Tlaib retweeted an unverified story on Twitter Saturday alleging that “a Herd of violent #Israeli settlers” kidnapped, assaulted and threw a 7-year-old Palestinian boy into a well.
ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said Sunday that Tlaib must apologize for promoting the wild accusation. “This is an example of how the blood libel works in 2020,” Greenblatt wrote on Twitter.
“@RashidaTlaib retweets a vicious lie steeped in centuries-old accusations used to demonize Jews, then says nothing when it’s disproven,” Greenblatt added. “An apology is overdue.”
