Omar & Tlaib Blame ‘Trump & Bigotry’ For Israel Ban, Hide Trip’s Terrorism Link

Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are blaming President Donald Trump and “bigotry” for Israel’s decision to ban them. Well, the two controversial Congresswomen are hiding the trip’s link to terrorism along with their own despicable behavior toward Israel just hours before they were banned. You don’t want to miss this.

President Donald Trump weighed in giving advice to his friend and ally Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the two Muslim Congresswomen asking for entry into Israel. Trump didn’t mince words.

“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!” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

However, behind the scenes, Netanyahu and his cabinet had been weighing the written request for a state visit they got from Omar and Tlaib. Trump was just publicly affirming Israel’s own decision to ban them.

The truth is the Congresswomen’s written request was showing utter disrespect for the state of Israel. 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, explaining the decision at length on his office’s Twitter account, said that Tlaib and Omar’s itinerary “revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy,” Fox News reported. 

Netanyahu said their travel plans referred to a trip to “Palestine,” not Israel, and the congresswomen were not interested in meeting with Israeli officials. He went on to note that the Palestinian organization that planned the visit, MIFTAH, supports the boycott movement and that people associated with the group have supported terror against Israel in the past.

Rep. Tlaib tried playing the victim card by tweeting, “This woman right here is my sity. She deserves to live in peace & with human dignity. I am who I am because of her. The decision by Israel to bar her granddaughter, a U.S. Congresswoman, is a sign of weakness b/c the truth of what is happening to Palestinians is frightening.”

Netanyahu confirmed that they would consider permitting Tlaib to visit her Palestinian family members if she filed a humanitarian request and promised not to promote boycotts of Israel while she visits. But Tlaib already knew that. She’s just trying to manipulate the useful idiots in the Democratic Party.

If that wasn’t enough, Omar and Talib’s trip was sponsored by a terrorist-supporting organization. 

“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,” wrote Netanyahu.

Miftah has claimed that “Jews use the blood of Christians in Jewish Passover.” Per the itinerary, both lawmakers were also going to meet with an NGO called Defense for Children International – Palestine, which has ties to Islamic terror group “PFLP.”

So, this disgusting organization, Miftah, is footing the bill for Omar and Tlaib, and they are questioning why Israel is denying them entrance? They call Israel, “Palestine,” and have the gall to become incensed when Netanyahu refuses to play their sick game and bans them?

Meanwhile, Omar is claiming Israel denying her entry has something to do with Trump and a “Muslim ban.” 

“Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected Members of Congress. Denying entry into Israel not only limits our ability to learn from Israelis, but also to enter the Palestinian territories,” Omar said. 

Trump never had a “Muslim ban.” That’s another leftist talking point. Omar is referring to Trump banning seven countries for immigration for 90 days, the same seven countries Barack Obama had identified in 2015 as “terror hot spots.”

Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the entire debacle. “Do you think Israel should let them in, folks? How far does this go? You have two women who are out of control in their hatred for Israel and Jewish people. It’s their lifeblood. Before they became elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, these women grew up hating Jews. They grew up as anti-Semites,” Limbaugh said.

“Israel has enough problems with people all over the world trying to wipe them out. There’s no way you roll out the red carpet for your enemy because there’s no way Israel is going to change these people’s minds,” he added.

It comes down to common sense. Omar and Tlaib couldn’t be so naive as to think Israel would allow them entry after they insulted their nation. They also knew the Israelis would find out who sponsored their trip. Omar and Tlaib wanted the controversy so they could level their anti-Semitic accusations at Israel and blame President Trump, too. What a pair of un-American ingrates. Here’s hoping they both will see defeat in 2020.
