Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) scolded Israel — specifically Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — after Israeli forces launched a coordinated strike on Sunday to free two hostages.
The two hostages — two of more than 130 who have been held in Gaza by Hamas terrorists since the October 7th massacre — were rescued in Rafah thanks to the efforts of the Israeli Defense Forces and Shin Bet. Bowman argued that the rescue mission was proof that Netanyahu was unfit to lead.
“While we watched the Super Bowl, Netanyahu launched a wave of attacks and killed innocent civilians in Rafah — a place where many refugees fled for relative safety — despite warnings from Biden. Netanyahu’s government is unfit to lead anything and cannot receive support,” Bowman claimed.
