Shireen Abu Akleh, a reporter for Al Jazeera, was killed by a bullet Wednesday as the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) hunted for jihad terrorists in Jenin. That much is certain. But who actually fired the bullet is a matter of significant dispute.
But there is one person who is absolutely certain about who killed Abu Akleh: Rep. Ilhan Omar, who tweeted on Wednesday with serene certainty about this matter that is so difficult and troubling to everyone else. Could it be that Omar is sure that Israel killed Abu Akleh because she hates Israel, not because of the evidence at hand? She wouldn’t act that way, now, would she?
Responding to an Associated Press report about Abu Akleh’s death, Omar tweeted: “She was killed by the Israeli military, after making her presence as a journalist clearly known. We provide Israel with $3.8 billion in military aid annually with no restrictions. What will it take for accountability for these human rights violations?”
