Rashida Tlaib is a victim, and not just any victim – she’s a righteous one. The freshman Democrat from Michigan’s 13th district was born in Detroit to parents from the West Bank, making her the first Palestinian-American woman to serve in Congress. She was one of the set of radicals I warned about ahead of last November’s midterm elections and she hasn’t disappointed. My concern then was that her campaign had suggested she was a supporter of the two-state solution during the Democrat primary, but she then openly identified with the Israel-eliminating one-state solution after clinching the nomination.
‘Just, I think, two week ago or so, we celebrated… or just took a moment, I think, in our country to remember the Holocaust. You know, 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 had been wiped out, and some people’s passport – 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. 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, right, and it was forced on them.’
PT. 1 In this @SkullduggeryPod clip – @dklaidman @Isikoff ask @RepRashida about being only Dem to publicly support a one state solution – "my ancestors, who lost their land and some lost their lives… in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews."
