Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on Wednesday contradicted his colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib‘s (D-MI) claim that progressives cannot support “Israel’s apartheid government.”

“I fundamentally reject the notion that one cannot support Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish and democratic state and be a progressive,” he wrote.

The New York Democratic representative was responding to Tlaib’s comments during an online seminar, in which she claimed progressives cannot support “Israel’s apartheid government.”

“I want you all to know that among progressives, it has become clear that you cannot claim to hold progressive values, yet back Israel’s apartheid government,” Tlaib reportedly said.

“The need to oppose Israel’s government’s apartheid rule is obvious. The path to freedom for Palestine is long and daunting, we must see through to its end. We owe it to not only Palestinians, [but] oppressed people all over the world who understand that our struggles are linked to one another,” the congresswoman added.

Tlaib, who has Palestinian ancestry, has been vocal about her opposition to Israel.

Nadler was echoed by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), who said: “The outrageous progressive litmus test on Israel by @RashidaTlaib is nothing short of antisemitic. Proud progressives do support Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish and democratic state. Suggesting otherwise is shameful and dangerous. Divisive rhetoric does not lead to peace.”
