Rashida Tlaib's grandmother to Trump: 'May God ruin him'

18 Août, 2019, 01:45 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Speaking with Reuters from her garden in Beit Ur Al-Fauqa, a village in the West Bank, Muftia Tlaib said: "Trump tells me I should be happy Rashida is not coming".

The Trump tweet came among a string of messages commenting on Israel's decision Friday to allow Tlaib to visit her family - notably, her elderly grandmother - in the West Bank, for humanitarian reasons, a day after barring her from entering the country.

The boycott movement, formally known as the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions movement, aims to end worldwide support for Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians, as well as its continued construction of West Bank settlements, considered a violation of global law.

She accused Netanyahu and President Trump of "weakness" over the move but said it will not affect strong ties between Israel and the U.S.

On Friday, Israel reversed course again and said Tlaib would be allowed entry so long as she "committed to accept all the demands of Israel to respect the restrictions imposed on her in the visit, and she also promised not to advance boycotts against Israel during her visit". The only real victor here is Tlaib's grandmother. "Israel acted appropriately!" Trump wrote on Twitter.

Israel on Thursday barred Tlaib and Omar - the first two Muslim women ever elected to Congress - after initially saying it would allow their visit.

Tlaib later announced Friday she would not be making the trip because "visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions meant to humiliate me would break my grandmother's heart".

Israel's interior minister, however, blasted Tlaib's decision and alleged it showed that she hated Israel more than she loved her grandmother.

The host of "Real Time with Bill Maher" made the comment during a live episode of his weekly program in light of Israel recently banning two US congresswomen from entering the country over their support of the worldwide BDS movement.

Omar contradicted the prime minister on Friday, saying she had planned to sit with Knesset members and security officials. -Israeli relations will survive under Netanyahu and Trump despite their "weaknesses".

Tlaib did not describe the conditions imposed on her visit.

People hold signs in support of US Democratic Representative for Michigan's 13th congressional district Rashida Tlaib during "Shabbat in the Park With Rashida" on August 16, 2019 in Pallister Park in Detroit, Michigan. Israeli media reported that she had agreed to "not promote boycotts against Israel during my visit". "I'm here with my family", Tlaib said. "We won't allow those who deny our right to exist in this world to enter Israel". The ban was also criticized by the pro-Israel AIPAC lobby group, and was not backed by the umbrella Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, even after the Conference hosted a call by Israel's Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer seeking to justify the decision.
