(JNS) U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) doubled down this week her criticism of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who recently said that Palestinians enabled a “safe haven” for Jews after the Holocaust.

Cheney also doubled down on her criticism of Democratic House leadership not condemning Tlaib’s remark.

“It’s sickening. People can have disagreements. Certainly, when I was working at the State Department, we had disagreements about what’s sort of the overall structure for working toward peace should look like,” she said at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C. “But what you are seeing today out of some of my colleagues on the Democratic side in the House is a kind of vitriol of anti-Semitism.”
