Ingraham: 'Anti-Israel Bias' of Some Incoming House Dems 'Downright Disturbing'
In her Angle segment on Tuesday, Laura Ingraham said that the "anti-Israel bias" shown by some prominent newly-elected House Democrats is "downright disturbing."
Among the representatives-elect, Ingraham pointed out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.).
Ingraham called out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's remark over the summer, in which she criticized Israel’s "occupation” of the Palestinian territories.
The self-described Democratic socialist was subsequently ridiculed for fumbling over her words and acknowledging that she isn't the "expert at geopolitics on this issue."
Ingraham also added that in 2012 Omar tweeted that Israel, a U.S. ally, "has hypnotized the world" and also called it an "apartheid" regime.
Drawing attention to the apartheid Israeli regime is far from hating Jews. You are a hateful sad man, I pray to Allah you get the help you need and find happiness. https://t.co/SvEXjlxlEN

"One doubts that this is what women had in mind when they voted for these female candidates, but you never know," Ingraham said.
Tlaib endorses a one-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, Ingraham noted, and said that "separate but equal does not work."
"The only way to feel safe is when you look across the table and say they deserve to feel safe in their own country," Tlaib said in an August interview.
Ingraham called out the "radical ideas" of incoming Democrats, including Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), who she said is a"leftist on the warpath against white men," noting Pressley said she wants to shake up "most decision-making tables that are dominated by white men."
"If the Kavanaugh circus proved anything, it's that women don't like to see people unfairly tried in a public setting, particularly when the charges are politically motivated," Ingraham observed.
