Obama unleashed a torrent of hatred and bigotry when he advanced the spread of antisemitism. U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.) has a long history of antisemitic abuse. Adding to her anti-Israel résumé, she previously accused Israel of being an “apartheid” state. I expect the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party Representative will be shilling for returning ISIS fighters in no short order.
“It is time to stand with Palestinians, Americans, Israelis and people around the world to reject the destructive, dehumanizing, and anti-peace policies of Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu and [US] President [Donald] Trump.”’
McCollum is a liar.
Meeting with fronts for terror. AMP is US Muslim Brotherhood and to the Hamas support infrastructure in the US.
Muslims convicted in America of supporting terrorist groups are heroes and the victims of injustice, a national convention of Palestinian activists was told. In addition, speakers said the fight for a Palestinian state will center on American college campuses.. American Muslims for Palestine (AMP)’s conference on Palestinian activism in America attracted more than 2,000 people Thanksgiving weekend in Chicago. Last year’s AMP’s conference revealed the organization’s goal to delegitimize the State of Israel in America. This year’s conference reinforced that message, while taking it a step further. At the opening ceremony, Jamal Said, an imam at the Mosque Foundation in Chicago (Bridgeview Mosque) hailed “the activists and freedom fighters who gave up their personal ambitions and their own lives so our cause may live.” Said was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Hamas financing trial. The U.S. Treasury froze HLF assets in 2001 after concluding its money went to Hamas.

New legislation in Congress criticizes U.S. military assistance to Israel
By Omri Nhamias, J Post, May 1, 2019 20:4
WASHINGTON – New legislation in Congress is seeking to “promote human rights for Palestinian children living under Israeli military occupation,” and require that “United States funds do not support military detention, interrogation, abuse or ill-treatment of Palestinian children and for other purposes.”
Congresswoman Betty McCollum, a Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party Representative (DFL) of Minnesota, sponsored the legislation. In a press release, she said that “Israel’s system of military juvenile detention is state-sponsored child abuse designed to intimidate and terrorize Palestinian children and their families.”“It must be condemned, but it is equally outrageous that US tax dollars in the form of military aid to Israel are permitted to sustain what is clearly a gross human rights violation against children,” she added.The legislation includes a sense of Congress that “the detention, prosecution and ill-treatment of Palestinian children living under military occupation in a military court system that lacks basic and fundamental guarantees of due process by the Government of Israel violates international law and internationally recognized standards of human rights,” and “is contrary to the values of the American people.”
Rep. McCollum cited the NGO B’Tselem in her press release, saying that the organization “repeatedly documented that children are subject to abuse and, in some cases, torture.”
In addition, the bill is seeking to establish a special fund under the name “Human Rights Monitoring and Palestinian Child Victims of Israeli Military Detention Fund,” and to authorize an annual amount of $19 million for “non-governmental organization monitoring of human rights abuses associated with Israel’s military detention of children.”
“I strongly believe there is a growing consensus among the American people that the Palestinian people deserve justice, equality, human rights and the right to self-determination,” the Congresswoman wrote. “It is time to stand with Palestinians, Americans, Israelis and people around the world to reject the destructive, dehumanizing, and anti-peace policies of Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu and [US] President [Donald] Trump.”
