Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib once-again targeted Israel on social media Wednesday night, this time accusing the Jewish State of committing “human rights abuses” and maintaining an “apartheid government.”
“We must stop enabling Israel’s human rights abuses and apartheid government,” posed Tlaib on Twitter.
I plan on casting a no vote.

So-called members of the liberal ‘Squad’ forced Democrats to cut $1 billion in aid for Israel’s Iron Dome Missile Defense Shield as lawmakers debate a massive budget proposal.
“A group of far-left lawmakers — including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) — forced House Democratic leadership Tuesday to cut $1 billion for Israel’s Iron Dome from a short-term government funding bill,” reports the NY Post.
“The removal of the language from a continuing resolution that would keep the federal lights on through early December prompted an urgent call from Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid to House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.),” adds the newspaper.

“4400 rockets were fired against Israel last spring. Iron Dome defended Israel, saving lives on both sides of the border. The U.S. stood by Israel then, and we stand with Israel now. I supported Iron Dome funding in the CR. I will make sure that Iron Dome is funded this year,” said one Democratic Rep who opposed the move.
“Israel has a new government with the broadest imaginable governing coalition, including Arab parties. Israelis and Palestinians are talking to each other again. The Abraham Accords are changing the dynamic of the entire region. All progress starts with and depends on security. And security relies on Iron Dome funding.”

“There’s a lot of young Jewish people that I know that are absolutely against the occupation and I wanted you, because often on this program, we have the freedom to address the fact that something that you know people, it’s an oxymoron, how do you have white supremacist Jews? How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are legit aligning with racism and white supremacy, but they’re Jewish and it’s something that most people can’t wrap their brains around. But it’s a real thing and what’s going on with Israel and Palestine, while it’s very deep, it is very, very criminal. It is very, very unjust,” said ‘EBRO in the morning.’
“Absolutely, and I think to where we’re at as a country when it comes to Israel-Palestine is very much a generational thing. I think that when we start looking at it through that lens, a lot of this stuff starts to make sense. It’s like what you’re talking about, young Jews in Israel are sick of this,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
President Trump called-out ‘The Squad’ on social media earlier this month; blasting the four freshman Congresswomen as “racist troublemakers” and “not very smart.”
“The ‘Squad’ is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border…And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!” posted the President on Twitter.
‘The Squad’ consists of Representatives Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley.
Rashida Tlaib sounded the alarm on President Trump’s tax cuts Monday; pledging to repeal the legislation and give the money “back to the people that earned it.”
“Recently, I introduced the Boost Act. This legislation completely repeals the GOP Tax Scam… Do you know what I did with that money? What I said? We’re going to go ahead and put it in the pockets of every day Americans… We give it back to the people that earned it,” said Tlaib.
A NEW LOW: Rashida Tlaib Accuses STEVE SCALISE of ‘Islamophobia’ for Condemning Anti-Semitism
Recently sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib blasted GOP Rep. Steve Scalise Wednesday evening; accusing the lawmaker of “Islamophobia” after he demanded Ilhan Omar be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee for her anti-Semitic statements.
“Hard to watch Rep. Scalise demand that Rep. @IlhanMN be removed from House Foreign Affairs w/o wondering if it’s steeped in Islamophobia. Ilhan is more than capable of sitting on the committee & making decisions that are in the best interests of her constituents & all Americans,” posted Tlaib on social media.

Omar made national headlines earlier this year after she accused “evil” Israel of “hypnotizing” the world and flat-out refused to condemn Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.
