In the recent legislation that granted Israel $1 billion of military aid for their Iron Dome defensive system and that passed in Congress, Rashida Tlaib, the US representative for the 13th congressional district for Michigan denounced Israel as an apartheid regime. She was the only one to do so.

In particular, Tlaib said:

The Israeli government is an apartheid regime - not my words, the
words of Human Rights Watch and Israel’s own human rights watch
organisation B’Tselem.

The military aid had originally been part of another bill; but was not passed, hence the separate legislation above.

Over the last few years, two human rights organisations: Human Rights Watch and B'Tselem have called the regime in Israel, an apartheid regime. The latter organisation is based in Israel.

Has anyone, other than Rashida Tlaib, who happens to be Palestinian-American (she was born in Detroit to Palestinian parents), called Israel a apartheid regime in Congress.
