Rashida Tlaib Appears To Blame ‘Israeli Occupation’ For Israeli Teen’s Murder

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib once again criticized the state of Israel Friday night, following the death of an Israeli teen.

17-year-old Rina Shnerb was killed in a terrorist attack earlier this week in the West Bank, while her brother and father sustained serious injuries. Tlaib responded to the attack Friday night by making reference to the “Israeli occupation.”

“This is absolutely tragic & horrible. My heart goes out to Rina’s family,” Tlaib said in a tweet. “More than ever we need to support nonviolent approaches to ending the Israeli occupation and guaranteeing equal rights for all.”

Tlaib was responding to a tweet from “IfNotNow,” an anti-Israel organization with connections to anti-Semites and Palestinian radicals.

Tlaib and Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar gained international attention earlier this month after the two freshman congresswoman were banned from visiting Israel over their support of a global boycott of the Jewish state. Israel has a long-standing policy of denying entry to supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement.

Tlaib has also been accused of holding anti-Semitic views, including by President Donald Trump, who tweeted earlier this week that Tlaib “hates Israel and all Jewish people.”

A version of this story appears on the Daily Caller website.

    NOBODY listens to anything this bitch has to say anymore or to ANY member to the squat & leave it team. They’ve become as useless as tits on a boar hog.

    Let’s see if I understand this correctly. In 1948, the United Nations voted to create a Jewish state and an Arab state in the land that was then known as Palestine. The Jewish people accepted the deal and the nation of Israel was born. However, the Arabs rejected the deal outright. The Jewish people literally begged the Arabs to stay and live in peace with the Jewish people. The Arabs split and have been waging war against the citizens of Israel for over 70 years now vowing to annihilate the Jews and the state of Israel. The animosity and warfare never ends and now the hate monger Tlaib has joined in.

    Correct me if I got this all wrong.

    It’s reached the point where it’s become sickening having to listen to what I call the Tribe Tlaib, Omar & Cortez . Can’t forget the mousy one who’s name escapes me right now. Have to say. We all know that no matter what the situation might be, the blame will always fall on Israel and the US. It’s obvious that they (the Tribe) have no leg to stand on, their running out of excuses to blame Israel so no matter what comes up first thing these four idiots will always point the finger at Israel and the US.
    I certainly wouldn’t object if someone would stitch their mouths up so as not to have to listen to them! Or better yet why not just deport them to some island somewhere and not see them again!
