Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) criticized her fellow Republicans at the end of last month for failing to rebuke Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for her anti-Semitic views.
A report shows that when Greene submitted her bill to reprimand Tlaib for her anti-Semitic tirades, the House Republicans decided to table it together with the Democrats, much to Greene’s displeasure.
Greene stated that none of the Republicans she served with have done anything to stop the Department of Justice (DOJ) from harassing January 6 defendants, parents, and pro-lifers on a daily basis. They attack President Trump and his supporters. And Republicans in Washington, DC, do not care.
Rashida Tlaib was censured by a vote of 234 to 188 on November 8th, making her the 26th person in Congress to be thus punished since the country’s inception. Tlaib was also censured by 24 fellow Democrat Party members.
The censure was done several weeks after she called on the Jews in Israel to be forced out by Palestinians. According to reports, the statement “from the river to the sea, Palestine shall be free” is commonly taken to indicate the genocide of Jews and the eradication of the Jewish state.
The amended resolution prevents House Speaker Mike Johnson from publicly reprimanding Rashida Tlaib on the House floor. She was spared such public humiliation, thanks to Congress.
The term has been viewed as akin to hate speech in recent weeks in several areas of Europe. In the United Kingdom, a minister of Parliament received a suspension from the Labour Party after he used a variant of the phrase in a speech.
Reports show British Home Secretary Suella Braverman called those who try to portray the statement as anything other than a call for Israel’s annihilation as disingenuous.
Based on the days when numerous Palestinian parties aspired to annihilate Israel, this phrase signifies the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. After Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) established peace in 1993 with the Oslo Accords, prominent organizations nearly halted using the phrase.
