Rashida Tlaib is a product of the Palestinian education system, despite being raised in Michigan. The level of Jew-hatred taught in Palestinian schools and mosques is at a level that is reminiscent of Nazi-Germany.
In fact, prominent Palestinians have openly embraced Nazis (here, here, here) for decades. Therefore, it should not surprise anyone that Rashida Tlaib is a virulent hater of Jews and the state of Israel. It is despicable of Nancy Pelosi to allow Tlaib’s blatant anti-Semitism to go unpunished, despite receiving the support of the vast majority of American Jewish voters.
However, Jewish Democrats also bear significant responsibility for the ascension of not only Tlaib, but also Ilhan Omar, AOC, Keith Ellison, Bernie Sanders, and many other Jew-hating Democrats. Jewish Democrats have not made the Democrat Party pay a political price (through votes and donations) for their acceptance of anti-Semites. That is why the anti-Semitism in the Democrat Party will only get worse in the coming years.
No Jewish American with a brain or with dignity should support the Democrat Party in any way. #Jexodus.
Rashida Tlaib’s History of Antisemitism
The second Democratic Party presidential primary debate will be held in downtown Detroit, Michigan, next week — within the boundaries of the 13th congressional district, represented by first-term Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
By JOEL B. POLLAK, Breitbart, July 26, 2019:
The Detroit metro region includes a large Muslim population, and Tlaib — together with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) — is the first Muslim woman elected to Congress.
Accordingly, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a press statement on Thursday asking for CNN’s debate moderators to ask about the “Muslim Travel Ban” and President Donald Trump’s cap on the number of refugees.
But given Tlaib’s extreme anti-Israel rhetoric, some of which has arguably crossed the line into antisemitism, CNN might do better to ask about the Democratic Party’s failure to address the rise of antisemitism in its midst.
Here is a summary of Tlaib’s record:
Opposing Israel’s right to exist: Tlaib does not believe Israel has a right to exist. She advocates for a “one-state solution” in which a Palestinian state would replace Israel. The Jewish state is the only state in the world that Talib wants to dismantle. Her position cost her the support of far-left J Street, which generally opposes Israel but prefers to maintain the façade of support for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Accusing pro-Israel members of Congress of dual loyalty: In January, Tlaib tweeted that Senators who supported a pro-Israel bill “forgot what country they represent.” The remark evoked of antisemitic themes of “dual loyalty” — that is, the idea that Jews are not patriotic, or that support for Israel detracts from love for America. The American Jewish Committee tweeted a photo of Tlaib wrapping herself in the Palestinian flag.
Saying the Holocaust gave her a “calming feeling”: Tlaib told an interviewer that the Holocaust gave her a “calming feeling” because Palestinians had allowed “a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time.” The opposite was true: Palestinians wanted Jewish refugees excluded, and Palestinian leader Hajj Amin al-Husseini collaborated with the Nazis.
Comparing border facilities to “concentration camps”: Earlier this month, Tlaib endorsed the claim by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) that the U.S. is running “concentration camps” along the border with Mexico, a claim that noted legal scholar (and Democrat) Alan Dershowitz has said is a form of Holocaust denial. Both the U.S. Holocaust Museum and Israel’s Yad Vashem memorial have opposed the comparison. MORE
