Michigan AG Requests Rashida Tlaib To Retract Remark On Israel-Hamas Conflict

michigan-ag

Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) was urged to take back her widely shared comments on Friday regarding the Israel-Hamas conflict by Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D).

The congresswoman accused President Biden of “supporting the genocide of the Palestinian people” over his administration’s backing of Israel in the conflict. Since making the remarks, Tlaib has drawn criticism from a number of sources, including Nessel, who made a post online urging her to take back her remarks.

“I have supported and defended you countless times, even when you have said the indefensible, because I believe you to be a good person whose heart was in the right place,” Nessel posted on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

“But this is so hurtful to so many. Please retract his cruel and hateful remark,” Nessel continued.

In addition to calling for a cease-fire, Tlaib’s post from Friday told Biden that the “majority of Americans” disapprove of his support for Israel.

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

Sen. Jeremy Moss (D-Mich.) responded to Tlaib’s statement in a post, and Nessel brought attention to the representative’s misuse of the phrase “from the river to the sea.” According to Moss, Hamas, a militant organization, uses the phrase as a catchphrase.

“They don’t simply want to displace Jews in Israel. They want Jews dead,” he posted on X.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), a presidential candidate, also made fun of Tlaib for her remarks. He demanded that the congresswoman from Michigan be removed from office due to her remarks.

A vote to censure Tlaib was attempted due to remarks he made that were comparable and critical of the Israeli government. This week, 23 Republicans voted against the bill alongside Democrats.

Following Tlaib’s remarks on Saturday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) promised to reintroduce the bill censuring the Michigan Democrat for advocating for a “peaceful coexistence” between Israelis and Palestinians, branding Tlaib a terrorist.

With promises of billions in assistance, the Biden administration has supported Israel in its conflict with Hamas. In an effort to safeguard civilians stranded in Gaza, the administration has more recently requested a “humanitarian pause.”

One of the few and most vocal members of Congress to call for a ceasefire has been Tlaib.
