Rashida Tlaib Tag

In a recent post, I documented how American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) ejected me from its annual conference Thanksgiving weekend because it was afraid I would provide negative coverage. For background on the harassing treatment I received, see Fearing Negative Coverage, ‘American Muslims for Palestine’ Conference Ejects Legal Insurrection Reporter. Now we know why AMP wanted to cleanse the audience of media who could report accurately on what was going on: The AMP conference was an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hatefest, and the keynote speaker was Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib, who has worked with the group on many occasions.

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who is Jewish, received the endorsement of anti-Israel Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) over the weekend. Then on Monday Sanders announced his own "quid pro quo" to Israel. He even said he would use American aid to Israel as "leverage" to force the country to "change their behavior."

Rep. Rashida Tlaib gave a teary-eyed statement about her experiences at Israeli checkpoints. It's unclear of the time frame. First she said it was when she was a young child and visiting her grandmother, and then she mentioned her American mother going through a checkpoint, and her "then husband" being searched after a bus was stopped.

Every now and then Bill Maher hits a left-wing dogma squarely on the head and it's particularly persuasive coming from someone who is on the left. We've covered several such occasions, even if most of the time we disagree with Maher. Maher just did it again with regard to the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, setting off a fury of recrimination from Rep. Rashida Tlaib and other anti-Israel activists.

The Palestinian grandmother of Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib wished "ruin" on President Donald Trump in an ongoing controversy over Michigan lawmaker's proposed visit to Israel. "May God ruin him," Tlaib's grandmother was quoted saying by news agency Reuters.

Yesterday, Israel denied visas for Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, after pressure from Trump, under a law permitting the government to bar entry to advocates of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The decision kicked off a firestorm, including false accusations by former Democrat Vice Presidential candidate and current Senator Tim Kaine that Israel had imposed a "Muslim ban".

Anti-Israel representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, both of whom support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement (though they denied that while running for office), are planning a trip to Israel. BDS is widely recognized as anti-Semitic and subterfuge for the destruction of Israel. Both also credibly have been accused of making anti-Semitic statements themselves.

Imagine investing $200,000 into a restaurant, but then turn around and indefinitely delay its opening because people threatened to boycott your business and bullied your family members. That's the decision BurgerIM franchisee Sam Zahr had to make for the safety of his family and employees. He also didn't want to divide the Dearborn, Michigan, community.

The recent controversy regarding Rep. Rashida Tlaib focused on her use of the term “calming feeling" regarding the Holocaust. That was an error by those focusing on the term, and a deliberate distraction by those defending the term. The reality of Tlaib's statement was much worse, because it used Holocaust inversion and revisionism to portray Palestinians as the victims of the Holocaust. I wrote about Tlaib's Holocaust inversion and revisionism:
