Monday on MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin Reports, anti-Semitic Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib said the United States should stop sending billions of dollars to Israel because the “apartheid” country is “promoting racism and dehumanization.”
“This is an apartheid system, Ayman,” Tlaib claimed falsely. “I mean, Israel’s own prominent human rights organization B’Tselem has declared it, Human Rights Watch has declared it. And Palestinians on the ground have been telling us for decades that they have been — their homes have been demolished, they have been targeted, that violence has been met by Israeli-led forces under Netanyahu’s racist policies.”
Fact check on Tlaib’s slanders: B’Tselem is about to be sued for its utterly false claim that the Israelis torched Palestinian fields. Human Rights Watch, like virtually every other such pro-Palestinian NGO, is not about human rights but about demonizing Israel. Netanyahu’s policies are provably not racist. And any Israeli violence is in retaliation for Palestinian rockets and terrorism.
Tlaib continued to lie: “What we’re really telling Palestinians fighting apartheid is the same thing being told to my fellow black Americans across our country here that are fighting against police brutality. There’s no form of acceptable resistance to state violence except for the denial of people’s dignity. And we need to stop. We need to stop and look at the fact that our own country is enabling it with billions of dollars every year being issued to Israel, even though they are promoting racism and dehumanization.”
These are standard, demonstrably false smears against the Jewish state, which Tlaib and her fellow leftists would like eradicated “from the river to the sea.” She is, as Sen. Ted Cruz said of her partner-in-crime Ilhan Omar, propagandizing for Hamas terrorists.
