Michigan Democratic nominee promises to “absolutely” vote

Michigan Democratic nominee promises to “absolutely” vote for slashing aid to Israel and SHOCKS Jewish group that endorsed her! A woman who just became the Democratic nominee for Michigan’s 4th district and is running uncontested in November, just promised to vote to slash aid to Israel:

TIMES OF ISRAEL – A Michigan Democrat who is all but certain to become a congresswoman said she would “absolutely” vote against military aid to Israel, sparking criticism from a Jewish Democratic group.

Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, recently won the Democratic nomination in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District. The Republicans are not running a candidate in the Detroit-area district.

Asked whether she would consider slashing military aid to Israel in a Monday interview with Britain’s Channel 4, Tlaib responded, “Absolutely, if it has something to do with inequality and not access to people having justice. For me, US aid should be leverage. I will be using my position in Congress so that no country, not one, should be able to get aid from the US when they still promote that kind of injustice.

Oh did I mention she’s a Palestinian Muslim?

She’s also advocates for BDS and endorsed a ‘one-state’ solution instead of supporting the more popular two-state solution in Democratic circles:

In a subsequent interview Tuesday with In These Times magazine, Tlaib endorsed a one-state solution and supported the free speech rights of BDS activists, who push for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel.

“One state,” she said in response to a question about whether she supports a one- or two-state solution. “It has to be one state. Separate but equal does not work. I’m only 42 years old but my teachers were of that generation that marched with Martin Luther King. This whole idea of a two-state solution, it doesn’t work.”

The Democratic Jewish Group that endorsed her had no idea she supported this, as they claim to be pro-Israel and support the two-state solution:
