Breitbart: Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib introduced a resolution today aimed at supporting the antisemitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which targets the Middle East’s only democracy.
The extremist legislation comes one day after the Democrat-controlled House passed a resolution claiming that President Trump made “racist comments” about four far-left Democratic congresswomen, including Omar and Tliab, known for their controversial remarks about the U.S.
“We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our first amendment rights in regard to boycotting,” Omar told Al-Monitor. “And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement.” more …
Opinion: The resolution is for the right to participate in boycotting Israel products made in the Judean (West Bank) settlements. How ironic that Rashida Tlaib’s website was made by an Israeli tech company.
Both women are out to get Israel in any way they can. One of their more moronic complaints is that Jewish people are occupying Israel. That it was Arab people who were dispersed from their ancient homeland thousands of years ago, despite the fact there is no archaeological evidence to support that their ancestors were even there.
Ishmael settled in what is now Saudi Arabia and Esau moved his tribe to Mt Seir (Edom) what is now southern Jordan. It is little wonder why Arabs forbid excavations on Jewish land they control. Most Edomites found in Israel at the time of Jesus called themselves Jews (see Matthew 23).
UN to the rescue:
To remedy the problem of a lack of evidence of Arabs in Israel, the UN created UNRWA in 1949 and changed the definition of refugee.
In doing research for her 1984 book, “From Time Immemorial” (JKAP Publications, Chicago, IL) originally supporting Arab rights to the land of Israel, author Joan Peters found a nagging discrepancy between the standard definition of a refugee and the definition used only for the Palestinian Arabs.
Historically, a refugee is someone forced to leave a permanent or habitual home. For the Palestinian Arabs only, the definition is changed from “permanent” or “habitual” to a two-year occupancy: “persons whose normal place of residence was Palestine between June 1946 and May 1948, who lost both their homes and means of livelihood as a result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict.”
Peters’ research of the facts led her to support the Jewish state of Israel.
