The Palestinian activist who appeared at Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s swearing-in ceremony broke his silence about his views and his relationship with the congresswoman on Tuesday night.
Abbas Hamideh, the executive director and co-founder of Al-Awda: The Palestinian Right to Return Coalition, tweeted a photo of himself with Tlaib, saying that he attended her swearing-in ceremony two weeks ago and a private dinner afterward. The photo features the two of them holding a painting of Tlaib in front of the U.S. Capitol Building with an American flag as the background.
“My relationship with Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is that she is a member of the Palestinian community. When she first started running for Congress, people in the community were asking me to support her, and I did,” Hamideh explained to The Daily Caller. “Now, do I know her on a personal level as far as, you know, like we’re friends and we hang out? No.
