Rashida Tlaib Wears Antisemitic Shirt While Promoting Linda Sarsour’s Book

You know what they say: Haters gonna hate.

Antisemites gonna antisemite.

Democrat “Squad” member and Bernie Sanders surrogate, Rep. Rashida Tlaib(D-MI) posted a smiling photograph of herself promoting a book written by fellow “Bernie Broad” Linda Sarsour. Both Rep. Tlaib and Sarsour have been criticized for their vocal criticism of Israel along with their support of Palestinians in the ongoing Middle East conflict.

Rep. Tlaib and fellow Squad member, Rep. Ilhan Omar(D-MN) were banned from entering Israel because of their support of the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, as well as their itinerary, which included appearing with anti-Israel groups.

Earlier this year, Tlaib was accused by the Anti-Defamation League of “blood libel” for retweeting a false accusation that Israelis were responsible for the death of a 7-year old Palestinian boy. She later deleted the tweet. Rep. Tlaib has repeatedly singled out Israel while excusing the role of Hamas as they fire rockets into Israeli territory.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib has a long history of anti-Semitic rhetoric and behavior, meeting with terror supporters and even writing for famous anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan’s blog, so it’s no surprise that she would hob-nob with other anti-Semites like Sarsour. 

Congresswoman Tlaib favors a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and even stuck a sticky note on the map in her office over Israel with the word “Palestine” written on it.

This shirt expresses that same sentiment.

Tlaib, one of Congress’s leading critics of Israel, was pictured in the t-shirt while promoting a recently published book by Linda Sarsour, another outspoken critic of the Jewish state who serves as a surrogate for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign.

The shirt portrays present-day Israel as a Palestinian state. Shirts of this nature have been a mainstay of pro-Palestinian activists who reject a two-state solution and argue that the world’s only Jewish state should not exist.

An online ad for the shirt reads, “Stand in solidarity with Palestine by wearing this beautiful Palestinian tee shirt. An outlined map of Palestine is filled with red, white, and green Arabic letters that look stunning from a distance and spell the word Palestine up close. A patterned shemagh wraps around the neck of the Palestinian state like the brave soldiers whose boots stand on the dusty ground.”

Yes, those brave, brave soldiers who shoot at Israeli kindergarten children. 

She’s just so awful.

The thing is, Tlaib, Omar, and Sarsour are all repeatedly being accused of antisemitism and all of them are surrogates on the Bernie Sanders campaign. Increasingly, Bernie is becoming the Jeremy Corbyn of the United States and it’s even more appalling since Bernie is ethnically Jewish and briefly lived in Israel. But he’s refusing to distance himself from these antisemites.

As the old saying goes, “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.”
