This is why the BDS Movement is spreading. This is why the Democrat Party has become anti-Israel. It is because Jewish organizations in the United States are incompetent cowards, and don’t know how to fight a war.
Why should the Israeli government allow these two neo-Nazi thugs to slander Israel and the Jewish people? Nothing positive can be achieved from such a propaganda trip.
Tlaib and Omar would surely post lies and blood libels about the Jewish state on social media, for the purpose of increasing the popularity of the BDS Movement in the United States. Such posts would also endanger pro-Israel American Jews, particularly on college campuses.
Let these Jewish Democrats visit a college campus where the BDS Movement thrives. Let them ask the Jewish students who are being terrorized on campus by members of the BDS Movement, if they think that it is a bad idea for Israel to ban Tlaib and Omar from entering Israel.
Jewish Democrats urge Israel not to bar congresswomen from visiting.
“We urge the government of Israel to reject President Trump’s unprecedented and ill-advised recommendation to deny Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) entry into Israel.”By Omri Nahmias, Jerusalem Post, August 15, 2019:The Jewish Democratic Council of America has urged the Israeli government to permit Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib to visit Israel. The council’s executive director Halie Soifer said the following:
“As strong supporters of Israel and of the U.S.-Israel relationship, we urge the government of Israel to reject President Trump’s unprecedented and ill-advised recommendation to deny Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) entry into Israel.“Banning members of Congress from visiting Israel, where they can see facts on the ground with their own eyes, is counterproductive and plays into President Trump’s goal of politicizing support for Israel,” she said.
“Less than a month ago, Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer said that, ‘out of respect for the US Congress and the great alliance between Israel and America, we would not deny entry to any member of Congress into Israel.’ He was right – and Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu should not reverse this decision at the urging of President Trump.”
As strong supporters of the U.S.-Israel relationship, we urge the government of Israel to reject President Trump’s unprecedented and ill-advised recommendation to deny Congresswomen @Ilhan and @RepRashida entry into Israel. This is counterproductive. Full statement below. https://t.co/GRHxLJr83W

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!
