Some Michigan Democrats have spoken out against Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) after she expressed support for calls for genocide against the state of Israel.

Tlaib, who is Muslim, has promoted Hamas terrorist propaganda in the weeks following their unprecedented attack against Israel, where they murdered more than 1,400 people, wounded 5,300, and kidnapped more than 240 others.

Tlaib started facing backlash after she promoted a video on her X account that featured an anti-Semitic slogan.

“From the river to the sea is an aspirational call for freedom, human rights, and peaceful coexistence, not death, destruction, or hate,” Tlaib claimed. “My work and advocacy is always centered in justice and dignity for all people no matter faith or ethnicity.”

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat, fired back at Tlaib on X: “. @RashidaTlaib, I have supported and defended you countless times, even when you have said the indefensible, because I believed you to be a good person whose heart was in the right place.”

“But this is so hurtful to so many,” she added. “Please retract this cruel and hateful remark.”

Michigan Senate President Pro Tem Jeremy Moss, a Democratic senator for District 7, responded: “This is not how Jews view the phrase ‘from the river to the sea.’ This is not how Hamas views the phrase ‘from the river to the sea.'”

“Hamas uses it as a rallying cry. And they don’t simply want to displace Jews in Israel. They want Jews dead,” he said. “Hamas killed 1400 Jews in just a few hours. They are holding 200+ more in unknown conditions. They would kill all 7 million Jews in Israel if they could. And if you can’t imagine that happening, read a history book.”


“This phrase preys upon the psyche of Jews. There are less than 16 million of us living in the world. Fewer Jews are alive today than the eve of the Holocaust. Just about every Jewish person you know lives where they live because their family escaped certain death to get there,” he continued. “One of my great grandfathers came to Detroit via Ellis Island alone at 17 years old. He wrote back home to Russia begging his family to join him. Sent them money. They never came & after WWII, he never heard from them again.”
