Hallandale Beach, Florida, Commissioner Anabelle Lima-Taub earlier this week posted a hateful message on Facebook that Rashida Tlaib, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, was a “Hamas-loving anti-Semite” and that she would “blow up Capitol Hill.”
We write to express our deep concern regarding Commissioner Anabelle Lima-Taub’s hateful post calling a sitting member of Congress “a danger” who might someday “become a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill.” This type of rhetoric is alarming for the people of Hallandale Beach, and frankly, for all Americans.
This is especially troubling at a time when hate crimes against American Muslims and other communities are at an all time high.
Commissioner Lima-Taub has demonstrated that she is not capable of doing this in Hallandale Beach, and we
We’re thankful that the City Commission is considering an official censure of her actions: we urge you to vote in favor of this resolution and send a strong message to your community that bigotry is unacceptable.
We encourage you to vote for censure as a first step and to strongly encourage Commissioner Lima-Taub to step down so someone more capable of actively serving people of all faiths should take her place.
