CNN ripped Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) after she outrageously lied and revised history over the weekend concerning the Jews and the creation of the modern State of Israel following World War II. Not even that leftist rag could stomach her historical revisionism. It’s obscene and deeply offensive to the Jews. Plus, she left out the key fact that Palestinian leaders allied themselves with Hitler and shared his vision of Jewish genocide.
“There’s always kind of a calming feeling when I think of the tragedy of the Holocaust, that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence, in many ways, has been wiped out … in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-Holocaust, post-tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time,” Tlaib said during an interview on the “Skullduggery” podcast. “And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that in many ways.”
CNN’s John King, of all people, was the one who pointed out that Tlaib “ignored the fact that Palestinian leaders at the time allied themselves with Hitler,” adding that “total war was how the Arab world reacted to the declaration of Israeli independence.” Good for him… that just won some points back for CNN.
“She can’t rewrite that history, and you can’t project revisionist history, so why?” King queried CNN global affairs analyst and former State Department negotiator Aaron David Miller. “They were considering extermination of the entire Jewish community there as well,” Miller said of Palestinian leaders who believed German forces might arrive in the region after defeating allied forces in North Africa. “So this was ill-timed, ill-advised, and I think it clearly is simply going to antagonize and polarize the already polarized debate in Washington.”

“First of all, you know I think there would be a ban on the deployment or employment of Holocaust imagery in metaphor in Washington politics,” Miller stated. “Every time it’s used and deployed and has been by Republicans, Democrats, it’s wrong. Genocide is not a unique event but the willful murder, systematic organized murder, of six out of every seven million European Jews is a unique event and every time it’s done it leads to misunderstanding [and] antagonism.”
“She also has her history wrong on two points,” Miller went on. “Number one … even had there been no Holocaust, most of the institutions of the current State of Israel were in place before Hitler started killing Jews, so the Holocaust added urgency and international support, but I suspect with or without it, the State of Israel would have come into being.”
“And finally on this notion that Palestinians either negatively or positively helped to create a safe haven for Jews, the reality is that the Arabs of Palestine, Haj Amin al-Husseini the Grand Mufti, [were] in Nazi Germany collaborating, coordinating with the Nazis [… and] considering extermination of the entire Jewish community there as well. So this was ill-timed, ill-advised, and I think it clearly is simply going to antagonize and polarize the already polarized debate in Washington.”

Tlaib made her comments while pushing once again for a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that necessarily entails the destruction of the State of Israel and subjugating the Jews. According to the Washington Examiner, Tlaib “ignores the Jewish presence in the region and efforts to establish a Jewish state that predated the Holocaust, ignores that her ancestors allied with Hitler at the time of the Holocaust, and ignores decades of violence and terrorism directed at Israel both before, during, and after the Holocaust.” Exactly.
Tlaib says her words were twisted… no, they weren’t. She meant exactly what she said and it was horrific and vile. She’s an anti-Semite and given half a chance the Palestinians would engage in a second Holocaust. So, consider the source here.
Surely now @SpeakerPelosi & @LeaderHoyer will finally take action against vile anti-Semitism in their ranks. This must cross the line, even for them. Rashida Tlaib says thinking of the Holocaust provides her a “calming feeling” https://t.co/opUUNEol2d

Policing my words, twisting & turning them to ignite vile attacks on me will not work. All of you who are trying to silence me will fail miserably. I will never allow you to take my words out of context to push your racist and hateful agenda. The truth will always win.
