Jake tapper questioned Rashida Tlaib about BDS and Israel’s right to exist; her response is absolutely stunning.
Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib said that Israel “exists” to the “detriment” of Palestinians after she struggles to explain why BDS is not anti-Semitic when pressed by CNN’s Jake Tapper. She cares more about the Palestinian people than the American people. Tell me again why she is in our government?
Tapper asked Rashida Tlaib: “So you talk about the hate agenda and there is criticism of you from fellow Democrats for your support for the BDS movement for boycott, divest, sanctions, an anti-Israel movement.”
Her answer: Well it is anti…it is criticizing the racist policies of Israel and it is a boycott…I can tell you that all-around college campuses, there are Jews, Muslims, Hindus, all different kinds of backgrounds who are pushing back against racist policies in Israel because they see the human rights violations of children being detained…We all know that under Netanyahu’s regime, human rights violations have gotten worse.
Tapper then asked: “Do you think the Jewish people have the right to a state in the area where Israel exists now?”
Her answer: I truly believe the state of Israel is – it exists, correct.
But understand, does it exist in the detriment of inequality for the Palestinian people? The detriment of not moving forward in a peaceful resolution? We’re never going to have peace, I truly believe, if separate but equal is the way they want to go. And I could tell you I learned that from my African-American teachers in Detroit public schools who showed me what the pain of oppression looks like. We’re not gonna have peace if we don’t understand that we are dehumanizing Palestinians every single day when we choose Israel over their rights.
There will never be peace for Palestinians because of the behavior of the Palestinians. Shooting hundreds of rockets at your neighbor is not a good idea… in fact, it’s called terrorism.
There will never be a ‘compromise’ with the Palestinians because they will accept nothing less than the total eradication of Israel and the Jews.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
