Caroline Glick wrote an article in which she explains the reason why Democrats are defending Rashida Tlaib and her antisemitism. Both Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer gave Tlaib full approval for her racist rants against Jews.
Glick says this is all in keeping with the transformation of the Democratic party becoming the anti-Israeli and anti-Jew party. That pretty well sums it up. Democrats are really tired of trying to make people think they support Jews and Israel when that is the furthest thing from the truth. Glick goes on to explain the major lies that Tlaib told during her screed.
Tlaib made three key claims in her podcast with Yahoo! News. First, she claimed that Israel was established because of the Holocaust. Second, she claimed that the Palestinian Arabs in Mandatory Palestine/the land of Israel provided “safe haven” for the Jews in the aftermath of the Holocaust. And third, she claimed that the Jews repaid the Palestinian Arabs for their kindness by dispossessing and destroying them.
In 1922, the Zionist efforts won the approval of the League of Nations, which recognized“the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country,” and ordered Britain, then ruler of the Holy Land, to “secure the establishment of the Jewish national home.”
All of the institutions that were to grow into the state of Israel were formed before the Holocaust. If there had been no Holocaust, Israel would in all likelihood have gained independence even more quickly. Rather than declare independence with a Jewish population of 650,000, the leadership of the pre-state Israel would have declared independence with a Jewish population of several million.
As I documented in my book, The Israeli Solution: A One State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, the founder of the Palestinian national identity and the first leader of the Palestinian Arabs, Amin el-Husseini, was a Nazi and an active participant in the Holocaust. He modeled Palestinian Arab society after Germany Nazi society. His followers greeted each other with Nazi salutes. Husseini instigated a terror war against the Jews of the land of Israel – otherwise known as the Palestine Mandate — and the British mandatory government in 1936.
In 1937, Husseini and his followers began receiving direct financing from the Nazi regime. They used the funds to expand their operations. During three years of organized terror attacks, Husseini’s followers killed 415 Jews. Husseini was forced to flee in late 1937 after his men killed Lewis Andrews, the British Commissioner of the Northern District (Galilee).
Husseini made his way to Baghdad. In May 1941, he organized a pro-Nazi coup in Iraq. Before the Husseini and his associates were defeated by British forces, they carried out a mass assault against the Jews of Baghdad in June 1941. Hundreds of Jews were murdered. Thousands of Jewish homes and businesses were razed to the ground in the worst massacre of Jews in Iraq in history.
Just before British forces entered Baghdad, Husseini fled to Germany via Iran and Italy. He met with Hitler in November 1941. During their meeting Hitler promised to appoint Husseini leader of a Nazi-controlled Arab world and enable him to annihilate the Jews of Israel and the greater Middle East. Setting up shop in Berlin, Husseini spent the rest of the war lobbying the Nazis and their allies to prevent Jews escaping to their safe haven in the Jewish homeland.
In his memoirs, Husseini boasted of his success in preventing Jews from “Italy, Hungary, Rumania, Bulgaria, Turkey, and other countries” from escaping.
