Israel Blocks Tlaib and Omar Visit over Support for Anti-Israel BDS Movement…

Citing the continued effort of Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to advocate for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, the government of Israel notified Representatives Omar and Tlaib Wednesday night they would not be granted entry visas this weekend.

Not long before the news was public, President Donald Trump tweeted his support for the decision by the Israeli government:

Immediately the political media went bananas with proclamations that President Trump was the cause of the denied entry.  According to many DC politicians demanding the elimination of the state of Israel does not warrant a denial of entry.  The Democrats -and some Republicans- say Israel should respect the voices of American politicians who want to see their nation eliminated.  Apparently Israel disagrees with this position.

WASHINGTON – Israel on Thursday barred Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the Jewish state, citing their support for a Palestinian-led boycott movement — a decision that unleashed a torrent of condemnation by Democratic congressional lawmakers.

“The decision has been made, the decision is not to allow them to enter,” Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely told Israel’s Reshet Bet Radio.

[…]  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the announcement by Interior Minister Aryeh Deri by saying Israel is a “vibrant and free democracy” that is open to criticism of its policies, but “with one exception.”

“Israel’s law prohibits the entry of people who call and operate to boycott Israel, as is the case with other democracies that prevent the entry of people whose perception harms the country,” he said, according to The Jerusalem Post.

The decision was made by Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Israel Katz and Minister of Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan.

“The State of Israel respects the US Congress, as part of the close alliance, but it is inconceivable that anyone who wishes to harm the State of Israel will be allowed, even during the visit,” a press statement said.  (read more)

      According to what Biden is saying, then he would allow any terrorist or enemy of America planning to do harm in our nation to enter. Only a fool would open their door to someone who wanted to see you destroyed.

        That was so clever of President Trump! He has now forced American Jews to see these women as they are — he keeps turning up the volume. He keeps it in the news. So people remember who these people are. He wants them on the front stage, visible to everyone. People like us (CTH) are political junkies. Most Americans are more normal,and don’t obsess with the news. But since it keeps coming up and up and up, more voters will catch on to it. GREAT.

Meaning, they cannot put reason in their ideas or arguments and these people don’t care about tedious things like ‘facts’ and ‘consequences’ ‘responsibility’ because…..they are insane.
        When they were tethered to conservatives it made an appearance of sanity, President Trump ‘unchained’ them all. Walk away should be a booming idea but ‘ego’ has blinded these people at this point.
        imagine the actual ideas and strategies of these goobers is their downfall. ‘I’m a victim, pity me while I scream at the sky’ but don’t ask for a rational idea or thought to ease their perceived emotional pain. They are nothing but sheep at this point, sheep for the slaughter by their own hand.

    Folks you can hate me all you want but allowing operative Muslims in congress is just wrong on so many levels.
    Everybody knows with Muslims there is no compromise, no shared values, no, “can’t we all just get along”! Kind of rationale.
    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; their goal is complete subversion of not just the US and our foundry of Christian-Judeo principles, they have a much loftier dream, one of making the entire planet in the image of Mohammed’s bull snit teachings; one of death, destruction, misery and misogyny.
    I would not be happy with just the expulsion of these Muslim operatives from congress. Expulsion should be reserved for those in the government who have allowed them entry in the first place.

      Love and hate. Right before my very eyes. I vote for love, I prepare against hate.

        The only way to have these muslims enter our country is without any worship or rights. They may observe and participate but never be anything more. As Christians, we all know and see this. Their conversion is our only way to reach them At that point their perspective should change.

The indoctrination in the proposed HS curriculum however isn’t new, it has been going on for at least 20 years by now it just wasn’t officially recognized. The so called academics today are far left indoctrinators. We can all see the end result, a one party state with a governor acting like a dictator.

    The only story from Israel I need you to hear:

    “Are you a Christian or a Jew?” my Uber driver Abed asked out of the blue. I told him I was an American Christian – but I was driving to go visit a Jewish friend in Jerusalem. “I have lived in Jerusalem all my life,” he told me, “I am a Muslim. I have a wife and three children. Jerusalem is my life.”

    I asked him about what it is like raising a family in such a consequential city.

    “I would not raise my children anywhere else,” he said. “Have you seen the West Bank? No one works. Gaza? No. Other Muslim countries – would not be good for my children. No. Israel is the best you can have. This is the best place in the world.”

    I told him many Westerners would be surprised to hear a practicing Muslim speak this way about Israel.

    “The media lies about Israel,” he said without hesitation, “This is a beautiful place. I have a home. My family is safe. My religion is free. Democracy. My children have a good life – and my children are all I live for.”

    In that moment, a thousand years of religious tension melted away – and there was just a happy husband and father driving my Uber past the worn, Old City Jerusalem walls.

    “Christians, Muslim, Jew – we can all love Israel,” he said. I got out of the car and thanked him for the best Uber ride of my life. “God Bless You,” Abed said.

    Don’t believe the broken media.

    The vast majority of the people on this earth are just decent men and women who love their families and want to be safe.

    This is the only story from Israel I need you to hear – a very Israeli story about The Promise Land.

    I encourage all of you to visit Israel to see the truth for yourselves.

    https://www.breitbart.com/middle-east/2019/08/16/israel-allows-rashida-tlaib-to-visit-her-palestinian-family/

    The Israeli government decided Friday to allow Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to enter the country to visit her Palestinian relatives in Judea and Samaria (the “West Bank”).
    Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) were denied permission to enter the country, under a 2017 law that bars those who support boycotts of Israel. However, the Israeli government indicated that it could allow Tlaib to apply for a “humanitarian” visa, provided she did not promote boycotts.

    Tlaib apparently agreed to those conditions, according to the Times of Israel:

    “I would like to request admittance to Israel in order to visit my relatives, and specifically my grandmother, who is in her 90s and lives in Beit Ur al-Fouqa,” Tlaib wrote in her letter to [interior minister Aryeh] Deri. “This could be my last opportunity to see her. I will respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel during my visit.”

    A statement from Deri’s office Friday morning said he had decided to allow the congresswoman into the country based on her letter. It said he “expressed hope that she will live up to her promise and that the visit will only be for humanitarian needs.”

    Israel had indicated several weeks ago that it would allow Omar and Tlaib to enter, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his government had changed its decision based on the fact that their proposed itinerary referred to Israel as “Palestine,” that they had declined to meet with any Israeli officials (in opposition or government), and that their itinerary was being organized by an anti-Israel group.

    President Trump also encouraged Israel to deny them entry.

    MakeAmericaGreat (a CTH poster) made the comment earlier this morning: “But the timing of this (his actions toward Omar and Tlaib) is exquisite”.

    I think PDJT is locked and loaded with many correct actions. He has a whole arsenal prepared with a hair triger to release, and tweet loaded with high energy gunpowder, and rifled for accuracy. I think he even has perfect scenarios imagined, in which the timing would be designed for the greatest MAGA effect exposing evil, or supporting universal founding American principles. And he waits…… and sometimes even manipulates the events beforehand so the timing of the action is perfect.

    And I believe he prays. I think his childhood experiences, his passion for america, and being humbled by the magnitude of battle against evil he has found himself in… he has turned to God. I think PDJT is inspired… his action are too effective to be otherwise. No world leader has accomplished so much against so much resistance.

    And I often see God rolling on the floor laughing at the work He and the Donald are doing
