Rashida Tlaib has never met a terrorist that she didn’t love. Who would have believed we would have such a person in the U.S. Congress, but we have several now. She is on another crusade. She wants Israel to return the bodies of terrorists killed during their attempts at killing Israelis. She refers to the terrorists as “loving and successful.” But, many of the terrorists were not successful although they are loving to kill Israelis.
Tlaib mourned the fact the body of Palestinian terrorist Mai Afana, whom Tlaib described as a “loving daughter and successful student,” has not been given to her family, where they can be used as martyrs and used for their propaganda. But, Tlaib never mentions why she was killed. She tried to slam into Israeli soldiers at checkpoints. After she crashed, she exited her car and tried to stab the Israeli soldiers.
“Meet Mai Afana’s mother, Khuloud, who is fighting to be able to bury her daughter & begin her healing. Mai was a mother, loving daughter & successful PhD student. She was killed by the Israeli government last June. Israel won’t release her body to her family.”
This is insane. Mai Afana & Ahmed Erekat were killed as they were trying to carry out murderous terror attacks. Is @RashidaTlaib going to start terror-washing the #ISIS bombers in #Kabul as "loving sons" and "succesful students"? pic.twitter.com/Lp1f7MBcyt

“The Palestinian people deserve the same dignity as any other human being. To deny the right to see their loved ones for a modicum of closure is another form of painful violence from the U.S.-sponsored, Israeli arsenal. Mai’s dead body is one of the hundreds being held.”
A third tweet saw Tlaib attempt to tug on her followers’ heartstrings by telling the story of the Erekats and their “loving son” Ahmed. Ahmed also tried ramming his car into a group of Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint. She is calling on the United States to force Israel into ending their disgusting practice. But, she did not call for the end of terrorist attacks by Palestinians. Gee, I wonder why.
The soldier who was injured in the attack said Ahmed, the nephew of late Palestinian senior official Saeb Erekat, said he “looked [her] in the eye, turned the steering wheel and rammed” into her, sending her flying across the median, as video footage of the incident shows.

Tlaib’s tweets on Saturday generated plenty of backlash. Asher Freedman wrote, “This is insane. Mai Afana & Ahmed Erekat were killed as they were trying to carry out murderous terror attacks. Is @RashidaTlaib going to start terror-washing the #ISIS bombers in #Kabul as “loving sons” and “succesful [sic] students”?”
Others called on Tlaib to speak out against Hamas for holding the bodies of two Israeli soldiers who died during Operation Protective Edge in 2014 as well as two Israeli citizens who they are holding captive.
