A 'calming feeling' over Palestinian love for the Jews

Muslim Congresswomen Omar and TlaibTwo freshman Muslim lawmakers keep making headlines and causing headaches for their Democratic leaders, and now a comment about the Holocaust is bringing attention again.

As reported on OneNewsNow, both Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib recently condemned Israel when it responded to yet another massive rocket attack on Israeli civilians by Hamas.

Gary Bauer, who is president of American Values, says the string of controversial comments have made him concerned the United States is allowing people to immigrate here who are bringing with them hatreds from their countries of origin. 

A pro-Israel activist says Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib is "a liar" who is trying to deceive the American people about the Palestinians role in the Holocaust.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore is president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations.

"… Rashida Tlaib … had the audacity to make the statement that when she thinks about the Holocaust, it brings great comfort to her to think that the Palestinian people were actually part of helping these Holocaust survivors," the PJTN president summarizes.

According to Cardoza-Moore, the reality is that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem actually met with Adolph Hitler "and agreed with what Hitler was trying to do and partnered with Hitler in the final solution to annihilate the Jews.

"… I don't what history book she's studied from," she concludes, "but for her to say the Palestinian people helped the Jews during the Holocaust is an outright lie. She is a liar."

“Congresswoman Omar and Congresswoman Tlaib are so obviously filled with disdain and hatred for Israel,” he observes, “that you would have to be sleepwalking not to realize that at this point.”

Both women, who are freshman lawmakers, have created problems for Democratic leaders who have criticized their comments, or made excuses for their behavior, even while fellow lawmakers have criticized the criticism.

Mufti meets with HitlerTlaib, who is Palestinian, is now making headlines after making the claim that her Palestinian ancestors provided a “safe haven” for Jews after World War II and the Holocaust, when they gave up their land “and some lost their lives” to Jews.

But a fact-checking article at The Washington Examiner ripped Tlaib’s claims apart, pointing out that Jews already occupied the land over the objections of Arab neighbors.

The story by Phillip Klein also pointed out how Muhammad Amin al-Husayni (pictured above), the Palestinian leader during World War II, openly allied with Adolph Hitler to recruit Muslim soldiers and to broadcast pro-German, anti-Jewish propaganda to Arab listeners.  

Yet the congresswoman told an interviewer she has a “calming feeling” when she thinks of how Palestinians helped Jews after World War II.

Bauer says he fears that Omar and Tlaib's views reflect a significant portion of the electorate in their congressional districts.
