US Rep. Rachida Tlaib's comments are a source of controversy for congressional Republicans

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Dubai: US Rep. Rachida Tlaib, the first Muslim woman to be elected to Congress, became embroiled in controversy after declaring her support for a one-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Rachida Tlaib of Palestinian origin, talked about her Palestinian ancestors and the establishment of the State of Israel before she said about her.

She felt humiliated by the fact that her grandparents had suffered to create a safe haven for the Jewish people.

"As you know there is a kind of cold feeling, I always tell people when I think about the Holocaust and the tragedy of the Holocaust and the fact that the ancestors of Palestinians who lost their land and some of them lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity and their existence.

I mean, all this was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for the Jews in the post-Holocaust period and beyond the terrible tragedy and persecution of Jews across the world at this time. Past events had identified their views on how to resolve the conflict.

"The fact that it was her ancestors who provided this sanctuary in many ways, but they did it at the expense of their human dignity, was imposed on them, so I think of the one-state solution," Rachida said.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz published Taleb's remarks, and criticized two senior Republicans in the House of Representatives used the term "cold sense," accusing it of using it to describe its views on the Holocaust itself.
