Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.,suggested Friday night that “Israeli occupation” was a factor in the murder of an Israeli teenager from what Israeli authorities have described as a terrorist attack that took place earlier in the day.

Rina Shnerb, 17, was hiking with her father and brother at a natural spring near the West Bank when they were hit by an “improvised explosive device.” The brother was reportedly on life support while her father was said to be conscious but still hospitalized.

The article goes on to state the following:

According to Haaretz, the Israeli army has not determined if the bomb was hidden or thrown at them. A manhunt for those responsible was underway.

Tlaib expressed condolences for the slain Israeli girl in response to a tweet posted by the left-leaning anti-Israeli occupation group IfNotNow, which claimed the “rightward drift of Israeli and US govts make the situation less safe for Israelis and Palestinians.”

She wrote, “This is absolutely tragic & horrible. My heart goes out to Rina’s family. More than ever we need to support nonviolent approaches to ending the Israeli occupation and guaranteeing equal rights for all. Extremism that puts innocent lives at risk moves us no closer to peace.”

Many Twitter users slammed Tlaib for her statement.  International lawyer and political analyst Arsen Ostrovsky wrote, “This is vile! Have you no shame? How dare you blame the murder of this beautiful teenage Israeli girl #RinaShnerb on the ‘occupation’? Can you not just blame the Palestinian terrorists that took her young life? This only underscores Israel was right to deny you entry!”

Another Twitter user responded: ““we need to support nonviolent approaches” said congresswoman @RashidaTlaib after planning a trip to Israel w/Miftah Org that supported terror acts against Israel, glorified woman and congratulated them for joining the “ranks of resistance movement” stating terror attack they did.”

Another outraged Twitter user wrote, “What do you mean ‘ending the Israeli occupation’? The land belongs to Israel! Arabs have HUGE areas of land to live in, in the Middle East,but those who do live in Israel have ‘equal rights’.”
