In a fiery speech on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) slammed Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) over the latter’s opposition to U.S. funding for Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system.
The Iron Dome has been crucial in saving countless Israeli lives from rockets fired by Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah from Gaza and Lebanon into Israel.
“I cannot, I cannot allow one of my colleagues to stand on the floor of the House of Representative and label the Jewish democratic State of Israel an apartheid state. I reject it,” said Deutch passionately. “Today, this caucus, this body, the House of Representatives will overwhelmingly stand with our ally the State of Israel in replenishing this defensive system.”
Good for him, the fact is he was, in my view, far too gracious to Rep. Tlaib. She is unfit, again in my view, to shovel camel dung, much less hold a seat in the House. But, the media mostly covers for her pro-terrorist and anti-Israel views. So, we can hope she loses her House seat next year. Then maybe she can begin a new career, maybe as a model or something.
OK, maybe that modeling deal is a no go
