Geraldo Rivera took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to . . . defend Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, saying âIsrael is occupying Palestinian landâ and âNo spinning or propagandizing or mythologizing or rationalizing is going to change that ugly factâ:
Those attacking @RashidaTlaib (& @IlhanMN ) for their stance on Israel are in denial. Israel is occupying Palestinian land. No spinning or propagandizing or mythologizing or rationalizing is going to change that ugly fact.

Thanks for reminding me (again) why following you was painful.

As for his first claim:
In order for there to be "Palestinian land," there must be a precedent for Palestinians having sovereignty over the disputed land. Please show us on a map from any time in history where Palestine is/was located that grants this claim to sovereign land.https://t.co/RgZTU26s9f

And even if that was true, he still doesnât get why weâre critical of them:
Even forgetting your historical illiteracy, that is not why people are critical of Tlaib and Omar.

Weâre actually not surprised at Riveraâs tweet:
This is the same Geraldo Rivera that once compared Yasser Arafat to George Washington.https://t.co/qUPalvqa4W

And Twitchy favorite Nick Searcy calls it what it is:

Will AOC, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar boycott trips to the West Bank over THIS?! https://t.co/b6yz1z0xto
