Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib photographed with genocidal Hezbollah operative who says death to Israel, Jews should return to camps


The Democrat party is going off the rails celebrating Nazis such as new Democrat Michigan Rep. Tlaib, who surrounds herself with Jew-haters such as the Hezb’Allah activist who calls for death to Israel and says that “Zionist terrorist” Jews should return to camps.

Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib photographed with pro-Hezbollah activist who says Israel has no right to exist

Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., was photographed with a Palestinian activist who praised the terrorist group Hezbollah, said Israel did not have the right to exist, and has called for Israeli “Zionist terrorist” Jews to return to Poland, where roughly three million Jews were killed during the Holocaust.

Tlaib has been celebrated by Democrats and the media as one of the first Muslim women to be elected to Congress and touted as a testament to the diversity of the freshman class. Though she received a lot of national attention due to the silly controversy over her profane remark about impeaching President Trump, she’s quickly compiling a record of promoting anti-Semitism.

Over the weekend, Abbas Hamideh tweeted out of photo of himself with a smiling Tlaib, writing, “I was honored to be at Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib swearing in ceremony in #Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country.”

A number of Twitter users led by Peter Hasson flagged toxic past tweets of Hamideh.

In a 2015 tweet, he wrote of the leader of the terrorist group Hezbollah, “Always loved this heroic resistance leader! Long live Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah!”

On another occasion, he tweeted, “They tried so hard to demonize #Nasrallah and #Hezbollah and we said fuck you! #Failed.”

He also tweeted that Israel had no right to exist.

Just last night, he tweeted that Israeli Jews should return to Poland, where the largest number of Jews were massacred during the Holocaust.

He also took aim at those who reacted negatively to his picture with Tlaib, writing, “Criminal Zionists are going apeshit over one picture. Imagine when we take selfies in a liberated Jerusalem?”

Defenders of Tlaib would no doubt try to argue that it’s no big deal, politicians take photos with supporters all the time without looking at their social media histories.

That may be a more compelling argument if this weren’t a long-standing pattern of Tlaib, a supporter of the boycott Israel movement who since being elected has been peddling hatred for Israel and employing anti-Semitic tropes.

Tlaib defended Marc Lamont Hill after CNN fired him for comments in which he called for the elimination of Israel and endorsed violent “resistance” against Jews. Just last week, she unleashed an anti-Semitic dual loyalty smear.

That she would associate with a pro-Hezbollah activist does not tell us much we don’t already know about Tlaib at this point. What has become increasing revealing, however, is the reluctance of any fellow Democrats to condemn Tlaib’s peddling of anti-Semitism masquerading as criticism of Israel. That tells us that they assume (probably rightly) that their base is perfectly comfortable with it.
