Democrat Representative Rashida Tlaib refused to condemn the beheadings of Israeli babies when confronted by a reporter on Tuesday.
Fourteen Americans were also murdered during the attacks.
Tlaib’s office released a statement following the attacks, saying:
“The path to the future must include lifting the blockade, ending the occupation, and dismantling the apartheid system that creates the suffocating, dehumanizing conditions that can lead to resistance.”
On Tuesday, Rashida Tlaib was confronted by reporters over recent reports that Hamas terrorists beheaded Israeli babies.
“Congresswoman, Hamas terrorists have cut off babies’ heads and burned children alive; do you support Israel’s right to defend themselves against this brutality?” the reporter asked.
Tlaib refused to answer.
“You can’t comment about Hamas terrorists chopping off babies’ heads?” the reporter asked.
Tlaib remained silent.
“Congresswoman, do you have a comment on Hamas terrorists chopping off babies’ heads?” the reporter asked.
Tlaib continued to remain silent.
“You have nothing to say about Hamas terrorists chopping off babies’ heads?” the reporter again pressed.
She still would not answer.
“Do you condone what Hamas has done chopping off babies’ heads, burning children alive, raping women in the street?” the reporter asked.
This time, Tlaib made eye contact with the reporter but still refused to answer the question.
“You have no comment about children’s heads being chopped off?” the reporter asked.
By this time, Tlaib was standing by the elevator, still refusing to answer.
“Congresswoman, why do you have a Palestinian flag outside your office if you do not condone what Hamas terrorists have done to Israel?”
At this point, Tlaib ran into the elevator.

Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin posted on X that, “Tlaib got emotional at a hearing on migrant children being separated from their parents at the border, & called it ‘traumatic’ and ‘inhumane.'”

Today, she had no comment, and no reaction when asked about Israeli children being beheaded by Hamas terrorists. https://t.co/nb0M1bXReQ pic.twitter.com/bU3EUERZSA
It appears she doesn’t have the same outrage with the recent events in Israel.
Steve Guest also tweeted the video of when Tlaib said that thinking of the Holocaust provides her a “calming feeling.”
