The sad part is that the delusional Jewish Left will no doubt believe that Tlaib’s comments are genuine. #Jexodus

Like your fellow Squad member @IlhanMN, you too have no shame @RashidaTlaib! You have done nothing but promote Antisemitism, vilify the Jewish state and seek its destruction. You can’t even mention that the ‘millions of lives lost’ in the Holocaust were JEWS !!! #YomHaShoah

By Algemeiner, April 22, 2020
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — who has faced antisemitism accusations in the past — was criticized on social media on Wednesday after tweeting a statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day that did not mentions Jews.
“This #HolocaustRemembranceDay == and every day — we pay tribute to the millions of lives lost and forever changed in one of the most horrific chapters of our world’s history,” Tlaib wrote. “May we honor them by fighting to ensure hate and bigotry #neveragain prevail. #YomHaShoah.”

The failure to point out that Holocaust Remembrance Day marks a particularly Jewish tragedy drew both outrage and sarcasm from social media commenters.
Jewish conservative activist Ben Shapiro replied to Tlaib, “You can say Jews, Congresswoman.”

The blogger Elder of Ziyon posted a past tweet by anti-Israel activist and Tlaib ally Linda Sarsour that attacked former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus for Holocaust Remembrance Day statement in 2017 that did not refer to Jews.
“How do you have a Remembrance Day for the Holocaust and not mention Jews?! Absolutely outrageous. Definition of anti-semitism,” Sarsour said.
“According to Linda Sarsour @lsarsour, @RepRashida @RashidaTlaib is an antisemite,” Elder of Ziyon noted.

Rabbi Yonah Bookstein also replied to Tlaib’s deracinated statement, saying, “Millions of Jewish lives. This isn’t WWII Memorial Day.”
