Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, reportedly hosted a terrorist supporter and extreme anti-Israeli activist Joe Catron, while inside her Washington D.C. Congressional office in early April. Truly advancing the anti-Semitic narrative Rep. Tlaib is becoming infamously known for.
 

 
The Daily Caller previously reported, Rep. Tlaib’s meeting with the extremists was conducted during the American Muslims for Palestine Advocacy Day (AMP), which requires the attendees to “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank." Via the Daily Wire.
 
"Tlaib spoke to AMP on April 8 where she told the group that she feels 'more Palestinian' when she is in Congress than she does elsewhere, according to The Investigative Project On Terrorism, who first reported on the meeting," The Daily Caller’s Molly Prince reported.
 
"AMP’s New Jersey chapter posted a photograph of Tlaib outside of her office with some of its members during the event, including Joe Catron, an avowed supporter of multiple Palestinian terrorist organizations."
 

 
According to previous reports from the Daily Caller, some of Joe Catron’s prior allegations include:
 
“Catron is a long-time extreme anti-Israel activist and has openly supported terrorist organizations. He serves as the U.S. coordinator of Samidoun, the Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network. Samidoun is an affiliate arm of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a Palestinian Marxist–Leninist and revolutionary socialist organization. The United States designated PFLP a terrorist organization in 1997, and Australia, Japan, Canada and the European Union shortly followed suit.
 
Catron’s cover photo on both of his personal Twitter and Facebook accounts is a montage of a PFLP fighter donned in the organization’s official logo, as well as rockets and soldiers pointed towards a target
over the state of Israel. It also displays the Arabic phrase “If you do [more attacks on Gaza] we will do [as well], hell is waiting for you.” The phrase is attributed to Mohammad Deif, the supreme military commander of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing.
 
In addition to supporting PFLP and Hezbollah, Catron has also been an advocate for the Sunni-Islamist fundamentalist and terrorist organization Hamas. In 2014, Catron was a participant in a press conference alongside Tawfiq Abu Naim, the head of Hamas-run security forces in Gaza. The press conference was to support Palestinian prisoners.”

It should have been obvious to us all how Rep. Tlaib was going to conduct herself after she was photographed with, "a pro-Hezbollah activist who called Israelis 'Zionist terrorists' and believes Israel has no right to exist" during her first days serving as a Congresswoman. Via the Daily Wire.

This is just the latest example of anti-Semitic behavior from Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), as she continues to support people with ties to terrorist organizations. Tlaib constantly disrespects her position as a representative in U.S. Congress, while blatantly spreading hate by deploying waves of identity politics and anti-Semetic rhetoric.
