An increasing number of politicians and pundits make up history or invent a past to suit their needs. Rashida Tlaib has claimed that European refugees during the Holocaust found sanctuary in Syria, Egypt and Lebanon. This is not historical fact.

Members of the Association for Israel Studies published a journal called Word Crimes: Reclaiming the Language of the Israel-Palestinian Conflict, which discusses how language is used to delegitimize Zionism and the State of Israel. This has caused arguments by their colleagues who call it unscholarly, although these are people who whitewash radical Islam, undermine support for Zionism and support the Palestinian cause to destroy Israel. Read the article HERE.
