On November 6, 2018, Michigan voters in the 13th district, elected Rashida Tlaib to the be their next United States Congresswoman. Tlaib will be filling the seat of the disgraced Democrat Congressman, John Conyers, the longest running member of the House before he was quietly run out of DC amidst several sexual assault allegations against him. While Conyers was a sitting Congressman, his wife, Monica Conyers served a 3-year-term in prison for bribery while she was serving as a Detroit City Congresswoman. Former Congressman John Conyers (D) was hoping that his son would fill his seat, but when John Conyers III came up 1,000 signatures short on his petition to get his name on the primary ballot, Tlaib saw an opening in a weak US Congressional race and capitalized on it.
Palestinians in the West Bank cheered on Wednesday morning as they awoke to the news that Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat, had been elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
Representing Michigan’s 13th congressional district, encompassing southwest Detroit and its western suburbs to the city of Dearborn, Tlaib, 42, made history, along with Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar, as they become the first Muslim women elected to Congress. Tlaib is also the first Palestinian-American woman elected to the legislative body. Both also ran on progressive Democrat platforms.
She has become “a source of pride for Palestine and the entire Arab and Muslim world,” Tlaib’s uncle Bassam Tlaib told Reuters in the small Palestinian village of Beit Ur Al-Fauqa.
In the video below, Michigan’s first Muslim Congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib can be seen celebrating her victory by wrapping herself in the Palestinian flag and hugging her Palestinian mother.
Listen, as she tells the crowd about how proud the Palestinians on the West Bank are of her nomination to the US Congress, and how they’re glued to their televisions. You can also hear what appears to be a middle eastern male in the background expressing his enthusiasm, as he almost drowns out the sound of Tlaib’s voice with his celebratory ululation (a shrill sounding tongue trill that is commonly heard in the Middle East).
This is History. Watch every second of this.
Rashida Tlaib, the first Palestinian and Muslim American congresswomen, proclaims victory.
Now, in an unprecedented move, the Muslim congresswoman from Michigan has announced she will be wearing a Palestinian dress to her swearing-in ceremony.
Rashida Tlaib posted a “sneak peek” of her Palestinian dress to her Instagram account saying, “Sneak peek: This is what I am wearing when I am sworn into Congress. #PalestinianThobe#ForMyYama”
The comments under her post were a mixture of “congratulations” and comments that expressed support from users who exhibit pure hatred for Jews, one user reminded her that “Palestine” is a country that doesn’t exist. For decades, Palestine has been run by the terror group Hamas.
This user congratulates the US Congresswoman-elect for her decision, reminding everyone that Israel is a racist nation with the hashtag #aparteidisrael
Another person congratulates her for getting “Zionists” to “foam at the mouth.”
Nice support of a country that doesn’t exist
Is Tlaib’s decision to support the Hamas state of Palestine a slap in the face to Americans?
Only two days ago, that #ResistTrump congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib posted this image along with fighting words, telling her opponents (not sure if she means Republicans or Israelis or both):
Look at the faces and feel the fighting energy. I know that keeping the movement loud and large is part of the battle. We will win and they will have to f**king deal with it.
Congresswoman-elect Tlaib recently found herself in some hot water several weeks before she is to be sworn in wearing a Palestinian dress.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) did not disclose the name of the source of funds for a fellowship that was paid by liberal billionaire George Soros—as required by the House ethics committee—and also disclosed a lesser amount than she received, according to a review of tax and financial disclosure forms.
The Washington Free Beacon obtained the most recent copies of tax forms for a number of Soros’s organizations, including the Open Society Institute, the legal name for the Open Society Foundations, the entity in which Soros pushes millions in funding to a number of liberal causes and organizations.
When independent journalist Laura Loomer confronted Tlaib about her support for the terror group, Hamas, and asked her why she is campaigning with the open Jew-hating activist Linda Sarsour, Rashida Tlaib attempted to yank Loomer’s phone from her hand.
