Rashida Tlaib thrilled young members of the Palestine Youth Movement, when she visited the Arab Festival in Dallas, Texas. The PYM are well known as a “terrorist-sympathizing, anti-Israel group.”
Tlaib’s home Democrat district, near Detroit, Michigan, hosts one of America’s largest Muslim communities, so the Muslim Congresswoman made a special effort to visit the young terrorist sympathizers, and encourage their contributions to the jihad.
The PYM is supposedly a “transnational, independent, grassroots movement of young Palestinians dedicated to the liberation of our homeland and people.”
They have often been criticized for documented support of terrorist groups including the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). They unabashedly campaign to “stop the Zionist occupation and colonization of all Palestine.”
Another thing the PYM insists on is “full support for the Palestinian resistance.” Part of that resistance is the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions against Israel (BDS) movement that got Tlaib in trouble with Israel this summer.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, attendees at one PYM event in San Francisco plotted to kidnap Israeli soldiers, according to a video of that event captured by the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America.
They chanted “Son of Gaza, kidnap a soldier and free our prisoners. No siege and no hunger – no trading with the blood of the martyrs.” Pundits call it “a direct promotion of acts of terrorism.”
Their Facebook page has memorialized so-called Palestinian martyrs who were killed or arrested while carrying out terrorist attacks on Israel. At least three were operatives of Hamas.

Along with Rep. Ilhan Omar, Tlaib was banned from travel through Israel last month. Their trip was “co-sponsored by the anti-Israel organization Miftah, led by Hanan Ashrawi, who is ‘a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s executive committee and supporter of BDS.'”
Tlaib begged to be allowed to see her grandmother, and was allowed to do so. When she found out there was a condition, she was not allowed to badmouth Israel while she was there, she decided she didn’t want to see her grandmother that bad after all.
