While Michigan Democrats usually stick together, for Senator Gary Peters, the recent comments by Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Dearborn, Southfield, Franklin, Bingham Farms, Southfield) celebrating the pro-terror group Hamas were a step too far. Tlaib spoke at The People’s Conference for Palestine, which sources said was organized by The People’s Forum, a far-left advocacy group largely funded by Neville Roy Singham, a businessman with ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Beyond her support for Palestinians, Tlaib accused President Joe Biden of being complicit in a genocide in Gaza and asking where his red line was, and of doing the bidding of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as “attacking the authority” of the International Criminal Court. Peters responded in a statement that he “understands how personal the issues around the war between Israel and Hamas are for Michiganders and believes that individuals have the right to gather and advocate for their personal beliefs. However, he believes that there is no place for violent rhetoric or advocacy of violence in these discussions.” The statement further said, “As Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Senator Peters is also concerned that foreign adversaries, like the Chinese and Russian governments, have and will continue to try to exploit divisions within U.S. domestic politics to sow chaos, something our nation’s intelligence officials have warned about.”
