|PHOENIX, ARIZ., – Ahead of Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s visit to the Greater Phoenix area, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser is calling out Congresswoman Tlaib for her radicalism and immoral defense of genocidal statements and lies regarding Israel. Dr. Jasser is also calling out Congressman Greg Stanton for voting against her censure, and urging that he take the opportunity to correct that awful vote by denouncing her now when she is in Arizona.
“Congresswoman Tlaib has repeatedly used a phrase that is the rallying cry for the destruction of the state of Israel. This, along with other lies about Israel and her continual trafficking in antisemitism, is why she was censured by the House of Representatives, including by 22 Democrats. Her actions have even been condemned by President Biden’s administration. But Greg Stanton, as usual, and as quietly as possible, put party politics over people and voted to do the wrong thing by voting against her censure.
“If I were in Congress,” Dr. Jasser stated, “I not only would have voted to censure Rashida Tlaib, but I would also have sponsored a resolution to expel her. You don’t get the high honor of representing America and Americans while echoing calls for genocide and supporting antisemitism.”
Jasser continued: “Now Tlaib is coming to our own backyard. I call for the organizers of her visit to cancel immediately. Our community does not wish to platform her antisemitic rhetoric. Absent that, will Congressman Greg Stanton remain silent? Thus far he has made zero statements condemning Tlaib. Instead, he has been a rubber stamp for the pro-Hamas caucus. A condemnation of this visit from Stanton is the least constituents can expect. I call on the Congressman to do the morally right thing, put political allegiance aside, and decry Tlaib’s insulting and inappropriate visit.”
In addition to her antisemitic rhetoric, recent reporting has exposed connections between Tlaib and the terror group Hamas over many years. The connections include groups founded by Tlaib, various allied groups, and fundraisers for her campaign including one co-hosted by Hamas-activist, Salah Sarsour. Recent reporting also uncovered that Tlaib is a member of a hidden pro-Hamas Facebook group, where members have mocked Israeli hostages and glorified Hamas terrorists.
Zuhdi Jasser is a Muslim and outspoken against radical Islam and antisemitism. He is a candidate for Congressional District 4, a primary care physician in Phoenix, and a U.S. Navy veteran.
