Recently, Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib has faced calls to be removed from future classified briefings on Israeli military operations after being accused of spreading “misinformation” and siding with Hamas instead of the Biden administration regarding the Gaza hospital explosion.
Last week, Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson of Texas wrote a letter to Congress charging Tlaib with touting false information about the explosion, siding with Hamas’ claim that Israel was behind the attack. However, U.S. and Israeli intelligence claim the incident was caused by a rocket fired from Gaza. Jackson demanded the member of the far-left “squad” be withheld from further involvement with classified information related to the the conflict.
“I demand that Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib be prevented from participating in any classified briefing about Israel’s ongoing military operations, Israel’s self-defense efforts, or any American military movements in and around the region,” Jackson wrote to Speaker Pro Tempore Patrick McHenry and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries.
Jackson further denounced Rep. Tlaib’s anti-Israeli sentiment, labeling her a Hamas sympathizer and a “mouthpiece” for terrorism. “We must not allow Hamas sympathizers in this body to serve as the mouthpiece for Palestinian terrorists. Rather than condemn the attacks by Hamas, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has chosen to side with Hamas by spreading misinformation,” he continued.
Jackson ruthlessly condemned the “Squad” member, alleging that it has “become clear that Congresswoman Tlaib’s allegiance lies with Hamas.” He further claimed that her access to sensitive, classified information surrounding the Israel-Hamas war could “put American and Israeli lives at risk.”
“This antisemitic behavior is unfortunately nothing new from Congresswoman Tlaib. Just a few months ago in July, she took to the House floor to wrongfully describe Israel as an apartheid state before voting against a resolution which reaffirmed that Israel is not a racist or apartheid state. Back in 2021, when Israel had to defend itself yet again from unprovoked rocket attacks from Hamas, Congress took action to replenish Israeli missile defense stocks. However, Congresswoman Tlaib voted against this measure, instead siding once again with Hamas and Iranian-backed Palestinian terrorists,” Jackson went on to say in his letter.
Rep. Jackson seemingly implied that antisemitic supporters of Hamas have no place in Congress, let alone to have access to the classified information on the violent conflict in Gaza. He vowed to do everything in his power to prevent Tlaib from obtaining access to such information.
“I don’t know what’s more concerning, that we have Members of Congress who are antisemites and support Hamas, or that we let those Members of Congress attend classified briefings on the war in Israel. While I cannot control the fact that these leftists’ districts elect terrorist sympathizers to office, I will do everything in my power as a member of the House Armed Services and Foreign Affairs Committees to bar them from receiving American intelligence on the current situation in Israel. You do not let the enemy know your plans, and letting Representative Tlaib into these briefings is doing exactly that. Furthermore, this anti-American, anti-Jewish sentiment from elected “leaders” must STOP, it is dangerous!” said Jackson.
