There’s A New Mad Dog in Congress.

Since the first American Congress convened in 1776 there has never been heard in its halls the filth and the slander as was recently heard during the swearing-in ceremony of the first ever (hopefully the last) Palestinian-American to the Congress of the United States of America.

Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat from the state of Michigan, was elected to the House of Representatives and took her oath upon a copy of the Quran which had once belonged to President Thomas Jefferson, one of America’s earliest founding fathers and author of its Constitution.

Her first public remark shocked the entire American public. Referring to the current President, Donald Trump, she shouted “We’re going to impeach that motherfu—er….”

Never has any member of government vilified the American president in such a filthy and outrageous manner.

America now has a new mad dog in Congress… A Palestinian-American Arab mad dog who barks but is incapable of biting.  At least, so far.

Mad dogs are usually muzzled to prevent them from doing harm.  Rashida Tlabi needs to be muzzled.

She is the daughter of parents from the West Bank village of Beit Ur al-Fauqa and is a supporter of a one-state solution wherein Palestinian Arabs would be a majority of the population, thus wiping out Israel as the Jewish State.

She has advocated the cutting of U.S. funds to Israel and would greatly rejoice to see the elimination of Israel.  On the wall of her new office is a large map of the world.  Where Israel’s name appears on the map, she has crossed it out and has written over it “Palestine”, a country which as yet does not exist.

Surprisingly, the “great twitterer” (President Trump) has not responded firmly enough to the vile name-calling of a member of his government. What can he honestly say?  She should be condemned by all the members of Congress and be given a reprimand for the disrespect shown to the elected leader of the United States in whose government she now serves.

There cannot be freedom of speech when it is harmful and abusive in the halls of government.

Nothing good will come of Tlaib’s representation in the House of Representatives. She is a negative personality and lacks the dignity and respect that the American people expect from their elected officials.

Michigan has a large Arab community. They certainly know and understand clearly that remarks made by Rashida Tlaib could never possibly be made in any Arab country without the penalty of imprisonment or even death.

Tlaib was voted in by the ballot.  It would not surprise me if eventually she was removed by a bullet. There are many thousands of Jewish and non-Jewish Americans, decent people, who will not tolerate the filthy mouth of a mad dog who brings disgrace to the great American nation..

Sadly in American history there have been too many instances of political assassinations. Several presidents were removed by a bullet.  In Israel, we have tragically experienced one such incident with Yigal Amir’s assassination of Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin.

Americans today still recall the brutal assassination in Texas of a beloved president, John F. Kennedy.

There is no shortage in today’s society of madmen and wanton killers anywhere in the world.  But the arms of our Mossad are long and outstretched when the need arises.

Rashida Tlaib would be best advised to watch her words with extreme care and caution .

In the meantime, it might be advisable for the members of Congress to be inoculated against rabies.

The bite of a mad dog can be dangerous to the health and welfare of a people and of a nation.
