Elimination of Israel? Congresswoman tweets anti-Israel phrase, deletes it

She can’t seem to stay out of the news, but U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) was at it again last week when she retweeted a message “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” 

The phrase refers to a Palestinian state that stretches from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea with no Israel in sight. 

Tlaib is of Palestinian heritage, though she was born in America.  

Tlaib retweeted the post on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, Nov. 29. The phrase is associated with calls to wipe out Israel.

We already know that Tlaib supports the pro-Palestinian Boycott Divestment Sanctions movement and does not believe Israel should be a Jewish state, but she deleted the post the same day. It did not go unnoticed, however.

“Rashida Tlaib is not just opposed to Israeli control of the West Bank — this slogan means she sees the entire State of Israel as illegitimate and wants it eliminated,” Democratic Majority for Israel said. “That’s an immoral and reprehensible position.”

Tlaib deleted the tweet and said she marked the day by thinking of her family that still lives in the West Bank. 

She once retweeted Hanan Ashrawi, a top Palestinian official, who posted an accusation that Israeli settlers kidnapped and threw a Palestinian child into a well. “The heart just shatters,” Ashrawi said. 

It turned out to be a tragic drowning and in fact Israeli rescue units tried to revive the boy who accidentally fell into a reservoir. Ashrawi retracted that tweet and apologized, but Tlaib did not.

I've never read a book on leadership quite like this. Ron Cantor's approach is totally unique. This is not a book of pithy motivational poster quotes. Ron is honest and vulnerable.
