They wanted to slip through – but Israel’s Bibi slammed the brakes on them!
The mainstream media may love AOC’s “squad” of left-wing congresswomen, but not the rest of the world.
Ilhan Omar and her buddy Rashida Tlaib are outspoken… in their hate for Israel. The two congresswomen even introduced legislation that would allow American companies to boycott our ally.
They support a movement called BDS, which aimed to economically cripple the only true democracy in the Middle East.
These ladies thought they could attack Israel and the nation would roll out the red carpet for them.
Um… not quite.
From NBC News:
Israel said Thursday that it was barring two pro-Palestinian Democratic congresswomen from visiting the country.
Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan have both been outspoken critics of Israel…
“Only a few days ago, we received their visitation plan, and it became clear that they were planning a campaign whose sole purpose was to strengthen the boycott and negate Israel’s legitimacy,” Netanyahu said, referring to the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement, known as BDS.
Wow. The nation of Israel is denying Omar and Tlaib from entering the country. All because they promoted and endorsed the BDS movement.
Oh, and apparently Trump encouraged Israel to do so!
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. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!

I mean, seriously, these Muslim lawmakers were backing Palestine and refusing to recognize Israel as its own nation.
And they expected to be allowed in!?
I know I’m not the one taking crazy pills this time!
These women are getting a harsh lesson in international justice. You can’t abuse your power in Congress in order to criticize one of America’s closest allies.
In our opinion, Omar and Tlaib’s attacks on Israel are a disgrace to the United States. We are sworn ally to the Jewish people. We have defended them from many of their neighbors.
For Americans to have elected women who are against Israel? That’s a black mark on all of us.
Perhaps voters in Michigan and Minnesota will fix this error soon.
SHARE if you support Israel, not Omar or Tlaib!
