Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) recently met with members of the terrorist-sympathizing, anti-Israel group Palestine Youth Movement, according to a picture on social media featuring the lawmaker with supporters of the organization.

The Washington Free Beacon first reported on Tlaib’s visit with members of the group. It reportedly took place at the Arab Texas Festival of Dallas, according to social media posts.

Yesterday - Arab - Texas - Festival - Dallas

“Yesterday, we tabled at the Arab Texas Festival of Dallas! While doing community outreach, Palestinian congresswoman @RashidaTlaib stopped by our table,” a tweet from the group’s Twitter account read.

Rashida - Stances - Palestine - Zionist - Backlash

“Thank you Rashida for continuing to stand by your bold stances on Palestine despite unrelenting Zionist backlash!” it added:

The organization describes itself as a “transnational, independent, grassroots movement of young Palestinians dedicated to the liberation of our homeland and people” and has been under fire due to its documented support of terrorist groups – like the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)– and antisemitic vitriol.

Group - Zionist - Occupation - Colonization - Palestine

The group openly calls to “stop the Zionist occupation and colonization of all Palestine” and requires “full support for the Palestinian resistance,” which includes emphatically supporting the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions against Israel (BDS) movement– something Tlaib openly supports.

As Free Beacon reported:

PYM - History - Activity - Hostility - State

PYM has a history of anti-Israel activity that has spilled into outright hostility toward the Jewish state. This includes a 2018 event held in San Francisco in which attendees called for Israeli soldiers to be kidnapped, according to a video of that event captured by the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America, or CAMERA.

In Facebook postings PYM has memorialized so-called Palestinian martyrs, or those killed or imprisoned while carrying out terrorist attacks on Israel. At least three of those honored by the organization were known operatives of the Hamas terror group.
