Rashida Tlaib Proves ‘Hamas Caucus’ is a Better Name For ‘The Squad’

You have probably already heard that during the flag march in Jerusalem a few days ago, some participants chanted “death to Arabs.” I say you probably already heard it because the mainstream media was all over it, as of course were propaganda outfits masquerading as the media, like AJ+.

Hamas used it as a pretext to launch incendiary balloons into Israel, causing at least 20 fires within Israel, leading to IAF strikes against targets in Gaza in retaliation.

A cause and effect some in the mainstream media had a hard time reflecting.

And of course there were those, such as Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, who like Hamas, wanted to stoke the flames….of antisemitism with lies and half-truths:

Yet again, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is stoking the flames of antisemitism with her lies.

Yes, there was a flag match, but it was not violent – the only violence came from Arab protesters who clashed with police.

Yes, there were some despicable “death to Arabs” chants, but they were uttered by a very small number of participants, who have been roundly and rightly condemned by Israeli officials and the vast majority of Israelis alike. If only genocidal chants like “From the River to the Sea” and “Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning”- which we hear at “pro-palestinian” rallies – were uttered only by a very small number of participants, and were roundly and rightly condemned by the majority of other “pro-palestinians.”

Yes, the IAF struck Gaza, but the Congresswoman omits to mention they were in response to Hamas’ launching of incendiary balloons toward Israel, which caused at least 20 fires within lands the Palestinian Arabs claim to hold dear.

Also, given the Palestinian Arab population within Israel and the palestinian-controlled territories has only continued to grow over the years, I don’t think the words “ethnic cleansing” mean what the Congresswoman thinks they mean.*

With such one-sided propaganda, it is no wonder some have renamed the squad “The Hamas Caucus.”
