Anti-Israel propaganda site Quds News Network reports:

Photos and stories of Palestinian grandmothers have been trending on Twitter Saturday in support of US lawmaker Rashida Tlaib, who dropped her plan to visit her grandmother in the West Bank, citing Israeli restrictions regarding free speech.

Tlaib requested to visit her 90-year-old grandmother on humanitarian grounds after she and another Democratic congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, on Thursday were barred by the occupation state from visiting Palestine in their capacity as US lawmakers. But she changed her mind about the family trip hours after it was approved on Friday under condition of not advancing the BDS movement during her trip.

Palestinian-American political activist Linda Sarsour shared a photo of her grandmother in honor of Tlaib’s ancestor and attached the hashtag “#MyPalestinianSitty” to the message. “Sitty” is the Arabic word for grandmother.

“This #MyPalestinianSitty hashtag is in honor of Rashida Tlaib’s grandmother, Sitty Muftiya,” Sarsour wrote. “Her courage, clarity, and fierceness are inspirational. She reminded Palestinians how much we have to be proud of. Our grandmothers teach life.”
