Jerry Nadler condemns 'vile' cartoon shared by Rashida Tlaib along with Trump's 'disloyal' Jews jibe [View all]

Source: New York Daily News

Rep. Jerry Nadler slammed President Trump’s remark about Jew being “disloyal” to Israel. But he also condemned fellow Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib for sharing a cartoon he claims has a “vile underlying message."

“The growing anti-Semitism in our political dialogue is repugnant,” Nadler (D-Manhattan) said.

The senior Democratic lawmaker framed his statement as a condemnation of anti-Semitism on both sides of the political spectrum during a time that support for Israel becomes an issue in the American partisan divide.

Trump’s comments have been condemned as anti-Semitic by the Anti-Defamation League because they suggest Jews have or should have a loyalty to Israel along with the U.S.

The cartoon in question is much less clear-cut. It depicts Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu holding his hand over Tlaib’s mouth and Trump doing the same to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), in a comment on Israel’s decision to bar the two lawmakers from visiting the occupied West Bank.
