The Company Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib Keeps
When you read this article, ask yourself, why aren't any mainstream news organizations investigating this?
No, there is no insidious conspiracy. But there is a fear of being called "Islamophobic" for pointing out some of Rashida Tlaib's troubling stances and a lack of concern over anti-Semtism coming (very strongly) from the left side of the political aisle. Reporters don't want to see the bigotry from their own side.
Tlaib's allies include:
Rasha Mubarak, CAIR’s Florida’s Orlando Regional Director and the President of Young Democrats of Orange County (Florida).
In July 2014, CAIR-Florida co-sponsored a pro-Hamas rally held outside the Israeli Consulate in downtown Miami, where rally goers repeatedly shouted, “We are Hamas” and “Let’s go Hamas.” Hamas is a designated terror organization in the U.S. In 2015, CAIR-Florida held an annual fundraising dinner, in Orlando, featuring Chicago-area Imam, Kifah Mustapha as a guest speaker. Both Mustapha and CAIR were named as co-conspirators by the United States government at the Hamas-fundraising trial of the Holy Land Foundation.
In 2014, during a rally in Orlando, Florida, a man by the name of Said Lufti (Rasha Mubarak’s uncle) was asked on camera about a Hezbollah flag that was being carried at the rally. Mubarak tried to stop Lufti from talking by saying (in Arabic), “Uncle, don’t talk to them they are Jews.”
And don't forget:
In August 2018, the left-wing group, J Street officially withdrew its support for Tlaib. Its initial endorsement came about after an extensive vetting process, which included personal interviews. J Street requires support for a two-state solution and opposition to BDS in order to grant its endorsement. It withdrew its support after she publicly endorsed a one-state solution, as well as the BDS Movement against Israel.
Too extreme for J Street. That should tell us something.
