Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib blamed white supremacy for the recent New Jersey shooting targeting Jews, which was perpetrated by Black Hebrew Israelites.

On Thursday in response to the shooting in a now-deleted tweet, Tlaib said:

"This is heartbreaking. White supremacy kills."

The rampage on Tuesday, which resulted in six deaths, saw a gun battle with police that left an officer, three civilians, and other suspects dead.

Suspects, 47-year-old David Anderson and 50-year-old Francine Grahm, were found to have intentionally targeted a kosher deli.

At least one of the suspects had written anti-Semitic posts online, according to a law enforcement official.

The attackers were part of a group called the Black Hebrew Israelites, known to be a hate group.

The group believes black people are the true descendants of Jews and that none of the 12 tribes are white.

But Tlaib, who was quick to jump on the tragedy and blame 'white supremacy,' has been accused of anti-Semitism for comments she has made attacking Israel.

In May this year, Tlaib said she got a "calming feeling" when she thought about the Holocaust.

The controversial lawmaker made the statement during an interview where she attributed the emotions to a false claim that her Palestinian ancestors provided a "safe haven" for Jewish victims of the tragedy.

Tlaib, who like her ally Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is often found at the center of anti-Semitic controversy, made the shocking and historically ignorant claim during an episode of a podcast called "Skullduggery," titled "From Rashida with Love."

"There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people's passports," Tlaib says around the 28-minute mark.

Earlier this year, Tlaib became the first-ever Muslim woman to preside over the House of Representatives on Wednesday, despite ongoing backlash from her recent 'antisemitic' remarks.

Both Tlaib and Ilhan Omar expressed support for Iran's regime for Palestinian terrorists attacking Israel.
