New Congresswoman Tlaib displays map with Israel replaced by ‘Palestine’

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) displayed a map on her first day in the House of Representatives with a note posted over Israel that reads “Palestine.”

Buzzfeed reporter Hannah Allam posted on Twitter, “Someone has already made a slight alteration to the map that hangs in Rashida Tlaib’s new congressional office.”

Even before she was sworn in on Thursday, which was attended by Women’s March leader and anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour – who has been criticized for not condemning her ties with anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan-  Tlaib endorsed the BDS movmeent and announced her own upcoming congressional delegation trip to the West Bank, details of which have not be announced.
