Rashida Tlaib opposes Israel aid package after ducking censure

One day after she ducked being formally censured, Israel-hating Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) came out in opposition to the $14.3 billion aid package to the Jewish state by accusing it of committing “ethnic cleansing” in Gaza.

Thanks to the help of around 20 House Republicans who joined Democrats in rejecting the rebuke of Tlaib for her “antisemitic activity” and inciting an invasion of the Capitol complex, the “Squad” member has been emboldened to continue her work as a congressional proxy for the Hamas terror organization which she did in her statement opposing what she called “Netanyahu’s genocide.”

“The American people do not support funding for war crimes—like the use of white phosphorus bombs—and are calling for a ceasefire. As the Israeli government carries out ethnic cleansing in Gaza, President Biden is cheering on Netanyahu, whose own citizens are protesting his refusal to support a ceasefire. We must be laser focused on saving lives, no matter their faith or ethnicity,” the Michigan Democrat claimed in her statement condemning the nation’s vital Middle East ally.

“The number of children killed in Gaza in just three weeks has surpassed the annual number of children killed across the world’s conflict zones since 2019—yet instead of helping end this violence, President Biden baselessly casts doubt on the Palestinian death toll. U.S. funding for the Israeli military with no humanitarian conditions will take us farther away from ending the violence and reaching peace,” Tlaib said.

“Achieving a just and lasting peace requires lifting the blockade, ending the occupation, and dismantling the dehumanizing system of apartheid,” she added, invoking the notorious racist South African system that has been used to great effect by antisemites to fan the flames of hatred for Israel.

“Not only do some of my colleagues want to send more weapons to carry out war crimes and violations of international law, but they want to do it by providing tax breaks to billionaires and undermining crucial investments in our communities. Instead of funding more bombs with American taxpayer dollars, our leaders should be calling for a ceasefire now, before this violence claims thousands more lives,” Tlaib concluded, urging President Joe Biden to force Israel to call off the dogs after the Hamas terrorists slaughtered over 1,300 of its citizens including babies.

While squeamish Republican lawmakers didn’t have the spine to hold Tlaib accountable, users on X, the platform previously known as Twitter, brought the hammer down.

Despite Tlaib and her fellow anti-Israel Democrats, the bill passed 226-196 on Thursday evening with a dozen members of the left-wing party defecting and joining with Republicans to advance the aid package, a major victory for newly elected Speaker Mike Johnson even if it will be vetoed by a president reluctant to alienate the antisemites in his base.
