"Just as National Review (@NRO ) defended apartheid, just as you defended segregation, you now defend Israel's oppression of Palestinians' basic rights. It's a tradition for you guys." – @PeterBeinart to @RichLowry pic.twitter.com/afYrUVsoNs

This is an interesting couple of minutes of video, where Peter Beinart (a practicing Jew) points out that anyone who visits the West Bank understands the inhumanity of the conditions there. Rich Lowry, of course, falls back on Palestinian terrorism as a rationale for doing nothing. (Violence in the service of politics that Lowery endorses is “freedom fighting”. All the rest is “terrorism”.)
I don’t know if this will make any difference, but the mere fact that this conversation is going on is a product of Bibi’s inability to hop off of Trump’s dick for even a second. If Tlaib and Omar had visited the West Bank as planned, I’m sure they would have made some noise, but I doubt this much attention would have been paid.
