Rashida Tlaib’s Father Throws Her Under The Bus: ‘Lied Big-Time To Get Elected’

Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s father found himself in a difficult spot to do the right thing. Harbi Elabed, who is a proud immigrant from Jerusalem and worked for the Ford Motor Company in Detroit, does not share his daughter’s radicalized leftist agenda. “She lied big time to get elected,” said the 61-year-old. It’s a sick story of how power corrupts. You don’t want to miss this.

If you don’t think the Democratic Party is being controlled by Islamists who hate America and Israel, then this information is going to shock you. We thought it would be important to do a deep dive into the background of Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who became one of the most powerful women in the Democratic Party.

Rashida Tlaib started her political career in 2008 as a Michigan State Representative taking over the seat of Steve Tobocman, who she was working for at the time as an intern. He had to vacate the seat due to term limits.

It was during this time that Tlaib and her husband Fayez Tlaib made headlines when they cheated on their taxes. In fact, Rashida claims “it was a mistake,” but it happened year after year until they were finally caught in 2014. And this is where her father, Harbi Elabed, comes in.

It seems Rashida’s radical far-left anti-Israel agenda isn’t something her father endorsed. He was born in East Jerusalem. He came to America where he worked on the assembly line at the Detriot Ford Motor Company plant.

And when he was faced with questions by reporters about “where she lived,” he found himself in a quandary. 

In 2010, Tlaib was running for re-election, and she signed an affidavit to Michigan Board of Elections swearing her address was in Detriot when really she lived in the suburb of Dearborn. The problem was Dearborn was not part of the district she had just won.

The newspaper article was scrubbed from the internet when The Detroit News migrated to a new website but was available in a subscription-based digital archive. The Detroit News reported:

He said his daughter misrepresented her residency when she signed an election affidavit in 2008 with the Wayne County Clerk claiming she was a citizen of Detroit.

According to that affidavit, Tlaib claimed she lived at 9123 Rathbone in Detroit. That house is owned in part by her father, Harbi Elabed, and he now says she did not live there and he was only recently made aware that she had claimed so.

“She lied,” said Elabed, 61, an immigrant from Jerusalem and father of 14 who prides himself on Old World values of parental fealty. “She lied big-time to get elected. I never teach her that way. I teach her the right way. It’s my house. She didn’t live there. She lived in Dearborn in her house with her husband and boy.”

When this information came back to light in 2018, it sparked Michigan residents to start an online petition to “impeach” Rashida Tlaib. However, by this time the far-leftist Muslim’s anti-Israel connections to ruthless Islamic extremists also played a role.

Rashida Tlaib is being groomed to take Nancy Pelosi’s spot as the Speaker of the House and become the third most powerful politician in America. 

It’s hard to pinpoint when Talib became radicalized. It is clear George Soros is deeply invested in Tlaib going back to 2016 when she was making her big run to become a U.S. Congresswoman. Tlaib was paid $139,873 by Soros’s group in 2016, tax forms show. Between 2016 and 2017, Tlaib received a total of $225,180 directly from Soros.

One of Tlaib’s close friends is CAIR leader Zahra Billoo who has supported Palestinian terrorists attacking Israelis and openly called for the destruction of the Jewish state, in a not-so-veiled threat: “From the river to the sea, #Palestine will be free.”

Tlaib tweeted to Billoo:So good to see you sis! I will always speak truth to power because I got you to protect.”

“It is important to note that Tlaib almost certainly owes her victory to Islamist support. She had raised the most money in the 2018 Democratic primary by far — over $1.3 million — almost double the haul of her closest competitor,” reported the Daily Caller. “Tlaib won the primary by a mere 1 percent, and her massive fundraising advantage may well have been the margin of victory.”

Tlaib has been groomed by those insiders of the Muslim Brotherhood like Billoo and Linda Sarsour. The 42-year-old Congresswoman backs all their radical ideology including the complete eradication of Israel. And they are all so invested to see the Michigan Trump-hater in the number three spot of power in the United States.

Sound crazy? We thought so too, but the evidence is overwhelming. 

First, we have the huge bankroll Tlaib’s been given from Soros to the Islamic organizations. Second, we have Islamic extremists penning op-eds in left-leaning political sites like the HuffPo questioning Pelosi and promoting Tlaib.

Then, we have the Israelis warning us Rashida Tlaib is dangerous and her Islamist backers are making a play for the Speakership in an article titled, “Rashida Tlaib Aiming For Nancy Pelosi’s Job.” Lastly, we have Rashida Tlaib herself challenging and making a direct threat to Nancy Pelosi on CBS News Wednesday night. That’s unheard of—to have one party member blatantly attack their own Speaker.

Rep. Ilhan Omar might be in the limelight more, but it’s Rashida Tlaib who poses the real threat according to all the evidence we have found. We must expose the far-leftists and the Islamic extremists who are united in this evil agenda to destroy America as we know it.
