A photo of Rep. Rashida Tlaib proudly holding up Linda Sarsour’s book is making the rounds on Twitter Monday, and not so much because of interest in Sarsour’s book but more because of the T-shirt Tlaib is pictured wearing, which depicts the nation of Israel completely covered by the Palestinian flag.

Well considering the first thing she did in her Congressional office was rename Israel on the map, this isn't new for her.https://t.co/YRavGs6MqS

More like Egypt, but yes, that went up right after she was sworn in.

I’m pretty sure she’s been explicitly one-state solution since winning her primary.

Yup. If I remember correctly, that caused J-Street to withdraw their endorsement of her.

She supports a one-state solution, she's said. The larger problem with the shirt is saying the quiet part out loud about what a one-state solution would actually mean https://t.co/35pblnrFW7

Including the formerly Syrian Golan Heights in a map of a would-be Palestine is a pretty obvious way of saying that your vision of Palestine is “wherever Jews currently live (but won’t for long)”

You'd think they'd have the courtesy to hide their hatred of Jews just a little bit.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo reported that Tlaib did not respond to a request for comment.
