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."
Therefore, the minister of interior has decided not to allow their visit, and I, as prime minister, support his decision.— PM of Israel (@IsraeliPM) August 15, 2019
For instance: they listed the destination of their trip as Palestine and not Israel, and unlike all Democratic and Republican members of Congress who have visited Israel, they did not request to meet any Israeli officials, either from the government or the opposition.— PM of Israel (@IsraeliPM) August 15, 2019
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.
Finally, Miftah posted a neo-Nazi article::— Elder Of Ziyon ҉ (@elderofziyon) August 15, 2019
