According to The Palestinian Chronicle, “US House Representative Rashida Tlaib has caused a stir after pointing out on Twitter that illegal Jewish settlements currently receive tax-exempt status in America, a contravention of international law.
In an open letter, she called on US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to examine the legitimacy of the status of US-based entities supporting settlements that perpetuate the forced removal of Palestinians from their land.
Tlaib is the first and only Palestinian American member of the US Congress. Throughout her term as a congresswoman, she has been consistently vocal about Israel’s racist policies and human rights violations against Palestinians.”
Did you know organizations funding illegal Israeli settlements currently get tax exempt status, in clear violation of international law AND US federal tax law? Treasury Dept. @SecYellen must act to enforce US law and end these organizations 501(c)(3) status. pic.twitter.com/WVfv5bx2mE

How often has Rashida Tlaib decried the inhumanity of Palestinian terrorists? Slashing the throats of elderly Jews, bombing cafes, and buses, launching hundreds of rockets into populated civilian areas. Anybody? Please provide links to sources quoting America’s darling Palestinian member of Congress.
