The two Anti-Semites from Congress were planning a trip to Israel so they could spew their hateful bile in person instead of just on Twitter and from the halls of Congress. And Israel told them to take a hike.
Good for them!
And here I thought I couldn’t get more pro-Israel than I already am.
Think of it as a Boycott, Divest and Sanctions program targeting Jew-hating, Anti-Israel bomb-throwers.
If you call for a one-state solution that in effect would obliterate the state of Israel, why should State of Israel permit you to visit?
If you compare boycotting Israel to boycotting the Nazis, why should Israel roll out the welcome mat for you?
“Good faith” is one phrase that will never be used when describing Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
Given how shamelessly they beat the Anti-Israel drum you’d have to be deaf, dumb and blind to think those to would visit Israel in good faith.
Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have no good will towards Israel, or pro-Israel Jews. They are on a long term mission to turn the US away from Israel. They are not coming with an open mind. There is no reason for Israel to allow them in and submit to their agenda.— Dr. Einat Wilf (@EWilf) August 15, 2019
There may be legitimate grounds for the reversal.— David Shor (@DYShor) August 15, 2019
1) Since the decision to allow them in their trip organizer has changed. From HumptyDumpty to @DrHananAshrawi.
2) Their itinerary became known. With it it became clear that they are NOT coming to lean, but rather to provocateur. https://t.co/pKNYuR7Ozq
Israel is under no obligation to let these people—who long, openly, for the country’s destruction—make trouble within its borders. Plenty of Arab Members of the Knesset who can do the same without bringing the media along. https://t.co/RCsei9X83j— David Reaboi (@davereaboi) August 15, 2019
But of course the same Leftists who set their fire for more than two years over “foreign interference” in our own governance will be super upset that Israel doesn’t want two rabble-rousing anti-Israel activists in Congressional clothing interfering in theirs.
Every sovereign nation has the right to refuse entry to a foreign national – especially if said foreign national is openly hostile to said nation.
Countries routinely deny visas to those with extremist views. The US excludes people for ideologies fundamentally hostile to US (ie communism); the UK and others deny entry to public figures with bigoted views as being “not conducive to the public good.” Omar/Tlaib qualify.— Eugene Kontorovich (@EVKontorovich) August 15, 2019
On a side note, I found this little nugget of information quite interesting.
In 2015, two Democrat members of Congress wrote a letter to the State Department demanding that they not give a visa to Dutch politician and noted anti-Islamist Geert Wilders to enter the United States
Was it because Wilders is an anti-American radical who hates this country and wants America destroyed?
They wanted him blocked from entry because he is an anti-Islamist.
Who would want to do such a th… Oh. pic.twitter.com/mJ3w36S3WV— Kyle Shideler (@ShidelerK) August 15, 2019
Keeping these two anti-Israel bigots out makes all the sense in the world.
One final note: President Trump just weighed in.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 15, 2019
