Tlaib Shields Anti-Semitic Murderers, If Not White

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has long peddled in anti-Semitic tropes throughout her short career in American politics. Fellow female Somali refugee Ayaan Hirsi Ali wondered publicly “Can Ilhan Omar Overcome Her Prejudice,” which is instilled in most Muslim Somalis from birth.

After the Palestinian political-terrorist group HAMAS launched 4,000 rockets into Israel most recently, Omar pointed the finger at many groups she felt committed human rights abuses and war crimes, tweeting “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” lumping leading democracies with terrorist groups. The condemnation from Jews and American patriots was swift. As was the defense from fellow Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) who tweeted:

I am tired of colleagues (both D+R) demonizing @IlhanMN. Their obsession with policing her is sick. She has the courage to call out human rights abuses no matter who is responsible. That’s better than colleagues who look away if it serves their politics.

Tlaib has no such courage.

In December 2019, after two Black people shot up a kosher store in Jersey City, NJ killing two, Tlaib tweetedThis is heartbreaking. White supremacy kills,” pointing the finger at White people whom she assumed committed the anti-Semitic murders. When Tlaib found out that the killers were actually Black, she deleted the tweet and then generically condemned anti-Semitism but not from Black people.

For Tlaib, the murderers and anti-Semites should only be called out if they’re White.

Ilhan Omar remarkably admitted that Hamas and the Taliban commit atrocities. Rashida Tlaib can do no such thing, as she fights to defend Hamas terrorists who kill Israeli Jews and shields Black anti-Semitic murderers from public condemnation.
