ANTI-SEMITES TO VISIT ISRAEL: Israeli Ambassador Says Omar And Tlaib Will Be Allowed In Country

Anti-Semites Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar will be allowed into Israel during a trip there in a few weeks, the Israeli ambassador said Friday, potentially heading off a diplomatic spat.

“Out of respect for the U.S. Congress and the great alliance between Israel and America, we would not deny entry to any member of Congress into Israel,” said Ron Dermer, Israel’s envoy to the United States.

Omar said Wednesday the pair are set to visit the country in the coming weeks, and earlier this week introduced a new resolution supporting the right of Americans to boycott Israel, to counter a separate measure condemning the BDS movement. The boycott movement has been deemed anti-Semitic and hateful by Israel’s defenders.

Had Israel’s government chosen to deny the polarizing lawmakers, it would have come amid a contentious war of words between Omar, Tlaib, their fellow Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, and President Donald Trump that has dragged on for almost a week.

  1. Although I see the diplomatic point of letting these vermin in, I hope they will not be shown any official kovod by the government. Instead, let them meet with Arab IDF soldiers, Dima Tayeh an Arab, pro-Israel prospective MK who is shunned by her family, Mrs. Zoabi, & others who are proud Muslims & even prouder Israelis. But they won’t, they’ll hang out with Hamas & the PA. I wonder who is paying for their security? Silly me, I am.
