Here's the latest on the war in Israel from Fox News…
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Friday to press him for multiple “humanitarian pauses” in the war to get aid to Palestinians. He claims this is different from an all-out ceasefire, which would give Hamas time to retrench and launch an offensive. But Netanyahu wisely rejected it. His view is that if Hamas wants their destruction paused, they should release their hostages and surrender. Otherwise, their choice is to surrender or die.
A number of Democrats are frantically trying to distance themselves from the blatant anti-Semitism that’s suddenly become so obvious in their party. For instance, on Thursday, the House passed a resolution condemning the on-campus support of terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, and the vote was 396 to 23. The 22 Democrats who voted against it are under fire and some are trying the usual self-righteous excuses for their inexcusable behavior.
The only one that I would give any credence to is New York Rep. Ritchie Torres, who claims he voted against it by mistake. He said he’s submitted a correction for the record, adding, "I have no use for pro-Hamas protestors, and I despise them with every fiber of my being." The only Republican to vote no was Rep. Thomas Massie, who says he opposed it on free speech grounds.
Of course, that leaves the gaggle of radicals like the Squad who refuse to back down from their anti-Israel, anti-American, anti-Semitic rhetoric. Perhaps worst of all is Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who is such a cheerleader for Hamas terrorism, she might as well be carrying explosive pompoms. She slammed President Biden for supporting Israel, saying she might not support his reelection, and claiming he’s aidingg in “the genocide of the Palestinian people.” This must be the first genocide where the people allegedly committing it are going to extraordinary lengths to keep from harming anyone.
Speaking of genocide, Tlaib took to Twitter (X) to feebly argue that when her supporters chant “From the river to the sea,” it’s not the universally-known call for the annihilation of Israel and for Palestinians to take over the land it now occupies. No, perish the thought! She tweeted that “From the river to the sea is an aspirational call for freedom, human rights, and peaceful coexistence, not death, destruction, or hate. My work and advocacy is always centered in justice and dignity for all people no matter faith or ethnicity.”
And I have some prime oceanfront property in Little Rock that I’d love to sell you.
Respondents rightly ripped her to shreds for that “peaceful coexistence” camel manure, posting graphic photos and videos of the actual genocide inflicted on innocent Israeli civilians, including children and babies, by the barbaric Hamas terrorists she’s defending.
I hope she’s right that “we will not forget” when we vote in 2024, and that Americans will remember who the real genocide-endorsing, terrorist-supporting abominations are and vote them out of office and into political oblivion.
