Doesn’t this woman have a district to attend to or did she just run for office to attack Jews?
Israel should not allow this vicious pro-Jihad neo-Nazi to step one foot into Israel. American tax payers should not be funding trips that allow Rep. Tlaib to legitimize Jihad terror against Israel and pro-Israel Jewish Americans.
Rep. Tlaib recruiting Members for ‘Congressional Delegation’ to West Bank, Jewish Insider, May 7th, 2019:
The trip is said to conflict with AIPAC/AIEF’s freshmen junket
Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is organizing a trip to the Palestinian Territories, slated for the August recess, competing with AIPAC/AIEF’s trip to Israel for freshmen members, traditionally chaperoned by House leadership.
Asked on Tuesday if she’ll be going on the AIEF trip to Israel this summer, Congresswoman Tlaib said, “No, I have my own trip” and handed Jewish Insider a flier advertising the trip. Arranged by the “Humpty Dumpty Institute,” the leaflet bills the trip as a “congressional delegation to the Occupied Territories in Palestine,” taking place August 17-22, 2019.
Rep. Tlaib, the first female Palestinian-American member of Congress, floated the idea for this trip in an interview with the Intercept in December. Rep. Tlaib told JI on Tuesday that her goal in traveling to the West Bank is to help “people see the human impact on Palestinians, and what an opportunity of value to have a sitting congress-member that has a living grandmother in the Occupied Territories.”
Rep. Tlaib’s use of the phrase “Congressional delegation” is notable. If accurate, a CODEL would imply that the trip is officially supported by Congress, and paid for with congressional funds. According to a congressional source, that would mean that the funding was approved by the Speaker of the House and the relevant Chair and Ranking Member of a committee.
