On Sunday, while promoting a new book by anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib wore a T-shirt showing the entire State of Israel as “Palestine.”

On the T-shirt, all of Israel is filled with the Arabic word for “Palestine” in the colors of the Palestinian flag. The shirt also depicts Israeli territory surrounded by a checkered keffiyeh, the symbol of Palestinian nationalism worn by arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat.

Alex VanNess, a fellow at the Endowment for Middle East Truth, tweeted on Monday, “Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s T-shirt doesn’t exactly scream ‘two-state solution.'”

This is not the first time that Tlaib has been associated with images that erase Israel from the map. Upon moving into her congressional office after winning the Michigan election, a map on the wall in her office had a Post-it claiming that Israel is actually “Palestine.”
