The mainstream media and the Democrat Party will not expose or discipline Tlaib (and the Squad) for their support of Palestinian terrorism. Instead, they allow the Squad to spread hatred of Israel (and American Jews who support Israel) to their social media audiences. This has resulted in 58 percent of all religiously motivated hate crimes in America being against Jews.
“The media’s failure to adequately report on this undeniable reality has contributed to the emergence of a distorted zeitgeist, in which influential public figures such as Rashida Tlaib can advocate without fear of consequence on behalf of Palestinian terrorists, while slamming Israelis for defending themselves.”

Media Bias Provides Cover for Rashida Tlaib’s Efforts to Hide Palestinian Terror
By Algemeiner, September 6, 2021
On August 28, United States Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) ignited a firestorm after posting a claim on Twitter that Israel was dehumanizing Palestinians by not returning the body of an assailant who in June had attempted to ram a car into IDF soldiers before exiting the vehicle while wielding a knife. She was subsequently shot dead.
Nevertheless, Tlaib wrote the following on the social media platform:
First, there is the obvious fact that Tlaib failed to even note that Afana had committed an act of terrorism.
Second, Afana was not killed by “the Israeli government,” but rather by security forces who were intentionally targeted.
Third, Tlaib alludes to an Israeli policy whose underpinnings she is clearly unfamiliar with.
While Rashida Tlaib in particular, and more broadly the international media, have seemingly turned a blind eye to the ramifications of Israel returning the bodies of dead Palestinian terrorists, the country’s High Court of Justice has addressed the matter.
In 2019, the court ruled that the military has the legal right to keep the bodies of slain terrorists. The justices determined that doing so is a matter of national security, and that the practice was not illegal under international law governing armed conflict.
The ruling was effectively a judicial seal of approval for a 2018 parliamentary law that allowed district police commanders to determine whether to release terrorists’ bodies for burial. The law made clear that praise has repeatedly been lavished on dead terrorists at their funerals, which, in turn, has served to incite additional attacks.
Indeed, what Tlaib overlooks — and the media continually downplays — is the culture of “martyrdom” that pervades Palestinian society.
Street names being named after killers of Israeli civilians;
Over 30 Palestinian schools named for terrorists and Nazi collaborators;
Summer camps named after — and praising — terrorists; and
Terror payments from the Palestinian Authority’s “Martyrs Fund” — monthly stipends to the families of terrorists killed, wounded, or imprisoned for attacking Israeli women, children, and men
Tlaib’s August 28 tweet was the latest in a series of posts vilifying the Jewish state for defending its citizens.
In 2020, she tweeted to her 1.4 million followers:
I still remember the Erekat family’s plea last year to release their loving son, Ahmed’s body. Here is his story. @hrw and other human rights organizations have demanded an end to this disgusting practice, and the U.S. must join them in that demand.
Besides dismissing Israel’s response to serious national security concerns as a “disgusting practice,” Tlaib again engages in historical revisionism. Ahmad Erekat was caught on video committing an act of terrorism.
Security footage shows Erekat driving a car while approaching a checkpoint in Abu Dis, near Jerusalem. He suddenly accelerates while turning towards a group of Israeli security personnel. He then rams into a female officer, who is knocked into the air. After ignoring warnings issued after the initial incident, Erekat swiftly exited his vehicle, possibly in a bid to target more soldiers.
Incredibly, CNN then produced this headline:
