Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has gotten some well-deserved pushback for tweets she posted Saturday that called terrorists “loving” and “successful” and bemoaned the fact that Israel would not release the bodies of two such terrorist attackers to their families.
Tlaib called Palestinian terrorist Mai Afana a “loving daughter and successful student,” and Ahmed Erekat a “loving son.” Both of them intentionally rammed a car into a crowd of Israeli soldiers and Afana followed up her attack by trying to stab police.
“The Palestinian people deserve the same dignity as any other human being,” Tlaib argued. “To deny the right to see their loved ones for a modicum of closure is another form of painful violence from the U.S. sponsored, Israeli arsenal.”
It is all so backwards in Tlaib’s mind because she has been brainwashed by people that hate Israel. It is scary that an elected official could believe lies like this and tries to spread them every chance she gets.
Some of those who pushed back against Tlaib pointed out that she has not urged terrorist group Hamas to release bodies of Israeli soldiers killed in battle and two captives they are still holding.
