Democrat Lawmaker: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib’s BDS Movement is “Bigoted” – It Seeks to Ultimately Destroy Israel
Democratic lawmaker Rep. Brad Schneider blasted radical squad members Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for their “bigoted” views on the BDS movement. The Illinois Representative said the BDS movement seeks to eliminate and destroy Israel.
Last week Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib introduced legislation to support the terror-funded BDS movement.
BDS stands for the movement to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel. A visit to the BDS website (www.BDSmovement.net) quickly reveals that BDS has a far more radical goal: eliminating Israel as a Jewish state. This is not an exaggeration. This is something BDS leaders readily admit.
The proposed legislation by Ilhan Omar compares Israel to:
** Nazi Germany
** Imperial Japan
** Soviet Russia
The Washington Examiner reported:
Democratic Rep. Brad Schneider called the boycott, divest, and sanction movement “bigoted” and argued that those who support it don’t understand its “impact.”
CNN’s Dana Bash interviewed Schneider on Tuesday about a House resolution he is co-sponsoring that is expected to be voted on later in the day.
“It condemns the global BDS movement, boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, because it opposes two states, it denies the Jewish connection to the land of Israel and it is seeking to delegitimize and ultimately destroy the state of Israel,” Schneider began. “So this resolution bringing the House together, as you noted it has almost 350 co-sponsors, three-quarters of both the Democratic and Republican sides support this resolution and I expect it to pass overwhelmingly tonight.”
