Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) was recently pictured sporting a t-shirt that portrays the modern state of Israel as belonging entirely to Palestine. Tlaib took the photo to promote activist Linda Sarsour’s new book, We Are Not Here To Be Bystanders, but many were more interested in the image on her shirt, which showed the whole of Israel as Palestine enrobed with a black and white chequered keffiyeh, a symbol of Palestinian nationalism.
Tlaib, one of Congress’s leading critics of Israel, was pictured in the t-shirt while promoting a recently published book by Linda Sarsour, another outspoken critic of the Jewish state who serves as a surrogate for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign.The map shows Israel’s borders with Arabic letters written inside. It adorns a Palestinian shemagh scarf.
The description of a T-shirt identical to the one worn by Tlaib from a pro-Palestinian apparel website says the Arabic writing spells out the word “Palestine.”
Stand in solidarity with Palestine by wearing this beautiful Palestinian tee shirt. An outlined map of Palestine is filled with red, white, and green Arabic letters that look stunning from a distance and spell the word Palestine up close. A patterned shemagh wraps around the neck of the Palestinian state like the brave soldiers whose boots stand on the dusty ground,” the description reads.
And look how happy she is while hating Israel. From Rashida Tlaib to Bernie Sanders to Ilhan Omar, the US has turned a blind eye towards anti-Semitism. Right after Rashida Tlaib took the oath of office on a Koran in the US House of Representatives, she proudly displayed the now infamous post-it covering Israel on a map in her office.
Anti-Semitism is now normalized in the US and, without Donald J. Trump, Israel would not have an ally bold enough to have moved the US embassy to Jerusalem or declare that the Golan is Israeli territory.
