US lawmakers tweeted yesterday against Israel’s ongoing aggression on Gaza, including an airstrike that completely destroyed and leveled to the ground the Al-Jalaa Tower which housed international media offices, including the office of the Al Jazeera Network.

US Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib tweeted that “Israel targeting media sources is so the world can’t see Israel’s war crimes led by the apartheid-in-chief Netanyahu.”

“It’s so the world can’t see the killing of babies, children and their parents. It’s so the world can’t see Palestinians being massacred.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar said in a tweet that it was “disgusting and immoral for the US to endorse this violent bloodshed.”

 

“I don’t know any other time when the US has actively blocked a ceasefire and allowed for civilians to get slaughtered.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that “this is happening with the support of the United States. I don’t care how any spokesperson tries to spin this. The US vetoed the UN call for ceasefire.”

“If the Biden admin can’t stand up to an ally, who can it stand up to? How can they credibly claim to stand for human rights?” she wondered.

Rep. Bernie Sanders also tweeted: “If the United States is going to be a credible voice on human rights on the global stage, we must uphold international standards of human rights consistently. We must recognize that Palestinian rights matter. Palestinian lives matter.”

  1. “Israel has a right to defend itself.”

    Joe Biden, is pretending to be unaware of Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system (the U.S. government actually pays for it too) which intercepts roughly ninety percent of those ineffective, homemade rockets launched by Hamas.

    Hey Joe, doesn’t Hamas have the right to attempt to defend Gaza’s Palestinian population against Israel, who has subjected them to an all-out genocide for the past 14 years?

  2. By sending $10.5 million of American taxpayer money per day to Israel (in the form of military aid) along with $9 million more of American taxpayer money per day to those particular Arab countries (so that they don’t try to help the Palestinians), once again shows that the Zionist-controlled United States government does not pledge allegiance to the American flag; instead, it pledges allegiance to the Israeli flag. Furthermore, this makes the USA an accomplice to Israel’s all-out genocide against the Palestinians.
