US’s only Palestinian-American Congresswoman censured over comments

Michigan Democrat Defends Pro-Palestinian “River to Sea” Chant as an “Aspirational Call for Freedom”1

A Michigan Democrat, the US’s only Palestinian-American Congresswoman, has faced censure over her comments defending a pro-Palestinian chant. She defended the controversial phrase “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” as an “aspirational call for freedom.” The chant has been criticized for its historical context and implications.

The phrase “from the river to the sea” refers to the entire territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, encompassing both Israel and the Palestinian territories. It has been used by various groups with different intentions, including those advocating for a one-state solution or the elimination of Israel.

Critics argue that the chant ignores the existence of Israel and could be interpreted as a call for the elimination of the Jewish state. Supporters, on the other hand, view it as a call for Palestinian self-determination and freedom.

The controversy highlights the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the sensitivity surrounding language and symbols used in discussions about the region. And the Bias US government and Lawmakers have in favor of Israel

More than 1,400 Israelis were killed in the 7 October attack by Hamas. The Hamas-run health ministry says that more than 10,300 Palestinians have since been killed in Israeli attacks.

The Biden administration has dismissed calls for a ceasefire in favor of a humanitarian pause to allow aid, food and water into Gaza.
