Rashida Tlaib slandered Israel as a “racist state,” falsely claiming that it’s Israel’s responsibility to vaccinate a population ruled by the Palestinian Authority.
The anti-Semitism scandal that Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) has been unable to shake should come as no surprise to anyone who views clips like this one, in which the congresswoman parrots the lie that Israel must vaccinate a population governed by the Palestinian Authority.
Contrary to Tlaib’s falsehoods, Israel has neither an obligation nor a right to take any direct action with regard to PA-ruled communities in Judea and Samaria, which are governed by Mahmoud Abbas’ government, a regime that spends hundreds of millions of dollars a year paying salaries to terrorists who maim and murder Israeli civilians.
“Under the Oslo Accords, the PA is responsible for civilian affairs, including healthcare, in areas under their jurisdiction,” reported the JNS, laying out the facts that Tlaib refuses to acknowledge.
Rep. @RashidaTlaib on Israel not vaccinating Palestinians:
“It’s really important to understand that Israel is a racist state, in that they would deny Palestinians like my grandmother access to a vaccine, that they don’t believe she’s an equal human being who deserves to live.” pic.twitter.com/vPCeXjdqrZ
