Representative Rashida Talib (D-MI) attacked Israel when she appeared on the radically liberal show "Democracy Now!" on Tuesday even so far as to accuse him of being a “racist state” because he did not include the roughly 4.5 million Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip in his coronavirus vaccination program.
Tlaib attacks Israel
“I mean, I think it's really important to understand that Israel is a racist state and that they would deny Palestinians like my grandmother access to a vaccine, that they don't believe that she is an equal person who deserves it to live deserved to be protected by this global pandemic, ”said Tlaib, a member of the radical liberal“ Squad ”of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
“And it's really hard to see how this apartheid state continues to deny its own neighbors, the people who breathe the same air as they do, who live in the same communities – you could build a settlement wherever you want, but on top of that On the other side of this wall is a peasant community village where my grandmother lives and many of our various family members and others I know are trying to lead a good life, a free life, free from this policy of oppression, these racist guidelines that give them Deny access to public health, deny them access to freedom of travel, and deny them access to academic opportunities, ”she continued.

Tlaib did not stop and talked about how it was allegedly "critically important" that Israel be called out as often as possible.
“It's so important that we shout it out. Our country continues to make this land possible and Netanyahu who continues to spew anti-Arab rhetoric that allows violence against Palestinians to continue in a way that is so inhuman and inconsistent with international human rights, ”she said. "And that's why I think it's very important. If anything, I hope, my colleagues, I hope our country sees what the Palestinians have been trying to tell us for a long time."
“That Israel has no intention of ever caring for them or granting them equality or freedom as their neighbors. And that shows in the distribution of the vaccine, ”Tlaib continued. “You saw it during testing and tracking too. My family told me they didn't have access to tests. They would get some side effects and they would use the little cottage they had and quarantine the family member. They had absolutely no access to preventive measures, medication. "
"That continues, too, and we are once again allowing Israel to continue doing so," she concluded. “They have the power to distribute this vaccine to the Palestinian people, their own neighbors, again meters from where they live, many of whom could expose them and their families, and it doesn't – if at all, repeats it only the Palestinian people and human rights groups have told us that this is an apartheid state.

It has long been evident that Tlaib and his colleagues at "The Squad" have no respect for Israel, but it is downright disturbing that they are no longer even trying to hide their disdain for the nation.
