Today’s quote comes to us from Rep. rashida tlaib (D-MI). As reported in Cameron Cawthorne’s article at freebeacon.com, this is what tlaib said about her support for a “one-state solution” in Israel (which would make Jews the minority population of an Arab country):
“There’s kind of a calming feeling, I always 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, the human dignity, their existence in some ways had been wiped out”
“All of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post the Holocaust, post the tragedy and horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right?”
I have little doubt that effectively ending the Jewish state of Israel and handing it to people on record as intending to obliterate Israel and kill Jews would have a calming effect on the Israel-hating, Jew hating tlaib.
But her overt lies about the beginnings of Israel and “Palestinians'” intentions at that time, make me want to launch my lunch.
Let’s start with the fact that “The Palestinians” did not exist at that time. They were an invention of yasir arafat and his pals in the 1960’s.
Try to find any history book that references “The Palestinians” published before the mid 1960’s. I dare you.
The truth? “Palestinians” are people, regardless of their race, ancestry or religious beliefs, who live on the land area of Palestine – which encompasses Israel, Jordan, Gaza and Judea/Samaria (the “west bank”).
Yes, every Arab within that land area is Palestinian. And so is every Jew. And Christian. And atheist. And Zoroastrian. And native Japanese, Peruvian, Nigerian, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
Next we have those wonderful, loving, post-holocaust plans for Jews tlaib talks about. Their lovingkindness consisted of five Arab armies attacking Israel on the day it was formally created, with the express objective of “driving the Jews into the sea”.
And it continues right up to now, with the Hamas Charter (read it yourself and see), which is committed to both in Gaza and, via its “unity agreement” – in the “west bank” as well.
What does this charter say about Jews and Israel? Among many other things, it specifically calls for the obliteration of Israel (second paragraph), death to all Jews everywhere – not just Israel (end of Article 7) and rejects every negotiated solution, whether one state or two states (Article 13).
This, according to rashida tlaib, is “in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post the Holocaust, post the tragedy and horrific persecution of Jews across the world…”?
Yeah, right. And hitler was a founding member of B’nai B’rith.
I award rashida tlaib Quote Of The Day “honors” for supplementing her Israel hatred and Jew hatred with being an absolute unadulterated (and un-adult) liar as well….
….but one that Democrat leadership refuses to call out on her lies.
Why? Because they know that, at least until now, it has not lost them enough Jewish support to worry about.
In other words, the “Lost Tribe” is still rationalizing everything Democrat, even the hatred of tlaib (and her soulless-sister ilhan omar).
When do they finally wake up?
