During the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” on Friday, Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) made yet another shocking anti-Semitic statement, this time about the Holocaust giving her a “calming feeling” whenever she thinks about it. She went on to claim “it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports. And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews.”
Here’s her statement starting at about 28 minutes into the interview:
“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact 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, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports. And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”
On Monday’s radio show, Glenn Beck reacted to the Congresswoman’s stunningly anti-Semitic and historically inaccurate remarks.
“This is incredible on so many levels,” Glenn said. “Let’s not rewrite history here. First of all, Israel was the Jewish homeland for thousands of years, and facts don’t care about your feelings. The Jews began migrating back toward their homeland before the Holocaust, in the late 1800s, there was a movement to go back. The Balfour Declaration in 1917 legislation supported a two state solution. The Palestinians rejected that and got violent.”
Glenn goes on to note the Peel Commission of 1937, the Palestinian alliance with the Nazi’s during World War II, a post-WWII invasion of Israel in 1942, and the Six-Day War in 1967 — all instances of historically documented Palestinian hostility against the Jews.
“So what gives Tlaib this ‘calming feeling’?” asked Glenn. “I’d just like to know.”
