Rashida Tlaib: You Can’t Be Progressive and Pro-Israel

Muslim American Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) was slammed by House Democrats on Wednesday for claiming that fortifying “Israel’s apartheid government” is incompatible with “progressive values.”

“I want you all to ken that among progressives, it’s become pellucid that you cannot claim to hold progressive values, yet back Israel’s apartheid regime, and we will perpetuate to push back and not accept that you are progressive except for “Palestine,”” Tlaib verbally expressed during an online forum organized by “American Muslims for Palestine” and “Americans for Justice in Palestine Action.”

Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, verbalized in replication: “In one sentence, Rep. Rashida simultaneously tells American Jews that they require to pass an anti-Zionist litmus test to participate in progressive spaces even as she doubles down on her antisemitism by slandering Israel as an apartheid state.”

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), a longtime progressive, told the Jewish Insider the genuine incompatibility with progressive values is “creating a litmus test that would omit the Jewish community from the progressive kineticism.”

New York Democrat Jerry Nadler, who is Tlaib’s fellow member at the Congressional Progressive Caucus, tweeted: “I fundamentally reject the notion that one cannot support Israel’s right to subsist as a Jewish and democratic state and be a progressive.”

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) inscribed: “The outrageous progressive litmus test on Israel by [Tlaib] is nothing short of antisemitic,” Wasserman Schultz indited on Twitter. “Proud progressives do fortify Israel’s right to subsist as a Jewish and democratic state. Suggesting otherwise is ignominious and hazardous.”

Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) who has championed “Israel’s” LGBT rights and who has described himself as the embodiment of a pro-Israel progressive, indited: “There’s nothing progressive about advocating for the terminus of Israel as a Jewish State,” he verbally expressed on Twitter. “Nothing progressive about opposing the Abraham Accords, which promotes tranquility. Nothing progressive about opposing Iron Dome, which forfends civilians from indiscriminate rocket fire.”

Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), who is retiring, verbalized support for Israel constituted a progressive value. “There are progressive activists, progressive students, and progressive Members of Congress whose support of democratic Israel is fundamentally a component of their progressive values… We will not be muted,” he inscribed on Twitter.

Deutch’s successor Jared Moskowitz, verbalized: “I want you all to ken that among progressives, it becomes pellucid that you cannot claim to hold progressive values if you are an antisemite.”
