Rep-Elect Tlaib Shares Photo of PALESTINIAN GOWN She will Wear as She’s Sworn Into Congress

Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib, who will be one of the first Muslim women in Congress, shared a photo of the Palestinian gown she plans to wear during her swearing-in ceremony early next year.

In a photo on Instagram, Tlaib wrote, “Sneak peek: This is what I am wearing when I am sworn into Congress. #PalestinianThobe #ForMyMama.”

Tlaib is the daughter of Palestinian immigrants and became the first Muslim female member of Michigan’s state legislature a decade ago. She was seen at her victory party wrapped in a Palestinian flag.

A self-styled progressive, Tlaib is a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and was arrested two years ago for disrupting a Trump speech in Detroit.

Asked during an interview with Great Britain’s Channel 4 News whether she would vote against military aid to Israel when she goes to Congress, Tlaib said “absolutely.”

“U.S. aid should be leverage,” she said. “If you’re going to be a country that discriminates on somebody solely based on their faith, solely based on their skin color … to me, that doesn’t fit our value of our country.”

  1. Big deal. Simcha Felder wore his yarmulka. Let’s judge on what she does for her constituents. Its only a matter of time before NY and NYC elect a muslim to office. We will never see eye to eye on the Palestinian issue, but there are many issues that we can find common ground. The askanim should be trying to work on the merits not her clothing.

  2. The present and future of the WONDERFUL (sarcasm) Democratic Party of the United States. The party of open abortions, open marriages, open gender changes, open with a “greener” and “better” Earth.

  3. To philosopher I care about Eretz Yisroel as much as you do, but I live in the USA and I think she should be judged on her domestic policies, not foreign policies. If she’s a left-wing liberal then I’m against her. As I wrote before this woman is only the beginning I predict that many Muslims will be winning various offices across the nation within the next 5-10 years. We have to live with it.

  4. ah yid, her intentions are to demonstrate her Fakestinian ancestry and their “legitimate struggle” in “reclaiming” the land…In other words, this will serve to legitimize terror committed by the Fakestinians because they are “fighting for their freedom” and “reclaiming the land” (that was never theirs). Therefore, if Jewish lives are valuable to you, you would be full of revulsion about what her intentions are.
