Rashida Tlaib The Future of the Democratic Party

Rashida Tlaib has made the headlines across several news agencies across both the United States and Israel for being the first Palestinian congresswoman.

Ever since taking office, she had a map of the world where they put a sticky note over Israel and wrote Palestine on it.

Tlaib wants a one state solution where Israel would cease to exist and there would be a return of all the Palestinian refugees from around the world to Israel.

The congresswoman was interviewed and said during that time that she was against providing aid to Israel, which I agree that the US should cut off aid to Israel since it hinders Israel’s ability to develop and buy its won weapons.

She had support from J-Street a radical anti-Israel group that posses as a Pro- Israel group when in fact they support the withdrawal of Israelis from the West Bank which is a strategical and security point of interest for Israel.

Tlaib  also supports the BDS movement completely and even criticized my own Senator Marco Rubio for supporting legislation against a Boycott against Israel.

Democrats are becoming progressively more Anti-Israel as time goes on and candidates like Tlaib will only continue to pop up and take up seats in the US government legislative branches.

Eventually people who are pro-Israel on the democratic side are going to vote for such candidates because other issues like gun control, immigration and fighting anything that is remotely conservative will because their real crusade.

Currently the only true friends of Israel will continue to be the Republican party who will continue to support Israel and push legislation like Anti-BDS legislation.
