Don’t Fall For Omar And Tlaib’s Lies About Israel© The Federalist Don’t Fall For Omar And Tlaib’s Lies About Israel

Nearly everything Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib said in their two-woman production of "Israel is Evil" on Monday was untrue. Let’s, for now, take one of the central claims the duo made.

They contend they were denied entry into the Jewish state because of their faith, while fellow sitting members of Congress were not. It’s simply untrue. Both Omar and Tlaib could easily have joined a group of 70 of their colleagues and met with Israeli and Palestinian Authority officials -- if it’s supposedly part of their “duties,” as they assert, to learn about the situation on the ground.

AIPAC splits with Trump and Netanyahu, backs visit by Omar and Tlaib to Israel

AIPAC splits with Trump and Netanyahu, backs visit by Omar and Tlaib to Israel The prominent pro-Israel group American Israel Public Affairs Committee suggested Thursday it opposed a move by Israel -- and supported by President Donald Trump -- to bar Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country. AIPAC, which advocates for a staunch alliance between the US and Israel, has frequently sided with Trump administration policies that have supported Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government, making its opposition especially notable. "We disagree with Reps. Omar and Tlaib's support for the anti-Israel and anti-peace BDS movement, along with Rep.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country. The Israeli government announced Thursday morning that the two congresswomen would not be allowed to Geraldo again lies on Twitter about Israel occupying Palestinian land. Geraldo, you cannot occupy land that belongs to you dumb ass!

Tlaib and Omar wanted to go on an anti-Semitic and anti- Israel propaganda trip. The trip was being financed by the Jew-hating NGO Miftah. Watch as Ilhan Omar tells outrageous lies about Israel .She is either breathtakingly ignorant or a pathological liar.You decide.Make sure you follow us for more

Instead, they planned a separate trip to “Palestine” with an itinerary designed by Miftah, a group that has long praised suicide bombers and, as any good antisemites do, claimed that “Jews [use] the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover.” (You know, we hear a lot these days about how the GOP is infested with white supremacists, but I have yet to run across a single elected Republican member of Congress allying himself with group that spreads blood libel. I imagine such a pairing would be a pretty notable story.)

Even then, Tlaib, who hadn’t visited her poor Sity for 13 years before her election to Congress, had asked to visit her grandmother on humanitarian grounds. Israel granted the request as long as Tlaib, now travelling as a private citizen, refrained from antisemitic BDS public protests during her stay.

Trump doubles down on criticism of Omar, Tlaib

Trump doubles down on criticism of Omar, Tlaib President Trump on Thursday doubled down on his decision to pressure the Israeli government to bar two U.S. Muslim congresswomen from visiting the country, labeling them "anti-Israel.""I'm only involved from the standpoint of they are very anti-Jewish and they're very anti-Israel," Trump said of Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.)."I think it's very disgraceful, the things they've said," Trump continued while speaking to reporters before departing for a campaign rally in Manchester, N.H., on Thursday evening. "They've become the face of the Democrat Party.

Omar is no better as her support for disreputable people and apparent support or sympathy for terrorist acts and organizations goes back further than Tlaib ’ s to 2012. She has made statements supportive of Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, and al-Shabbab. She has characterized Israel as anything but a

No country is under any moral obligation to issue visas to foreigners who actively engage in efforts to harm its citizens, much less abet their activities. And BDS’s goal is to bring economic ruin to the democratic Jewish state -- not only to Netanyahu or to Likud voters or to “settlers,” but to every citizen in the country, including the nearly two million Arab citizens.

Tlaib must have agreed, because she signed a letter acquiescing to those terms on congressional stationary. Only once granted permission by Israel did she break into performance mode, claiming that visiting her family without being able to engage in activism amounted to "oppressive conditions."

"Through tears, at three o'clock in the morning, we all decided as a family that I could not go until I was a free, American, United States Congresswoman coming there, not only to see my grandmother but to talk to Palestinian and Israeli organizations that believed that my grandmother deserves human dignity as much as anyone else does," she said.

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," he wrote. Trump is playing politics as he weakens our global leadership," the 2020 presidential candidate tweeted, with a link to a story about Israel ' s ban on Tlaib

To paraphrase (perhaps) Golda Meier, the fact that Tlaib hates Jews more than she loves her own grandmother is a microcosm of the problem of Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Seeing your grandmother for a few days will not inhibit you from further demonizing Israel. Although accepting their humanitarian favor is politically inconvenient.

Incidentally, her grandmother is denied dignity by a government that supports the targeting of civilians for death and has refused to engage in good-faith peace efforts for the past 55 years. That would be the Palestinian Authority, of course.

The Michigan congresswomen used her press conference to convey some sad stories about Sity and other family members, many of them American citizens, who have been singled out for various degradations at Israeli checkpoints. I’m skeptical anything she claimed was true. But here is a fact: hundreds of American citizens have been wounded and murdered by Palestinian terrorists during her lifetime. That’s why she was inconvenienced.

In the infamous 2001 Sbarro pizzeria bombing, 15 people, seven children, were murdered by a female bomber. Among them, six American citizens were hurt, and two were killed—including a two-year-old girl. Since 2001, the Palestinian Authority has paid those responsible for the deaths of these Americans nearly $1 million.

"Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her 'grandmother,'" Trump tweeted. "As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel.

While Tlaib and Omar have previously clashed with Democratic leadership, party leaders were quick to condemn Israel for banning them. Hoyer, Deutch and Wild joined a delegation of more than 40 Democrats on a trip to Israel last week sponsored by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’ s

Israel ’ s decision to bar Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country is being criticized from across the political spectrum— and I can see why. Regardless of where you sit politically, it’ s bad optics for a country that bills itself as “the only democracy in the Middle East” to act

In any event, that spree of violence was just another bloody chapter in a long history that goes back at least to the progroms of the 1920s. The Sbarro bombing came on the heels of Palestinian leadership rejecting yet another peace deal. It wasn’t a deal authored by the Likud party or by Netanyahu, but the center-left Israeli government.

President Bill Clinton, not George W. Bush or Donald Trump, brokered the negotiations. Clinton would later, on numerous occasions, blame the Palestinians for walking away from a generous deal that included virtually everything Yasser Arafat had asked for, other than the “right of return” -- which, of course, would be suicide for Israel.

Instead of embracing peace, Fatah, Hamas, Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Islamic Jihad, and others initiated a concerted war on civilians, with hundreds of suicide bombings and terrorist attacks that led to the murder of 1,000 Israelis and tens of thousands of cheering Palestinians. The present-day checkpoints and wall system were set up to combat this nihilistic violence. It worked, of course, with terror attacks dropping to nearly zero since that time (if you don’t count the thousands of rockets that are launched from Gaza every year.)

And if the congresswoman wants to know why her Sity can’t easily go to a hospital in Jerusalem, well, it’s because ambulances and medical service trucks have been used to hide suicide bombers and weapons.  Why aren’t there quality hospitals in the West Bank? Because corrupt Palestinian leaders, who have been given widespread autonomy and huge amounts of international aid, don’t build them for her.

The idea that Israel erected walls out of an innate racist desire to punish Muslims (millions of whom live peacefully, vote, and freely express themselves in Israel in ways they can’t anywhere in the Islamic world), is a vacuous leftist fairy tale.

There is no doubt that checkpoints and walls inconvenience many Arabs -- although far fewer than Tlaib insinuates -- but they also saves numerous lives. That's not only the lives of Israelis but also the lives of those who would die in the retaliatory strikes on terror organizations that often hide behind women and children. Neither Omar nor Tlaib can change that reality.
