As Twitchy reported, Israeli police have clashed with worshippers at the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, and rockets are being fired into Israel from Gaza as we write this. Squad member Rep. Rashida Tlaib said seeing Israeli forces attack the mosque was “beyond distressing and must be condemned in the strongest terms.”
Not surprisingly, the rest of the squad, including Rep. Ilhan Omar, is lining up against Israel.
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

So, will the Biden-Harris administration condemn Israel? Sen. Ted Cruz certainly took it to Omar:
Why is a Member of Congress acting as the press secretary for Hamas?
Does Biden agree? https://t.co/kjZG1HO0RD

Many will tell you Israel has a right to defend itself, to safety and security, but are silent on whether Palestinians have those rights too.
Until we can defend the rights of Palestinians just as we do Israelis, we have no leg to stand on when it comes to justice or peace.

It must be very frustrating for you when the Iron Dome stops terrorists from killing innocents.

Terrorists should not be attacking Israel forcing the the IDF to have to act in defense. Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

If the Palestinians are at such a disadvantage, maybe it would behoove them not to bomb or attack Israel.
Hamas is the problem Ilhan Omar, not the solution. So long as anyone defends Hamas' attacks and their use of terrorism, there can be no peace.

Hamas bombs Israeli civilians from Gaza and there's crickets from Congresswoman Omar.
Israel strikes back at the source of the airstrikes and there's immediate condemnation.
The outrage only seems to travel in one direction for some members of Congress.

The best protection is not to attack. Works 100% of the time.

Why don’t you speak out against Hamas shooting rockets from civilian sites, putting the lives of their own people at risk?

If the Palestinians set down their weapons, there would be peace in Israel today; if the Israelis set down their weapons, Israel wouldn't exist tomorrow.

Hamas are using their own people as living shields when they fire hundreds of rockets on civilian israelis. The blood is solely on their hands.

A 100% effective missile defense program Palestine could put into place would be… NOT firing rockets into Israel. 🤷
— John Perish (@PerishMotel) May 10, 2021
I think I misunderstood your intent. Since Israel can defend itself, Gaza can attack them? That logic makes no sense. Israel never attacks unprovoked. Tell Gaza to stop and Israel will immediately stop as well

AND WHAT DO WE SEE IN THIS VIDEO, YOU DISINGENUOUS FAKER OF A "HUMANITARIAN"? HUH?
A WALK IN THE PARK?
OR A FREAKIN LYNCHING!!!
WHY ARE YOU SILENT ABOUT VIOLENCE AGAINST JEWS?!?!?!

Remind us why they need Iron Dome and why you don't condemn Hamas launching missiles at Israel.

Hope Hamas sees this.

The terrorists are the ones who launched rockets at Jerusalem on Jerusalem Day.

Has Biden called a lid already? This has been going on for a while now.
