Far-Left Squad Member Calls Israel’s Creation a ‘Catastrophe’

Rashida Tlaib, a Democratic congresswoman from Michigan and member of the Squad, introduced a resolution Monday calling for U.S. recognition of the “Nakba,” a term translating to “catastrophe” commonly used by Palestinian activists to refer to the establishment of the state of Israel.

The resolution, titled “Recognizing the Nakba and Palestinian refugees’ rights,” was submitted a week and a half after Israeli Independence Day, which coincides with the Palestinian Nakba Day, Fox News reported. Tlaib’s resolution calls for the U.S. to “commemorate the Nakba through official recognition and remembrance,” while also claiming that the Nakba “refers not only to a historical event but to an ongoing process of Israel’s expropriation of Palestinian land and its dispossession of the Palestinian people that continues to this day.”

Referring to the year of Israel’s creation, U.N. recognition of Israel’s creation, and ongoing U.S. support of Israel on Twitter, Tlaib said, “The Palestinian people since the 48 Nakba have been living under oppression and violent racism. Silence + blank checks enables more death and violence.”

The resolution claims that Palestinians opposed the U.N.’s 1947 recommendation to partition the region of Palestine into two states, one for Arabs and one for Jews. Tlaib’s resolution states that prior to Israel declaring its independence on May 14, 1948, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced to flee their homes “often after attacks by Zionist militias.” Tlaib’s resolution does not make any reference to attacks by Arab peoples on Jews or historic Jewish communities.

The resolution does not include a single mention of “anti-Semitism,” and its only use of the term “Jewish state” is in reference to a claim that Israel’s formation displaced “at least 750,000 Palestinian refugees.”

The congresswoman’s resolution also characterizes the situation differently than the State Department’s Office of the Historian, which states that after the U.N. resolution, “[f]ighting began with attacks by irregular bands of Palestinian Arabs … against Jewish cities, settlements and armed forces.”

Tlaib is a daughter of Palestinian immigrants and submitted the resolution on behalf of herself and her peers in the left-wing Squad, which commonly takes anti-Israel policy stances. In total, the resolution was submitted on behalf of Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush, Jamaal Bowman, Marie Newman, and Betty McCollum.

Tlaib has a history of making anti-Semitic comments, having previously accused lawmakers who support Israel of having dual loyalty, and has very deep ties to anti-Semitic organizations through groups funding and supporting her during her congressional campaigns.

  1. I believe the squad is a catastrophe

  2. Given that Tlaib has authored this resolution in Congress, how is it that she feels her Israel supporting representatives have dual loyalty? Israel is our strongest ally in the Middle East and as such should be supported by the United States Congress. If Tlaib wishes to see someone with divided loyalties, she needs to look in a mirror. If she does not see a person with dual loyalties there, then she should be deported as a non-citizen because she has demonstrated where her loyalties truly lie.

  3. Israel is? Try the squad, not only are they a catastrophe but stupid! I have never in my entire life seen a group of women a complete and total train wreck. You can tell education was not top on their priority list, nor was common sense. What a disaster these idiots are!

    Israel is God’s favorite place in the universe and the Jews are His chose people. The so called Palestinians are people who migrated from Jordan to the land that God gave to the Judahites.

  8. America Vote out the Squad in Washington DC swamp We The People Demand our country back from the Nazis AKA the democratic party and Rino’s and progressives Next election.

  9. And in other breaking, less than nothing news; Mr. Ed, the talking horse, is still dead!

    Actually a more befitting moniker for that group of racist shrews would be ‘The Squalor’, more in-line with the throat yogurt they spew!
