Far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) reportedly met with a terrorist supporter and extreme anti-Israel activist in her congressional office in Washington, D.C., in mid-April.
The Daily Caller’s Molly Prince reported that the meeting happened during the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) Advocacy Day, which reportedly requires those attending to support the anti-Semitic “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.”
“Tlaib spoke to AMP on April 8 where she told the group that she feels ‘more Palestinian’ when she is in Congress than she does elsewhere, according to The Investigative Project On Terrorism, who first reported on the meeting,” Prince reported. “AMP’s New Jersey chapter posted a photograph of Tlaib outside of her office with some of its members during the event, including Joe Catron, an avowed supporter of multiple Palestinian terrorist organizations.”
Prince reported that Catron praised Tlaib on Facebook following the event, saying that Tlaib “really goes above and beyond the call of duty in welcoming every supporter of Palestine to her office, listening to what we have to say, answering our questions, and posing for endless pictures.”
Prince reported on extremist content posted to social media by Catron, adding: “Catron is a long-time extreme anti-Israel activist and has openly supported terrorist organizations. He serves as the U.S. coordinator of Samidoun, the Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network. Samidoun is an affiliate arm of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a Palestinian Marxist–Leninist and revolutionary socialist organization. The United States designated PFLP a terrorist organization in 1997, and Australia, Japan, Canada and the European Union shortly followed suit.”
Tlaib “embraced anti-Semite and alleged Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Linda Sarsour” during her first week in office, The Daily Wire reported in January.
The Daily Wire also reported that Tlaib, who is a documented anti-Semite, was photographed with “a pro-Hezbollah activist who called Israelis ‘Zionist terrorists’ and believes Israel has no right to exist” during her first days in office.
