Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib was photographed with the pro-Hezbollah activist Abbas Hamideh who says Israel has no right to exist and is a staunch defender of the terrorist group Hezbollah.
Abbas Hamideh wasn’t the only one she invited. She was also spotted with Linda Sarsour. Take note of the keffiyeh in the picture.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Michigan Democrat, was called out Monday after Palestinian activist Abbas Hamideh, a staunch defender of the terrorist group Hezbollah, posted photos of the two of them posing at her swearing-in ceremony in Detroit.
Mr. Hamideh tweeted a photo of himself Saturday with Ms. Tlaib along with the caption, “I was honored to be at Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib swearing in ceremony in #Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country.”
Critics were quick to point out that Mr. Hamideh, a co-founder of the pro-Palestinian group Al-Awda, which means “right of return,” has a history of praising Hezbollah leaders such as Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and declaring that Israel has no right to exist.
In December 2015, Mr. Hamideh called convicted terrorist Samir Kuntar a “legendary Hezbollah martyr,” days after he was killed in an explosion in Damascus. Kuntar was convicted of murder and terrorism for his role in a 1979 attempted kidnapping that resulted in the deaths of four Israelis but was released in a 2008 Israeli-Hezbollah prisoner exchange.
Max Samarov, executive director for research and campus strategy of the pro-Israel group Stand With Us, said that Mr. Hamideh has a “long record” of incendiary rhetoric. More

Pro-Hezbollah activist Abbas Hamideh makes David Duke look like a normal person by comparison. He has the Capitol Building wrapped in a keffiyeh in the pic he’s holding. They aren’t messing around, are they?
