Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib: Israel ‘Exists’ to the ‘Detriment’ of Palestinians

‘People want to dismiss it’
By Grabien Staff


TLAIB: "Look, I truly believe the state of Israel exists, correct. But, understand, does it exist in the detriment of inequality for the Palestinian people, detriment of not really moving forward in a peaceful resolution? We're never going to have peace, I truly believe, if separate but equal is the way they want to go. And I can tell you, I learned that from my African-American teachers in Detroit public schools, who showed me what the pain of oppression looks like. We're not going to have peace if we don't understand that we are dehumanizing Palestinians every single day when we choose Israel over their rights."
