House Dem SLAMS Rashida Talib On Her Anti-Semitism Against Israel!!
“I cannot, I cannot allow one of my colleagues to stand on the floor of the House of Representative and label the Jewish democratic State of Israel an apartheid state. I reject it,” said Deutch passionately. “Today, this caucus, this body, the House of Representatives will overwhelmingly stand with our ally the State of Israel in replenishing this defensive system.”
He continued, “If you believe in human rights, if you believe in saving lives, Israeli lives and Palestinian lives, I say to my colleague who just besmirched our ally, then you will support this legislation.”
Deutch’s time was up, so the congressman requested 15 additional seconds. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) yielded him 30 additional seconds.
“We can have an opportunity to debate lots of issues on the House floor. But to falsely characterize those as consistent with those, let’s be clear here, it’s consistent with those that advocate for the dismantling of the one Jewish state in the world,” he said. “And when there is no place on the map for one Jewish state, that’s anti-Semitism. And I reject that.”
Deutch received applause in the chamber following his remarks.
