A member of Congress has been caught fundraising from terrorists. In a shocking report from the Canary Mission, a group dedicated to fighting antisemitism in the United States, it has been revealed that “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American, has deep connections to Hamas, the terror group that launched the largest slaughter of Jews since the Holocaust earlier in the month.
The group writes that it “can confirm that Rashida Tlaib has extensive fundraising ties to Hamas supporters. She employed no less than three Hamas-linked activists to fundraise for her 2018 election campaign, one of whom spent 8 months in prison for his alleged connections to Hamas.
Tlaib additionally used a pro-terror Facebook page, PAC-USA, to raise funds for her 2018 Congressional campaign. Tlaib gave the founder of PAC-USA the position of Chairman of the Finance Committee for Rashida Tlaib for Congress. He used it to promote 12 fundraisers in 8 states, entirely with her support.
In 2015, Tlaib co-founded the Detroit-based, anti-American, anti-Israel and pro-terror hate group, Black4Palestine. A co-founder used the group to conduct activism with members of the Marxist-Leninist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which is designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).”
The Jerusalem Post offered a detailed description of Tlaib’s links to “at least three Hamas-linked activists, whom she employed to fundraise for her 2018 election campaign….The three fundraisers named were Salah Sarsour, Rafiq Jaber, and Abdelbaset Hamayel.
Sarsour, who was jailed for being connected with Hamas in 1995, co-hosted an event with Tlaib in 2018. The group shared an archived link showing Sarsour’s name appearing on an event flyer.
Jaber has also apparently admitted to helping distribute Hamas’s propaganda in the US. In 2003, he testified that he directed two Hamas front groups to “promote [the Holy Land Foundation] in every way we can” and admitted to distributing pro-martyrdom materials that celebrated the killing of Jews.
The fundraiser is also a co-founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Hamayel, the final of the three fundraisers, has worked for multiple Hamas-linked organizations in the United States, all of which are now defunct.”
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air asked the pertinent question: Where is the media? The same people who implied criminal charges for how a congresswoman acted on a date or rifled through Sarah Palin’s trash are nowhere to be found when a Democrat is fundraising from terrorists.
“Those kinds of ties should be of interest to American voters, especially in Tlaib’s congressional district, no? American media outlets would certainly benefit their readers and viewers by at least offering these links as context to Tlaib’s advocacy against Israel and for “Gazans” while they hold American hostages.”
Tlaib has represented the City of Detroit since 2019.
