Israel war: Senate Democrats bash Omar and Tlaib over Israel comments
Senate Democrats bashed Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over their comments criticizing Israel.
The two liberal "Squad" members were quick to condemn Israel after an explosion near the Christian Al-Ahli Hospital in Gaza killed or wounded several hundred people. However, footage of the incident appeared to show the blast was not due to an Israeli airstrike but likely the result of a misfired rocket within Gaza. Omar apologized and walked back her statement following the revelations, but Tlaib remained firm. Many Senate Democrats, particularly Jewish Democrats, expressed their rage against the two publicly and privately.
