Rep. Tlaib faces renewed backlash for antisemitism before she’s to host a panel on combatting antisemitism

U.S. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is back in the news cycle first because she’s been tapped to speak on an upcoming panel seeking to combat antisemitism and second because of a comment she made over the weekend about Joe Biden’s expected pick for Secretary of State.
The upcoming event is hosted by Leftist groups including Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), which claims “antisemitism is used to manufacture division and fear,” as The Jerusalem Post’s Seth J. Frantzman pointed out in a recent article.
The event quickly drew backlash with many Twitter users considering the event as satire.
Activist and writer Hen Mazzig said he “fixed” the advertisement of the event showing Tlaib and other panelists, hanging the title to “ENABLING ANTISEMITISM, JEWS DON’T DESERVE JUSTICE: A PANEL DISCUSSION.”
Rep. Tlaib, who supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement that seeks to cut ties with Israeli entities, has a dark past with hatred against the Jewish people. For instance, she’s spread antisemitic “blood libels.”
On Sunday, just weeks before she’s to speak against antisemitism, Tlaib used her Twitter profile, which has over 1 million followers, to cast doubt over Biden’s reported choice for Secretary of State, Tony Blinken, who is Jewish. “So long as he doesn’t suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against Netanyahu’s racist and inhumane policies,” she said. “The Palestinian people deserve equality and justice.”
Jewish Journal reporter Aaron Bandler wrote of Tlaib’s tweet, “She doesn’t like the fact that he’s Jewish,” adding “Also the fact that her first concern about a new SOS is being able to demonize Israel should tell you all you need to know about her.”
Newsmax reporter Logan Ratick wrote in response to Tlaib, “Her first reaction to the possibility of a Jewish man being appointed to a cabinet position is a remark about Israel. What an unhinged anti-Semite. Tells you everything you need to know about her.”

BREAKING: Federal Indictment of Trump in Classified Documents Probe has been Unsealed
Former President and current Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, has been indicted and is facing 37 counts in connection with his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The 49-page document was unsealed Friday.
The indictment contains charges of the following: Willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, withholding a document or record, corruptly concealing a document or record, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheme to conceal, and making false statements and representations.
Trump announced the indictment Thursday night on Truth Social, his social media platform:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is ‘secured’ by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
Trump declared himself an “INNOCENT MAN” and the subject of the “Greatest Witch Hunt of all time.” The Biden administration, he claimed, is ‘TOTALLY CORRUPT.”
The former president has argued that all the documents in question were declassified when he left the White House. “You’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview last year.
Trump was on to Biden's deep corruption re Ukraine and wanted it investigated, so they impeached him.
Now that many of Biden's crimes are being exposed, naturally they're going to indict Trump again.
