Rashida Tlaib supports Hamas murdering Jews

Over the past two days, "progressive" Democrats took $1 billion out of an appropriations bill that was earmarked for Israel's Iron Dome system.

In response, House leadership proposed a separate bill that would restore the Iron Dome funding.

The "progressives" are incensed.

Rashida Tlaib tweeted: "I plan on casting a no vote. We must stop enabling Israel's human rights abuses and apartheid government."

Iron Dome saves Israeli lives from Hamas rockets - rockets that are deliberately aimed at Jewish communities. Not at IDF installations - but at Jewish kindergartens, Jewish apartments and synagogues.

The anti-rocket system is purely defensive.

Tlaib knows this. And yet she still positions Iron Dome as somehow enabling human rights abuses.

The only way this makes sense is if Tlaib believes that Hamas has the human right to kill Jews.

She literally supports Hamas and Islamic Jihad  terrorism. This tweet is all the proof you need.


Some opponents of the bill are claiming that the language of the bill supports Israeli offensive operations against Gaza, using a tortured logic.

The bill says:

In addition to amounts otherwise provided by section 101, for “Procurement—Procurement, Defense-Wide”, there is appropriated $1,000,000,000, for an additional amount for fiscal year 2022, to remain available until September 30, 2024, which shall be for the Secretary of Defense to provide to the Government of Israel for the procurement of the Iron Dome defense system to counter short-range rocket threats: Provided, That such funds shall be provided to address emergent requirements in support of Operation Guardian of the Walls: Provided further, That such funds shall be transferred pursuant to an exchange of letters and are in addition to funds provided pursuant to the U.S.-Israel Iron Dome Procurement Agreement, as amended: Provided further, That nothing in the preceding provisos shall be construed to apply to amounts made available in prior appropriations Acts for the procurement of the Iron Dome defense system.
The phrase "to address emergent requirements in support of Operation Guardian of the Walls" simply means that it is to replenish Iron Dome batteries that were depleted during the war. It is explicitly only for Iron Dome, not any other weapons system. The people who claim otherwise are people who support Hamas rockets.
