Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Wednesday called Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib a "terrorist sympathizer," accusing her of following orders from Palestinian terror organizations by organizing a protest on Capitol Hill backing a ceasefire between Israel and Palestine.

"Today [Tlaib] followed Hezbollah’s orders for a 'day of unprecedented anger.' She organized the occupation of the Cannon office building with radical Global Intifada group and anti-Israel activists JVP," Greene posted on X. "Tlaib is a terrorist sympathizer and does not belong in congress!"

Hamas called for global demonstrations to protest an alleged Israeli airstrike on a Gaza hospital, which local authorities said killed at least 500. The Israel Defense Forces have denied striking the hospital and contended that a rocket fired from Gaza misfired and struck only the facility's parking lot. Nonetheless, anti-Israel demonstrations swept the Middle East Tuesday evening, with pro-Palestinian demonstrators congregating outside U.S. and Israeli facilities in Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan.

In the U.S., supporters of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas occupied the Cannon Office Building and staged a sit-in during which they waved banners and were recorded chanting "not in our name." Capitol Police arrested many of the participants.

Greene further announced that she planned to introduce a censure resolution against Tlaib, saying "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."

Tlaib is of Palestinian heritage and a vocal supporter of statehood for their territories. The Michigan Democrat was present at the event and reposted a photo of her with demonstrators outside. It is unclear if she entered the Cannon building with the demonstrators.
