‘From the River to the Sea’: Tlaib’s Genocidal Post Condemned by Her Own Party

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., found herself embroiled in deep controversy after attempting to defend what critics described as blatant anti-Semitic criticism of Israel. 

Some Democratic politicians rushed to Twitter to condemn Tlaib’s posts, which included a video accusing President Joe Biden of supporting genocide and a second post falsely claiming that the chant “from the river to the sea” is merely an “aspirational call for freedom.”

Contrary to her claims, the phrase has been used to describe the destruction of the Jewish state. Instead, it calls for the establishment of a Palestinian state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

Tlaib’s attempt to downplay the undertones of the disturbing chat did not go unnoticed by members of her own party.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat, condemned Tlaib’s post in a forceful pushback.

“I have supported and defended you countless times, even when you have said the indefensible, because I believed you to be a good person whose heart was in the right place,” she said of Tlaib. “But this is so hurtful to so many. Please retract this cruel and hateful remark.”

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., who is of Jewish descent, echoed Nessel’s reamrks, saying that the disturbing phrase calls for the destruction of Israel. 

“This phrase means eradicating Israel and Jews. Period. Dressing it up in a new PR ploy won’t change that,” Wasserman Schultz said. “Only a return of hostages, eliminating Hamas and liberating Gaza from oppressive terror will save civilian lives and secure the peace, justice and dignity you seek.”

Tlaib, known for her vocal support of the Gaza Strip, notably refrained from condemning Hamas’ actions in the southern region of Israel on October 7, drawing criticism for her silence on the matter.  

From the butchering of babies and the indiscriminate murder of Israelis, the Israeli government, along with U.S. journalists, described the acts as too barbaric to stomach. 

The controversial remarks from Tlaib drew swift condemnation from Republican critics.
