NY Post: Tlaib loses cool when asked if Israel has a right to exist: “Do you work for Netanyahu?”

WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 11: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), one of only three Muslims serving in Congress, departs a classified closed-door briefing about Hamas' attack on Israel in the Capitol Visitors Center Auditorium on October 11, 2023 in Washington, DC. The members of Congress heard from Acting Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Joint Chiefs of Staff Director for Operations Lt. Gen. Douglas A. Sims II, among others, about the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

Well of course she said this.

The New York Post reports that Michigan Democrat Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was talking with a “self-described…concerned Jewish constituent.” https://nypost.com/2023/10/15/tlaib-loses-it-in-2019-when-asked-if-israel-has-right-to-exist/

The headline:

Tlaib loses cool when asked if Israel has right to exist: ‘Do you work for Netanyahu?’

The story reports:

“A video purportedly from 2019 shows Rep. Rashida Tlaib, the progressive Democrat of Michigan, saying that Israel and the Palestinian people should “coexist” after being asked if the former has a right to exist.

In the video obtained by Fox News Digital, the Michigan representative is seen having a spirited conversation with a self-described ‘concerned Jewish constituent.’

‘Separate but equal doesn’t work, it didn’t work with Blacks and Whites in our country, it shouldn’t work in Israel,’ Tlaib says at the beginning of the clip. ‘Right?’

The person who took the video, who asked not to be publicly identified, pressed the Squad member, asking, ‘So would that be a right for Israel to exist?’

‘Do they pay you guys?’ Tlaib responded. ‘Do you work for Netanyahu?’”


Perhaps the question should be reversed, with Tlaib asking how many Jews have been admitted to Hamas? How many have a hand in running Iran? Saudi Arabia? Could a Jew be a president of a Palestinian state?

The ludicrous comparison to the old segregationist “separate but equal” doctrine in segregationist-era America is obviously false.

The fact of the matter is that this world is composed of dozens and dozens of decidedly individual – separate – countries. England is not Germany. Japan is not Brazil. The United States is not Canada. They are all separate but equal.

And oh yes.

Not to be forgotten is that Tlaib has a few flags proudly hung side by side outside her office. They include the Palestine flag and…wait for it…the rainbow flag of the LGBQT gay movement.

Apparently Tlaib is unaware that if you are gay in an area run by Hamas or Iran you will be prosecuted and sentenced with the death penalty because, yes indeed, both have made it a crime to be gay.

Ya can’t make it up.
