Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib got busted shedding crocodile tears and she is running for cover.
Tlaib and others have backed this anti-Israel movement BDS. After Bibi banned them for supporting this group, we learned the truth about who BDS.
It ain’t pretty, basically, they do not want Israel to exist at all and are opposed to any peace plan that mandates a two-state solution.
So did Tlaib come clean and apologize for pushing such a radical group? No, first she demanded Bill Maher, who exposed the group, face a boycott.
When that blew up in her face she changed her tune – now she is blaming senior Democrats and accusing them of hooking her up with the radical BDS.
From The Daily Caller:
Tlaib and Omar held a joint press conference on Monday to address the cancelled trip, which Israel barred the lawmakers from making on account of their support for the anti-Israel boycott, divest and sanction (BDS) movement.
Palestinian-based organization Miftah, which has terror ties and in the past promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, was partially sponsoring the trip. Tlaib dodged responsibility for the partnership when asked about Miftah at the press conference.
“Our colleagues that are senior members, some of whom have served multiple terms, actually told us about the organization,” said Tlaib, who broke down crying at another point in the press conference.
“We’re not the ones who chose the organization,” Tlaib added. “A U.S.-based sponsor organization chose it. But I think there we’re five members of Congress that actually went on a trip sponsored by the same organization.”
Five House Democrats attended a Miftah-sponsored trip to Israel in 2016: Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, Dan Kildee of Michigan, Hank Johnson of Georgia, Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania and Mark Pocan of Wisconsin. The five Democrats reportedly met with an alleged member of a Palestinian terrorist group during that trip.
