Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, two of three Muslim members of Congress, has shared her support for the Palestinians attacking Israel.
The Palestinian terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad have fired near 1,000 rockets into Israel unprovoked since Friday.
Israel has fired back killing one of the heads of Hamas and strategically destroying military capabilities of the terror groups.
But for Reps. Tlaib and Omar what they see is that Israel is an occupying force who is oppressing the innocent, rocket firing, people of Palestine.
“I just don’t believe that when people are being unjustly oppressed that they should let someone else set rules for them by which they can come out from under that oppression.” ~ Malcolm X. Jumma Mubarak everybody!” Omar said.

“When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free?” Tlaib said sharing another tweet.
“Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families. #FreePalestine” she said.

The position of Reps. Tlaib and Omar have them in the company of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Iran who is supporting Hamas.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Sunday condemned what it called Israel’s “savage” attack on Gaza, and blamed “unlimited U.S. support” for Israel, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.
“Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said Iran strongly condemned the Zionist regime’s (Israel) savage attack … which martyred and wounded dozens of Palestinians, including women and children,” Fars reported.
“Due to unlimited American support for this regime and the embarrassing silence of some Islamic governments, there is no end to Zionist crimes in the occupied Palestinian territories,” Mousavi was quoted as saying, referring to a surging cross-border fighting.
I guess I missed your tweet condemning Hamas

It's called chronological order, ma'am. Sorry if cause and effect is offensive to you. Oh, and hey, does your office have any comment on you having followed this page yet? Last time I asked, they said "no comment." https://t.co/A9czVptPxG pic.twitter.com/qrLRDQa4qL

I have the feeling Rashida – that if the US were attacked by terror groups – and over 600 rockets had been fired at Michigan communities in just 48 hours – those people who voted you in – would want you to do a little more than support the side of the terrorists.
