CNN Panelist Defends Tlaib And Omar, Blows Up While Seemingly Excusing Palestinian Terrorism

Liberal CNN panelist blows up when confronted over Palestinian terrorism.

Beinart: “Palestinians don’t have to be saints in order to have the basic rights that all of us take for granted. Miftah has said things that I disagree with.
