Florida Commissioner Under Fire for Calling Michigan Congresswoman a ‘Hamas Loving Anti-Semite’ Who Might ‘Blow Up Capitol Hill’

Florida officials and Muslim advocacy groups have lambasted a city commissioner for calling Rep. Rashida Tlaib a “Hamas-loving anti-Semite” who might “blow up Capitol Hill.”

Hallandale Beach Commissioner Annabelle Lima-Taub made the comments in a Jan. 8 Facebook post, announcing that she had signed an online petition demanding that Tlaib be removed from office. Lima-Taub, originally from Israel, argued that Tlaib should not be a part of the U.S. government given her allegiance to Palestine.

The post came five days after Tlaib urged Democrats to “impeach the motherf—,” referring to President Donald Trump.

“Proudly signed. A Hamas-loving anti-Semite has NO place in government! She is a danger and [I] would not put it past her to become a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill,” Lima-Taub wrote, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Lima-Taub reportedly removed her post shortly after the Sun-Sentinel reached out to her for comment, and has since faced harsh criticism from fellow Hallandale Beach commissioners and demands for an apology from Muslim advocacy groups.

“This sort of hateful anti-Muslim rhetoric doesn’t happen in a vacuum – this President embraced it and Republicans have happily gone along with it,” Tlaib said.

“Commissioner Lima-Taub’s behavior is indefensible and a black eye for Hallandale Beach,” Commissioner Michele Lazaro said, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Vice Mayor Sabrina Javellana also condemned Lima-Taub’s post as “really inappropriate” and “outrageous.”

State director of the Muslim advocacy group Emgage, Vetnah Monessar, demanded an apology from Lim-Taub.

“That level of racism and bigotry has no place in Florida’s politics. Muslims are part of the fabric of this country. We demand that Commissioner Taub apologize to her constituents and the general public,” Monessar said.

Communications director for Florida’s chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Wilfredo Ruiz, went so far as to demand Lima-Taub’s resignation.

“Her un-American, xenophobic statements establish that she is unfit to hold the Commissioner’s seat,” Ruiz said in a statement, according to Huffington Post. “She must apologize immediately and follow up that apology with her resignation.”

Tlaib has drawn criticism for favoring Palestine. She stated publicly that she intends to be a “voice for Palestinians” and also gave a victory speech with the Palestinian flag draped around her shoulders after winning her primary race.

Tlaib also wore a traditional Palestinian Thobe to her swearing-in ceremony, during which she made a point to take her oaths on a copy of the Quran.

Tlaib was photographed with pro-Hezbollah activist Abbas Hamden, the executive director and co-founder of Al-Awda who attended her swearing-in ceremony and a subsequent dinner with her and her family.

She has also stated her support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which promotes boycotts of Israeli businesses and economic sanctions against Israel. The BDS movement has been linked through Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights to economic support of the terrorist organization Hamas.

  1. McB

    Good for that Commissioner!!! That Tlaib woman needs to be removed along with that other Anti-Semite woman Omar!!!

  2. Tony

    No muslims of any kind should be allowed in our government. Especially this one and that other one in Minnesota.

    1. Thomas Porter

      Here! Here! Imagine letting na-zi s into our gov’t in the 1940’s?

  3. Debs

    I have no problem with what she said. She’s speaking truth.

  4. John Bernard

    The truth hurts I guess….or maybe it’s far more sinister; holding anti-Semitic, anti-Anerican, Pro Hamas views while trying to fool Americans by faking shock. Anyone who supports Hamas, almost certainly holds anti-Constitutional views being as Hamas, among other things, follows an ideology that is antithetical to the very concept of personal freedom.

  5. Douglas

    I say she hit the nail on the head when she said that. They are working their way in so they can turn our country into a large toilet bowl instead of the melting pot.

  6. Denise Bassett

    TLieb has no right to be offended after the things she has said about and to our President. She has pretty much proved this lady’s point in the way she is treating Israel. She should never have been allowed to be elected and she did it illegally because she did not live in the area she ran in. She is illegal and should be kicked out of office.

  7. Lin Kreuzer

    We support Israel and we support the President. We do not support her. If you are a politician and you go against the President with such Disrespect…not policies but the President himself you are disrespectful!!! You deserve the same disrespect in kind Rashida Tlalb. Even your own father disrespects you!!!

  8. Don R Mallonee

    Americans better wake up before they find themselves without a country, you can not keep letting these people into our country without expecting them to elect people who have the same goals and point of view as themselves, I don’t know why the Democrats can’t see this but they are slowly but surely giving control to anti American people’

    1. Michael Dean Hanson

      The dems want to turn this country into a third world sh!t hole. It is their agenda and goal. It has all been a caliphate to come here, not for a better life, but to infiltrate and destroy our way of life. They do not want to assimilate or get along. They want a world wide Muslim station in life….for all of us.

  9. Vicki

    Was she sworn in on the Bible? No so why is she still in office?

  10. MO

    Screw islam and this so called woman.

  11. Ann deaton

    How come they think the Commissioner’s words were inappropriate but Rashida’s “motherf***er” comment about our President wasn’t? The left’s typical hypocrisy and double-standardness. The way they are about everything. Sick of f#&ckng dems and liberals! Its ok for businesses to refuse to serve Trump supporters but Christian businesses are trolled and sued when they refuse to serve gays. Another liberal double-standard. F#&!%ng crybabies!!!!

  12. Charles Ayres

    The “gentle jihad” we have been warned about for years by people intimately familiar with Islamic perspectives and M.O.’s, and which has already taken serious root in Britain and the EU as well as Australia and New Zealand, is now upon us, plainly obvious of the elections of several Moslems to Congress, something I never thought I would see in my lifetime. The kenyan started the ball rolling with his support of importing refugees and the subsequent growth of Dearborne and Minniapolis as Islam-dominated areas. He had 11-WH Moslem staff, most of whom were affiliated with CAIR, the political arm of Hamas in the US and which is part of the Muslim Brotherhood, both of which are recognized as terrorist organizations internationally.

    The Kenyan’s devotion to Liberalism has opened the door for thew increase in power and influence of Islam and the eventual replacement of our judicial and political systems with sharia law. This has already been tried and rejected in Irvine, Texas, but they will keep trying until a weak spot is found. Then the metastasis will strengthen. You have been warned.

  13. Jesus

    The terrorist played the victim card. Go figure! We need a constitutional amendment to prevent foreign terrorists from serving in Congress!

  14. Mickey

    These smug anti-American, anti-Semitic haters spew their hate, racism, rhetoric and when someone calls them on it, they become the victim. She needs to be impeached. Muslims should not hold office in the United States of America. They do not have allegiance to our God, Flag and Country. We got 150,000 signatures to have her removed so now we have these anti-American radicals covering for her.

    Why can she say what she did and nothing gets done. These Muslims use their Islam against Americans every day and get away with it because we are supposed to be afraid to call a spade a spade. She needs to go!

    1. Emma Fay Jackson

      I totally agree.

  15. Donna Hare

    From what I understand she does not live in the district she represents, if true it disqualifies her to that seat

  16. Jerry Bonar

    It is absolutely amazing that an individual who’s so called religion States that their followers have the obligation of killing infidels, can get elected to any government position. This is a scourge that will haunt the electorate probably forever. I say Chuck and Nancy are to blame.

  17. Joy Beum

    Lima-Taub was born in Israel. She knows a terrorist when she sees one!

  18. Bobby Dawg

    God bless my Florida politicians! Fugg that koran thumping POS and her feelings! The idiots in Mich. Should have never voted that scumbag in office!

    1. Stephen

      Amen!! Muslims should never be allowed to fill any political positions!!! Thierry beliefs are against our American Constitution.

      1. Joy Beum

        Amen! Please sign online petition to recall tlaib. She belongs to terror organization CAIR and advocates the annihilation of our ally Israel.

    2. Karen J Williams

      I agree!!

      1. Faye Warren

        You are on point aboit every thing.

    3. PS

      I backup are Florida Commissioner for everything she said with and do not apologize they can dish it out but when it’s given back they can’t handle it

  19. dew

    I certainly am proud of the the woman that stands up and all the comments that stand with her!good

  20. Shelly

    She IS exactly what the Commissioner called her! What’s the problem.

  21. James ward

    That’s a lot more tame than what I would say to this pos terrorist, and if she was sworn in on that book of crap lies she is NOT any kind of an elected official. Deport her…

  22. J. Thomas

    F’ her, her entire family, her so-called “RELIGION” and Palestine. I wonder if her and Lewis Farachon ( I don’t really care if I spelled his name correct as it should be spelled “F’ing racist, pig bitch!!) have met yet?? She is barley human herself, if you can call a “PIG human” and most definitely she’s not an American. So why the hell is she holding an office set aside for an American Representatives?? You see all DEMOCRATS have no soul or mind capable of thinking for themselves anyways. F’ing DNC TROLL and I’ll be sending her a funny drawing of Mohomed (again I do not care if I got the spelling correct or not) that I’ll be sending. Its an origional from a 11 year old who wanted to draw an “ugly” picture. Come and get it you pig-butt assholes. 😎

  23. Smalltown Roger

    What I don’t get is that she loves Palestine so much she should go there and take the fight to the source if that’s how she really feels I don’t feel that she should even have been considered eligible to run for office and if she accidentally got run over by someone’s car somewhere in Washington I think that would be a good thing…oh I’m going to get flak for that one.

    1. J. Thomas Baldwin

      No flack just a person who agrees with your statement.

    2. dan keller

      She ran on the democrat ticket I am not sure why the democrats like her.

  24. Ella

    If she needs to apologize then so do a few hundred muslims, anti-semites, democrats, etc… She has freedom of speech to say what she wants on her FB page… Doesn’t mean I agree with her, but if apology demanded of one should be demanded of all

  25. Jim works

    For liberals and democrats thats called freedom of speech!! Double standards! Since when is speaking the truth wrong! Shes a muslim she can use the f word and say anything! But call a spade a spade! you might get blown up!!

  26. That piece of TRASH in Michigan is the one that needs to resign!! She is the enemy and people need to sit up and take notice!! She has no place in our Congress!!!!!!!

    REMEMBER! ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION! ISLAM IS A POLITICAL IDEALOGY, MADE UP BY AN INSANE WAR-LORD THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO, WHO WROTE A BOOK, WANTING TO SCARE PEOPLE INTO DOING WHAT HE SAID OR THEY WOULD BE KILLED! iT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION. THE KORAN IS A LIST OF WAYS TO ABUSE AND KILL ALL WHO REFUSE TO BELIEVE WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO FORCE FEED YOU. ANYONE IN THIS DAY AND AGE WHO FOLLOWS THIS MUHAMMAD CHARACTER, HAS WRITTEN, IS NUTS! THEY ARE SIMPLY SHEEPLE, DOING WHAT OTHERS TELL THEM TO, BECAUSE THE ARE SO UNEDUCATED THEY CANT THINK FOR THEMSELVES. THESE PEOPLE ARE ENEMIES OF AMERICA.. THEY WANT TO RULE THE WORLD, AND WILL KILL ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH THEM. THEIR SHARIA LAW HAS BEEN BANNED IN AMERICA SINCE 1952, AND SHOULD BE CAUSE FOR THESE THUGS TO BE BANNED FROM BEING IN AMERICA!

    1. Clint Holmes

  34. Stephen Laskin

    1. Jeff Brady

      Truth hurts and shouldn’t be questioned

    2. Matt

      Stephen what the article did not say is the party the other Commissioners are. If against then suspect liberal.

      1. Sonny

        1. Gary Schifris

          Thanks for the comment. I wonder how she got in. I pray she is discharged ASAP.

          1. Capt. Chaos

            Massive voter fraud is how she and several others got elected. This past election was a test balloon for 2020. Voter fraud was discovered but nothing was done about it. Hold on to your a** in 2020. The socialist takeover of America will be complete.
