Far-left “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) will host an event with anti-Israel groups at the Capitol Building on Wednesday that decries the founding of the Jewish State as a “catastrophe.”
The event titled “Nakba 75 & the Palestinian People” uses the Arabic term for the events surrounding the founding of Israel – Nakba – which means “catastrophe.”
“May 15th marks 75 years since the beginning of the Nakba, which means ‘catastrophe,’” reads a description of the event, which will be held at the Capitol Visitor Center.
“Seventy-five years ago, Zionist militias and the new Israeli military violently expelled approximately three-quarters of all Palestinians from their homes and homeland in what became the state of Israel.”
The organizers of the event also say they hope to educate members of Congress and their staff on the “ongoing Nakba to which Israel continues to subject Palestinians.”
One of the groups behind the event, Jewish Voice for Peace, is described by the Anti-Defamation League as a “radical anti-Israel activist group that advocates for a complete economic, cultural and academic boycott of the state of Israel” and that “celebrates figures who have been convicted of engaging in terrorism.”
