ACLJ Profile Completion


Radical Anti-Semite and Member of Congress Rashida Tlaib wears a t-shirt, literally showing the destruction of the State of Israel.

On today’s Jay Sekulow Live we discussed Representative Rashida Tlaib’s anti-Israel shirt, and of course, the Mini-Super Tuesday results.

Democratic Socialist, and Senator Bernie Sanders supporter, Representative Rashida Tlaib posted an image on her Facebook page of herself on International Women’s Day wearing a t-shirt depicting a map of “Palestine” with the word “Palestine” written in Arabic letters over where Israel should be. It’s so shocking that we had to vet it and make sure that it was real. So what’s missing on the t-shirt? It’s the State of Israel, gone. No space for the Jews.

It is a shirt that calls for the eradication of the Jewish State of Israel. If you’re wondering about the book she is holding in the picture, it’s a new book by Linda Sarsour, a spokeswoman for Senator Sanders’ campaign, radical Anti-Semite, and a promoter of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Sarsour is so radical, so Anti-Semitic, that she got kicked out of the Women’s Day marches which are pretty liberal in most parts of the country – and she was one of the original organizers. It’s not really surprising that she supports Senator Sanders’ campaign, which by the way is not even on life support anymore – its dead. Whether he admits it or not, it’s over after last night.

The voters rejected socialism.

But now we have this sitting Member of Congress wearing an anti-Israel t-shirt. There’s no two state solution there. It depicts a one-state solution that pushes the Jews into the sea.

At the ACLJ we’re working on a case that defends Israel, and we have a major filing deadline coming soon at the International Criminal Court. The ICC prosecutor wants to come after the Israeli people, and we’re preparing a brief defending the interests of our ally Israel, to be filed very soon.

ACLJ Senior Counsel Andy Ekonomou said on the show:

Our brief for the International Criminal Court is due on Monday. I have it before me right now, the latest draft. The office of the prosecutor has asked the pre-trial chamber to confirm that the territory of which the court may exercise jurisdiction is the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza. The issue of Palestinian Statehood they say has been definitively resolved and that there is a state of Palestine.

We are arguing that the ICC lacks the authority or the capacity to create states and to define borders. That’s not what their job is.
