It is hypocritical to call out Donald Trump’s hate, if you can’t call out the anti-Semitic actions of Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.
They condemned Trump but didn’t explicitly call it “anti-Semitic” like they did with Omar. Meanwhile, Jewish Democrats in Congress did the opposite.
“As a Jew I know the guy who gases and jails kids is never my candidate,” stated one user.
For too long Rep. Pressley has defended her “squad” members Reps. Tlaib and Omar. She is forgetting about defending Jews in the process.
She had hoped that Netanyahu and Israel, “a nation dedicated to democracy and free speech,” would have protected these rights for Omar and Tlaib.
“It was not with the Prime Minister’s blessing; it was not a decision of the Israeli government” said the Israeli Foreign Minister.
“Denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally,” she said Monday at a joint press conference.
Lieu deleted the tweet after backlash, saying that it “raises dual loyalty allegations that have historically caused harm to the Jewish community.”
Tlaib captioned it: “The more they try to silence us, our voices rise. The more they try to weaken us, the stronger we become.”
Sanders called the decision “an outrage.
