US Congresswoman Tlaib Says Israeli ‘Military Occupation’ Encourages Palestinian ‘Honor Killings’


Understandably, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) released a statement decrying the phenomenon of "honor" killings. "Israa's death illustrates an ever-present toxic masculinity and control over women's bodies and lives," she tweeted.

However, Tlaib then attaches a link to her tweet for an article that blames Israeli occupation for such killings. "Israeli military occupation and a corrupt Palestinian Authority both hinder any legal, economic, and social progress. Right now, there are Arabic articles (this story has rightfully taken the Arab world by storm) and doubtless, some Hebrew articles being published by some Zionist news outlets to try and pink-wash occupation," says the article.
