Rashida Tlaib, who is openly anti-Semitic retweeted a phrase that denotes a call for the destruction of Israel. Tlaib has been pretending to fight anti-Semitism.
She retweeted the phrase, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” CNN fired Lamont Hill for using the same phrase.
But in the Democratic party, anti-Semitism is cool.
“Rashida Tlaib RT’s out the same message that got Marc Lamont Hill canned from CNN. From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free – code for eradicating the State of Israel and its millions of Jews. Reminder – this is a sitting U.S. Congresswoman.”
The Daily Beast, a left-wing publication, wrote the following about the meaning of the phrase:
The river in this formulation is the Jordan, the naturally occurring eastern border of Israel and of the West Bank; the sea is the Mediterranean to the west. Uttered by advocates of the Palestinian cause for decades, the pithy slogan very pointedly makes no place for Israel. It evokes a strip of Middle Eastern land where Israel is no more, replaced by a unified Palestinian entity in the space it once occupied. It could be that this entity would welcome and protect a Jewish population. But when supporters of the Jewish state hear those 10 words, they worry about their potentially violent implications.
Marc Lamont Hill was fired by CNN in 2018 for using the same phrase in 2018. Had he waited two years before uttering it, he would still be employed today in my opinion. The Times of Israel noted mat the time that the phrase was popular with Palestinian extremists. Hamas has been cited for using the phrase many times in advocating for the destruction of Israel.
Joe Biden, a possible winner of the presidential election has already appointed a couple of people who are openly hostile to Israel.

“So long as he doesn’t suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against Netanyahu’s racist and inhumane policies,” Tlaib tweeted. “The Palestinian people deserve equality and justice.”
Americans Against Antisemitism founder Dov Hikind responded: “Biden names a Jew to his cabinet What’s Rashida’s response?! ‘Well, as long as that Judische pick doesn’t stop me from focusing my hatred on one country, Israel, then he’s a good Jew!’ It’s not your 1A right you’re trying to protect but your vile Jew-hatred! That’s ALL yours!”
