SCOOP: RASHIDA TLAIB HOSTS ANOTHER EXTREME ANTI-ISRAEL, TERROR-AFFILIATED ACTIVIST ON CAPITOL HILL
- Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib met with members of the anti-Israel organization American Muslims for Palestine during an advocacy event they hosted on Capitol Hill.
- Tlaib was photographed after sitting down with Joe Catron, an extreme anti-Israel activist and outspoken terrorist supporter.
- Tlaib’s time in congressional office has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism.
Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib met with another extreme anti-Israel activist and terrorist-supporter in her Capitol Hill congressional office during American Muslims for Palestine Advocacy Day in mid-April.
American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) hosted the annual advocacy and training event, which was open to all adults who “seek justice in Palestine.” Additional criteria for participation includes supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.Advertisement
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) describes the BDS movement as “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence” and has further criticized AMP for promoting anti-Semitism under the guise of educating Americans. AMP hailed the ADL’s anti-Israel description of its organization.
Tlaib spoke to AMP on April 8 where she told the group that she feels “more Palestinian” when she is in Congress than she does elsewhere, according to The Investigative Project On Terrorism, who first reported on the meeting.
AMP’s New Jersey chapter posted a photograph of Tlaib outside of her office with some of its members during the event, including Joe Catron, an avowed supporter of multiple Palestinian terrorist organizations.
