Michael Medved: A “One State Solution” Means No Safe Haven

Representative Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan, says “I want a safe haven for Jews.”

The question she hasn’t been asked and cannot answer is: where do you think that “safe haven” should be? She obviously doesn’t think it should be in Israel, the ancestral home of the Jewish people, since she favors the so-called “One State Solution”, meaning the end of any Jewish State in the Middle East.

The idea that any Arab Palestinian state could provide a “safe haven” for Jews or other non-Muslims is ridiculous, considering the terrible record in treatment of Jews, Christians and other minorities in all of the 22 existing Arab Muslim states.

If her Democratic colleagues continue to defend and excuse Tlaib’s incoherent extremism, then all voters who care about Israel’s security should work to end the Democratic House majority that shamelessly sanctions extremism.

Michael Medved: Obsessive Bigotry Threatens the Hater, Along With the Hated

Those in the grip of an obsessive, irrational hatred can’t keep themselves from expressing it, even when they damage their own interests in the process.

For Louis Farrakhan, recently kicked off of Facebook for his bigotry, it clearly hurt him to denounce “satanic Jews” to a Catholic congregation in his latest unhinged diatribe.

For Rashida Tlaib, saying she always gets “kind of a calming feeling” when she thinks of the Holocaust, and suggesting that Palestinians created a “safe haven” for Jews in the Middle East, obviously undermined her already shaky position with her House colleagues. For Tlaib, she wasn’t even asked about the Holocaust, but brought it up in the context of her one-state opposition to any Jewish homeland, anywhere on earth.

Irrational anti-Semitic outbursts not only threaten Jewish people, but simultaneously menace the blighted obsessives who can’t stop themselves from uttering them.

Lanhee Chen: The Leftward Lurch Continues

The leftward lurch of the Democratic contenders for the presidency continues. The latest idea? California Senator Kamala Harris has called for repeal of the Trump tax cuts. Not some of them. Or just the “tax cuts for the rich.” But all of them.

Millions of middle-income families have benefited from these tax cuts. And our economy is zooming, while unemployment is low and wages are rising. Repealing the Trump tax cuts would imperil the economic progress that we’ve made over the last several years, slowing job creation and threatening to put us back into economic malaise.

Democrats want to raise taxes to pay for their costly social spending plans, like free college tuition and government-run health care. But the tax hikes they are proposing won’t pay for even a fraction of their plans. And their policy proposals look a lot less attractive when you dig beneath the surface.

It’s up to all of us, the voters, to hold them accountable.
