“I am the only Palestinian American serving in Congress, and my perspective is needed here now more than ever. I will not be silenced and I will not let anyone distort my words.” These were Rashida Tlaib’s remarks to as she seeks to rise in the Democratic Party by taking advantage of the war in Israel. Since then, the representative from Michigan has been the subject of criticism for her attacks against the Jewish community, to such an extent that her statements have led her to be one of the three people nominated for ‘Anti-Semite of the Year.’
The non-partisan organization StopAntisemitism published the list of candidates for this distinction, which includes Tlaib, model Gigi Hadid and senior Hamas official Ismail Haniyeh. Anyone can vote for who they consider to be the most antisemitic person of the year through the institution’s website.
Since Hamas began carrying out its attacks against Israel, Tlaib, who is a member of the radical Democratic Party group known as “The Squad” went so far as to call the Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) counteroffensive a “genocide.”
It was also revealed that Tlaib is part of a secret group called the Palestinian American Congress, where Hamas terrorists are “glorified” and that she is connected to six Hamas-linked activists who helped her raise funds for her 2018 congressional campaign.
