Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib said she “loves the fact” that her “Palestinian ancestors” were part of an attempt “to create a safe haven for Jews” after the Holocaust, although the role “was forced on them” and took place “in a way that took their human dignity away.”
“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. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away, and it was forced on them," Tlaib said.
Tlaib also harshly condemned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “coming from a place of division and inequality” and refusing to acknowledge her grandmother, who lives in the West Bank, as his equal. The Michigan Democrat is the first Palestinian-American Muslim woman to serve in Congress.Palestinians denounce Trump tweets against hometown hero Tlaib
Although Tlaib has never lived in the West Bank, she has relatives in the area and is widely seen as a local hero for making her way to the highest levels of American government.
Bassam Tlaib, an uncle of the congresswoman who lives in the West Bank, called the president’s comments “a racist statement meant to target Rashida because she has Palestinian roots.”
Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota ignited a bipartisan uproar in Washington early this year when she suggested that members of Congress support Israel for money. Both Omar and Tlaib have endorsed the Palestinian-led boycott movement against Israel.https://www.timesofisrael.com/palestini ... ero-tlaib/
It is clear to me that Omar and Tlaib are racist members of Congress and need to be defeated. Ben Carson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, made it clear that President Trump was not racist.
Praise the Lord.
