A new petition is calling for controversial freshman lawmaker Rashida Tlaib to be removed from Congress.
The petition reads:
Rashida Tlaib has consistently engaged in behavior that is anti-American and against our country’s interests. We at ourstand.org believe it’s time for citizens to fight back and take ACTION.
Most recently, in a disgraceful interview statement, Tlaib claimed she has a “calming feeling” when she thinks of the Holocaust.
“There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports.
“And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”
President Trump took note and has commented on Twitter.
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?

Last month, Bizpacreview.com reported that Tlaib met with another extreme anti-Israel activist and terrorist-supporter in her Capitol Hill congressional office during American Muslims for Palestine Advocacy Day in mid-April.
American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) hosted the annual advocacy and training event, which was open to all adults who “seek justice in Palestine.” Additional criteria for participation includes supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.
During the event she was photographed with Joe Catron, an outspoken terrorist supporter with extreme anti-Israel beliefs.
Enough is enough. We demand Rashida Tlaib BE REMOVED from Congress immediately.
