A representative for Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said Tuesday that the lawmaker is disturbed by Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib apparently associating with a pro-Hezbollah, anti-Israel activist.

Abbas Hamideh, executive director and co-founder of Al-Awda, tweeted a photo of himself with Tlaib on Saturday, claiming that he was at her swearing-in ceremony two weeks ago and a private dinner afterwards. The photo features the two of them by a painting of Tlaib in front of the U.S. Capitol Building with an American flag as the background.

The article goes on to state the following:

Hamideh has repeatedly claimed on Twitter that Israel does not have a right to exist. He has also praised Hassan Nasrallah, the secretary general of Hezbollah — a group classified as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. and several other members of the international community.

“Senator Rubio believes it is deeply alarming to see a Member of Congress associate closely with an individual who publicly praises Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Iran-backed Hizballah terrorist group that killed 241 Americans in the 1983 Beirut bombing attack,” a spokeswoman for the Florida congressman told The Daily Caller.

    Senator Rubio thank you for bringing this up about Talib, she is a terrorist in waiting to help bring down our government ! NEVER MIND THAT SHE IS AN INCESTUOUS PIG THAT MARRIED HER OWN BROTHER AND HAD CHILDREN WITH HIM BUT IS AN IMPOSTER TO HER BEING SWORN IN AND TAKING THE OATH OF OFFICE ON THE KORAN! OUR LAWS STATE THAT IT IS ILLEGAL TO TAKE THE OATH Of OFFICE ON ANY OTHER RELIGIOUS BOOK EXCEPT OUR BIBLE! SO PLEASE HELP TO REMOVE HER FROM OUR GOVERNMENT!

    She and her other friend both need to be gone, both have backgrounds that should of stopped them being elected Into congress.
    She is making it very clear who she sides with, her friends and the groups she is in, all anti Jewish and anti Israel, as the Jewish league said she is a Democrat and nothing will happen, if they had been a Republican they would be made to resign.
    To have these woman in Congress is dangerous and it’s going to hurt America, they hate us and already are ‘starting trouble.
    Wake up America they are here to take over and we and the government are handing it to them.

    How did she get elected in the first place? Is there truly a law on the books that states you must be sworn in on the Bible? And, is there a law that states there are to be no Muslims in office? There was articles floating around on Facebook, but hard to determine if they are factual.

    I guess the problems in Europe with the influx of Muslims was not enough if a warning for us. We let the fox into the henhouse. This woman is a danger to all of us. Her use of the vile curse word to describe our president was only the beginning. Hopefully not the beginning of the end of our country.
