Rashida Tlaib was elected to Congress in 2018 and has quickly become a lightning rod for her criticism of Israel and her associations with Palestinian activists, at least one of whom has compared Zionism to Naziism. Tlaib recently told the New York Times regarding her support for such Palestinians, “respect for free speech does not equate to anti-Semitism.”

The article appears to have been written specifically for The Final Call; an online search did not turn up any evidence of the article elsewhere.

The author bio included with the article reads “(Rashida Tlaib, advocacy coordinator of the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS) in Detroit.)”
