US Congresswoman introduces a resolution, calling for the lower house of US Congress to recognise the forced expulsion of at least 750,000 Palestinians by then Zionist paramilitaries in 1948.
Democratic Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar has expressed serious reservations about a Republican House task force that includes extremists like Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Eleven Republicans joined Democrats in a 230-199 vote to approve the Democratic-backed resolution, which stripped Marjorie Taylor Greene of her seats on the House Budget Committee and the House Education and Labor Committee.
Loomer has called Muslims “savages” and Islam a “cancer”. That she’s now a GOP nominee for Congress points to a deeper rot in the party.
The so-called peace plan unilaterally annuls previous UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue and gives Israel pretty much everything the Israelis have been demanding.
The US President has divided Jewish citizens of the US into two camps: loyal and disloyal. Trump's statement employs a dangerous anti-Semitic trope that puts the minority in danger.
Tlaib and Omar, who had planned to visit Jerusalem and the Israeli-occupied West Bank on a tour organised by a Palestinian group, are outspoken critics of Israel's treatment of the Palestinians.
Obeying the demands of US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday banned a join trip by US representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from visiting Israel and touring the West Bank.
Israel decided to allow US congresswoman Rashida Tlaib - a critic of Israeli policy towards the Palestinians - to visit family in the occupied West Bank after barring her from making an official visit to Israel.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would bar a planned visit by two US congresswomen who have supported a boycott of the country over its treatment of Palestinians, a decision in line with President Donald Trump's urgings.
Top Republican leaders rallied around Trump, but four members of the president's party voted with the 235 Democrats to condemn him for "racist comments that have legitimised and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of colour."
In the US president’s most recent spat, he told a group of Democrat congresswomen to ‘go back to where they come from’. For supporters the controversy means little.
