JD: A freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib made a statement about the Holocaust.
WM: Well Jimmy I think that Rashida happens to be a very smart person or at least a person who is able to understand what she’s being told to do. She is engaged in disrupting not only the Democratic Party into a radical progressive liberal con-socialist type of party. It’s a whole new political game which I don’t think the American people as a whole really understand what’s happening in terms of the risk or the split in the Democratic Party. And in her statement trying to move the envelope of, “the state of Israel was the result of a Holocaust and we Arabs suffered because Europe or everyone else dumped the Jews of Europe on us with no real reason and we have to suffer”. That’s a complete perversion of the historical record.
JD: Well in addition to that I think she was re-writing history when she talked about the Palestinians offering the Jews a safe haven from the Holocaust there at that time known as Palestine.
WM: The Arabs never accepted any Jewish national framework in the 1920, 30s and 40s. They went violently to riots and murders. The Mufti was violently against the Jews starting in the 20s and then after 1933 linked himself up with Hitler. And in the end ended up spending the war years in Berlin making radio broadcasts on behalf of Hitler and Nazism. So this is no safe haven intended and this is no welcoming or anything else that the Congresswoman tried to befuddle the people who are listening to her.
JD: Winkie Medad with the truth about the Congresswoman’s attack on the Holocaust and her revisionist report on the Palestinian offer of a safe haven for the Jews at the time of the Holocaust.
