“We condemn Rashida Tlaib’s wrapping herself in the flag of a hostile, anti-American regime which has shamelessly claimed that it is entitled as of ‘right’ to U.S. aid, recently discontinued, and which has engaged in pro-terror, anti-anti-peace acts like honoring terrorists, naming schools and streets after them, paying salaries to jailed terrorists and stipends for the families of deceased terrorists in proportion to the amount of Jewish blood they have shed,” said ZOA national president Mort Klein.
“The P.A.-controlled media mosques, schools and youth camps is suffused with glorification of terrorism and incitement to hatred and murder,” he added.
Klein also posed: “Is Cong.-Elect Rashida Tlaib’s loyalty to America or to a terrorist dictatorship which is an enemy of America!?”
“The ZOA also condemned Rep. Tlaib’s record of anti-Semitic extremism, which includes support for ‘one-state’; that is, the revocation of Israel’s rightful independence and sovereignty and supplanting it by a single state in which Arabs would predominate,” he added.
Tlaib has said of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that the solution has to be “one state.”
“Separate but equal does not work,” she said. “I’m only 42 years old, but my teachers were of that generation that marched with [Dr.] Martin Luther King [Jr.]. This whole idea of a two-state solution, it doesn’t work.”
The ZOA has called on the Ethics Committee in Congress “to investigate her actions.”
