(February 19, 2019 / JNS) Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), a supporter of the anti-Israel BDS movement, just so happens to have used the Israeli web-development platform Wix to create her campaign website.
Democratic Majority for Israel applauded Tlaib for utilizing a product from a country she seeks to boycott.
“We congratulate Congresswoman Tlaib for her decision to use the best products she can find, instead of discriminating against Israel in way that increases hostility, thereby making peace between Israelis and Palestinians more difficult to achieve,” said the group’s president, Mark Mellman. “We need to foster economic cooperation between Israelis and Palestinians instead of encouraging boycotts. We hope Congresswoman Tlaib’s use of Israeli products indicates she has changed her mind on boycotting Israel.”
Tlaib’s office nor Vanguard Public Affairs, which designed the website, immediately responded to a request for comment.
