Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar’s Response to Elad Terror Attack Shows Their Moral Depravity

Following Thursday evening’s brutal murder of three Israeli fathers at the hands of axe-wielding terrorists, I decided to see what the Squad had to say about it. I fully expected silence, which proved to be the case – but both Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar did manage to tweet about events in Israel:

Both decided to tweet about the Israeli High Court of Justice decision to approve the eviction of some 1,000 Palestinians from eight villages in the southern West Bank, while ignore the butchering of the three men, leaving 16 children fatherless. And in Tlaib’s case, she chose to retweet the words of an antisemitic terror-supporter.

For the record, the High Court found that the palestinian Arabs were squatting in land that has been repurposed by the Israeli army as a firing zone.

The petitioners, represented by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, presented aerial footage in an attempt to show that the villages had existed in the area for 45 years. The state, however, argued that Palestinian residents began squatting in the area after it was declared Firing Zone 918 in the 1980s, and that until then it was only used as seasonal pasture land for their livestock.

Justice Mintz wrote in the verdict, published Wednesday, that the question of whether the area was a place of permanent residence is “not complicated at all” as aerial footage from the area prior to 1980 shows no indication of a residential presence there. Mintz also cited that the fact that the area was used by the air force to conduct simulated airstrikes in the 1990s, as well as on reports issued over the years by supervisory units.

The court rejected the claim that turning the area into a closed militrary zone was contrary to international law, and said that when international law contradicts Israeli law, the latter prevails.

This was the considered decision of a the high court of a democratic country. Yet to Tlaib and Omar, this was the evil while the murder of three civilians was not even worth mentioning.

These two women are evil – it’s not complicated.
