Rashida Tlaib hates both the freedom of speech and Israel

“BDSers single out Israel for condemnation even though it does more to protect human rights than any other country in its region.”

Indeed. As does the UN. In both cases, the cynical and deceptive “Palestinian” propaganda has been monstrously successful in deceiving large numbers of people.

“Rashida Tlaib doesn’t love free speech, she hates Israel,” New York Post Editorial Board, July 24, 2019:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) made her views crystal-clear on the House floor Tuesday when she rose to oppose a resolution condemning the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement: She hates Israel with a passion.

Specifically, she stood to protect “the right to boycott the racist policies of the government and state of Israel.”

The BDS movement calls for action to make the Jewish state feel pain because it’s supposedly the prime cause of Palestinian suffering.

That is, BDSers single out Israel for condemnation even though it does more to protect human rights than any other country in its region. Palestinians in Israel have far more rights than those governed by Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.

Yet Tlaib opted to equate Israel’s critics with the opponents of the Nazis and apartheid, noting: “Americans boycotted Nazi Germany in response to dehumanization, imprisonment and genocide of Jewish people.” And: “In the 1980s, many of us in this very body boycotted South African goods in the fight against apartheid.”…

Thing is, this wasn’t a bill to outlaw or even regulate anything. It was just a purely symbolic measure opposing those who single out Israel for condemnation when it behaves better than most of the world’s nations.

Which is why it ultimately passed, 398-17. Even Tlaib’s fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) supported it….
