Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?
Michigan Democrat Representative Rashida Tlaib attacked President Biden over his support of Israel.
In a video posted on X, Tlaib included video of Biden expressing support of Israel followed by graphic pictures of injured and dead people in Gaza, as well as U.S. protests in support of Palestinians.
Tlaib warned Biden he will suffer in the 2024 presidential election if he doesn’t support a ceasefire.
The post on X has over 2.7 million views.

The attack by Tlaib is a strong rebuke of the president and he is facing pressure from other Democrats, including New York Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“Beyond just a ceasefire, I think it is time for our party to press upon the president to really be a mediating force in what we are seeing in these atrocities in Gaza,” said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in a brief interview. “It is up to the United States to set that standard.”
A New York Times story about Tlaib’s video discusses the division within the Democrat Party over Israel and described the video by Tlaib as a “broadside against the president.”
During a CNN interview, Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA) refused to criticize Tlaib.

Tlaib’s threat over Biden losing votes for his support of Israel is backed by a report by NBC News.
The news story reports Muslim Americans will not vote for Biden in 2024 because of Israel.
CNN had a similar news story reporting Muslim Americans in Michigan are thinking twice about voting for Biden. One voter speaking about Biden said, “It has become almost impossible for me, morally, to vote for someone that’s taken the stances that he’s taken in the past few weeks.”
Since Democrats always put politics and power before anything else, look out for Biden to pressure Israel to back off its attack against Hamas in the near future. Biden will certainly throw Israel under the bus to get votes especially in the critical state of Michigan.
