Rep. Rashida Tlaib is a supporter of Islamic terrorism. As is most of The Squad. There’s been little secret of this. Even when there have been some secrets, they weren’t really secret. Like this one.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib is part of a secret social media group in which its members have glamorized Hamas in its war battle with Israel after the terror group attacked and killed hundreds of innocent Israeli civilians last month, Fox News Digital has found.
The Michigan Democrat is a member of the Palestinian American Congress group on Facebook. The group is hidden from non-members and does not appear on the platform’s search engine, though Fox News Digital was able to gain access to it.
The group’s founder, Maher Abdel-qader, who has extensive ties to Tlaib and has also been linked to other liberal politicians, has come under fire in the past for his antisemitic social media posts, including questioning if the Holocaust ever occurred.
This isn’t really new insofar as Tlaib’s ties to Maher Abdel-qader and the Palestinian American Congress were reported back in 2019.
Maher Abdel-qader, a Palestinian activist who fundraised and organized campaign events for Tlaib, shared the content in a “Palestinian American Congress” Facebook group, the Daily Caller first reported Monday. The page is filled with anti-Semitic content, Holocaust denial, and suggestions that Israelis are committing a Holocaust of their own.
Abdel-qader added Tlaib to the group in February 2018, shortly after news broke she intended to run for Congress. Tlaib remained a member as of Tuesday.
In a post written in Arabic, Abdel-qader claimed to have raised over $200,000 for Tlaib’s campaign. If true, this would account for one in every eight dollars raised during Tlaib’s campaign.
Abdel-qader posted last March about receiving a public award from Tlaib’s campaign in recognition of his support. The award, shown in a picture he posted of himself and Tlaib, has his name etched on it.
Tlaib writes glowingly about Abdel-qader in several posts from her personal account. In one, Tlaib names Abdel-qader among her family and friends who “inspire me to stay true to my roots and who I am.”
So Rep. Tlaib had every chance to cut her ties with Abdel-qader, the Palestinian American Congress, and its pro-terrorist Facebook group.
But four years later, here we are.
The Palestinian American Congress group, of which Tlaib is a member, has featured pro-Hamas posts in the wake of the deadly Oct. 7 attack on Israel.
It’s not just Tlaib though who is tied to the Palestinian American Congress.
Another Democrat who recently embraced Abdel Qader was Minnesota’s Attorney General Keith Ellison, who is running for reelection. Last month, the Palestinian activist posted several pictures on his Instagram page from the New York City fundraiser, including a couple with him and Ellison.
Missouri Rep. Cori Bush took part in a virtual Zoom fundraiser with Abdel Qader last September, his Instagram account shows.
In early November, Abdel Qader posted a Bush fundraising flier for a reception hosted by the St. Louis Palestine Solidarity Committee and the Muslim Community of St. Louis, which solicited donations between $100 and $2,500 for Bush’s campaign, according to the flier. It appears he donated $250 to her campaign for the fundraiser.
This is what happens when you follow the money. The Left is financed by terror cash.
