“As Long as I’m Speaker….”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Tuesday foiled Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s attempt to host an event at the Capitol with anti-Israel groups that decry the founding of the Jewish state as a “catastrophe.”

“This event in the US Capitol is canceled,” McCarthy announced in a tweet on Tuesday. “Instead, I will host a bipartisan discussion to honor the 75th anniversary of the US-Israel relationship.”

“It’s wrong for members of Congress to traffic in anti-Semitic tropes about Israel…As long as I’m speaker, we are going to support Israel’s right to self-determination and self-defense, unequivocally and in a bipartisan fashion.”

Thank you, Speaker McCarthy, for taking the correct action doing and for speaking the truth about Israel. Next on your agenda: Rep. Tlaib should be removed from every House Committee she sits on. Don’t let this bigoted hater of American values and demonic destroyer of Israel’s right to exist go any further than she already has.
