Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) commented in a recent interview that she was “really afraid of my fellow Americans” after the 9/11 terrorist attacks that were carried out by Islamic terrorists. She gave an interview to Makers and recounted the way she experienced the 9/11 terror attacks. In the interview, she made it clear that it was Americans, not Islamic extremists, that were the threat to her and others.
“I was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened. And I was– I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time,” Tlaib said. “I immediately called my brothers and told them to be very careful who you hang out with, telling my sisters, you know, just be real careful out there, and being really afraid of my fellow Americans.”
“It really pushed me to be more involved, and I got really curious and really angry,” Tlaib added. “And I think that combination got me, you know, in front of a number of issues in the city of Detroit.”
Muslims were not persecuted or even harassed after 9/11 in America. This is a form of simply telling a monstrous lie long enough until people believe you are some kind of victim when you really aren’t. It’s like a wolf claiming that the sheep are attacking him… it’s just not true.
From The Daily Wire:
“Tlaib has come under intense scrutiny for her anti-Semitic remarks, ties to extremists, and defense of inflammatory comments ever since she was sworn into office in January.
“Immediately after, Tlaib promoted an “anti-Semitic slur leveled at her Congressional colleagues for their support of a bill which would allow local, state, and federal agencies to avoid doing business with entities that support the anti-Israel Boycott-Divestment-Sanction (or BDS) movement,” the Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotii previously reported.
“They forgot what country they represent. This is the U.S. where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality,” Tlaib tweeted. “Maybe a refresher on our U.S. Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away.”
“The idea of Jews as having divided loyalty, and of using their influence to convince others to act against the interests and principles of their own country, is an age-old anti-Semitic trope,” The Washington Examiner reported.
“The Daily Wire previously reported that Tlaib belonged to a group that “frequently demonizes Jews, and its Palestinian founder, Maher Abdel-qader, raised substantial funds for Tlaib for her congressional campaign as well as organizing some of her campaign events.”
“Claims of Abdel-qader’s virulent anti-Semitism are buttressed by various facts: he reportedly shared on his Facebook page and on the page of the ‘Palestinian American Congress’ an anti-Semitic video that claimed Jews aren’t really Jews and their historical claim to Israel was a fiction they created,” The Daily Wire continued. “The video also parroted the usual anti-Semitic claim that Jews control the media as well as purveyed the idea that the Holocaust was fake, stating, ‘Research the truth about the Holocaust, and you’ll definitely start to question what you thought you knew.'”
“Tlaib, honoring Abdel-qader for his help with her campaign, during which she took a number of pictures with him and he sometimes was a speaker at her events, gave him a medal for his contributions,” The Daily Wire added.”
One of America’s oldest Jewish organizations, the Zionist Organization of America, called for Tlaib’s removal this week from congressional committees and from the Democratic Party for her “anti-Israel record” and ties to “terrorists, anti-Semites and conspiracy theorists.” I could not agree more.
“Rashida Tlaib’s anti-Israel record was already well-known before she was elected in last year’s midterm elections,” the ZOA editorial article says.
“She calls Israel a ‘racist country’ on the basis of the lie that Israel discriminates against those ‘darker skinned,’ supports the destruction of Israel in favor of an Arab-dominated state (‘It has to be one state’), ‘absolutely’ backs withholding U.S. aid from Israel, and openly supports the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which is committed to international ostracism and weakening of Israel with a view to its eventual elimination.”
“It is perfectly clear that Rashida Tlaib is not in the smallest degree ashamed, and has not the slightest inhibition about, being publicly being associated with these anti-Semites, terrorists and glorifiers of Jew-murderers,” ZOA National President Morton A. Klein and Chairman Mark Levenson said in a joint statement.
“The Democratic Party must do the only honorable thing,” they continued, “which is to expel her from the party and remove her from Congressional committees.”
Tlaib used 9/11 as a political starting point in her career. As the Canada Free Press put it: “It is not Americans who should be feared but rather how radical, pro-Hezbollah, anti-Israel activists like Rashida Tlaib ever got elected to the Congress of the United States of America.”
Tlaib is not grieving for the almost 3,000 Americans who died that sunny morning in 2001 in the largest terror attack ever on US soil. She instead sides with terrorists and claims that Muslims were the true victims. The only Muslims who died that day were the ones that crashed planes into the World Trade Centers, Towers 1 and 2, the Pentagon and forced down Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA. They weren’t victims… they were religious zealots and mass murderers and they were evil. Birds of a feather.
