If you are one of the decent human beings who inhabits the United States and other countries around the world who is convinced that murdering 1,400 innocent people in cold blood for racial and religious reasons is evil, according to several members of what is now being referred to as the “Jihad Squad” or “Hamas Caucus” in Congress, you’re guilty of “fascism and pure bigotry.” You know, I seem to remember a passage from the Scriptures that says those who refer to something evil as something good and vice versa being in big, big trouble with the Creator. If that’s true, and I believe it is, then Democratic Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota should be very, very concerned about the eternal destination of their souls.
These two have become notorious for their anti-Semitic rhetoric and hate for Israel, which was put on full display when the Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel took place a little over a month ago.
BizPacReview reported, “Like former President Donald Trump’s maligned travel ban, the legislators, joined by Indiana Rep. André Carson (D) played the victim card as the three Muslim members of Congress took aim at the supposed, ‘growing tide of bigoted anti-Muslim, anti-Arab and anti-Palestinian hate pervading our politics.'”
“Specifically, the lawmakers stood opposed to Missouri Rep. Ryan Zinke’s (R) recently introduced resolution, seeking in part to bar entry for those coming from territories controlled by the Palestinian Authority,” the report continued.
“Let’s be clear: using the full power of the state to target and persecute a particular ethnic group or nationality is fascism and pure bigotry,” the statement said.

“This legislation–by a former cabinet official no less–directly violates the U.S. Constitution, and would illegally destroy the lives of the hundreds of thousands of Palestinian immigrants who live in and contribute to American society. Though intended to target Muslims,” the legislators went on to state, “this bill will also hurt Palestinian Christians, who will be targeted by these provisions. History will harshly judge this xenophobic, punitive and unconstitutional measure.”

Zinke, who once worked as the Interior Secretary for former President Donald Trump, introduced the Safeguarding Americans From Extremism Act, going on to describe it as being the “most anti-Hamas immigration legislation I have seen and it’s well deserved.”
Here’s more from BPR:
Among other things, the resolution would “Render Palestinian Authority passport holders (covered aliens) inadmissible to the U.S.;” prohibit the Department of Homeland Security from granting visas, Temporary Protected Status, asylum or refugee status; and direct U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement with DHS to “identify and remove covered aliens without lawful status.”
I don’t trust the Biden Administration any more than I do the Palestinian Authority to screen who is allowed to come into the United States. This is the most anti-Hamas immigration legislation I have seen and it’s well deserved pic.twitter.com/4ZhZghS4Wq

The infamous three attempted to make members of the GOP from both the House and the Senate appear to be the worst bigots to grace the face of the earth since Adolf Hitler by taking many of their comments, ripping them out of context, and proof texting them to support their own twisted view, saying, “Senator Lindsey Graham went on national television to declare a ‘religious war’ and said we should ‘level’ the Gaza Strip. Senator Marco Rubio, when asked specifically about avoiding civilian casualties in Gaza, said Israel cannot co-exist with quote ‘these savages…they have to be eradicated.’ Max Miller said Gaza was going to be ‘turned into a parking lot.’ Just last week, Representative Brian Mast questioned the very idea that Palestinian civilians exist and compared them to Nazis.”
Tlaib, who was censured on Tuesday by a vote of 234-188, went on to provide a defense for Hamas’ favorite rallying cry, “from the river to the sea,” which is clearly a statement about the group’s true mission, which is to wipe Israel off the face of the map. What they want is genocide and clearly, Tlaib does too. Otherwise, she would be condemning this group left and right. But she’s not. Instead, she defends them, because she herself is apparently a radical.
Taking the House floor, she said, “I will not be silenced and I will not let you distort my words. No government is beyond criticism. The idea that criticizing the government of Israel is antisemitic sets a very dangerous precedent, and it’s been used to silence diverse voices speaking up for human rights across our nation.”
While Tlaib was quick to recall the tragic death of six-year-old Wadea Al-Fayoume, who had been stabbed by his mother’s landlord in an attack attributed to their Muslim faith, the death of 69-year-old Paul Kessler, who died at a pro-Israel rally in California after a “physical altercation” with anti-Israel protesters — along with the rampant terror spreading on college campuses — was not given the same attention.
In being censured, the Michigan congresswoman became the second Democrat to face an official slap on the wrist related to antisemitism after Omar had met the same fate in February as she was pulled from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Doesn’t it make you wonder how people like this are getting voted into office? It might have a little something to do with the fact that the districts they represent have become heavily populated by Muslims from various parts of the world. Since that is the case, does that mean those who vote them in office hold similar beliefs? That kind of puts a few wrinkles in the whole “religion of peace” narrative, doesn’t it?
