Israeli Minister Goes OFF On Rep Tlaib For Her Repeated Anti-Semitism


Israel announced on Thursday that they were barring radical anti-Semitic congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country. The two women were planning on visiting Israel to promote their anti-Israeli BDS movement.

The decision from Israel came after Omar and Tlaib announced their BDS resolution which is not only anti-Israel, but also anti-Semitic. The resolution goes as far to compare Israel to Nazi Germany. The two congresswomen were planning on visiting Israel to boycott Israel while promoting their radical, pro-Palestine agenda.

Shortly after Israel made their decision, Tlaib reached out to Israel's interior minister Aryeh Deri, pleading with him to let her into the country so she could visit her 90 year old grandmother.

Deri accepted Tlaib's request which was later shot down by Tlaib herself.

Should Rep. Omar Be Removed From Congress?

“Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib just tweeted that she will not visit Israel. Last night, she sent me a letter asking me to allow her to visit her grandmother, who is in her 90s, because ‘this might be my last opportunity to see her.’ I agreed to this humanitarian request, but it turns out that it was just a provocation aimed at embarrassing Israel,” Deri slammed in a tweet.

Deri's tweet comes after radical congresswoman Tlaib took to Twitter to announce that she would not visit her grandmother because of "racism."

“When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions. I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me & use my love for my city to bow down to their oppressive & racist policies,” Tlaib tweeted.

“Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice,” she added:

According to a letter acquired by CNN, Tlaib promised she would not promote boycotts against Israel during her trip if she could see her grandmother.

“This could be my last opportunity to see her. I will respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel during my visit,” she wrote.

After Israel granted her request, Tlaib immediately shot it down which suggests that the whole ordeal was a simple attention grab by Tlaib.

Back in 2017, Israel introduced a law which would prohibit foreigners from entering the country who “knowingly issues a public call for boycotting Israel.”

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu also explained why Omar and Tlaib would not be allowed to enter. 

“As a vibrant and free democracy, Israel is open to any critic and criticism, 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,” Netanyahu said.

“The two-member congressional visitation plan shows that their intent is to hurt Israel and increase its unrest against it,” he continued.

President Donald Trump seems to agree with the decision.

“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,” the president wrote on Twitter “Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!”
