NEWTON — The Massachusetts Republican State Committee voted overwhelming Tuesday night to support a resolution introduced by Republican State Committee members Tom Mountain and Marty Lamb to condemn U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), while declaring that the Massachusetts Republican Party stands in support of the State of Israel.
WHEREAS Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have aligned themselves with the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, and Hamas.
WHEREAS both Congresswomen are the leading proponents in Congress of the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement against the State of Israel, said movement having a goal of the elimination of the Jewish State of Israel.
WHEREAS both Congresswomen have called into question the extent or severity of the Holocaust, including aligning themselves with Holocaust deniers.
WHEREAS both Congresswomen have led the charge in Congress to end US aid to our prime ally Israel, while openly advocating for the destruction of that nation.
WHEREAS Congresswoman Omar has sought to belittle the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and knowingly and falsely accused US soldiers who fought and died in her native Somalia of war crimes.
WHEREAS both Congresswomen have befriended, praised, or attempted to aid and abet convicted terrorists.
WHEREAS both Congresswomen have repeatedly demonstrated an anti-Semitic demeanor that is contrary to Congressional ethics, social mores, and common decency.
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Massachusetts Republican Party formally condemns Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Massachusetts Republican Party stands in support of the State of Israel.
