St. Louis Jewish groups host Cori Bush amid scrutiny of congresswoman’s ties to antisemitic activist
The meeting came amid scrutiny of Bush’s ties to Neveen Ayesh, a Palestinian-American activist and government relations coordinator at the Missouri Chapter of American Muslims for Palestine. Ayesh repeatedly tweeted about her hatred of Jews and expressed a desire to “set Israel on fire with my own hands & watch it burn to ashes along with every Israeli in it.”
One of the Legislative Activities in Missouri was to pass Resolution number 9 - a summary follows below.
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, by the Board of Aldermen of the City of Saint Louis that we pause in our deliberations to recognize and honor Neveen Ayesh.
A Facebook post by Ms. Ayesh about the death of a journalist included the following.
The settler colonial racist entity known as Israel assassinated Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh while wearing a readily identifiable blue Press Vest. They shot her as she reported the truth of the the occupation they enforce daily with armed, lawless brutality.
