    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) promoted propaganda over the weekend that falsely portrayed children as having died from Israeli military operations when, in reality, they died a decade ago from fighting in Syria.

    The false claim that Omar promoted on her X account originated from self-described "investigative journalist" Sulaiman Ahmed.

    "CHILD GENOCIDE IN PALESTINE," the post, which included a photo of dead children, claimed. "614 Palestinian children murdered by the Israeli IOF Forces."

    Omar then shared the false claim to her nearly three million followers on X.

    The reality is that the photo is from an August 2013 article in National Geographic and it shows children in Damascus, Syria, "shortly after they succumbed to chemical weapon poisoning."

    Omar faced backlash online for promoting the propaganda.

    Human rights lawyer Arsen Ostrovsky slammed Omar, writing: "Where @IlhanMN is now literally RT'ing fake news! This is a horrific picture of kids murdered by chemical weapons in Syria. She is claiming this is Gaza. She is just so ravaged with Jew hatred."

    NBC News deputy tech editor Ben Goggin weighed in: "Ilhan Omar reposting recycled imagery passed off as from Gaza. Sulaiman has repeatedly posted misinformation throughout this entire conflict."

    NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck also took a shot at Sulaiman, writing: "Sulaiman Ahmed is a notorious peddler of not only disinformation and anti-Semitism, but lies about Jews and Israel writ large."

    "This is a truly despicable guy during a week where many, many people illustrated hate and repugnant behavior," he added.

    Former New York Democratic lawmaker Dov Hikind called out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) over the matter as she complained about "misinformation" on X about the war.

    "The level of misinformation in all directions at this moment is incredibly high, especially on this platform," AOC posted on X. "If you see a claim, photo, or video that triggers a strong emotional reaction, take a moment to pause and check for veracity/confirmation from multiple sources."

    "@AOC ought to have a word with @IlhanMN about her pathetic promotion of an image of dead babies from Syria killed by Assad to try and malign Israel," he wrote. "But of course AOC is a HYPOCRITE just as Ilhan is a propagandist!"

    The Israeli government also showed a video in which Palestinians appeared to try to pass off a doll as a dead child as Israel was conducting airstrikes against terrorists.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
