The phrase, which has historical roots and has been associated with movements opposed to the state of Israel, was employed by Tlaib Tweet of a video ad calling on Joe Biden to push for a ceasefire.

It has also brought to the forefront the ongoing discourse within the United States regarding its domestic and international stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
