Tlaib attends Shabbat event with far-Left Jewish pro-BDS group after rejecting Israel visit

Dignity from Detroit to Palestine.”

But not for Israel. Tlaib must have been laughing up her sleeve at the credulity and helpfulness of these Useful Idiots. The BDS movement is frankly neo-Nazi in its goals, as the Nazis staged nationwide boycotts of Jewish-owned businesses early in the life of the Third Reich.
