Even though Rashida Tlaib refused to go visit her grandmother choosing instead to showboat and in other ways destroy her credibility, the situation over there is tough but we must not forget our history – there is a good reason those territories are occupied – they were killing Israeli’s with suicide bombers and rocket attacks.
Rep. Tlaib will not tell you that and sadly most people in America have forgotten history. And this is not ancient history, but very recent history.
With that said, some media outlets caught up with Rep. Tlaib’s grandmother and she had a message for President Trump.
Sitting under an olive tree in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, Muftia Tlaib scoffs at the attention she has recently received from the president of the United States, as AOL reported.
“May God ruin him,” she says.
Muftia Tlaib is the grandmother of congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, at the center of an affair that has drawn President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu together against U.S. Democrats.
On Thursday, bowing to pressure from President Trump, Israel barred a visit by Rep. Rashida Tlaib and fellow Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar that it had initially said it would allow.
The next day, Israel said it would let Rep. Tlaib visit her family in the West Bank on humanitarian grounds – but Rep. Tlaib rejected the offer, saying that Israel had imposed restrictions meant to humiliate her.
On Friday night, the President tweeted: “Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now!”
Ninety-year-old Muftia Tlaib, sitting in her garden in the village of Beit Ur Al-Fauqa, was not impressed. “Trump tells me I should be happy Rashida is not coming,” she said. “May God ruin him.”
