Surprise: 'The Squad' Has a Weird Foreign Policy Obsession

'The Squad's' most prominent members are disproportionately obsessed with criticizing one particular foreign country.  I'll give you three guesses.  Actually, I'll give you just one, because the answer should be obvious.  We're talking about Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, after all.  Their history is not exactly subtle, is it?


This infographic is therefore entirely unsurprising, even if it exposes a deep-seated moral bankruptcy:



Israel is a tiny nation, home to nine million people on a planet of nearly 8 billion. It punches above its weight in a number of ways, no doubt, and has forged powerful alliances. But there is absolutely no reason why any American public figure or member of Congress would criticize Israel more than any other country absent the fact that it is the lone Jewish state on earth. One of the hallmarks of anti-Semitism within the 'anti-Zionism' posture is no sense of proportion, coupled with the application of glaring double standards. Those social media numbers speak for themselves, especially from Tlaib, who is the clumsiest and most virulent bigot of the bunch (Omar is a close second).  In this sense, the Squadsters are similar to the embarrassing anti-Semites who dominate the United Nations General Assembly:

The United Nations General Assembly approved on Friday a resolution requesting the International Court of Justice weigh in on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israeli “annexation” and the “legal status of the occupation.” The resolution promoted by the Palestinians passed by a vote of 87 in favor, 26 against, with 53 abstentions. The resolution is titled “Israeli practices and settlement activities affecting the rights of the Palestinian people and other Arabs of the occupied territories” and calls on the Hague-based ICJ to “render urgently an advisory opinion” on Israel’s “prolonged occupation, settlement and annexation of Palestinian territory.” ...Israel, the US, the UK, Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany and Italy voted against Friday’s resolution...China, Iran, Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Russia and Saudi Arabia were among those voting in favor, along with Muslim or Arab states with which Israel has relations including Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Azerbaijan. France, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland abstained.


China and Russia voting to harass a tiny democracy.  Very on-brand. This fixation is the norm, not the exception, at Turtle Bay.  This is from late 2021:

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan chastised the United Nations Human Rights Council on Friday for its disproportionate condemnation of Israel, tearing up the organization’s annual report while at the podium. In a speech to the General Assembly, the Israeli envoy slammed the UNHRC for its “obsessive anti-Israel bias” during a special session at which the council presented its annual report. “Since the establishment of the council 15 years ago, it has decided to blame and condemn Israel not 10 times like Iran or 35 times like Syria,” Erdan said. “The Human Rights Council has attacked Israel with 95 resolutions. Compared to 142 against all other countries combined.”

And some updated statistics from last year:


A sick joke, per usual.  The UN's moral standing is another thing that speaks for itself.  Finally, because the Squad is also fond of criminal "justice" so-called "reforms" and coddling criminals (let's not forget the Minneapolis riots bail fund, hawked by our vice president), I'll leave you with this, from another place in the grip of the hard Left:


I suspect that if you asked Ms. Tlaib why such things are happening, she could find a creative way to blame the You-Know-Who's.
