See Who Palestine Supporter Tlaib Blames For Hamas Israel Attack 

 

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) finally broke her silence on the Hamas militant group’s attack on Israel with the member of the leftist “Squad” refusing to condemn the terrorist group for Saturday’s attack.

Tlaib, who is also a Palestinian American, released a statement on Sunday, stating that she grieved Saturday’s loss of lives. The Democrat lawmaker, however, did not blame or condemn Hamas for the attack. Instead, Tlaib blamed what she called the “apartheid system” backed by the United States for Saturday’s terror attack on innocent civilians including children.

“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,” Tlaib wrote in her statement.“The path to the 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.”

Tlaib’s statement did not sit well with conservatives with the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) accusing her of “antisemitic victim-blaming.”

“Extreme House Democrats – including their leader, Antisemite sympathizer @HakeemJeffries [House Minority Leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY)] can either condemn this Antisemitic victim-blaming or agree with it,” the NRCC wrote on X.

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary Jeremy Redfern argued that Tlaib is saying that Hamas will continue to murder Jews until the U.S. ends its support for Israel.

“The last sentence is probably the worst part,” Redfern wrote on X. “Essentially, she’s saying that the murdering of Jews will continue until the U.S. stops supporting Israel.”
