After Trump Tweet, Israel Confirms Will Not Allow Reps Omar, Tlaib To Visit

2203

Update (1045ET): Just minutes after Trump tweeted to pressure Israel to disallow entry for two US congresswomen, Kan reports that Israel has decided to bar entry to Reps Omar and Tlaib.

The Israeli government has barred US congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from entering occupied Palestinian territories this weekend, according to Reuters, citing a statement by Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely.

“The decision has been made, the decision is not to allow them to enter,” Hotovely told Israel’s Reshet Radio.

Earlier on Thursday, prominent Israeli journalist Dana Weiss  had tweeted that the government has decided to ban the two lawmakers over their “suspected provocations and promotion of BDS”.

Amid confusing and contradictory headlines, President Trump has put more pressure on Israel in his latest tweet.

Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who have both been accused of making antisemitic statements, are reportedly being barred from entering Israel over their support for an international movement aimed at marginalizing the majority Jewish country.

However, another report indicated that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was meeting with officials and hadn’t made a decision yet.

Which may have prompted President Trump’s latest tweet:

It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!”

 

A tweet that is sure to unleash an avalanche of leftist ire.

As Axios reports, according to Israeli officials, Netanyahu is trying to find a solution that will address the pressure from the White House but will not totally bar Omar and Tlaib.

 

  • As of 5 am EDT, no decision had been made. One of the possibilities floated would be allowing the congresswomen to enter Israel but limiting their movements only to the Palestinian Authority.
  • Another option is to allow them in on humanitarian grounds. An Israeli official told me that if Tlaib filed a humanitarian request to visit her relatives, the Israeli government will consider it favorably.

Yes, but: At the same time, the Israeli Ministry of Justice and other relevant ministries are compiling evidence for Omar and Tlaib’s support for BDS in order to build a legal case for not allowing them to enter the country.

  1. They do not belong in our Halls of Congress let alone our great country the USA. The support and Elon gets to Islamic terrorist. Islam has no place in the USA it is a nomadic terrorist government using Islam as a religion to undermine our laws and country. They are a hate group of Jewish and Americans death to America is their calling and death to Israel and others who don’t go along with their ways and sharia law.
    So Americans need to wake up these women are not Americans they are Anti Americans anti US Constitution they want to take away all our rights just as our stupid Democrats do. Two of a kind and they are PATHETIC!!!

  2. These hateful racist anti-Americans do not represent us and should not be allowed to travel on our dime to embarrass the entire country with their hate and stupidity and lies.

  3. I’m not ever going to support the Democratic Party and the Islamic religion. The four women in government who down talk the United States should be barred from any government job . And impeached from their government job immediately for treason . And put in a federal prison for life.

  4. Omar and Tlaib’s support for BDS, which is exactly like what the Nazis did to the Jews.
    The Palestinians want to annihilate the Jews just like Hitler.
    These two demonrats are the equivalent of Nazis, but they call the rest of us Nazis.
    Israel did relent and offer T-laib permission to visit her grandmother, but then T-laib said she wasn’t interested.
    Shows her hatred for the Jews is even greater then her “love” for her grandmother. Just like her hatred for our President is greater than her love for the country she lives in.
    These two ‘congresswomen’ are also members of ‘the-four-women-of-the-apocalypse’ or “The Squad” — whose anti-America agenda permeates everything they do or say.
    The only reason they wanted to go to Israel is to proliferate their Palestinian agenda, and the BDS movement.
    I hope their districts aren’t as stupid in the next election . . .

  5. RVN 67-68-69 11th ACR Remember those idiots . I would not turn my on the gang of four. They are haters and like the democratic left want to destroy our liberty. Christ is the answer to all this. A man who brings a rattler into his house gets bit.

  6. Of course it is the right of Israel to ban these 2 agitators from visiting Israel.
    But they were to visit Rep Tlib’s 90 year old grandmother in Palestine, and Israel banned them!
    Probably a stunt but Shame on Israel for this.

  7. Neither Ihan Omar or Rashida Tlaib have any business in Israel or the West Bank or Gaza Strip the are subversives who don’t belong in the House of Representatives nor hold American Citizenship.

  8. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are anti-Israel and anti-American agitators who should be expelled from Congress and sent to Guantanamo Bay!

  9. Why is the US sending 12 BILION taxpayer dollars to Israel every year. WHY because they have bought their way into American politics. The Jews have been booted out of every country that was stupid enough to allow these people to reside with them. https://www.biblebelievers.org.au/expelled.htm see General Grants’ Field Order No 11 and Ben Franklin’s Constitutional Convention rally against allowing Jews American citizenship. Time to ban Jew money from American politics. Ben Franklin warned about these people, he had been with the leaders of Europe as ambassador and he new the history of these people. If the Jews don’t like it then they can move to Israel. America is a Christian Nation or so says the SCOTUS.
