Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib recently met with and posed for photos with the Palestine Youth Movement at the Arab Texas Festival in Dallas.
PYM is a group whose members have sympathized with violence against Israel and staunchly supported the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement against the Jewish state. A PYM event to be hosted at a Toronto church was canceled earlier this year after Jewish leaders raised concerns over the group’s “open glorification of terrorists and murderers.”
Tlaib, whose parents immigrated from Palestine to the United States before her birth, has advocated for a one-state solution that requires the dissolution of Israel in the West Bank.
Tlaib and fellow congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota have been the subject of criticism for their outspoken positions regarding Israel. Last month, the lawmakers were blocked from entering Israel because of their support for the BDS movement.
Tlaib smiled and posed with the members of PYM in a photograph posted to Twitter Monday.
