Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan shared a meme on their Instagram stories Friday from cartoonist Carlos Latuff, who’s work has been accused of being anti-Semitic and has trivialized the holocaust.
The meme featured Latuff’s cartoon of President Donald Trump and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu covering the congresswomen’s mouths, accompanied by a Star of David. (RELATED: Netanyahu Takes Shot At Obama In Campaign Ad)
“The more they try to silence us, our voices rise,” Tlaib wrote in her caption. “The more they try to weaken us, the stronger we become. The more they try to discredit us, the truth prevails.”
So @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib just shared this cartoon by Carlos Latuff who is well known for his work mocking Jewish victims of the holocaust.
The post comes days after Omar and Tlaib were denied entrance into Israel due to their support for an international boycott of the Jewish state. Tlaib was granted a humanitarian visa to visit her 90-year-old grandmother, but turned it down, claiming that Israel was trying to silence her.
