The recent statement from Israel hater Rashida Tlaib (who will certainly win a congressional seat in November) is another example as to why Israel needs to start preparing for life without military aid from the United States. The anti-Semitic Rashida Tlaib pledged to slash military aid to Israel. Tlaib also endorsed a one-state solution, knowing full well that this would eliminate Israel’s Jewish character. Tlaib is also very likely aware that Jews were ethnically cleansed from every Muslim majority country in the Arab world.
The Democrat Party has become a radical far-left party. The Democrat Party will likely move further to the left in the future, since that is what their voting base demands. More Israel-hating Democrats will certainly emerge in the coming years. Much of the Democrat Party (Jews and non-Jews alike) have disdain for Israel and for Zionism. “Progressive” Democrats such as Bernie Sanders, Keith Ellison, Ilhan Omar, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will express that disdain openly. The more “Liberal” Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Kamala Harris will be more discreet about their hatred of Israel. They know that their discreetness will get them a significant payoff from the morons (Jewish Democrats and anti-Zionists) at AIPAC.
Israel is a wealthy country. Israel will be much wealthier when the current military package expires in 2028. It is not in Israel’s interest to accept military aid from a political party that has such contempt for their country. A future Democrat administration may eliminate Israel’s military aid completely, or use the military aid as a way to blackmail Israel (as Joe Biden once tried to do) into accepting a dangerous demand or agreement. Israel should expect that their current military aid package will be their last one. Israel should also start planning for this day accordingly.
“Michigan congressional candidate Rashida Tlaib endorses one-state solution, pledges to slash Israeli military aid,” JTA,
(JTA) — A Michigan Democrat who is all but certain to become a congresswoman said she would “absolutely” vote against military aid to Israel, sparking criticism from a Jewish Democratic group.
The candidate, Rashida Tlaib, also said in an interview that she favors a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as opposed to a two-state solution that would establish a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, recently won the Democratic nomination in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District. The Republicans are not running a candidate in the Detroit-area district.
She is one of two Muslim women likely to be the first to be elected to Congress. The other is Ilhan Omar, who handily won her Democratic primary Tuesday in a Minneapolis-area district.
Asked whether she would consider slashing military aid to Israel in a Monday interview with Britain’s Channel 4, Tlaib responded, “Absolutely, if it has something to do with inequality and not access to people having justice. For me, U.S. aid should be leverage. I will be using my position in Congress so that no country, not one, should be able to get aid from the U.S. when they still promote that kind of injustice.
“So much is about ‘let’s choose a side,’” she continued, opining on the Israeli-Arab conflict. “I am for making sure that every single person there has every right to thrive.”
In a subsequent interview Tuesday with In These Times magazine, Tlaib endorsed a one-state solution and supported the free speech rights of BDS activists, who push for Boycotts, Divstment and Sanctions against Israel.
“One state,” she said in response to a question about whether she supports a one- or two-state solution. “It has to be one state. Separate but equal does not work. I’m only 42 years old but my teachers were of that generation that marched with Martin Luther King. This whole idea of a two-state solution, it doesn’t work.”
