We are finding out more about the newly elected Congresswoman from Michigan. A few bullet points from Reporter Peter Hasson.
One of Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s key fundraisers, Maher Abdel-qader, has repeatedly promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
The Michigan Democrat is a member of a Facebook group where Abdel-qader and other members have shared anti-Semitic content.
One video Abdel-qader shared with the group accused Jews of secretly controlling the media and exaggerating the Holocaust.
Tlaib has already come under scrutiny for having ties to other anti-Israel figures and for questioning the loyalty of pro-Israel lawmakers.
If only this came out before the 2018 midterms, this may have opened up some eyes to what she’s really about. Does the House have room for this type of hate? She is one of the new guns in the freshman class of Democrats. Again Peter Hasson.
“Tlaib is a member of the Facebook group “Palestinian American Congress,” where members often demonize Jews. The group’s founder, Palestinian activist Maher Abdel-qader, was a key fundraiser for Tlaib and organized campaign events for her around the country.”
This group beside other things deny that 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust. They even have a video that claimed Jews aren’t actually Jewish, and invented their historical claim to Israel and secretly control the media. From that video. “Research the truth about the Holocaust, and you’ll definitely start to question what you thought you knew,” the video’s narrator says.
In closing, we can all hope that she will be one and done. If not, let’s hope that the House leadership reigns her in. What say you?
