Rep. David Kustoff of West Tennessee is calling on Democratic congressional leadership to send a message about anti-Semitic remarks. The Jewish Republican called on Democrats yesterday to step up after Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib of Michigan was accused of making controversial comments to a Yahoo News podcast about Jews and the Holocaust. She said thinking about the Holocaust gave her a calming feeling because the tragedy resulted in her ancestors providing a safe haven for Jews after World War Two. Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American in Congress.
