McCarthy Schools Tlaib — Flips Anti-Israel Demonstration Into Celebration Of Israel

[NOTE: This article may contain commentary reflecting the opinion of the author.]

Rashida Tlaib has a special burning hatred in her heart for the state of Israel. That’s not an opinion, she has openly demonstrated her hatred for Israel on more than one occasion from Day One in her term as legislator.

We’ve assembled a [partial] collection of her more infamous moments which you can find at the bottom of this article, after cited sources.

This coming Sunday marks the 75th Anniversary of Israel becoming an independent modern nation. Naturally, that day is remembered with excitement by Jewish people and Israelis. Not everyone, however, remembers it so fondly.

That’s where Rashida Tlaib enters this story:

Far-left “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) will host an event with anti-Israel groups at the Capitol Building on Wednesday that decries the founding of the Jewish State as a “catastrophe.”
The event titled “Nakba 75 & the Palestinian People” uses the Arabic term for the events surrounding the founding of Israel – Nakba – which means “catastrophe.”
“May 15th marks 75 years since the beginning of the Nakba, which means ‘catastrophe,’” reads a description of the event, which will be held at the Capitol Visitor Center.
“Seventy-five years ago, Zionist militias and the new Israeli military violently expelled approximately three-quarters of all Palestinians from their homes and homeland in what became the state of Israel.”
The organizers of the event also say they hope to educate members of Congress and their staff on the “ongoing Nakba to which Israel continues to subject Palestinians.”

Tonight was going to be Rashida’s antisemitic shindig.

But Leader McCarthy, owing to his unique role as Leader of the House is holding the trump card, so to speak, on who gets to do what in the building.

He pulled rank and threw a party CELEBRATING Israel.

McCarthy told the Free Beacon that he intervened late Tuesday to reserve the Capitol Visitor Center space where Tlaib was set to host a Wednesday event to mourn Israel’s founding as a “catastrophe.’ In its place, the speaker will lead a bipartisan briefing celebrating the 75th anniversary of the U.S.-Israel relationship.
“It’s wrong for members of Congress to traffic in anti-Semitic tropes about Israel,” McCarthy told the Free Beacon. “As long as I’m Speaker, we are going to support Israel’s right to self-determination and self-defense, unequivocally and in a bipartisan fashion.”
[…] McCarthy’s intervention comes on the heels of a letter sent Tuesday evening by a rabbinical group asking leaders in the House and Senate to condemn Tlaib’s event.
“It is unsurprising but appalling that the featured speaker at this event will be a Member of Congress who describes the only Middle Eastern country to give equality and voting rights to both Jews and Arabs as ‘apartheid,’” the Coalition for Jewish Values, a pro-Israel advocacy organization comprised of more than 2,000 rabbis, wrote in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Free Beacon. “We hope that our request will meet with your favorable response, and that you will condemn this event in the strongest terms as soon as possible.”
Tlaib was scheduled to headline the anti-Israel event with several organizations that support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, an anti-Semitic effort to wage economic war on Israel. They include Jewish Voice for Peace, a “radical anti-Israel activist group” that pushes the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement and has come under fire for glorifying Palestinian terrorism. Other organizers include Emgage Action, another BDS supporter that claims Israel is an “apartheid state,” and Americans for Justice in Palestine Action, an advocacy group that claims Jewish money is infecting politics.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
