Reporters reveal what happened when they confronted Rashida Tlaib with truth about Gaza hospital bombing

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) allegedly ran away from reporters on Wednesday when confronted with the truth about the purported bombing of the the Al-Ahli Hospital in Gaza.

On Tuesday, Hamas authorities claimed Israel bombed the hospital and killed over 500 people. Without any evidence to back their claim, Tlaib rushed to judgment and regurgitated the pro-Hamas propaganda.

"Israel just bombed the Baptist Hospital killing 500 Palestinians (doctors, children, patients) just like that," Tlaib reacted.

As we know now, Israel did not bomb the hospital. Rather, a failed rocket launched by terrorists in Gaza fell into a parking lot at the hospital compound. People tragically died, but there is no evidence of the casualties that Hamas claimed. And, importantly, the hospital suffered minimal — if any at all — structural damage.

On Wednesday, multiple reporters directly asked Tlaib if she planned to retract her baseless accusation. But instead, she ran away and refused to say anything, let alone admit that she falsely accused Israel for something the country did not do.

"I just asked @RashidaTlaib multiple times why she hasn't deleted this tweet—and whether she has seen evidence that refutes it. Rep. Tlaib refused to say anything as she rushed from the House floor to a car waiting to pick her up outside the Capitol building," reported John McCormack of the National Review.

"Tlaib wouldn't respond just now when I asked if she had considered taking this post down, after Biden said he believes Israel didn’t bomb this hospital," reported Max Cohen of Punchbowl News.

Unfortunately, Tlaib has not retracted her claims, despite American intelligence confirming Israel did not strike the hospital. In fact, Tlaib doubled down on Wednesday.

On the other hand, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who similarly blamed Israel for the hospital bombing, retracted her accusation late Wednesday, though she deflected direct responsibility by blaming the Associated Press for her conclusion.

The AP report to which Omar referred cited the "Gaza Health Ministry" as its source of information. As Omar probably understands, that agency is controlled by Hamas, the de facto government of Gaza.
