Where Even Twitter Recognizes Rashida Tlaib Libel as a Libel

A few days ago, antisemitic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib tweeted out a video from IMEU, purporting to show Israeli wrongdoing:

Besides the apartheid libel, the video did not show this at all. Rather, it showed Israeli police breaking up a brawl between palestinians Arab teenagers.

Police worked to break up a brawl between teenagers that broke out at the Damascus Gate on Thursday night as hundreds of revelers filled the area to celebrate the second night of Ramadan.

Israel Police announced that a brawl broke out between groups of young Palestinians at the scene. The police entered the area and separated the groups in an attempt to restore the peace. One suspect was arrested.

Video published by the police showed groups of teenagers brawling at the scene before police entered the plaza and separated the groups.

Palestinian media claimed that Israeli security forces attacked young men at the Damascus Gate and damaged the stalls of vendors, without mentioning the brawl.

Video published by Palestinian media from the scene showed a small group of individuals fighting and crowds of teenagers fleeing as police entered the area. The video of teenagers running did not include audio.

The violence and portrayal of the incident as an attack by Israeli forces on worshippers by Palestinian media come as police are working to keep the peace ahead of the first Friday of Ramadan.

In other words, Tlaib was using video that showed Israeli soldiers trying to ensure a peaceful Ramadan for Muslim worshippers as showing the exact opposite – engaged in violence with Muslim worshippers.

Even Twitter recognized the lie and added a disclaimer to Tlaib’s tweet:

And the icing on the cake? IMEU deleted their tweet:

As for Tlaib, she has left the tweet up and not responded to media asking if she would correct or delete it, even though it makes her look like the antisemitic, mendacious liar that she is.

Fox News Digital reached out to Tlaib’s office asking if the congresswoman would correct or delete the tweet but received no response.
