This was not a fact-finding mission that Tlaib and Omar wanted to embark on. 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. Miftah advocates for the BDS Movement and for terrorism against Israel.
In fact, Miftah praised Wafa Idris on their website in 2006. Wafa Idris was the Palestinian terrorist who killed one Israeli civilian and injured 150 people in a 2002 suicide bombing in downtown Jerusalem. Miftah has also accused Israel of “massacres,” “apartheid,” “summary executions” of Palestinian youth and “Judaizing” Jerusalem.
The group also engages in blood-libels against the Jewish people, saying that Jews kill non-Jewish children and use their blood in religious rituals.
Shame on the Democrat Party for admonishing Israel for preventing these two neo-Nazi members of congress from entering Israel. #Jexodus!
Exposed: What Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib were planning to do
The Palestinian groups that sponsored the canceled trip to Israel by Tlaib and Omar promoted anti-Semitism, pushed boycotts of the Jewish state, sympathized with terrorists, and claimed Jews use “the blood of Christians in during Passover.” Read More…
By JTA Staff, August 18, 2019:
By now it seems clear that Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are not going to be visiting Israel or the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria.
Israel’s government announced Thursday that it would not allow the Democratic congresswomen to make their scheduled visit this weekend because both have declared support for the Israel boycott movement. A 2017 law entitles the State to deny entry to boycott activists.
(Tlaib was granted entry on a humanitarian trip to visit her grandmother in the West Bank. First she accepted, but hours later rejected.)
Explaining the decision, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu cited the lawmakers’ itinerary, which he said “reveals that the sole purpose of their visit is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it.”
Where they would have gone
In broad strokes, the itinerary — titled “Delegation to Palestine” — took Tlaib and Omar through major Palestinian Authority (PA) population centers in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, and to a string of meetings with pro-PA nonprofits and activists, as well as international human rights groups.
It featured no meetings with Israeli officials of any political persuasion, including Arab lawmakers. The plan also did not feature any extended time spent within Israel’s internationally recognized borders.
(On Friday, Omar tweeted that “I planned to hold meetings with members of the Knesset (both Jewish and Arab) along with Israeli security officials.”)
Who organized the trip
Miftah, a PA NGO chaired by Ashrawi, organized the trip. Its website claims its mission is to “promote the principles of democracy and good governance within various components of Palestinian society” and to “engage local and international public opinion and official circles on the Palestinian cause.”
The group, like many PA civil society organizations, supports the movement to boycott Israel. But it has also praised PA suicide bombers and published an age-old anti-Semitic stereotype, for which it later apologized. Netanyahu described Miftah as “an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel.”
A report on the group’s site from 2006 about PA women in the second intifada praises Wafa Idris, who killed one Israeli civilian and injured 150 people in a 2002 suicide bombing in downtown Jerusalem. The report says Idris, the first female suicide bomber of the second intifada, “marked the beginning of a string of Palestinian women dedicated to sacrificing their lives for the cause.”
Years later, in 2013, Miftah staffer Nawaf Al Zaru posted an article on its site criticizing President Barack Obama for hosting a Passover seder at the White House. In the article, Al Zaru repeated a false accusation that Jews kill non-Jewish children and use their blood in religious rituals.
“Does Obama in fact know the relationship, for example, between ‘Passover’ and ‘Christian blood’..?! Or ‘Passover’ and ‘Jewish blood rituals?!’” Al Zaru wrote. “Much of the chatter and gossip about historical Jewish blood rituals in Europe are real and not fake as they claim; the Jews used the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover.”
