(Gateway Pundit) – Democrats were OUTRAGED this week that Israel would not allow anti-Semitic lawmakers Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib into their country to protest Jews.
Rashida Tlaib was later granted permission to visit her grandmother but declined the invitation.
On Sunday Geraldo Rivera decided it was a good idea to jump into this discussion with both feet.
Boy, did he!
Geraldo accused Israel of being an occupying force in Palestinian land.
Those attacking @RashidaTlaib (& @IlhanMN ) for their stance on Israel are in denial. Israel is occupying Palestinian land. No spinning or propagandizing or mythologizing or rationalizing is going to change that ugly fact.

Geraldo’s post has gone viral. The reaction is generally negative.
Negative. When the British Mandate was divided, it was Israel for the Jews and Jordan for the Arabs. Jordan kicked out all Jews while Israel allowed Arabs to stay. PaLIEstine was an invention of Arafat, a terrorist from Cairo, Egypt, in the 1960s.

There never was an independent Palestine. Just like Narnia…
And Israel has always been our homeland.

Geraldo I think you’d be more comfortable living in Omar’s Palestine. Stop trying to make points with America’s enemies.
