RASHIDA TLAIB’S TIES TO ANTI-SEMITISM RUN DEEPER THAN PREVIOUSLY KNOWN: UPDATED
Was there ever any doubt?
Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s ties to anti-Semitism run deeper than previously known, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.
Tlaib, part of a heralded freshman class of House Democrats, has already come under scrutiny over her positions on Israel and ties to fringe figures. But TheDCNF’s investigation uncovered additional ties to anti-Semitism.
Tlaib is a member of the Facebook group “Palestinian American Congress,” where members often demonize Jews. The group’s founder, Palestinian activist Maher Abdel-qader, was a key fundraiser for Tlaib and organized campaign events for her around the country.
In January 2018, Abdel-qader shared an anti-Semitic video that claimed Jews aren’t actually Jewish, and invented their historical claim to Israel and secretly control the media.
The video, which described Jews as “satanic,” also questioned whether 6 million Jews actually died in the Holocaust.
“Research the truth about the Holocaust, and you’ll definitely start to question what you thought you knew,” the video’s narrator says.
Abdel-qader shared the video both on his personal Facebook page and within the group that now includes Tlaib.
Nobody who's been paying attention should be the least bit surprised. How long will she be able to get away with it? How long will the Democratic party and the media talk about "accusations" of anti-Semitism without reporting any of the evidence behind those accusations?
As long as she remains a Democrat.
