Group Linked to Tlaib Ally and Anti-Israel Activism Shuts Down in Virginia

An organization linked to an activist who opposes Israel and raises funds for Rep. Rashida Tlaib has quietly shut down in Virginia, according to documents. The advocacy arm of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR), which trained anti-Israel protesters following an attack on Israel, filed for termination on May 28. Rasha Mubarak, the former president of this organization, has close ties to Tlaib, a progressive House member known for her anti-Israel remarks.

The reasons for the shutdown of the USCPR’s affiliate, established in 2018 as a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt entity focused on “social welfare,” remain unclear. These organizations can engage in political advocacy and unlimited lobbying. Mubarak did not respond to a request for comments.

Previously reported information indicates that a Florida-based corporation operated by Mubarak has received substantial funds from Tlaib’s campaign and leadership PAC since 2020. Mubarak has also worked with groups connected to terrorism, including one linked to a designated terrorist faction. The USCPR, along with Mubarak’s nonprofit group, has ties to other controversial organizations, including those with reported connections to Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Additionally, Mubarak served as a top staffer for the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization previously linked to terrorism financing. These associations raise concerns about the connections between organizations promoting anti-Israel agendas and groups associated with terrorism.
