The legislator undid the retweet, and took the picture and then tweeted, “Thinking of my sity Muftieh and family in Palestine today. From Detroit to Gaza, we will always fight against oppression and inequality.”

“From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” is a phrase that critics say calls for the elimination of the State of Israel.
Since taking office in January 2019, Tlaib has been accused of peddling an anti-Israel and anti-Semitic agenda.
