Rashida Tlaib’s vile antisemitism has increased two-fold since StopAntisemitism featured the Congresswoman as its “Antisemite of the Week” back in 2019.
In January 2019, Tlaib voted against a bill aimed at striking down Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) measures against Israel. She claimed this bill was created under the guise of dual loyalty— a dangerous antisemitic trope used against Jewish people that claims they are not loyal citizens of where they live and are tied to a global Israeli agenda.
In December 2020, Tlaib quickly deleted a retweet that included the phrase, “From the River to the Sea – Palestine will be Free” — a genocidal call for the elimination of the Jewish state and its citizens.
In September 2021, Tlaib voted against the Iron Dome Funding Bill. She was the only member in opposition to voice her reasoning from the floor, going on an antisemitic tirade against the Jewish State which included false allegations of apartheid living.
In July 2023, Tlaib and eight other members of Congress voted against a bill that asserted the State of Israel is not a racist or apartheid state. The bill also expressed Congress’ rejection of all forms of antisemitism and xenophobia.
On October 7th, Hamas violated a ceasefire agreement, leading to the slaughter and abduction of innocent civilians. Tlaib promptly held Israel responsible for these abhorrent acts of terror. As Israel defended itself, Tlaib falsely accused them of hospital bombings, which were later revealed to be the result of a failed rocket launch by Palestinian terrorists.
Despite evidence to the contrary, she persisted in blaming Israel and did not advocate for the release of American hostages in Gaza. On November 3, 2023, Tlaib accused President Biden of betrayal and endorsed false claims of genocide, connecting it to Israel’s actions against Hamas. In a subsequent tweet, she stated that “From the River to the Sea” is a cry for freedom, contradicting its historical association with the elimination of the Jewish state.
Thankfully, on November 7, 2023, one month after the savage Hamas terror attacks on Israel, Rashida Tlaib was censured for her remarks glorifying genocide against Israel. She became only the 26th member of the House of Representatives in U.S. history to be censured by her peers.
