After being granted a temporary humanitarian visa by Israel to visit her 90-year-old grandmother, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib says because of “principle” she won’t go now.
She put out the following statement on Twitter on Friday morning.
When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions. I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me & use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive & racist policies.
Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice.
So there you have it, her true colors are being shown. She hates the Nation of Israel.
Tlaib and Omar’s hatred for Israel has no place in American politics.
