One of Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s “squad” members, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, just confessed to something disgusting and it’s shaken her colleagues in Congress.
During an interview on CNN, no less, Jake Tapper pressed Tlaib on her support of the anti-Israel BDS movement and asked her more than once whether Israel has “a right to exist.” She stammered through her response like a child caught red-handed.
Tapper asked, “Do you think the Jewish people have the right to a state in the area where Israel exists now?” Tlaib responded, “I truly believe the state of Israel is — it exists, correct.”
Why thank you, Rashida, for letting everyone know that Israel does, in fact, exist on the map, but you didn’t answer the question at all. She can’t even bring herself to admit the right of Israelis to live in peace.
So, Tapper pressed her again. “Yes or no, does Israel have a right to exist?” he asked. “Of course, but just like Palestinians have a right to exist,” proving that all she cares about is a false narrative about moral equivocation.
Historically, however, Israel has not been the aggressor. It is Palestine that has terrorized Israel, the only thriving democracy in the region. Tlaib likely knows this basic truth, but she’s an anti-Israel, anti-American radical. Her constituents deserve better.
