Democrat Lawmaker: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib’s BDS Movement Is “Bigoted”


Democrat Rep. Brad Schneider blasted Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for their “bigoted” views on the BDS movement. The Illinois Representative said the BDS movement is seeking to eliminate and destroy Israel.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib introduced legislation to support the BDS movement. The proposed legislation by Ilhan Omar compares Israel to Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan, and Soviet Russia. While the resolution doesn’t explicitly name Israel or the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, she told media outlets that the resolution concerns the Jewish state.

The Washington Examiner:

Democratic Rep. Brad Schneider called the boycott, divest, and sanction movement “bigoted” and argued that those who support it don’t understand its “impact.”

CNN’s Dana Bash interviewed Schneider on Tuesday about a House resolution he is co-sponsoring that is expected to be voted on later in the day.

“It condemns the global BDS movement, boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, because it opposes two states, it denies the Jewish connection to the land of Israel and it is seeking to delegitimize and ultimately destroy the state of Israel,” Schneider began. “So this resolution bringing the House together, as you noted it has almost 350 co-sponsors, three-quarters of both the Democratic and Republican sides support this resolution and I expect it to pass overwhelmingly tonight.” More

Rep. Brad Schneider called the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel “bigoted” but could not explain why Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar are not anti-Semitic for supporting it during a CNN interview.

The truth is that if Israel were to put down its arms there would be no more Israel. If the Arabs were to put down their arms there would be no more war. -Benjamin Netanyahu
