The anti-Israel wing of the Democrat party is already making a stir on day one of its congressional tenure. 

The office of incoming Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who claims Palestinian heritage, has placed a so-called correction on the map in her office, replacing the sovereign state of Israel with a post-it note that says “Palestine” on it. 

So Tlaib has literally wiped Israel off the map on her first day in office. Islamic supremacist and anti-Semitic activist Linda Sarsour was on hand this morning for Tlaib’s swearing-in ceremony. Sarsour arrived in Washington days after keynoting an end-of-the-year Islamist conference in Chicago.

Tlaib has often raised awareness about her so-called Palestinian heritage while promoting false information about Palestinian claims to the land governed by Israel.

Bolstering her anti-Israel bona fides, Rep. Tlaib openly supports the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which is committed to the isolation and future elimination of the state of Israel.

Upon winning her Democratic primary race in Michigan, Tlaib was seen dancing with a Palestinian flag.

Rep. Tlaib is also a person of concern to U.S. partners in the Middle East. A lengthy expose published in November in Al Arabiya voiced concern about her pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Islamist policy positions.

According to her brother, Tlaib will be sworn in today on Thomas Jefferson’s Quran (which the American Founding Father studied to better understand the jihadi Barbary Pirates), and she will be wearing a Palestinian flag.
