Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib met with a pro-terrorism Palestinian group that encourages violence against Israel and celebrates terrorists as martyrs.
Tlaib, who has been bashed over comments widely considered anti-Semitic, gleefully posed for photos with the Palestine Youth Movement (PYM) during the Arab Texas Festival in Dallas on Aug. 31.

The Palestine Youth Movement has a well-documented history of anti-Israel vitriol, including encouraging Muslims to kidnap Israeli soldiers, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
In its Facebook postings, PYM has encouraged violent attacks on Israel, a longtime U.S. ally and the only democracy in the Middle East.
Rashida Tlaib’s support for Islamist terrorist groups is no secret. Earlier this week, Tlaib and fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar celebrated a court ruling that declared terrorism watch lists unconstitutional.
Judge Anthony Trenga — who was appointed by George W. Bush — sided with 23 Muslim U.S. citizens who had challenged the watch list with the assistance of the pro-Hamas group CAIR (Council on Islamic American Relations).
“This is tremendous!” Rep. Omar chirped on Twitter.
This is tremendous 🙌🏽
Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to make sure Constitutional rights are extended to all regardless of religion, race or ethnicity! https://t.co/p403vp5nHQ

I have heard of horrifying stories of Muslim Americans who were placed on the so called "watch list," with no pathway (you know, due process!) to getting their names removed. Today, it's Muslims, but tomorrow it can be you, if we don't stop this madness. https://t.co/vFjGtRhLNl

Rashida Tlaib’s tweet celebrating the relaxing of guidelines to deter terrorism comes two weeks after she refused Israel’s offer to let her visit her 90-year-old grandmother when her PR stunt backfired.
There’s widespread speculation that Tlaib declined the offer (after bellyaching about it to embarrass Israel) because she was too cheap to pay for her personal visit out of her own pocket.
A senior aide on the House Ethics Committee said: “That’s why she couldn’t go. If she got on that plane, she’d probably be breaking the law by accepting an illegal gift.”
As BizPac Review reported, Tlaib is already being investigated for potential ethics violations.
Israel initially refused entry to Rashida Tlaib and fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar due to their support of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Tlaib and Omar also have a long history of racist, anti-Semitic rhetoric.
In 2017, Israel enacted a law that prevents foreigners who support boycotts against Israel from entering the country.
In July 2019, the Democrat-led House of Representatives passed a resolution opposing a boycott of Israel. Both Omar and Tlaib, who are Muslim, voted against the resolution.
Tlaib and Omar were scheduled to visit Israel last month on a trip sponsored by the anti-Israel, pro-terrorist group Miftah, which has praised suicide bombers as “sacrificing their lives for the cause.”
This video of Rashida Tlaib exploding during an unhinged meltdown at an August 2016 Trump campaign event in Detroit encapsulates who she — and today’s anti-American radical Left — are.
Reminder: Today’s left is fomenting racial division and celebrating segregation. But they turn around and slam President Trump and his supporters as racist. Let that sink in.
The Left slams Trump, claiming he’s promoted tribalism, when leftists are actually demanding that “brown, black, and Muslim faces” only champion their “own kind.”
This is overt racism. And yet the radical left is openly celebrating and cheering it. pic.twitter.com/t87OkLse1T
