Breitbart: Video of Democrat Rashida Tlaib dancing wearing the Palestinian flag at a victory party emerged Tuesday evening, after she won a largely uncontested race for the open seat in Michigan’s heavily Democratic 13th congressional district.
Tlaib is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress on Tuesday, along with Ilhan Omar, who replaced outgoing Rep. Keith Ellison in Minnesota’s 5th congressional district. Ellison was the first Muslim elected to Congress. Both Tlaib and Omar have extreme anti-Israel views. Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American elected to Congress.
After Tlaib won her primary race in August, she published several anti-Israel tweets, and re-tweeted a fan who declared that Tlaib’s “first fight was for Palestine, always Palestine.”
Opinion: Interesting that the new Congresswoman from Michigan does not seem to know what the name Palestine means or where it came from.
A Bible/history lesson for Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib:
Palestine 101: After the Romans conquered the Bar Kochba revolt in 135 AD, Emperor Hadrian changed the name of Israel and Judea to Palestine. Palestine means ‘Land of the Philistines’ and was meant as an insult to the Jews. Philistines were thought to be from Crete and continually waged war against the Israelites (1 Samuel 4-7, 13,17). Goliath was a Philistine.
Palestine 102: In 1948, Arabs who had been living in the Holy Land were warned by Arab leaders to leave the area because a war of annihilation against Israel was about to begin. After the war, tens of thousands of Arabs were stranded in Israel; only Jordan accepted a limited number of them, while the surrounding Arab nations closed their doors, leaving them in tent cities.
Palestine 201: It was in those camps that Yasser Arafat, one of the most rabid Jew killers of the 20th century, named these hapless pawns Palestinians. Palestine is the term now used by those who want to deny the legitimate existence of Israel as a genuine nation. It is a political propaganda term with massive anti-Israel implications. The world press uses the term to question the legitimacy of modern Israel.
Palestinian 202: These same Arabs (Palestinians) were from the tribe of Esau who were forced out of their home in Mt. Seir (Petra) and settled in Judea while the Jews were in Babylon. They are still there today. (Reference Antichrist: The Search for Amalek chapter 4)
Just days after 11 elderly Jewish Americans were slaughtered for being Jewish, seeing Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib and her supporters celebrate her election is terrifying to me. Just imagine how Jewish Americans feel.
