I am heartbroken from their lack of shame. I am repulsed by their cruelties and injustices. Banned for having compassion for fellow human’s? The Light is staring Evil in it’s eye.

Omar and Tlaib tell the truth and people are so shocked.
Are progressives the only people who realize Israel runs a brutal apartheid state
partially funded by our tax dollars and that Bibi, Likud and the other Zionists are dangerous monsters?
Omar and Tlaib are going to smash Trump and Bibi with the truth.
AIPAC right now is trying to dig dirt on these women, and the Mossad has sent in a hit squad to hit the squad.
Be strong, ladies, and know that the good people of the world love and admire you.

Ever since Israel attacked the USS Liberty—American lives seem to have no value. It’s bad enough that Israel did not care----but horrifying that America never seem to protest. : (

Yes–the others need to go and see and then confront this outrage and then they need to see just how much it relates to their own nation’s history of oppression and nearly complete extermination of its own indigenous peoples all while babbling on about a Judeo-Christian ethos.

Not until this and the facing of the other diabolical crime of kidnapping and enslaving the Africans which means atonement and the demolition of all its racists institutions and economic system of exploitation will the US America have a remote chance of becoming a nation of true equality.

This Empire was honed on the bones and blood of the indigenous peoples.

The Imperial Corporate Media and most U.S. politicians, including the PEP’s (Progressive Except for Palestinians) have been silent about the Israeli apartheid state and its illegal settlements and blockade of Gaza as well as its many war crimes and crimes against humanity inflicted on the people of Gaza, for more than 50 years.

Meanwhile, the U.S. gives that apartheid, war-criminal state more than $3 billion of aid EVERY YEAR so it can continue is crimes and oppression of Palestinians.

What would most Americans do if they knew the truth about all this?

How come Americans are the only nation still wringing their hand about things that happened hundreds of years ago? Every country was built on top of another one, Europeans have been killing each other for at least 2000 years for religion, land and personal vendettas. Nobody is whining about atonement, reparation and stuff like that.

This is just a guess, because it wasn’t hundreds of years ago. NA were given citizenship in the U.S. in 1924.

On the other hand women were given the right to vote in 1920, after the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution

While King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia granted women the right to vote in 2011.

You are quite right about that! The countries of Europe were busy colonizing the coastal Africa and the Far East before they landed in North and South America and including the Caribbean Islands where slavery was introduced. Most of the European countries stole the resources in Africa and the Far East and proudly continue to display gold and other riches in their churches and museums. The Spanish and Portuguese enslaved Indigenous and Africans throughout the Caribbean and South America. Although the abolitionist movement began in England, many businessmen were already extremely wealthy from the slave trade and the use of slaves in their territories. If European Colonizers have paid tribute to any of the countries that they robbed, I missed reading that history. Algeria gained independence from France in the 1962 after eight years of war

However it is difficult to swallow the global indifference toward the genocidal actions of the Zionist Jews against the People of Palestine for over fifty years.

If you go into the WaPo the comments to the article on this event are predominantly: “These extremist, Muslim-Marxist, anti-Semitic lovers of those total-loser terrorist Palestinians are going to bring the whole Democratic Party down and guarantee 4 more years of Trump!”

Your comment is indicative of what happens when a human lacks conscience, ethics, ideals, heart, and intelligence.
You’ve embraced the dark side of the human species, and your “logic,” if taken to its ultimate conclusion, is the utmost in nihilism, fatalism, and whataboutism.
It reminds me of the comment by gestation slavery advocate Steve King, who said that humans have always engaged in rape and incest, and that makes it ok to force women to bear the children of rape and incest.
If someone was to pillage and kill you or your family or anyone else you care about, (assuming without evidence that you care about anything at all), how would you feel if someone described it as “whining” when you asked for justice.

Not really. Israel is a squatter in land that doesn’t belong to them. This has been determined by the UN Security Council umpteen times. The ONLY reason Israel has been able to get away with “murder” is because the US Vetoes UN Resolutions one after another. Here’s something you may not know: The US has used its vetoe powers more than any other member country in the Security Council. And, most of the US vetoes were used to support Israel’s illegal occupation, their genocide, and their apartheid. But as they say, “Everything must change”. So, the arrival of “The Squad” may be the harbinger of change. Let’s hoe so.Its time for the old guard to die out and for new, young blood to clean up the mess of colonialism and empire.
