Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, lashed out at Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Monday calling her part of an “anti-Semitic contingent” of the Democratic Party for making controversial comments about the Holocaust.

“I think she perfectly well understands the actual history here. But the revisionist history here serves anti-semitic goal Israel is illegitimate and ought to be abolished. She’s a supporter of the ‘Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions’ movement,” Shapiro said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“She suggested if you are a supporter of Israel you are guilty of dual loyalty in the past. She along with Ilhan Omar is part of an anti-Semitic contingent of the Democratic Party now being protected by the Democratic leadership.”

The Daily Wire reported:

MacCullum stated, “Those comments from Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib have set up a wave of backlash tonight, the President tweeting this: ‘Democrat Rep. Tlaib is being slammed for her horrible and highly insensitive statement on the Holocaust. She obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people. Can you imagine what would happen if I ever said what she said, and says?'” MacCullum asked Shapiro for his reaction to what Tlaib said.

Shapiro responded:

There’s the stuff that she said that’s anti-Semitic and then there is the stuff that she said that is not anti-Semitic. The stuff that she said that is not anti-Semitic is the stuff where she actually laments the Holocaust and so people are getting that wrong; the stuff that she said that is actually anti-Semitic is the part where she talks about, effectively, Israel being created post-Holocaust as a sop to the Jews. That is historically inaccurate and wipes away the entire Jewish history of the land, which is 3,000 years old. The Balfour declaration, signed in 1917, already started establishing a Jewish Israel.

And then she creates this utterly fictional account where Palestinian Arabs were welcoming Jews into the British Palestine. That, of course, is not only untrue; it is the precise reverse of history. The leader of the Palestinian Arabs at the time, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al Husseini: he was an ally of Hitler; he was calling for the Final Solution to be implemented in the Middle East; he was stumping for genocide against the Jews throughout his entire career. Palestinian Arab resistance to Jews living in British Palestine ended with the British actually refusing Jewish refugees from Europe in the midst of the Holocaust. So she is rewriting history to anti-Semitic effect here.
