Words of the Week

“On Friday, Representative Rashida Tlaib was attacked by President Donald Trump for a ‘horrible and highly insensitive statement on the Holocaust’ and for having ‘tremendous hatred of … the Jewish people.’ Trump’s off-base attack distracted from the actual problems with Tlaib’s account of the Arab-Israeli conflict, in which she deployed deliberately imprecise language, misleading her listeners about the early history of the conflict in Palestine and misrepresenting its present and possible future.”
