Radical Democrat Launches Attack, Blames Biden for Children's Deaths

Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan is pointing fingers at President Biden for his role in the "complicity" with the ongoing fatalities of young lives in the Middle East.

The outspoken member of the "Squad," a progressive faction within the House, has been vocal in her disapproval of how the head of her own political party has been handling the conflict involving Israel and Hamas. This comes amidst her own scrutiny from within the Democratic ranks regarding her comments on the tension.

On a Sunday afternoon, Tlaib took to her Instagram Story, tagging Biden with the message, "You see this right?" There, she posted a story from TCD News, which reported that an Israeli airstrike had resulted in the death of three children in South Lebanon.

"Your silence is deafening. Your complicity is even worse," Tlaib wrote. "A whole generation of children is being wiped out in front of us."

On October 7, militants from Hamas breached Israel's borders, resulting in the tragic loss of 1,400 individuals, predominantly civilians, which included children and the elderly. Concurrently, numerous Israelis were captured, with a significant number still remaining in captivity.

In retaliation for the unexpected incursion, Tel Aviv unleashed a barrage of rockets over Gaza, resulting in over 8,500 Palestinian fatalities, as reported by the Gaza Health Ministry, which is under Hamas' administration.

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, the sole Palestinian-American in Congress, has joined a coalition of progressive voices in calling for a halt to the hostilities. They have been proactively encouraging the White House to advocate for a ceasefire—an appeal that has yet to sway the Biden administration. Instead, the current administration has advocated for temporary humanitarian halts, aiming to facilitate aid delivery to Palestinian civilians and to extricate Israeli captives from Gaza.

On the evening of Friday, Tlaib shared a video on X where she claimed, "Joe Biden supported the genocide of the Palestinian people."

In the video, Tlaib expressed her own stance, saying, "Mr. President the American people are not with you on this one. We will remember in 2024."

This video, however, became a source of contention for Tlaib. Her Democratic colleagues voiced their objections to her use and defense of the phrase "From the river to the sea," a statement which detractors argue alludes to the eradication of Israel. Additionally, it is recognized that Hamas, designated as a terrorist organization by several countries, has adopted this phrase as a slogan.

"This phrase means eradicating Israel and Jews. Period. Dressing it up in a new PR ploy won’t change that," Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., wrote on X. "Only a return of hostages, eliminating Hamas and liberating Gaza from oppressive terror will save civilian lives and secure the peace, justice and dignity you seek."

On the platform, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel addressed Tlaib on Saturday with the message, "I have supported and defended you countless times, even when you have said the indefensible, because I believed you to be a good person whose heart was in the right place. But this is so hurtful to so many. Please retract this cruel and hateful remark."

In response to Tlaib's comments, the White House offered a rebuttal on Sunday. Jon Finer, the Deputy National Security Adviser, conveyed on ABC News' "This Week" that the Biden administration "strongly disagree with…some of the terms used to describe this conflict."

Finer further noted, "What I will say is, we know that this is a conflict about which there are strong views on all sides, including in the United States – including frankly, even within the United States."
