Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Monday accused House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) of “deep seeded hate and Islamophobia” after Cheney repeatedly criticized Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) over her comments related to Israel and the Holocaust.
“Give it up, we all know you never met a Muslim you didn’t want to vilify!” Omar, a Muslim, said in response to a tweet from Cheney. “Your deep seeded hate and Islamophobia might be a tool to rally your base, but won’t get rid your colleagues. You just have to deal.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The remarks came as Tlaib faced mounting criticism from the GOP over remarks she made over the weekend while discussing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Cheney had tweeted, “Here’s @RepRashida direct quote, “There’s a calming feeling I always tell folks when I think of the Holocaust.” And her “history” of what happened after is a fantasy based on lies spread to delegitimize the state of Israel.”
Cheney was referring to comments Tlaib made regarding Holocaust Remembrance Day on Yahoo News’s “Skullduggery” podcast. Tlaib said she gets a “kind of a calming feeling” when thinking about the Holocaust and that “it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who” suffered and sacrificed while “trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust.”
Tlaib said Monda ty that she stands by her comments and that Republicans were “twisting and turning” her words to “ignite vile attacks.”
