Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib previously embarrassed herself by falsifying the history of the Middle East—suggesting Palestinians provided a welcoming haven for Jewish refugees during the Holocaust.

But every historian acknowledges that local Arab leaders responded to Jewish refugees with murderous attacks, ferocious hatred and unwavering opposition. Now, Tlaib is at it again—with distorted portrayals of her own family history as well the general history of her people.

Israel had nothing to do with her father and grandfather leaving the Middle East: her grandfather fled for Brazil in the 1930s, before Israel was even established, later moving to Detroit. Her late father immigrated to Nicaragua in the early ’60s, when the West Bank and East Jerusalem were still ruled by Arab Jordan, not Israel.

While Tlaib emphasizes the suffering of her family under the so-called “occupation,” it’s worth noting that two generations had already found homes in America before that alleged occupation even began.
