“We are watching you Nancy Pelosi. We are watching you Chuck Schumer,” declares Dov Hikind, founder of Americans Against Anti-Semitism.
Former NY State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, founder of Americans Against Anti-Semitism, a grassroots coalition that mobilizes supporters to take action against anti-Semites, implores House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer to take meaningful action against Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
In a tweet on Sunday, Hikind reveals the two congresswomen’s “latest outrage” – distributing cartoons by Carlos Latuff, who participated and won second place in the 2006 Iranian cartoon competition on Holocaust denial. One of Latuf’s cartoons shows Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Donald Trump silencing Tlaib and Omar, respectively. A Star of David is in the center of the cartoon.
Another of Latuff’s cartoons celebrates the murder of an American soldier, Hikind notes.
Hikind says that he is waiting for Pelosi and Schumer to act.
This is far from the first time that the two congresswomen have expressed themselves in an anti-Israel and anti-Semitic manner.
Tlaib has already argued that Palestinians created “a safe haven for Jews” after the Holocaust, which is very far from the truth. Now, she promotes cartoons from a Holocaust denier.
ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement: “Reps. Tlaib and Omar absolutely shouldn’t have lifted up the work of a cartoonist who frequently promotes hate toward Israel, mocks the Holocaust and traffics in anti-Semitic tropes. Doing so legitimizes his bigotry.”
Demand that Democratic leadership take action against Omar and Tlaib!
