United States Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a “genocidal maniac” and condemned members of Congress who engage with him. 

“Genocidal maniac. Every member of Congress who sits down with this murderer is supporting a war criminal,” Tlaib wrote in a post on her Instagram stories on Wednesday.

“We will never forget,” the US Congresswoman added.

This comes amid increasing criticism toward US President Joe Biden and his administration’s blind support for Israel following its aggression on the Gaza Strip, starting on October 7.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 21,507 Palestinians have been killed, and 55,915 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7. 

Palestinian and international estimates say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

In November, the House of Representatives voted to censure Tlaib for a video shared on November 3 in which she accused Biden of supporting Israel’s genocide.

“Joe Biden supported the genocide of the Palestinian people. The American people won’t forget. Biden, supports a ceasefire now. Or don’t count on us in 2024,” the caption read. 

The controversy was fueled further as the video included the slogan, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

Introduced by Republican Rich McCormick, the resolution to censure Tlaib was approved by a vote of 234-188, with the support of 22 Democrats who joined Republicans in rebuking Tlaib.

The resolution accused Tlaib, the only Palestinian-American member of Congress, of “promoting false narratives” regarding the October 7 military operation.

  1. Rashida Tlaib is a brave and steadfast champion of Palestinian rights. As arguably the most prominent American figure in this country’s internal resistance to U.S. participation in Israeli war crimes and apartheid regime, she is constantly vilified, slandered, and threatened, but stands strong. She is truly admirable.

  2. I agree with T. Jone’s assessment of Tlaib. I went to Israel/Palestine in 2018 and to be honest every Israeli I met was a complete asshole. In Hebron I wondered if I could join one of those innumerable parades of young Palestinians carrying a coffin of another of their murdered youth through the nighttime streets of the city–it was totally safe. I brought a cheap microscope to bring the Palestine Biodiversity Center and the Israelis took it away from me; they didn’t want their slaves to have any resources to grow their hearts and minds. We humans need to deal with the very great problem of identity; all humans are 99.9% the same family. The identity stories are all in your mind.
