Many have accused the pair, but they are normally careful to shroud their speech, so as to leave the door of doubt ajar. This one leaves no room for doubt.

'Miftah' is a non-profit Ramallah-based organization that Omar and Tlaib worked with in organizing their now-cancelled trip to Israel. From the above link:

Quote:
[Miftah] actually published blood libel, posting an article that accused “the Jews [of using] the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover...."
This is the notorious 'blood libel' that has long been a significant aspect of anti-Semitism. It was a belief, common in Medieval Europe, that Jews would murder non-Jewish children regularly. According to the myth, the purpose was to collect blood for certain macabre rituals. It was claimed, without evidence, that there was an annual congress in Spain where Jews decided by lot where a killing was to take place, and that in 1144 the lot fell to Norwich, East Anglia, England

In March, 1144 in Norwich, a farmer's young son named William was found dead, with his head shaved and numerous stab wounds. Jews were immediately blamed. There was no evidence; just a myth and an accusation. Historian Paul Johnson writes that in all such incidents where there was an official ecclesiastical trial, the charges were found to be false. The mob usually didn't wait for a trial.

This impelled a series of similar incidents across England. In 1189, all Jews found in their homes in Norwich were slaughtered. Some had escaped beforehand to safety in the local castle. Jews then were often hated by the mob, but valued by kings and nobles for their economic contributions.

There can be no doubt this time. Omar and Tlaib are working closely with anti-Semites, and unless they renounce and disavow, they have to be considered as anti-Semites themselves. The Democratic party has a decision to make, as to whether they will continue to support and associate with anti-Semites.

Strange how the MSM and the Democratic party have simply ignored the terror-supporting sponsorship of Tlaib and Omar.

Wait...there's more:
In an obviously coordinated move, Tlaib and Omar have now shared a cartoon of a well known anti-Semite. The cartoonist has repeatedly trivialized the Holocaust and mocked survivors of the Holocaust. He equates Israel to Nazi Germany. He was awarded a prize by the Iranian regime in its Holocaust denial cartoon contest.

Of course the Democrats will condemn these two despicable haters.....of course.

The Democratic party has an anti-Semitism problem!

So if a person talks bad about the Israeli government, that means they are anti-Semite? Wow, so much for free speech.

How is the blood libel talking bad about the Israeli government? The blood libel goes back hundreds of years. It has zero to do with the Israeli government, which was formed in 1948.

BTW, I add that there are other examples of anti-Semitism of Miftah, the group that was planning Omar & Tlaibs trip. They can be found at the link in post #1. One of them includes (re)publishing of materials by a US anti-Semitic, Neo-Nazi group.

I think Trump wants them re-elected in 2020.

All they did was throw a junior staffer under the bus. Proves nothing.
