Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-Mich.) just got busted being scandalous on Twitter and has tried to erase the evidence.

But someone grabbed screenshots after they saw the tweets after the backlash caused her to scrub her Twitter of the offending tweets.

She retweeted a post containing an anti-Semitic slogan that basically calls for the elimination of the State of Israel. Wow.

From The New York Post:

Originally posted by user @RashaMK, the tweet included an illustration of two women, one holding up a peace sign and one holding up a fist, with what appears to be Palestine behind them.

On the drawing were the words “International day of solidarity with the Palestinian people.” The caption on the tweet, meanwhile, read “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

The phrase “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” first rose to prominence as the slogan of the Palestine Liberation Organization during its founding in 1964.

It refers to the notion that the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea should be entirely under Arab control, with a Jewish state eliminated.

Eventually, the slogan was altered slightly and adopted by Hamas, the terror group.
