Jihadi Rep. Rashida Tlaib continues to debase the United States Congress, and continues to attack the Jews. Relentlessly. Democrat Party leaders such as Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer refuse to take any against Tlaib for her blatant Jew-hatred, and for her support of jihad terror. #Jexodus! #Trump2020!
Tlaib Defends Anti-Israel Activist Who Was Voted Off Women’s March Board
By The Washington Free Beacon, September 22, 2019:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) on Friday came to the defense of an anti-Israel activist voted off the Women’s March board earlier in the week, telling her, “we have the truth on our side.”
Tlaib took to Twitter to defend Zahra Billoo, the executive director of the San Francisco Bay area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Billoo, who was voted off the board after serving for two days, sent out a 25-tweet thread about the vote, where she blamed an “Islamophobic smear campaign” and “right-wingers” for the scrutiny she and her colleagues received.
“#FreePalestine always sis! They won’t silence us for speaking out against human rights violations,” Tlaib tweeted. “They will lie, smear our names and call us anti this and that, but we always be pro- humanity & we have the truth on our side. Stay strong @ZahraBilloo.”

Billoo, who has been a vocal supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), said the campaign against her was “driven by people who oppose me and my work challenging the occupation of Palestine, our country’s perpetuation of unjust and endless wars, and law enforcement operations targeting the American Muslim community.”
She has sent out several controversial tweets over the last decade, including tweets attacking U.S. troops, Memorial Day, and Israel. Back in 2016, she quote-tweeted a Twitter user asking her whether she believes it’s “wrong” for the United States to honor soldiers on Memorial Day. She replied, “You think we should honor people who commit war crimes?”
She also refers to Israel as “Apartheid Israel” multiple times on her Twitter account and claims Israel “commits war crimes as a hobby” and “kills children as a hobby.”
This isn’t the first time Tlaib has sided with someone vehemently opposed to Israel. Tlaib met with anti-Israel activist Joe Catron during American Muslims for Palestine Advocacy Day back in April. Catron and the New Jersey AMP chapter support the the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement which wages economic boycotts on the Jewish state.
The Anti-Defamation League previously stated the BDS movement is “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence” and has been critical of AMP for helping promote anti-Semitism.
Tlaib also took a picture back in January with Abbas Hamideh, a “Palestinian right of return” activist with a history of calling Israel a “terrorist entity.” He attended Tlaib’s swearing-in ceremony and a private dinner afterwards.

Anti-Semite Of The Week: Zahra Billoo, the LindaSarour2.0 Edition
By March Oster, JTA, September 21, 2019:
Billoo is a supporter of the antisemitic Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement and was a speaker at the 2018 annual conference for American Muslims for Palestine (AMP).
On May 13, 2014, Billoo tweeted: “‘Israel ‘defending’ itself from Palestinians is analogous to Nazi Germany defending itself from Jewish uprising.’”
On July 24, 2010, Billoo tweeted: “RT @beatsNOTbombs: No need for a holocaust museum, seeing as Israel has taken it upon itself to recreate it. #Israel #Nazis.”
On July 14, 2014, Billoo tweeted: “Blaming Hamas for firing rockets at [Apartheid] Israel is like blaming a woman for punching her rapist. #FreePalestine.”
On July 5, 2014, Billoo tweeted: “‘Israel without any clear evidence accused and held Hamas responsible for the killing of the 3 settlers who were reservists in the IDF.’”
On April 20, 2013, Billoo tweeted: “Hamas was democratically elected to govern Palestine.”
On January 8, 2009, the day Hezbollah fired several rockets into Israel injuring 5 Israelis, Billoo tweeted: “is torn. The ish just hit the fan… AH [Alhamdulillah – Praise God] for Hezbollah having the courage to do what the Arab governments won’t!”
The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) is an Islamist U.S. based organization whose members were indicted for funnelling funds to Hamas in the guise of humanitarian aid. The men were all convicted and sentenced in 2009 to federal prison terms ranging from 15 to 65 years.
On February 23, 2013, Billoo tweeted: “Not a single penny of the Holy Land Foundation’s money ever went to terrorism.”
On February 23, 2013, Billoo also tweeted: “@AntiCAIR thank you so much for your genius calculations, except the government never proved that HLF money actually went to terrorism.”
On May 25, 2018, Billoo tweeted: “doesn’t see any difference between American youth leaving the country to join ISIS or the IDF. Both are murderous, war crime committing, terrorist entities.”
On August 6, 2015, Billoo tweeted: “I’ll call ISIS “Radical Islamic Terrorists” if you’ll call the IDF “Radical Jewish Terrorists”? #GOPDebate #ApartheidIsrael #Gaza”
On November 11, 2018, Billoo tweeted: “the Israeli Defense Forces, or the IDF, are no better than ISIS. They are both genocidal terrorist organizations.”
