"House Republican leaders called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to "take action" against Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Sunday after Tlaib said that thinking about the Holocaust gave her "kind of a calming feeling."
Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, made the comments while discussing the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians during an appearance on the Yahoo News podcast "Skullduggery." "
Comments like those of Rep. Tlaib are disturbing to say the least. If any Republican, Conservative of even and independent said them there would be immediate call s from the Democrats for their ouster from office. I hear no such call being made. The silence is deafening. Not even a cricket chirp It must be wonderful to know you are allowed to say the most despicable things and your party will stand behind you. Yes I know Ms Tlaib has the right to say such as this. Having the rightdoesn't make it right.

    In her brain scrambled way, Tlaib says she was trying to say that the Palestinians saved many Jews by giving up their homeland. Unfortunately, even if that was what she was trying to say, it's a lie. There were some Arabs who welcomed the Zionist settlers who had turned a desolate environment into a productive land, but when the number of Jewish arrivals turned into a flood, they resisted. That became a big problem for the British, trying to keep the groups from killing each other.

    When Israel declared itself as a new nation, the Arabs in that territory were warned by the surrounding Arab nations to evacuate, lest they become casualties of the impending slaughter. When the Israelis were successful in fighting off the Arab assault, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria could have welcomed the dislocated refugees, but instead they kept them in prison camps. Fed by propaganda that it was the Jews who put them in their sorrowful state, we have the angry mob that are called Palestinians.

    Having talked face-to-face with an ex-PLO member, I can tell you that there is no such thing as a "Palestinian-American". It is a walking anachronism of cosmic proportions. You have to either be true and loyal to Constitutional principles or Islamic ones. I could also point out that "Palestine" as a nation isn't even recognized by most Muslim nations; oddly enough only their self-professed enemies the Jews and the United States actually recognize their sovereignty.

    So let's just call Ms. Tlaib what she really is: an Islamic plant. Like Keith Ellison and Rep Omar. There is a reason they are Democrats: because they oppose the fundamental ideas that founded America and seek to overthrow them.

    Sounds like she’s really into collective vengeance.
    She probably thinks of two great tall buildings full of innocent Americans, on fire and collapsing, before she can have a peaceful night sleep.

    Well, I never criticized Mr. O'Bama. But I do regret having had a Muslim President. I just kept my mouth shut and let the whole thing play out. I saw him kiss the Saudi King's ring! Homage to his Leader!

        Oh brother, I forgot that image!

        It would be total vindication to see him behind bars for treason.

          They (the left) say that President Trump is guilty of treason for colluding with the Russians (He didn't but that is a different issue) President Obama gave $150B to the Iranians via release of monies being held by the US since the mullahs through the Shah out. then he gives them1.5 billion inn cash (US and European cureencies). This to an enemy that daily, almost hourly chants Death to America destroy Isreal. Giving aid and comfort to the enemy is considered Treason I don't care if it is required by a really dumb ass treaty requirement (Note: it was really a treaty since it was never voted in in that fashion requiring 2/3 approval in the Senate. Stupid Republicans allowed it to be handled as a "agreement requiring only 50% + 1 vote. Idiots!

              In my Dino Dictionary fantasy book, a picture of $hillary would appear beside words such as "kickback."
              Along with the picture of the former Muslim-In-Chief her picture would also appear beside "traitor."
              Heck, I can think of a whole page full a pictured faces to place under that second word.

    Holocaust jokes are sometimes better left untouched, but do you know what the Holocaust and lavender have in common? Nothing! Wasn't that the best joke? What!? You don't think so! Apologize!!

    It's sad that these freshman congresspeople seem to be the anthesis of one who is truly educated and has any sense of moral decency. the old farts of the Dimm leadership are so frightened of them that they a totally paralyzed in reprimanding the freshman congresspeople. The Republicans need to take action along with any Dimms they can muster to vote on sanctioning those individuals. I see those left-wing Dimms as traitors to the USA.

    In fairness, Tlaib did not say "thinking about the Holocaust gave her "kind of a calming feeling.""
    She said she had a “calming feeling” knowing that her ancestors had lost their land and their livelihoods in the creation of “a safe haven for Jews” after World War II. (not a quote, but NYTimes paraphrase)
    The problem is: she doesn't recognize that her ancestors tried to exterminate ("drive them into the sea") the Jews in the 1948 invasion of Israel.
    Not exactly creating a safe haven.

    I don't think she has the right to say what she did. She needs to be removed from office - NOW! What if I wanted to say, "You know what gives me a calming feeling? Putting a bullet through Tlaib's head!" (?) Would I have the "right" to say that? Her hateful, incendiary rhetoric is what incites people to action. And what if some Jewish person decided to take "pre-emptive action" against someone who seems to be promoting the idea of "The Final Solution" all over again. I think we're headed for war. I'm not sure when the shooting will start, but we're headed in that direction.

    Waste of time. Another fake "news" story to distract from what is going on behind the scenes. Another example of why I don't support the politically motivated GOP (nor the traitorous Dems.) This "story" deserves as much attention as the latest idiotic comments by empty headed Hollywood actors.
    Reacting to this is a complete waste of time. (Why do I bother?)

      You know what FFA...I hadn't considered this but you may have hit on something. If we are distracted by the Loonies, we aren't able to concentrate on what is really happening. Interesting!

        No, it's just not relevant to anything that the con-gress should spend its time on. She is an insulting moron who knows how to get in the news. She said it in order to get attention. The GOP con-gress critters give her attention. Waste of time and taxpayers scarce resources. Save the criticism to be used by her opponent in the next election. This is as stupid a story as all the idiotic stories that the left spins to distract the people from the fact that both parties are in league to loot the people.
