(RoyalPatriot.com )- Rep. Rashida Tlaib, the Democratic congresswoman from Michigan, has reportedly paid out a massive $170,000 from her campaign funds to an anti-Israel activist who wrongly labeled Israel an “apartheid state.”
Rasha Mubarak, who runs the Unbought Power LLC advocacy company that calls for the defunding of the police and pushes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about Israel, received $147,000 from Tlaib’s campaign PAC, which is known as “Rooted in Community Leadership.”
Mubarak is also listed as a treasurer of the PAC, and has been paid a further $23,000 since October of 2020, according to filings with the Federal Elections Commission.
Mubarak describes herself as a “Palestinian Muslim American community activist,” and if you thought you’d heard of the name before, then you may well have seen one of her insane viral tweets.
In May of 2021, she claimed that the tensions in Israel aren’t clashes but “ongoing occupation.”
She claimed that there weren’t evictions, but “forced expulsions.”
“This isn’t a conflict – it’s settler colonialism, it’s ethnic cleansing, it’s oppression, it’s apartheid,” she claimed.
These aren’t clashes— it’s an ongoing occupation
These aren’t evictions— they are forced expulsions
This isn’t a conflict— it’s settler colonialism, it’s ethnic cleansing, it’s oppression, it’s apartheid
Say it loud. Say it clear. Palestine will be FREE🕊#SaveSheikhJarrah ✌🏽

Evidently, Mubarak has no idea what apartheid means – and surely her comments are offensive to those whose families experienced real apartheid.
Israel is the only true liberal democracy in the Middle East, and both Jews and Arab Muslims live side by side in the country with the same rights. That’s not apartheid.
Mubarak even attacked Rep. Ted Deutch, a Jewish Democratic congressman from Florida, for “throwing another tantrum” when he slammed Rashida Tlaib for her anti-Semitism.
Oh look it's @RepTedDeutch throwing another tantrum. He used his time to attack @RashidaTlaib for underscoring facts also made by Human Rights Watch & @btselem — Israel is indeed an apartheid state. He's flustered bc how else does one rebuttal the truth? Bullying & disparagement https://t.co/PfVWc9R5rp

It’s truly sick, isn’t it?
The question that has to be asked is…why is an elected American representative using hundreds of thousands of dollars of her campaign funds to pay for Mubarak to incite hatred and division in the United States?
