“It’s breathtaking to hear @RashidaTlaib claim to be ‘behind the curtain’. Those who prevent a ‘free Palestine’ are the ‘same people’ who exploit ‘normal Americans’. We’ve heard this kind of ugly #antisemitic dog whistle before, but it’s appalling when it comes from a member of Congress, “Greenblatt tweeted.
