Controversial Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D) was recently pictured wearing a T-shirt that completely erases the modern state of Israel from the map. In its place? Palestinian rule.

The image, first posted to Twitter by user Alex VanNess, appears to show Tlaib sporting the shirt while promoting a new book by Linda Sarsour, a fellow surrogate for the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is also a vocal critic of Israel.

The shirt shows the borders of modern-day Israel colored in with Arabic letters that spell Palestine, indicating a rejection of a two-state solution and the eradication of a Jewish nation-state.

According to an advertisement for the shirt online, wearers can "stand in solidarity with Palestine" by donning the "beautiful Palestinian tee shirt."

"An outlined map of Palestine is filled with red, white, and green Arabic letters that look stunning from a distance and spell the word Palestine up close. A patterned shemagh wraps around the neck of the Palestinian state like the brave soldiers whose boots stand on the dusty ground," the product description reads.

Tlaib has been outspoken about her anti-Israel sentiments before. Last summer, after Palestinian terrorists murdered a 17-year-old Jewish girl while she was hiking with her family, Tlaib blamed the attack on "Israeli occupation." She also came under fire for retweeting a fake news story erroneously attributing the death of a Palestinian boy to "violent Israeli settlers."

The Michigan congresswoman's criticism against Israel as well as support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement has earned her scorn from pro-Israel groups such as the Anti-Defamation League. Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) were even blocked from entering Israel last year due to their BDS support.
