Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has been making a lot of headlines lately for her advocacy for the Palestinian cause and calls for a ceasefire in the Israel-Gaza War.
Her dogged advocacy of Gazans after Hamas’s aggression against Israel with a horrific terror attack on October 7 that broke a ceasefire that was already in place has raised a lot of eyebrows.
In her tearful hand-wringing about the plight of the poor, innocent women and children in Gaza who are now facing the wrath of the Israeli Defense Force because Hamas tortured, kidnapped, and murdered innocent women and children in Israel and won’t allow them to leave in order to keep the civilian body-count high, she’s invoked the genocidal phrase “From the River to the Sea” that is the catch-phrase of Hamas.

The inclusion of the phrase — which she clearly knows is fraught with controversy since she had posted then deleted it in 2020 after online backlash — caused the House to censure her.
Even far-left MSNBC talking head Chris Hayes asked her about it.
Tlaib says that the phrase is just about the freedom of Palestinians to live in peace with Jews in the region and not a call to genocide. She adds that this is what many people mean by it.
It is possible that people are just so incredibly ignorant that they are unaware that the sentiment encapsulated in the phrase is embedded in the Hamas Charter that explicitly calls for the genocide of the Jews… or it’s just a way to hide the bloodthirsty antisemitism that is bubbling just under the surface of these “anti-colonialism” activists. The jury’s out on the former, but there’s evidence of the latter.
Fox News is reporting as an “Exclusive” that Rep. Tlaib is a member of a “secret” Facebook group whose members have been posting some pretty disturbing content after the October 7 terror attack in Israel.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib is part of a secret social media group in which its members have glamorized Hamas in its war battle with Israel after the terror group attacked and killed hundreds of innocent Israeli civilians last month, Fox News Digital has found.
The Michigan Democrat is a member of the Palestinian American Congress group on Facebook. The group is hidden from non-members and does not appear on the platform’s search engine, though Fox News Digital was able to gain access to it.

Tlaib has extensive ties to the founder of the group, Maher Abdel-Qader, who has promoted antisemitic content on social media like calling Jewish people “satanic” and questioning whether 6 million Jews were actually killed in the Holocaust.
This is the very same group that ClashDaily reported on back on 2019:
Tlaib has posted photos with Abdel-Qader on social media.
She was so pleased with the way that he had helped her with her campaign, she gave him an award.
In March 2018, Tlaib presented Abdel-qader with a medal showing her appreciation for his help with the campaign, according to Voices of New York, a project of the City University of New York (CUNY). She posted multiple pictures of herself with Abdel-qader on Facebook during the campaign and emphasized how important his support was to her.

While Abdel-Qader apologized in 2019 for calling Jews “satanic” after backlash, the exposure hasn’t stopped him from expressing antisemitic sentiment.
On October 19, he wrote on his Facebook page, “Israeli Nazis air strike [sic] on Ahli Arab Hospital killed more than 500 people stop the massacre now.” He was referring to the failed Palestinian Islamic Jihad rocket that fell into the hospital’s parking lot with a far lower death toll.
Abdul-Qader is still promoting Tlaib on his Facebook page. As late as Monday, he posted a flier for a fundraiser in Chicago for Tlaib and Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Summer Lee. “Chicago, be ready for 2 great congresswoman’s [sic] who wholeheartedly support our community and the just cause of Palestine,” he wrote in English and Arabic.
The posts on the “secret” Facebook group post-October 7 are pretty clear — some of the people in the group support Hamas’s terrorism.
One Oct. 12 post from a group member reads: “We don’t want to throw you in the sea…we want you to ride it back from where you came.” It was posted with a photo of an elderly Israeli woman and a Hamas fighter holding her captive.
Another group member posted a photo of a masked Hamas terrorist praising the “achievements” of the “resistance in Northern occupied Palestine,” which includes the murder of dozens of Israeli soldiers.
“Since yesterday I have been attached to the TV watching the news,” wrote one member of the group on October 10. Addressing the “American Media” the post continued, “You, and the people directing you, are the problem, you created it almost 100 years ago, made it official 75 years ago and you have been feeding its flam ever since.”
“You consider Hamas a terrorist organization and I am not going to argue with you at the same time you have been broadcasting that they have been killing women and children, guess that is what terrorists do at the same time no mention to the killing of Palestinian women, children and entire families killed on a daily basses [sic] by the [peace-loving] state of Israel using American gifts of weapons and jet fighters.”
“Yesterday I didn’t see Hamas I saw the grand kids [sic] of the refugees that ethnically cleansed from their homeland attacking the grand kids [sic] of the colonists whom sent them to Diaspora,” concludes the post.
Other pro-Hamas messages were posted to the group prior to the October 7 terror attack by Hamas.
Fox News notes that Tlaib joined the group six years ago and posted to it during her 2018 campaign. It’s unclear if she’s posted anything to the group since then.
Knowing what you do about the current House Representative of Michigan’s 12th Congressional district, are you surprised that she’s a member of this pro-Hamas Facebook group?
We already know that Rashida Tlaib is unhinged.
There’s another option here, maybe she’s stupid and inarticulate.
That’s a legitimate possibility. Check out her comments about how she has a “calming feeling” when she thinks about the Holocaust.

Yikes! Ok, maybe it’s both.
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.
