Rep. Rashida Tlaib, critic of Israel, silent on Hamas terror attacks as Israeli death toll climbs over 600

Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, an outspoken critic of Israel, has remained silent on Saturday’s unprecedented Hamas terrorist attack on Israel that has killed at least 600 Israelis and prompted Israel to officially declare war for the first time since 1973.

Tlaib’s office has not released a statement and the typically vocal lawmaker has not posted on social media in the nearly 24 hours since the attack began. 

Tlaib has routinely accused Israel of committing “ethnic cleansing” against Palestinians and argues that Israel is an “apartheid state.”

“Speaker McCarthy wants to rewrite history but the apartheid state of Israel was born out of violence and the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians,” Tlaib wrote on social media in May. “75 years later, the Nakba continues to this day.”

Among the 313 killed in Gaza were 20 children, and close to 2,000 wounded, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.
