Move your family to one of these teeny towns and you just might double its population!
Looking for the smallest town in every state? Here, you'll find the least-populated small towns in the U.S., according to the United States 2010 Census. While it can be hard to believe, many of these teeny towns have just one, two, or three lonesome locals. Besides the bucket list opportunities, though, you might be wondering why you should bother taking a trip to any of these places. Well, for starters, you'll be surrounded by peace and quiet for miles and miles. And just think of the postcard opportunities! But there's also plenty to see, do, and enjoy just outside many of these small towns. From scenic mountain towns to pretty lakeside villages and, yes, a few quirky destinations thrown in for good measure, there's something here for everyone. Still, only one of these little locales can take the top spot as the absolute teeniest. The 29-person Hawaiian town of Manele isn't quite small enough, nor is the 10-person, itty-bitty city known as McMullen, Alabama. Even the one-person village of Hobart Bay, Alaska has some competition (Willow Canyon, Arizona also has just one inhabitant!). When you're through, Watch Hill, Rhode Island—population 154—might just start to feel like a big city.
Just Me: Tlaib claims she did not chose the organization to sponsor her trip, and that Miftah has sponsored trips made by five other Congress members. Omar and Tlaib argued the scrutiny over the organization are distractions that have nothing to do with their agenda. During the press conference, Omar seemed to instigate anti-Israel sentiments by questioning the lifesaving aid Israel receives from the U.S. Tlaib and Omar were barred from visiting Israel due to their public support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction movement, who’s objective is to eliminate Israel as a nation. The Israeli government defended their decision to block the members of Congress by pointing to pro-terrorist activist group Miftah sponsoring the trip. Tlaib was later allowed to visit her grandmother on the West Bank, but rejected the invitation. Despite attempts to portray Miftah as mainstreamish, the reality, as David French notes, is unambiguously ugly. A few years back, Miftah published a bizarre article accusing “the Jews [of using] the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover,” the classic blood libel. The group celebrates terrorists, including an evil woman who helped murder 13 Israeli children. In an article titled “Let Us Honor Our Own,” a Miftah contributor describes Dalal Al Mughrabi as “a Palestinian fighter who was killed during a military operation against Israel in 1978” and as one of the Palestinian people’s “national heroes.” The so-called “military operation” is more widely known as the “Coastal Road Massacre,” a bus hijacking that resulted in the deaths of 38 Israeli civilians, including 13 children. Al Mughrabi is hardly the only terrorist Miftah celebrates. It described female suicide bomber Wafa Idrees as the “the beginning of a string of Palestinian women dedicated to sacrificing their lives for the cause.” It singles out for recognition Hanadi Jaradat, a woman who blew herself up in a restaurant, killing 21 people (including four children). The founder of Miftah herself, Ms. Ashrawi, excused jihadist violence by telling an interviewer that “you cannot somehow adopt the language of either the international community or the occupier by describing anybody who resists as terrorist.”
