Tlaib Renounces Trip to West Bank Under Israel’s Conditions


USCPR Executive Director Yousef Munayyer was quoted by The New York Times in their coverage of Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s renouncement of her trip to the West Bank under Israel’s oppressive conditions.

“[The decision forced upon Rep. Tlaib was] just the smallest microcosm of the daily humiliations that Palestinians face at the hands of Israeli policies every day, when they are forced to choose between their dignity and their basic rights.”

Because of Ms. Tlaib, he said, “Americans have now had the opportunity to witness it through the eyes of a member of Congress.”
