(Daily Mail) Republican Party lawmakers on Sunday criticized Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib over comments she made about the Holocaust.

Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, made the remarks during a discussion about Israel-Palestine on the Yahoo! News podcast Skullduggery.

‘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,’ Tlaib said during the podcast, which was posted on Friday.
