Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism – Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) blasted Israel’s “occupation” policies while saying she grieves those killed as violence engulfed the region following Hamas’ unprecedented incursion from Gaza.
Tlaib — the first Palestinian-American sworn into Congress back in 2019 — issued the statement slamming Israel as an “apartheid” state
We read in the statement, “I grieve the Palestinian and Israeli lives lost yesterday, today, and every day. I am determined as ever to fight for a just future where everyone can live in peace, without fear and with true freedom, equal rights, and human dignity,” Tlaib said.
It continues, “The path to that future must include lifting the blockade, ending the occupation, and dismantling the apartheid system that creates the suffocating, dehumanizing conditions that can lead to resistance.”
