The seminar was hosted by People for Justice in Palestine Motion and co-sponsored by American Muslims for Palestine. Fellow Democratic lawmakers have been swift to criticize Ms. Tlaib.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, the previous head of the Democratic Nationwide Committee harshly mentioned Wednesday it was “shameful and harmful” for Ms. Tlaib to say progressives shouldn’t assist the federal government of Israel. “Proud progressives do assist Israel’s proper to exist as a Jewish and democratic state. Suggesting in any other case is shameful and harmful. Divisive rhetoric doesn’t result in peace.”

Rep. Nadler of New York additionally took umbrage with Ms. Tlaib’s remarks.

“I basically reject the notion that one can’t assist Israel’s proper to exist as a Jewish and democratic state and be a progressive,” he acknowledged on Twitter.

“On behalf of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy group, we’re calling on all Democratic workplaces within the U.S. Home of Representatives to not interact in dishonest, Islamophobic assaults on Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib in response to her commonsense statement that supporting apartheid abroad is incompatible with democratic values right here at dwelling.”

They mentioned, “This isn’t the first-time members of the Democratic Get together within the Home of Representatives have leaped to the worst attainable interpretation of what considered one of their Muslim colleagues mentioned. That is merely Islamophobic. The truth that this state of affairs has occurred with such frequency over the previous a number of years factors to the necessity for Democrats in Congress to deal with the problem of Islamophobia inside their very own ranks.”

 CAIR accused Home Democrats of marginalizing and silencing elected Muslims and Arabs “who communicate the reality to their lived experiences” and referred to as it “discriminatory and incompatible with democratic values.”
