What @IlhanMN said -- that the US and Israel have committed many of the same crimes as Hamas and the Taliban -- is very similar to what Trump said to Bill O'Reilly when he compared US crimes to the Kremlin's.
Both were right. And both outrage cycles were fake and propagandistic. https://t.co/dkXMn8UAVw
If you seriously can’t tell the difference between the US and Israel, two flawed but vibrant constitutional democracies, and Hamas and the Taliban, brutal terrorist groups, I can’t help you, Congresswoman. https://t.co/78kh4MD04G
The US and Israel sell the genocidal Colombian narco-state weapons for repeated attempts to exterminate its dissidents and overthrow the Venezuelan government, but as soon as Venezuela buys a couple boats to defend itself, it's casus belli. The logic of imperialism. https://t.co/UyoUx8ssBF
@bungarsargon Omar's q to Blinken was that it's clear that the US and Israel won't thoroughly investigate and punish many war crimes by their own forces, and if the US opposes ICC jurisdiction then who is supposed to hold them accountable? Seems a fair point, no?
E) "The United States and Israel are imperfect and, like all democracies, at times deserving of critique, but false equivalencies give cover to terrorist groups. We urge Congresswoman Omar to clarify her words placing the US and Israel in the same category as Hamas & the Taliban"
The only thing wrong with what Ilhan Omar said is that the atrocities committed by the US and Israel are so beyond the level of anything done by Hamas that to put them in the same sentence is ludicrous
. @IlhanMN has claimed so many death threats that you’d think she’d have a constant recorder set up to document them. She supports #Hamas, the charter of which has direct threats of death toward Jews.
@mansoortshams@alwaysalim1@IlhanMN Oh boy, now they are saying she is equating the US and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban!
She only said they all had a history of committing atrocities.
Which is true, IMO.
@RepLeeZeldin Go fuk yourself.
The Yt men and women with their faux outrage rn think they can glorify the wrongs of the US and Israel bc they’re “civilized” when it’s the same fuking thing.
U spineless bastards just want to never be the terrorists or the bad guys. Get a real job mor0n.
@SocialistMMA But she was totally wrong and ridiculous to compare hamas to the terrorist settler colonies that are the US and Israel. Hamas is not an agressor but rather a RESISTANCE organization fighting against the imperial colonlist pig that is israel.
