House votes to table Tlaib censure resolution
After the demonstration, Greene called Tlaib a "terrorist sympathizer" and said she "followed Hezbollah’s orders for a 'day of unprecedented anger.'"
The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to table a censure resolution against Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
The chamber voted 222-186, with 23 Republicans joining with Democrats to table the resolution.
Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced the resolution last week after the Democrat participated in an Israel-Palestine pro-ceasefire demonstration that saw participants stage a sit-in in the Cannon Office Building on Capitol Hill.
After the demonstration, Greene called Tlaib a "terrorist sympathizer" and said she "followed Hezbollah’s orders for a 'day of unprecedented anger.'" Tlaib is of Palestinian background and is a vocal supporter of Palestinians.
"After what she did today, I expect even Democrats will join in. She is an Israel hating America hating woman who does not represent anything America stands for," Greene said at the time.
Tlaib also attracted scrutiny for her myriad criticisms of Israel amid the ongoing conflict and support of the claim that Gaza hospital had been bombed by Israel, despite considerable intelligence suggesting a misfired rocket launched by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad was responsible for an explosion that occurred in the hospital's parking lot.
