JNS.org – Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) displayed a map on her first day in the House of Representatives with a note posted near Israel that reads “Palestine.”

Buzzfeed reporter Hannah Allam posted on Twitter, “Someone has already made a slight alteration to the map that hangs in Rashida Tlaib’s new congressional office.”

Even before she was sworn in on Thursday — the ceremony of which was attended by Women’s March leader and anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour, who has been criticized for not condemning her ties with antisemitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan—Tlaib endorsed the BDS movement.

She also announced her own upcoming congressional delegation trip to the West Bank, details of which have not been publicized.
