Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) on Sunday said that Republicans are trying to “ignite vile attacks” against her over a podcast interview where she made comments about the Holocaust and voiced her support for a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“Policing my words, twisting & turning them to ignite vile attacks on me will not work,” Tlaib tweeted.

The article goes on to state the following:

“All of you who are trying to silence me will fail miserably. I will never allow you to take my words out of context to push your racist and hateful agenda. The truth will always win.”

The comments being highlighted by conservatives came from an interview that was published Saturday on Yahoo News’s “Skullduggery” podcast.

When asked about her position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Michigan lawmaker first noted that that the United States commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day two weeks ago.

Tlaib, who last November became one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, then talked about her Palestinian ancestors and the creation of the state of Israel, saying she was “humbled by the fact that it was my ancestors that had to suffer” to create a safe haven for the Jewish people.
