They tried to censor Rashida Tlaib in the US House of Representatives

The Georgia lawmaker accused Tlaib, D-Mich., of “anti-Semitic activity, sympathizing with terrorist organizations and leading an insurrection at the United States Capitol Complex.”

Greene described an Oct. 18 protest at the Capitol calling for a cease-fire in the war between Israel and the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) as an insurrection.

During the event, hundreds of protesters entered the Cannon House office, prompting the federal Capitol to temporarily close access to the building.

Police estimated they arrested about 300 protesters, including three people accused of assaulting an officer during a protest demonstration organized by Jewish activist groups such as the Jewish Voice for Peace calls for a ceasefire in the conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Greene cited Tlaib’s posts on the X network in support of the Palestinians and criticism of the Israeli regime.

Since the proposal is a privileged resolution, the House must vote on it within two legislative days, but that will happen only after its members return to Washington next Wednesday.

Tlaib, the only Palestinian American in Congress, did not attend the protest inside but gave remarks at a rally of protesters outside the Capitol.

“I want all Palestinians to see this. I want them to see that not all Americans want them dead, that they are useless,” said Tlaib, reported by local media.

“They didn’t ask to be born to work … the dehumanization destroyed my soul,” the congressman emphasized.

Almost seven thousand Palestinians have been killed and more than 19,000 injured in the occupied territories since the start of Israel’s new aggression against the Gaza Strip 20 days ago.
