Rashida Tlaib Accused of Meeting with Terrorist-Supporting Group


Rashida Tlaib accused of meeting with terrorist-linked group

 The accusations emerged after pictures on social media showed Rep. Tlaib meeting with members of the anti-Israel organization Palestine Youth Movement.

Tlaib’s visit with members of the group was first reported by The Washington Free Beacon.

Breitbart.com reports: It reportedly took place at the Arab Texas Festival of Dallas, according to social media posts.

“Yesterday, we tabled at the Arab Texas Festival of Dallas! While doing community outreach, Palestinian congresswoman @RashidaTlaib stopped by our table,” a tweet from the group’s Twitter account read.

“Thank you Rashida for continuing to stand by your bold stances on Palestine despite unrelenting Zionist backlash!” it added:

 The organization describes itself as a “transnational, independent, grassroots movement of young Palestinians dedicated to the liberation of our homeland and people” and has been under fire due to its documented support of terrorist groups – like the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)– and antisemitic vitriol.

 The group openly calls to “stop the Zionist occupation and colonization of all Palestine” and requires “full support for the Palestinian resistance,” which includes emphatically supporting the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions against Israel (BDS) movement– something Tlaib openly supports.

As Free Beacon reported:

PYM has a history of anti-Israel activity that has spilled into outright hostility toward the Jewish state. This includes a 2018 event held in San Francisco in which attendees called for Israeli soldiers to be kidnapped, according to a video of that event captured by the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America, or CAMERA.

In Facebook postings PYM has memorialized so-called Palestinian martyrs, or those killed or imprisoned while carrying out terrorist attacks on Israel. At least three of those honored by the organization were known operatives of the Hamas terror group.

 PYM USA also sponsors the Ghassan Kanafani Scholarship, named after a leader of the terrorist group PFLP. In an email to supporters in April 2017, PYM USA praised the PFLP terrorist and framed the scholarship as a way to “honor the work and legacy of Ghasan Kanafani as part of the larger history of our ongoing liberation struggle.”

“Born on this day in 1936 in Acre, Kanafani dedicated his life to the Palestinian struggle both through his work with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) as well as his writing,” the email states.

“The fire and brilliance of Kanafani’s works stems in large part from their ability to illuminate and to inspire,” it continues.

 PYM’s support of Kanafani caused Trinity St.-Paul’s United Church in Toronto to cancel the planned “celebration of the PYM’s annual Ghassan Kanafani Resistance Arts Scholarship,” which was supposed to take place over the summer. PYM decried the decision, calling it a “smear” launched by a “Zionist organization.”

 That is not the only instance of the PYM openly expressing antisemitic positions.

As the Jewish Press reported:

An extensive report by a monitoring group on PYM’s activities in the US found that in July 2018, the Critical Refugee Studies Collective, supported by the University of California, awarded a grant to PYM to help fund a three-day conference in San Francisco commemorating “70 years since the Nakba.”

While PYM claimed that the goal of the conference was “to formalize ties between our collective of transnational, politically-active Palestinian youth and the wider Palestine solidarity community within the US through a gathering themed around the revitalization of the Palestinian struggle at an important historical juncture,” the conference endorsed violence and hate toward Israelis.

On July 29, the last day of the Nakba conference, PYM uploaded a video to its official Facebook page featuring a gathering of dozens of people chanting various slogans in Arabic. The slogans included those calling for the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers and violent uprising.

One of them was “Son of Gaza, kidnap a soldier and free our prisoners. No siege and no hunger – no trading with the blood of the martyrs.” This appears to be a direct promotion of acts of terrorism.

 Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) recently made waves after Israel denied their entry into the country due to their ongoing support of the BDS movement. Tlaib penned a letter to Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, begging to see her aging grandmother, and he ultimately granted her permission to do so. However, she ultimately refused to go, arguing that she would not visit unless she could go as a “free American United States congresswoman”:

 As Breitbart News reported, Tlaib and Omar’s original trip was co-sponsored by the anti-Israel organization Miftah, led by Hanan Ashrawi, who is “a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s executive committee and supporter of BDS.”

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
