Shortly before 10 p.m. Monday night, an Israeli airstrike reportedly struck a residential building in Syria. This is not the first time that Israel, officially neutral in the Syrian Civil War (though they oppose Iran’s presence in the country), has struck Syria.

At approximately the same time, another Israeli bomb struck the house of Bahaa Abu al-Atta, leader of Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of terrorist cell Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). The blast killed him and his wife, injuring three others.

Recently, Rep. Ilhan Omar has criticized people in the United States who support Israel’s government and that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) influence.

I support the country of Israel and territories of Palestinian people; Israel is a legitimate country with an insane history. I believe in private property rights and do not believe two wrongs make a right. Peace between Jews and Arabs in the region is a very difficult issue. We must not get distracted by the trees of political rhetoric from the potential peace of the forest.

Civilian Slaughter Is Somehow Legal in Apartheid Israel

The apartheid state of Israel has long tried to hide some of their more barbaric practices. Most notably, they adamantly refuse to admit their possession of nuclear weapons, despite possessing up to 400 of them. The country has also stolen weapons-grade uranium from the United States. Moreover, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself is far from an innocent man. He famously asserted that the terror attacks on 9/11 were good for Israel, and has smuggled nuclear triggers for his own program.

Sadly, though, these all pale in comparison to the Jewish state’s latest stroke of immorality.
