'From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free,' the tweet read

Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has been caught promoting a tweet containing a phrase associated with calling for the elimination of Israel.

The tweet was called out by StopAntisemitism.org, which stated:

“From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

StopAntisemitism.org noted:

“Rashida Tlaib RT’s out the same message that got Marc Lamont Hill canned from CNN."

“From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free – code for eradicating the State of Israel and its millions of Jews. Reminder – this is a sitting U.S. Congresswoman.”

The Daily Beast wrote that the meaning for the phrase was a follows:

The river in this formulation is the Jordan, the naturally occurring eastern border of Israel and of the West Bank; the sea is the Mediterranean to the west. Uttered by advocates of the Palestinian cause for decades, the pithy slogan very pointedly makes no place for Israel. It evokes a strip of Middle Eastern land where Israel is no more, replaced by a unified Palestinian entity in the space it once occupied. It could be that this entity would welcome and protect a Jewish population. But when supporters of the Jewish state hear those 10 words, they worry about their potentially violent implications.

In 2018, CBB fired then contributor Marc Lamont Hill for using the phrase.

The slogan was associated with “Palestinian extremists,” during a speech at the United Nations, according to The Times of Israel.

According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Hamas repeatedly uses the phrase.

The ADL described the phrase as “extreme" in a recent report.

Sharon Nazarian, the ADL’s senior vice president for international affairs, responded to Hill’s remarks telling the Jewish Journal that “those calling for ‘from the river to the sea’ are calling for an end to the State of Israel.”

“It is a shame that once again, this annual event at the United Nations does not promote constructive pathways to ‘Palestinian solidarity’ and a future of peace, but instead divisive and destructive action against Israel,” Nazarian added.

Tlaib was accused last week of anti-Semitism after she reacted to the announcement of Joe Biden’s pick for secretary of state, Antony Blinken.

“So long as he doesn’t suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against Netanyahu’s racist and inhumane policies,” Tlaib tweeted.

“The Palestinian people deserve equality and justice.”

Americans Against Antisemitism founder Dov Hikind responded:

“Biden names a Jew to his cabinet What’s Rashida’s response?! ‘Welp, as long as that Judische pick doesn’t stop me from focusing my hatred on one country, Israel, then he’s a good Jew!’ It’s not your 1A right you’re trying to protect but your vile Jew-hatred! That’s ALL yours!”

The Republican Jewish Coalition responded:

“You can just say you’re worried because he’s Jewish…"

Author Christina Sommers responded:

“Your antisemitism is showing.”

Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby responded:

“For some members of Congress, hating on Jews is always Priority #1.”
