Israel Granted Tlaib a One-Day Visit

Israel Granted Tlaib a One-Day Visit to Her Family, but Tlaib Refused. She said it an insult. Tlaib gave the following Twitter statement on August 16, explaining why she wouldn’t accept the offer for a one day visit. The statement reads,

“When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions.

I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me & use my love for my city to bow down to their oppressive & racist policies. Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me.

It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in — fighting against racism, oppression & injustice.”

To Reuters, Bassam Tlaib, Tlaib’s uncle described Muftia as a “second mother” to Tlaib. He explained, “Rashida sees her granny as a second mother, she has always supported her. Rashida says she owes her success to her grandmother.”

Bassam further stated that Muftia and Tlaib had not seen one another since 2006. He added, She was going to slaughter a sheep when Rashida arrived and prepare her favorite food, stuffed vine leave.

Muftia said of her granddaughter to The Washington Post, I am proud of her. Who wouldn’t be proud of a granddaughter like that? I love her and am so proud of her.
