Rep. Rashida Tlaib Cancels Israel Visit

  • U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib D-Mich. listens to a question from a constituent in Wixom Mich. Thursday Aug. 15 2019

"Omar and Tlaib weren't denied entry to Israel because they are Muslim, they were denied entry because they are tied to terrorism, actively support the BDS movement and do not believe the country has the right to exist".

Tlaib tweeted a photo of her grandmother after news broke of the Israeli government's decision to lock her out of the country.

"In my attempt to visit Palestine, I've experienced the same racist treatment that many Palestinian-Americans endure when encountering the Israeli government".

There is some political consideration here, David, which is that Netanyahu is running for reelection next month. Facing multiple corruption charges, a loss could mean a prison term for the four-time prime minister. The Interior Ministry released a letter purportedly signed by Tlaib in which she promised not to advocate boycotts during her visit.

Yesterday, Israel reversed a previous decision and determined that two Israel-hating congresswomen - Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib - would not be permitted to visit the country.

"Rashida sees her granny as a second mother, she has always supported her. Rashida says she owes her success to her grandmother".

Promoting a bill for Boycotts, Divestments, and Sanctions targeting Israel. Tlaib elaborated on her decision in a statement. So she declined the offer. "Especially in light of her commitment to abide by Israeli law and not advance boycotts against us".

Where a USA president was once quoting the Qur'an to broker peace, Trump uses his position to bully our first Muslim women in Congress; where American-Israeli leadership once leaned toward the "hard labors" of negotiations, Twitter-happy Trump of course chooses the "easy habits" of harassment and division.

The premier was accused of putting loyalty to Trump and the Republican Party ahead of Israel s clear interest in maintaining bipartisan USA support.

"I have therefore chose to not travel to Palestine and Israel at this time. How sad that two leaders... are risking a bipartisan relationship built between these two nations over generations". They do support a boycott movement. Moreover, Washington is set to give Israel $3.1 billion this year as part of a 10-year, $38 billion military aid package reached under the Obama administration. "I will respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel during my visit", she initially wrote. This is the group paying for and organizing their trip to Israel. Both representatives have a history of anti-Israel activism and anti-Semitic controversies, including spreading anti-Semitic tropes such as "dual loyalty" accusations against Americans who back Israel. Its greatest asset is the feckless and right-wing character of its nominal opposition-the Democratic Party.

Trump weighed in late Friday, calling Tlaib s turnaround "a complete setup". "If she didn't want to meet with Abbas, that shouldn't turn her into a persona non grata".
