    Tlaib, Omar Barred From Israel...

    Good...

    JERUSALEM (AP) — The Latest on Israel’s decision to bar two U.S. Democratic congresswomen from visiting (all times local):

    6:10 p.m.

    Israel’s deputy foreign minister says the government has decided to bar two U.S. Democratic congresswomen who support the international boycott movement from entering the country.

    Tzipi Hotovely told Israel Radio in an interview Thursday that “Israel has decided not to allow” Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota to visit as planned.

    She says it is in keeping with a policy of denying entry to those who advocate boycotts of Israel.

    Her remarks came shortly after President Donald Trump tweeted that “it would show great weakness” if Israel allowed them in.

    The two newly-elected Muslim members of Congress are outspoken critics of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. Tlaib’s family immigrated to the United States from the West Bank.

    This is wrong.!





    They should allow them in, and put them up somewhere along the area where they are constantly being attacked. ...and give them umbrellas for protection.

    Is everyone still enjoying the trade war? More Trump nonsense:
    An American president urging another nation to deny entry to US citizens, let alone members of Congress, is unusual in the extreme. Viewed in the context of Mr Trump's ongoing feud with these congresswomen, however, it makes perfect sense. The lines between foreign and domestic policy, between the public actions and personal grievances, have always been blurry with this president.

    Israel is now allowing Tlaib in because she wrote a letter saying she wants to visit her 90 year old grandmother who lives in the West Bank, and promises not to do anything to encourage any boycotts against Israel while she is there.
