Back in March, I wrote an article talking about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Al-Shabaab)’s anti-Semitic comments and how the Democrat Party initially planned to pass a resolution condemning all anti-Semitism (without singling out Omar) but then simply chose to pass a resolution condemning all forms of hatred, pretending as if no anti-Semitism actually was spewed.
Recently, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Hamas) tried her hand at a common tactic among anti-Semites: revisionist history of the Holocaust and Israel.
On a Yahoo podcast named, “Skullduggery”, Tlaib said the following words: “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, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports… I mean, just 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.”
Now, there are a number of things that are very, very wrong about this.
First, that initial portion is quite horrific. She gets a “calming feeling” when she thinks about the Holocaust and the tragedy of it? That is honestly some of the most vile, anti-Semitic rhetoric I have heard in my life. And before anyone tells me I’m taking it out of context, as pretty much all Democrats will claim here, in what context exactly is the phrase “calming feeling” when thinking of the Holocaust in any way not anti-Semitic?
Had she tried to say she got a “calming” or “pleasant” feeling of “knowing” her ancestors did nice things for the Jews (a complete lie, but we’ll get to that in a moment), then that would’ve been different. But she prefaced that with the actual Holocaust and its tragedy.
She could’ve said: “There’s kind of a calming feeling I always tell folks when I think of what my ancestors did for the persecuted Jews post- the Holocaust, about how they did their best to try to help them, even if it came at the cost of their very own lives and livelihoods.” THAT would’ve still been utterly wrong and Jewish revisionist history, but it at least would’ve been taken a little bit better, in my opinion. It at least would’ve hidden her hatred for Jews and appreciation for the Holocaust. But the Left is convinced they can get away with pretty much everything, so she can make clear her hatred of Jews and appreciation for the Holocaust and the Democrats + the media will come to her defense… exactly as they did.
The second, and perhaps most important thing that is wrong about what she said is the actual revisionist history. The Palestinians living in the area at the time were anything BUT welcoming of the Jewish people post- the Holocaust. Violence was often used against Jews returning to the Holy Land, which was occupied by Muslims at the time.
And matter of fact, it was the Palestinian Grand Mufti, Muhammad Amin al-Husayni, who was a big ally of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany, even being a big fan of Hitler’s “final solution” of the elimination of lesser races and people.
Now, a commonplace lie that is peddled by anti-Semites is that Israel only exists today because of the Holocaust. That is patently untrue.
Even ignoring the fact that Israel existed as a nation THOUSANDS of years before the Holocaust took place, what with Abraham essentially being considered every Jew’s ancestor (and every Christian, really), as well as Moses delivering the Jewish people out of bondage through God’s power, and God choosing Saul to anoint him as king of Israel, followed by David and Solomon, the Jewish people began to resettle in the land WELL before the Holocaust.
According to the New York Post: “Last Wednesday was Israel’s Memorial Day for fallen soldiers and victims of terror. Israeli television broadcast all the names – 23,741. The litany begins with Avraham Shlomo Zalman Tzoref, who was murdered by Arabs opposing his work for the Jewish community in Jerusalem. That was in 1851. The Holocaust took place nearly a century later.”
What’s more, Jewish people began to return to Jerusalem, or Zion, around the 1880s. “In 1917, British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour declared that his government ‘view[s] with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.’ The League of Nations, a precursor to the United Nations, gave the British a temporary mandate to govern Palestine, and under the mandate, the Jewish community formed its own self-governing body in 1922.”
So there was already quite the Jewish presence in the area well before Hitler came along. And returning to the Grand Mufti, according to a German transcript of a meeting between him and Hitler, when visiting German troops, the Mufti said: “An appeal by the Mufti to the Arab countries… would produce a great number of volunteers eager to fight.”
Hitler then made a promise to the Mufti that, after conquering the Southern Caucasus, “Germany’s objective would then be solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere.”
The Arabs even pressured the British into limiting the number of Jews who would be granted access to the mandate established in 1917 in seek of refuge, leading many ships to be forced to turn around and many Jews to be sent to almost certain death in Europe.
What’s more, in 1947 when the U.N. voted to “partition mandatory Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state, five Arab armies invaded in an attempt to make it all Arab.”
So not only was there considerable Jewish presence in the region well before the Holocaust, enough to petition the British to allow for a sovereign Jewish state, and not only were the Arabs in cahoots with the Nazis, but once World War II had ended and the newly-formed U.N. voted to allow for a Jewish state to exist in the region, the Arabs (or Palestinians) outright invaded the region to keep it from becoming Israel’s.
The REAL history lesson here is the fact that Tlaib’s ancestors SOUGHT THE DESTRUCTION OF THE JEWS, EVEN SIDING WITH HITLER TO DO SO! And yet, she implies that the real victims here are the “Palestinians” post- the Holocaust. She implies that the Jews were greedy land-grabbers and thieves who took advantage of poor, little Palestinians who only wanted them to be safe and comfy.
What a load of crap! The Islamic Arabs have been mortal enemies to the Jews for centuries, ever since the “prophet” Mohammed’s first bloody crusade against infidels. They worked hand-in-hand with the NAZIS to eliminate the Jews. That is a FACT. What Tlaib is claiming here is entirely ahistorical crap.
But lo and behold, the self-righteous Democrat Party comes to Tlaib’s defense after getting called out for her horrific choice of words and her thinly-veiled attempt at rewriting history to make the Jews look like the bad guys.
Everyone from President Trump to Congressional Republicans to SANE PEOPLE WHO KNOW THEIR HISTORY AND CAN TELL TLAIB IS A HORRIBLE ANTI-SEMITE called Tlaib out on her bigotry and her hatred.
“Democrat Rep. Tlaib is being slammed for her horrible and highly insensitive statement on the Holocaust. She obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people,” wrote the President.
This, in particular, has gotten the Democrats to, once again, defend anti-Semitism and show themselves to be far closer to the Nazi Party than they could ever claim Trump and Republicans to be.
Dem. Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) tweeted: “If you read Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s comments, it is clear that President Trump and Congressional Republicans are taking them out of context. They must stop, and they owe her an apology.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Californistan) tweeted: “Republicans’ desperate attempts to smear Rep. Rashida Tlaib & misrepresent her comments are outrageous. President Donald Trump & House GOP should apologize to Rep. Tlaib & the American people for their gross misrepresentations.”
Yeah, Trump and Republicans should totally apologize to the horrible bigot for making her horrific comments that do not even attempt to hide her hatred for Jews and hardly attempt to hide that she is trying to rewrite history to make Jews look like the bad guys DURING THE WORST TRAGEDY TO EVER BEFALL THE JEWS!
Yeah, Tlaib was only making poorly-thought-out at best comments saying she got a calming feeling when thinking about the Holocaust and the tragedy and was only trying to insinuate the common anti-Semitic lie that Arabs in the region were welcoming of the Jews who totally were never there before.
Even Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-USSR) weighed in on this in defense of Tlaib. May I remind you he himself is Jewish?
Well, he’s a socialist, so I don’t know how one can be Jewish (or Christian) and socialist at the same time. If one were to say he is a socialist, he is not a Jew or a Christian. One cannot serve two masters (God and the government) for he will love one and hate the other and vice versa.
But in any case, we continue seeing the Left-ward trend from the modern Democrat Party to get closer and closer to the Nazi Party of Germany without actually calling themselves Nazis (and even having the nerve to call other people “Nazis”).
One does not have to think very hard about where we will go from here.
“For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, speaking against me with lying tongues. They encircle me with words of hate, and attack me without cause. In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer. So they reward me evil for good, and hatred for my love.”
