Ilhan Omar Blames Everyone But Herself For False Gaza Hospital Bombing Tweet

Ilhan Omar Blames Everyone But Herself For False Gaza Hospital Bombing Tweet

“Our office cited an AP report yesterday that the IDF had hit a Baptist hospital in Gaza. Since then, the IDF denied responsibility and the US intelligence assessment is that this was not done by Israel.”

The media/Hamas-pushed story of the IDF allegedly “bombing” a Gaza hospital and “killing at least 500” has completely fallen apart, with the likely culprit for the parking lot blast being a misfired Hamas rocket, and the death toll likely being much lower.

Regardless of those inconvenient facts, members of the Congressional Hamas Caucus, which includes Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), left tweets up on their Twitter pages that uncritically accepted the claims of the Gaza Health Ministry, which were reported uncritically by the Associated Press and other media outlets as well as anti-Israel propagandists in academia:

While Tlaib is still spreading the fake news and, in the process, inciting “ceasefire” insurrectionists to take over the Capitol complex, Omar is attempting to walk hers back, blaming the original tweet on her “office” and the Associated Press rather than take responsibility for what she tweeted:

“Our office cited an AP report yesterday that the IDF had hit a Baptist hospital in Gaza. Since then, the IDF denied responsibility and the US intelligence assessment is that this was not done by Israel.”

In another tweet, she emphasized the need to verify to ensure sources were “credible” so as not to be guilty of sharing “misinformation” that went out “in the fog of war”:

“It is a reminder that information is often unreliable and disputed in the fog of war (especially on Twitter where misinformation is rampant). We all have a responsibility to ensure information we are sharing is from credible sources and to acknowledge as new reports come in.”

And then, showing that, unlike Hamas, she is unwilling to take Israel at their word, Omar went on to call for an “independent investigation” to find out “who is responsible for this” alleged “war crime.”

“It is critical that we have a fully independent investigation to determine conclusively who is responsible for this war crime,” she also wrote.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to be able to figure out that Omar shot herself in the foot here. She’s the one who immediately pounced and seized on unverified (mis)information and propaganda that happened to conveniently make the IDF look like savage war criminals who cared nothing about the loss of innocent lives.

Further, the tweet was up for some 30 hours or so before she posted her follow-up comments, and well after videos and photos had emerged and been dissected and analyzed to show what really happened. And even after all the available evidence confirmed that this wasn’t Israel “bombing” a Gaza hospital, she’s still got the original tweet blaming them up on her page.

And in the last tweet, she wrote on the subject where she called for an independent investigation, note how Omar still refers to the incident as a “war crime.” In other words, she’s trying to pull yet another con. She’s not genuinely interested in an independent investigation because she truly believes Israel was responsible for what happened; she wouldn’t still be calling it a “war crime” otherwise.

“Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,” Omar wrote in 2012 in a since-deleted tweet. Omar told us who she really was then and she’s still telling us today.

Despite that, here’s how former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) reacted when asked about Tlaib’s and Omar’s tweets:

Former Democratic House speaker Nancy Pelosi told National Review that “the intelligence said that there was no evidence that” Israel was behind the bombing. But when asked if members of the Democratic caucus should delete tweets blaming Israel, Pelosi said: “I don’t know who’s doing what. I really haven’t paid attention to other members.”

“I haven’t seen those comments,” Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries told National Review after being informed that Tlaib and Omar had blamed Israel for the bombing.

Last I checked, being a Useful Idiot was not a good look. Clearly, Pelosi and Jeffries disagree.

Nope, it was her she was her fell right into the thing that reinforced her preconceived conceptions

Wait, we are supposed to believe that former Speaker Pelosi and potential future Speaker Jefferies aren’t on Talib’s distribution list?

That she doesn’t make certain they hear from her?

You’d have to be a true, rusted-on, Democrat to believe that.

Why do we amplify these people? They’re simply the Greta Thunberg of Jew-Haters.

Yes, their Jew-Hating constituents will re-elect them, but they should be ostracized and ignored.

You give them a broader audience by caring what the poop they say.

Marginalize and minimalize their evil Jew-Hatred.

Might it possibly have something to do with her religion?

It’s just brainwashing followed by cognitive dissonance so that contrary evidence is mentally rejected. It’s not a character flaw, though you might question what team she’s on. You tend to stay on the team you start out on for that very reason.

It happens to everybody.

Dems NEVER apologize


And once, when Nikki worked for the boss, she got something right

ran-backed Hamas and Hezbollah are not sanctioned or labeled as terror groups by the UN Security Council
The U.S. has subsidized Hamas to the tune of $380 million since Biden took office and restarted funding to the UN’s Palestinian refugee agency

Former U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley repeatedly pressed the organization to formally list Hamas as a terrorist group

Biden draws equivalence and conflates. What a true ASS!

Quick thinking Omar. You got out of that one as easily as your immigration fraud and marriage to your brother.

She ain’t the first person to run with some BS idea and refuse to back off it until everyone else is calling them out on it. That might be forgivable if it was the first time.

What isn’t forgivable is the context. She’s known for her antisemitism. She does this sort of thing all the time. In her view no matter what the West but particularly Israel and the US are wrong. Every time she has a choice to pause and wait for more information she chooses to denounce Israel, the US and West while praising terrorists, particularly Islamic terrorism. Eff this broad.

    Personally, I’ve never understood why her bitch ass is even here. She never has anything good to say about the US unless she’s burning something down.

      Because oh bastard imported thousands of Somalians and stuck them in Dearborn

        Yeah I know about the Somalian imports but I’m saying why does she stay if it’s so bad.

          CommoChief in reply to healthguyfsu. | October 20, 2023 at 2:48 pm

          b/c she’s full of crap. She has a niche market to exploit in a Western Nation and parlayed that into political and personal power she knows she wouldn’t enjoy outside the West.

        Actually, it started with Clinton and incredible as it may seem, the Catholic/Lutheran ‘aid societies’.

        “thousands of Somalians and stuck them in Dearborn”

        Huh? She’s from Minnesota’s 5th District, which is Minneapolis and some suburbs. Dearborn is in Michigan, and it’s had a large Arab population since the early 20th century, when the Ford Motor Co. was hiring everyone who’d come.

Hamas likely slaughtered 500-1000 people at the Baptist Hospital.

We must investigate and then punish those in legacy media responsible for disseminating this heinous misinformation flowing out of Gaza and the West Bank.

“@POTUS this is what happens when you refuse to facilitate a ceasefire & help de-escalate.”

a cease fire? Who started the firing? who escalated this into a VERY hot war this month?
To me, it is time Israel levels the area, and becomes the “evil colonizer” that everyone says they already are. At this point, the only way to long-term de-escalate this issue is to kill hamas and its supporters.

Bet her hair and other parts of her body smell to high heaven.
Surprised she walked her tweet back, her district might not vote for her for caving to the truth.

There are many rockets in Gaza, but not many rocket scientists.

I’m still trying to understand why her American hating ass isn’t in prison for immigration and student loan fraud.

Dems must send message and expel the squad from Dem party. Cut off all DNC funding to the squad. Force them to be “independents” with Bernie.

She probably can’t do otherwise, but it is actually advantageous to sound like an idiot when exploiting the emotional reactions of idiots.
