    Marco Rubio Blasts Rashida Tlaib's Dual Loyalty Suggestion: 'Typical Anti-Semitic Line'

    January 7, 2019
    Tlaib stepped in it again over the weekend when she suggested in a tweet that several U.S. senators have dual loyalties to both the United States and Israel.

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and the American Jewish Committee on Monday pushed back at Tlaib, decrying her statement as "outrageous" and "anti-Semitic."

    Rubio, along with Senator James Risch (R-Idaho), last week reintroduced pro-Israel legislation that did not get passed in the last Congress. The Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019 combines several Middle East-related items into a single bill, including Syria withdrawal and financial aid to Israel.

    One section of the bill, called Combating BDS Act of 2019, would protect states that penalize Israel boycotters. According to Rubio, Democrat leaders are trying to avoid a vote on his bill because it would expose how many Democrat BDS supporters are now in the Senate.

    The bill empowers "state and local governments in the United States to counter the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement’s discriminatory economic warfare against the Jewish state," a press release on Senator Rubio's website says.

    "They forgot what country they represent," Tlaib, a Palestinian American, wrote on Twitter Sunday. "This is the U.S. where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality."
    They forgot what country they represent. This is the U.S. where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality. Maybe a refresher on our U.S. Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away. https://t.co/KkmqjR58ZM

    Rubio hit back on Twitter Monday morning: "This 'dual loyalty' canard is a typical anti-Semitic line. #BDS isn’t about freedom & equality, it’s about destroying #Israel."

    An irony here, AIPAC funded Rubio, who is a Latino, accuses a Rep. Tlaib , who is a Semite, of anti-semitism.

    Be interesting to see if MSM reports and analyze this news story.



    In other news, this is from RT and should be read with grains of salt:

    America's last? First Senate bill of 2019 aims to protect Israel from boycott, report reveals

    7 Jan, 2019 08:21

    With the start of the 2019 legislative session, one might hope the US Senate would prioritize ending the two-week government shutdown. Instead, the Senate’s first bill of the year reportedly aims to protect Israel from boycotts.

    According to The Intercept, the first piece of legislation to be rolled out by the 2019 GOP-controlled Senate will give the US government the authority to cut ties with companies that choose to boycott Israel. The not-very-America-first decree is part of a series of foreign policy-related measures which will make up S.1 – the designation given to the symbolically important first bill of the session.

    The boycott-banning legislation has apparently taken precedence over the ongoing government shutdown – already the third-longest on record, shuttering nine departments and leaving hundreds of thousands of government workers without paychecks.
