Rashida Tlaib Headlines Anti-Semitic Conference
United States Congress [Public domain]
Rep. Rashida Tlaib's anti-Semitic views are well documented, from her support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement to being a member of a Facebook group that disseminates bigoted conspiracies. 

The latest example of Tlaib's prejudice quietly came last Friday as the keynote speaker at a conference organized by American Muslims for Palestine (AMP).

Per the Daily Caller:
 

The AMP views Israel as an enemy and its work is well-documented by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an organization that documents groups and individuals who foster and disseminate anti-Semitic propaganda. The ADL describes the AMP as promoting “extreme anti-Israel views” and creating “a platform for anti-Semitism.”

...

The representative was also an editorial contributor to a Nation of Islam publication run by the notoriously anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan. Maher Abdel-qader, who peddles conspiracy theories about Jews and Israel, vigorously fundraiser for Tlaib’s congressional campaign and acted as her scheduler in the 2018 midterm elections.

In her speech, Tlaib suggested America’s southern border with Mexico was similar to the Gaza Strip, Palestinian real estate that is under the heel of Hamas terrorists. The congresswoman further attempted to equate the alleged Israeli “occupation” of Palestinian territory to supposed racial injustice in America.

...

She continued by claiming that United States police forces abuse black Americans in the same way that she says Israeli occupation forces terrorize Palestinians.


Vermont Senator and White House hopeful Bernie Sanders and former Women's March co-chair Linda Sarsour were also at the conference.
