(WCJB) - Florida Republican Kat Cammack, who was recently elected to represent Congressional District 3, said she plans to put the Israeli flag outside of her office which is next door to Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan).

Tlaib, who is of Palestinian descent, has called for ending aid to Israel and has expressed support for the ’'boycott, divestment and sanctions’' campaign against the Jewish state.

“She (Tlaib) has some very strong opinions about Israel, and I have some very strong opinions about Israel, so I have made a pledge that I’m going to be planting the flag of Israel outside my door right next to the American flag,” said Rep. Cammack.

“I think it’ll be very helpful as she walks past it every day.”

Rep. Cammack said the student group Gators for Israel has prepared a package to be sent to Washington that includes the flag for display.
