Their districts are in awful shape. Instead of trying to improve the lives of their constituents, they are focused on using their new found political influence to demonize Israel. Relentlessly. Tlaib and Omar do not understand that they were elected by the voters of their respective districts, and not by the supporters of the BDS Movement.
If these vicious anti-Semites and pathological liars wanted to provide a voice for the Palestinians, they could have joined 41 of their Democrat Party colleagues on the recent bi-partisan AIPAC sponsored trip to Israel. The trip included a meeting with Mahmoud Abbas and other Palestinian Authority officials.
Tlaib and Omar refused to do that. Instead, they wanted to go on a propaganda tour of Israel funded by a pro-BDS NGO. Tlaib and Omar are sick with hate, but that is to be expected given how they were raised and educated.
If AIPAC had a spine they would have organized a counter press conference, to respond to the lies that were being spewed by Tlaib and Omar at their propaganda press conference. #Jexodus
U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib held a news conference Monday to condemn the Israeli government for last week’s decision banning the congresswomen from entering the country. Many observers cite President Trump’s pressure as the main reason behind Israel’s last-minute decision to ban the congresswomen. However, other key factors are at play – including the fact that the congresswomen’s itinerary was organized by a group with a history of glorifying terrorists. (IPT)
The trip, titled “U.S. Congressional Delegation to Palestine” and did not include any scheduled visits with Israeli officials.
US REPS. ILHAN OMAR, RASHIDA TLAIB BLAST ISRAEL OVER ENTRACE BAN DURING PRESS CONFERENCE
By i24News, August 18, 2019:
US Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) held a press conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota Monday afternoon to address the Netanyahu government’s decision to bar them entry into the country last week.
The lawmakers in no uncertain terms excoriated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for denying two duly elected members of Congress access to the country while highlighting “the human costs of the occupation and travel restrictions on Palestinians and others.”
“Netanyahu’s decision to deny us entry might be unprecedented for members of Congress, but it is the policy of his government when it comes to Palestinians,” Omar said at the opening of the media event.

“This is the policy of his government when it comes to anyone who holds views that threaten the occupation. A policy that has been [egged] on and supported by (US President Donald) Trump’s administration,” she added.
Referring to the $3 billion in aid the US gives to Israel each year, Omar said, “this is predicated on their being an important ally in the region and the only democracy in the Middle East.”
“But denying visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally.”
