Notoriously anti-Semitic Rep. Rashida Tlaib tweeted a video on Tuesday that she claimed showed Israeli police assaulting teenagers who were allegedly Palestinian in Jerusalem during the start of Ramadan on March 22. It was utterly false.
“This is the violent apartheid government of Israel. Don’t look away,” she captioned.
What actually was happening in the video is that Israeli police officers intervened in a scuffle among Arab teens at the Damascus Gate as they were heading towards the Old City, where numerous individuals had gathered.
Though the original Twitter post with the video has been deleted, Tlaib’s remains up; it has received more than 1.5 million views and has been retweeted thousands of times.
This is the violent apartheid government of Israel.

Watchdog group Honest Reporting wrote: “No Rashida! Palestinian teens were fighting each other and causing a public disturbance. Israeli police came in to restore the peace. Spreading lies and misinformation is unbecoming of a congresswoman.”
“This is just the latest in your pattern of using false reports to delegitimize and demonize the world’s only Jewish state,” the Democratic Majority for Israel tweeted, while the Republican Jewish Coalition wrote: “Another day, another blatant anti-Israel lie by Rashida Tlaib—and no one in House Democratic Party leadership will hold her accountable.”

Do you still believe that “It is too easy to call Palestinian supporters anti-Semitic” and that your squad heroines don’t hate Jews?
The headline is wrong. It was the police, not the IDF
another american OINK
i was sure that AIPAC the most powerful lobby in DC would take her out.
She’s a degenerate lowlife scum, not worth listening to.
Don’t bother, it’s a cult. Cult members never turn on each other.
@Sara Rifka, I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume mentally you’re older than six years old. To call Tlaib “American” is like saying a toilet in a museum is a piece of art. Just because the toilet is inside the museum, doesn’t mean it’s art. Just because the harpy has a passport doesn’t make her American.
