(FeaturedNews.com) – On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) denounced the recent remarks made by former President Barack Obama and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) regarding the war between Israel and Hamas, a Palestinian militant group.
While speaking on the Senate floor, McConnell noted that left-wing politicians were expressing different views on the matter and that this is a “loud public debate” between members of the leftover how to distinguish between “indiscriminate slaughter and lawful self-defense.” As he argued last week, one “radical House Democrat” had repeatedly told her followers to push for the Jewish state to be eliminated “from the river to the sea.”
This was a reference to a social media post by Tlaib regarding the war. As McConnell added, Tlaib had subsequently tried to explain the “genocidal connotation” of her statement as a push for “peaceful coexistence.” He added that in her statement, she had implied that it was possible for Jews to live peacefully with Palestinians so long as they left the region.
McConnell also criticized Obama over his recent comments arguing that “the shameful moral equivalence” being pushed by members of the left had now reached a former President. As he pointed out in his statement, Obama had stated that he was horrified at the violence that Hamas had enacted while also denouncing the “supposed Israel occupation of Gaza.” McConnell then claimed that the only one to occupy Gaza since 2007 was Hamas and not Israel. He added that Obama had claimed that everyone had a share of responsibility, which he believed to be inaccurate as those responsible were the “terrorists.”
