You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep. So just in case Rashida Tlaib’s open anti-Semitism wasn’t evidence enough that she’s an anti-Semite, consider who she’s been palling around with lately:

As the Daily Caller reports, Tlaib recently met and was photographed with Joe Catron during American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C. For those of you unfamiliar with Catron’s oeuvre, here’s more:
Catron is a long-time extreme anti-Israel activist and has openly supported terrorist organizations. He serves as the U.S. coordinator of Samidoun, the Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network. Samidoun is an affiliate arm of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a Palestinian Marxist–Leninist and revolutionary socialist organization. The United States designated PFLP a terrorist organization in 1997, and Australia, Japan, Canada and the European Union shortly followed suit.
Catron’s cover photo on both of his personal Twitter and Facebook accounts is a montage of a PFLP fighter donned in the organization’s official logo, as well as rockets and soldiers pointed towards a target over the state of Israel. It also displays the Arabic phrase “If you do [more attacks on Gaza] we will do [as well], hell is waiting for you.” The phrase is attributed to Mohammad Deif, the supreme military commander of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing.
In addition to supporting PFLP and Hezbollah, Catron has also be an advocate for the Sunni-Islamist fundamentalist and terrorist organization Hamas. In 2014, Catron was a participant in a press conference alongside Tawfiq Abu Naim, the head of Hamas-run security forces in Gaza. The press conference was to support Palestinian prisoners, according to The Gaza Scoop.
The Daily Caller’s report also includes some of Catron’s disturbing tweets.
In February, Joe Catron tweeted "I ♡ Hizbullah." Two months later, he was pictured meeting with Rep. Tlaib outside her office. https://t.co/zCDNpLgUAr

There is, of course, plenty more where that came from:

If Rashida Tlaib wants to convince us that “there’s nothing anti-Semitic about” her or what she does, she’s definitely got her work cut out for her.
@jncatron "is a long-time extreme anti-Israel activist and has openly supported terrorist organizations. He serves as the U.S. coordinator of Samidoun, the Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network"
You really know how to pick 'em, @RashidaTlaib
