SQUAD Silent After Anti-Israel Group Fingers Hamas for Hospital Blast
The infamous Squad of AOC was quick to point fingers after a hospital was hit with a rocket during the early stages of the Israel-Hamas War.
Rep. Tlaib (D-MI) went so far as to outright blame Israel for the bombing even though there was evidence to the contrary already available.
Human Rights Watch, a left-leaning, anti-Israel group, recently determined the likely source of the rocket as being inside Palestine, yet the Squad continues to sit on its hands, not even considering an apology to Israel.
On Sunday, Human Rights Watch released its findings regarding the October 17th bombing at al-Ahli Arab Hospital.
It stated that the explosion “resulted from an apparent rocket-propelled munition, such as those commonly used by Palestinian armed groups, that hit hospital grounds.
“While misfires are frequent, further investigation is needed to determine who launched the apparent rocket and whether the laws of war were violated.”
After the explosion happened, Tlaib used Hamas-controlled Gaza Ministry of Health numbers, blaming the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for the bombing. Soon afterward, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) did the same.
They tried to use the bombing to pressure Joe Biden to apply pressure to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu for a cease-fire.
When the New York Times reported the incident, it also used the Ministry of Health numbers, which reportedly infuriated Joe Biden.
The posts made by Tlaib and Omar were never edited or removed by the congresswomen. Instead, they chose to use the conflicting numbers to attack.
For instance, Omar posted, “It is a reminder that information is often unreliable and disputed in the fog of war (especially on Twitter where misinformation is rampant).
“It is critical that we have a fully independent investigation to determine conclusively who is responsible for this war crime.”
Tlaib jumped on that bandwagon, adding, “Both the Israeli and United States governments have long, documented histories of misleading the public about wars and war crimes—like last year’s Israeli military assassination of Shireen Abu Akleh and the false claims of weapons of mass destruction that led our country into the Iraq War—and cannot clear themselves of responsibility without an independent international investigation.”
Ironically enough, Human Rights Watch was unable to corroborate the Health Ministry’s death toll, reporting, “The Ministry of Health in Gaza reported that 471 people were killed and 342 injured.
“Human Rights Watch was unable to corroborate the count, which is significantly higher than other estimates, displays an unusually high killed-to-injured ratio, and appears out of proportion with the damage visible on site.”
So, now Tlaib and Omar have had their investigation, by a group that is sympathetic to their cause, and it came up empty in terms of pointing the finger at Israel, yet they remain silent.
Sadly, while it is clear they do not have our country’s interest at heart, both of them will likely be re-elected, which is just shameful for their constituents.
