Multiple Resolutions Brought Against Tlaib For “Antisemitic Activity”

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has introduced a resolution to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for “antisemitic activity” and “sympathizing with terrorist organizations.”  Last week, a pro-Palestinian protest calling for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war after an explosion at a hospital in Gaza allegedly killed hundreds took over the bottom floor of the Cannon House Office Building. Tlaib spoke at the protest, accusing Israel of deliberately targeting civilians despite multiple intelligence agencies and media outlets concluding that the blast came from a failed rocket launch from within Gaza and hit the parking lot not the hospital itself.  Greene’s resolution is the second against Tlaib, with Rep. Jack Bergman (R-MI) filing the first for Tlaib’s statements referring to Israel’s existence as an “occupation” and labeling Israel’s government “the apartheid system” and calling for it to be dismantled.  Democrat Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) urged members of Congress to support the censure of Tlaib saying, “Any member of Congress who continues to trust Hamas’s information over U.S. information is obviously deeply concerning.”
