BDS supporters planned to stir up trouble in Israel.
Both BDS Supporter who want to wipe out Israel as Anti-Semites in Congress @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib were stopped from going overseas to cause more divisive, activist behavior. This a platform, and the Democrats have been infected by these scumbags. The Democrats as an entire party have no sense of direction, they cannot call out these members of Congress for their behavior. Why have they not been censured?
This is great news, Israel of course has the balls to prevent these verbal terrorists from entering their Country, they do long background checks and spend much of their budget keeping the peace by preventing dangerous people from entering. Why should they allow either of these radical idiots into cause more disruption within Israel with their dangerous rhetoric?
Too bad that they didn’t decide to go to Somalia instead and offer humanitarian assistance. Why not? Oh, they were not interested in any positive contribution to society, but to hang on the negative publicity train that follows them around and their Anti Israel narrative.
Mr. Trump is a lying bigot- Bernie Sanders
Chiming in, the historically Communist Bernie Sanders makes sure to throw in a punch before Trump arrives in New Hampshire his home state tonight Sanders tweets: “Trump is a lying bigot”
Let’s not forget this Bernie Sanders and Communist-Socialist history. “The heritage of Castro will be felt for generations to come, he an example for his people, for America and for the world. One day, in the future Americans will embrace Socialism, but we are still far from that today”- 1985 Radio Interview of Bernie Sanders.
President Trump Responds:
“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel and all Jewish people, and 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!” – President Trump, August 14, 2019
Michigan Attorney General Chimes in.
Regarding Israels denying entry to Anti-Semites Omar and Tlaib- “Bigoted political tactics of Donald Trump”
“Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019
LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the following statement following the Israeli government’s announcement that it would deny entry to Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar:
“I am extremely disappointed that the Israeli government has adopted the bigoted political tactics of Donald Trump by barring two duly elected members of the U.S. Congress from entering the country. As both a Jew and personal friend of Rep Tlaib, I am outraged that she continues to face vile attacks simply for who she is and for doing her job. Rashida does not judge a person based on religion, race, national origin, sexual orientation or any other classification. She fights on behalf of those she feels are being oppressed, whether it be in her district or around the world. Donald Trump’s strategy of pitting Americans against each other knows no bounds, and politicizing the U.S.-Israel relationship toward that end is a new low. While I am a state official without decision-making authority on this, I stand in solidarity with Rep Tlaib and the thousands of Michiganders who chose her to represent them in Congress.”
Benjamin Netanyahu Official Statement on Omar and Tlaib Visit:
He outlines the hidden agenda now public of both Anti-Semitic Congress persons to drum up support for the BDS movement and to strengthen it’s position against the Government of Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this evening:
“No country in the world respects America and the American Congress more than the State of Israel.
As a free and vibrant democracy, Israel is open to critics and criticism, with one exception: Israeli law prohibits the entry into Israel of those who call for and work to impose boycotts on Israel, as do other democracies that prohibit the entry of people who seek to harm the country. In fact, in the past the US did this to an Israeli member of Knesset, as well as to other public figures from around the world.
Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are leading activists in promoting the legislation of boycotts against Israel in the American Congress. Only a few days ago, we received their itinerary for their visit in Israel, which revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy. 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.
A week ago, Israel warmly welcomed some 70 Democratic and Republican members of Congress, who expressed broad bipartisan support for Israel, which was also demonstrated a month ago in a resounding bipartisan vote against BDS in Congress.
However, the itinerary of the two Congresswomen reveals that the sole purpose of their visit is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it.
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.
Nonetheless, if Congresswoman Tlaib submits a humanitarian request to visit her relatives, the minister of interior has announced that he will consider her request on the condition that she pledges not to act to promote boycotts against Israel during her visit.”

AOC boycotts Israel, says she will not visit.
The question is, was she ever invited? In fact were Tlaib or Omar invited to visit? I don’t think so. Daily entertainment.
