefore, as the Washington Post and other Mainstream Media sites post articles that go un-vetted, and un-checked for fact or fiction, Israel and innocents around the globe suffer the consequences. In fact, the Mainstream Media, Progressive-Socialist Elitists, Fabian-Economic Socialist Privileged Class, and One-World Globalist’s, all fight for their One-World Socialist Economic Utopia, Under a One-World Communist Regime. A society with the Elitist Have’s at the top (them), with the lower-class, second-rate, common-folk at the bottom (us). A system that they are willing to fight for by sacrificing our United States Constitution, Israel, and the freedom bestowed by our creator God, in order to achieve their lopsided communist two-tier system of government. They do this by siding with those who are willing to kill, slaughter, and attack America, American’s, and the State of Israel. They side with those who fight to end the very principles that our Founding Fathers fought and bled for, in order to bestow ultimate power and authority upon themselves.
Ultimately, regardless of the intentions of the Palestinian terrorists over the past week, Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s pro-terrorist comments come at no surprise to many, as she has proven to have a multitude of ties to various pro-terror Palestinians like Maher Abdel-qader, who was a fundraiser and campaigner for Tlaib in 2018, and who also spread antisemitic conspiracy theories online, including but not limited to, the denial of the mass genocide of Jews during the Holocaust. Also, Breitbart News reported that Tlaib used antisemitic language to describe American politicians who support Israel, as well as, wrote an op-ed for the known anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s website.
In the end, the Palestinians have refused and turned down every Israeli offer for Palestinian statehood. The Israeli’s have even offered five times, in 2000, 2001, 2007, 2008, and 2014 to share Jerusalem as the Capital for both Israel and Palestine. However, in each case, one after another, the Palestinian Authority refused each offer and abandoned negotiations with unrealistic counter-offers and unreasonable demands. Even last week, Prime Minister Netanyahu yet again called on the Palestinians to return to the negotiating table, but to no avail. Today, it seems that the only thing standing in the way of the Palestinians having a state is the Palestinians’ own refusal to accept any number of offers for statehood by Israel. In fact, much of the reason for the Palestinian’s refusal has more to do with their rejection of Israel’s very existence. For that reason, the Palestinian’s, Hamas, and the Muslim Brotherhood will stop at nothing, nor agree to anything that falls short of the irradiation of Israel, and the Jewish people from not only the Middle East but more importantly the face of the earth.
