Controversial freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib is once again making waves by framing Palestinians who clashed with Israel as innocent victims who “just want to be free.”
Washington Examiner reported that Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., accused the New York Times of “dehumanizing” Palestinians after the Times released a story with a headline recounting the most recent exchange of attacks between Israel and Palestinians.
“When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free?” Tlaib tweeted. “Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families. #FreePalestine.”

Many on Twitter fired back.
You are apparently mentally unstable. Please get help.

It may seem like instability, but it's really just plain old hate, which is a form of instability

It's worth mentioning that Rashida Tliab's staff was aware of this, which is why they unfollowed the account after my original story, and instead of condemning the clearly anti-Semitic posts, her staff just sent me an email saying they have no comment on the matter.

US Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib slammed a New York Times headline that framed the violence in Israel as being initiated by a barrage of rockets from Gaza.
“When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free?” she tweeted. “Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families.”
She attached a screenshot of a New York Times headline that read “Gaza militants fire 250 rockets, and Israel responds with airstrikes.”
Terror groups Hamas and Islamic jihad in Gaza have fired over 700 rockets at Israel since Friday, killing four Israelis and wounding dozens.
Earlier, Iranian-born Australian Shia Muslim Imam and President of the Islamic Association of South Australia Imam Mohamad Tawhidi, called out Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Tlaib of Michigan for their lack of condemnation in Hamas’ actions over the weekend.
Neither do I.

Close to 600 rockets have been fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip since the security situation escalated over the weekend, as red alerts continue to rock the country from the Gaza border, to the south and even central Israel. according to the Israeli Air Force.
Hamas has claimed responsibility for three Israeli deaths, as well as the scores who were wounded, through the barrage of rockets they fired into Israeli territory over the past 24 hours.
Tawhidi has taken several jabs at Representatives Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota in the past, who he called “absolute frauds and Islamists” adding that they “promote hatred against the Jewish people.
“Ilhan does not believe that the Jewish people or the Jewish nation has the right to exist,” he said, “Shame on her and shame on those who voted for her ad are staying silent. We must do everything that we can to promote peace, and make sure that the American government does not allow these people a platform.”
“Raise your voices against hatred,” he added on a trip to the infamous Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz earlier this year.
Wearing a black t-shirt with the words #WeRemember imprinted in white, well-known Australian Imam Mohamad Tawhidi proudly posted about being the first Shia Imam “to pay his respects at Auschwitz.”
“It is very sad to see what is happening within in the American government. People like Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, absolute frauds and Islamists, promoting hatred against the Jewish people,” the Imam said in his post on Twitter while visiting the camp.
