Tlaib, AOC Call for Israel Aid Cut if Annexation Proceeds

Tlaib, AOC Call for Israel Aid Cut if Annexation Proceeds

June 30, 2020

Radical Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib are among four House Progressives calling for the U.S. to cut aid to Israel over its plan to apply sovereignty across parts of the West Bank.

The pro-Israel AIPAC lobby has lashed out at the four, which also includes Reps. Pramila Jayapal and Betty McCollum, saying the letter they wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “explicitly threatens the U.S.-Israel relationship in ways that would damage American interests, risk the security of Israel & make a two-state solution less likely.”

The four said in their letter they would work to ensure the annexation would not be recognized and aid to the country be conditional on Israel’s settlement spending and human rights record. McCollum has accused AIPAC of being a “hate group” after it ran an ad suggesting “radical” Democrats are “more sinister” than ISIS.

House Democrats are a hate group. With the rise of young radicals like Tlaib, anti-Semitism in the party has risen its ugly head even higher than usual.
