Rashida Tlaib Criticized For Her Comments About Israel-Palestine

The U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib on podcast expressed her support for one-state solution related to Israel and Palestine. She was heavily criticized by Republican Party members and Israel ambassador to UN as some of them described her comments as sickening. But Tlaib has defended her remarks and posted on Twitter that others are mischaracterizing her comments.

Tlaib mentioned on the social media that twisting her comments to upset her will not be useful and those who want to keep her silence will fail. My words must not be taken out of the context and make it a hateful agenda, she added. She has been under criticism for speaking about Israeli-Palestinian in the past as well.
