Israel has decided to deny entry to Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Both representatives planned to travel to Israel as a delegation but new information suggests ulterior motives.

The trip was funded by a pro-terror group, Miftah, and the two reps categorized the trip as a "delegation to Palestine."

Since the denial, Israel has partially reversed course and will let Tlaib enter the West Bank to visit her grandmother.

According to The Daily Wire:

Israel banned anti-Semitic Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Thursday from entering the country, stating that the two far-left members of Congress planned to harm Israel, increase incitement against it, and planned to meet with organizations that have expressed support for terrorism against it.

...

Omar and Tlaib are both supporters of the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which is a campaign designed to destroy the nation of Israel.

The Office of the Prime Minister of Israel revealed that Omar and Tlaib had also planned on meeting with organizations during their visit that have expressed support for terrorism against the nation.

"However, the itinerary of the two Congresswomen reveals that the sole purpose of their visit is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it," the Office of the Prime Minister of Israel tweeted. "In addition, the organization that is funding their trip is Miftah, which is an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel."

  For a group of legislators who say they promote peace and equality a lot of evidence exists to suggest that they do a lot of judging based on race, national origin, religion, and much more.
