TLAIB’S CAMPAIGN PAID OUT OVER $ 100K TO A FIRM FOUNDED BY DEFUND THE POLICE, ANTI-ISRAEL ACTIVIST
Mubarak, a “Palestinian Muslim American community activist,” has a history of making anti-Israel statements online and calling Israel an “apartheid state.”
“These aren’t clashes — it’s an ongoing occupation. These aren’t evictions — they are forced expulsions,” Mubarak tweeted in May of last year. “This is not a conflict — it’s settler colonialism, it’s ethnic cleansing, it’s oppression, it’s apartheid.”
“Say it loud. Say it clear. Palestine will be FREE,” she continued with the hashtag “#SaveSheikhJarrah.”
Mubarak also attacked Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida, who is Jewish, in September of last year over his remarks pushing back against Tlaib labeling Israel an apartheid state.
“Oh look it’s [Deutch] throwing another tantrum, “the” activist “tweeted.” He used his time to attack [Tlaib] for underscoring facts also made by Human Rights Watch [and B’Tselem] – Israel is indeed an apartheid state. “
“He’s flustered [because] how else does one rebuttal the truth? “she claimed.” Bullying [and] disparagement. “
