“Tlaib led a pro-Hamas insurrection into the Capitol complex, has repeatedly displayed her anti-Semitic beliefs, and shown her hatred for Israel. She must be held accountable and censured,” Greene wrote Thursday on the X social media platform.

“Every member of Congress will be on record. Including every Democrat,” she later followed up. “Will they condemn Rashida Tlaib’s hatred or support her sympathy for terrorists?”

Greene’s resolution cites other examples of “antisemitic activity” by Tlaib, such as a 2019 statement in which she expressed a “calming feeling” when thinking about the Holocaust. The resolution also references the Democrat’s characterization of Israel as an “apartheid government” and her assertion that “the path to the future must include lifting the blockade, ending the occupation, and dismantling the apartheid system that creates the suffocating dehumanizing conditions that can lead to resistance.” The “insurrection” referred to by Greene took place Oct. 18 when pro-Palestinian protesters stormed the Cannon House Office Building and committed acts of vandalism as they demanded a cease-fire in Gaza.

The Israeli military is involved in a counteroffensive against the terrorist group Hamas after a series of terror attacks against innocent civilians this month. Its response has mainly centered on the Gaza Strip and is expected to culminate in a ground invasion. In a statement Thursday, Tlaib called Greene’s resolution “unhinged” and “deeply Islamaphobic,” describing it as an attack on “peaceful Jewish anti-war advocates.” “I am proud to stand in solidarity with Jewish peace advocates calling for a cease-fire and an end to the violence,” the Democrat said. “I will not be bullied, I will not be dehumanized, and I will not be silenced.”

“I will continue to call for cease-fire, for the immediate delivery of humanitarian aid, for the release of hostages and those arbitrarily detained, and for every American to be brought home,” she said.
