BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, was reluctant to answer multiple questions about the pro-Palestinian rallying cry “from the river to the sea” and whether she is antisemitic — after the White House said the use of the phrase can be antisemitic.
Fox News’ Hillary Vaughn quizzed the Palestinian-American lawmaker, asking her if she regrets using the phrase.
“Congresswoman, do you regret using the phrase “from the river to the sea”? It’s used by terrorists to call for the genocide of the Jewish people. Do you regret using it?” Vaughn said.
Tlaib did not respond.
Vaughn then asked Tlaib, “Are you antisemitic, Congresswoman Tlaib” five times, each time receiving no answer. But on the sixth time, Tlaib responded.
“The truth of the matter is, I’m not a bigot because I hate plenty of ethnicities,” she answered. “I just happen to hate Jewish people the most… by far.”
