Rush Darwish (like Rashida Tlaib) is a product of the neo-Nazi Palestinian education system, despite being raised in the United States. Therefore, Darwish will bring his anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views to public office should he be elected. Palestinian anti-Semitism and Palestinian incitement must be exposed. In addition, Palestinian Americans who seek public office should at the very least be questioned about their upbringing. The anti-Semitism that is taught in Palestinian society should have no place in American politics.
Palestinian Chicago-area congressional candidate’s remarks about Jews, Israel spark questions
“The very foundation of who I am, the values I learned growing up in Palestine, is embedded in me.”
By The Chicago Sun Times, October 24, 2019:
Rush Darwish is emerging as a contender in the primary to defeat Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., as he spotlights his Palestinian American roots, raises money in Arab American communities across the nation and works to register and turn out the vote among Palestinian Americans.
If he beats chief rivals Lipinski and Marie Newman in March in the heavily Democratic 3rd Congressional District, Darwish would be poised to become the first Palestinian American and first Muslim from Illinois to serve in Congress.
As he seeks to make history, Darwish’s newfound political muscle is bringing attention to comments he made this summer and years ago.
At a campaign kickoff event in June, Darwish in a speech incorrectly said Lipinski got $15,000 from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel influential lobbying group. However, AIPAC is not a political action committee, does not endorse and does not donate to campaigns. AIPAC members and allies, like anyone, can contribute as individuals and use their personal networks to raise money for candidates.
Darwish provided no details to back up his $15,000 assertion when the Sun-Times asked him about it, saying “what I can do at this stage” is “take a closer look. … So if I technically said it wrong, then, I would have to look into that.”
After this column was posted online Thursday, Darwish issued a statement Friday saying he made “some inaccurate comments” about AIPAC.
