Even after being called an anti-Semite by many Republicans, and has been banned from visiting Israel because of her support of the anti-Israel BDS movement, Muslim-American Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D) continues to push a pro-Palestinian agenda and raising eyebrows in the process.
Rep. Tlaib, who has famously said that he wanted to impeach “the mother*cker (Trump), recently retweeted controversial pro-Islamic, pro-Palestinian activists, one of them being an American who refused to denounce Islamic terrorism, and the other being that like Tlaib, blames Israel for the unrest in the Middle East.
Huwaida Arraf tweeted that the recent suicide of a homeless Palestinian man was caused by the “humanitarian disaster deliberately manufactured by Israel and enabled by the silence and acquiescence of the entire world
Arraf retweeted with a comment a tweet from another Palestinian activist Jehad Abusalim of New York, who tweeted a picture of the man who committed suicide. Abusalim also said that the man “was abandoned by many” and like the “many youth in Gaza” died far to young adding that it was “time to end the blockade.”
Tlaib then retweeted Rana Elmir’s tweet where the terrorism-denier inserted her opinion in rewriting Sen. Chuck Schumer’s praise for retiring GOP Rep. Peter King.
“Peter King stood head & shoulders above everyone else as an anti Muslim bigot. He’s been principled & never let others push him away from his principles as an anti Muslim bigot. There, I fixed it. Sen Schumer was missing a few words in his tweet.”
Here is Schumer’s tweet:
Peter King stood head & shoulders above everyone else as an anti Muslim bigot.
He’s been principled & never let others push him away from his principles as an anti Muslim bigot.
There, I fixed it. Sen Schumer was missing a few words in his tweet. https://t.co/hn7L25qZ0C

Tlaib has also openly blamed Israel for an honor killing of 21-year-old Israa Ghrayeb from Bethlehem after she was beaten and murdered by her brother at the behest of his father after she posted a video of her and a man she was to be engaged to. Tlaib tweeted the posting and image that blamed Israel for the killing.
Meanwhile, Israel and Hamas continue to exchange gunfire after the IDF killed one of Hamas’ top military leaders. Hamas, in turn, has launched dozens of missiles into Israel
