Why did Tlaib and Omar choose not to join them?
The two anti-Israel, Jew-hating Democrat members are scheduled to make their “grand entrance” into Israel this weekend, and although Israeli officials had assured everyone that they would be allowed to enter the country, there are now reports that Netanyahu will bar them from Israel.
Via Israel Hayom.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday morning was deliberating whether to allow two anti-Israel congresswomen, Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), from entering the country, Israel Hayom has learned.
In July, the two Democratic congresswomen announced they would be taking an official trip to both Israel and the Palestinian territories at the end of August, immediately sparking questions over how Jerusalem would handle the situation.
On Wednesday, Israel Hayom reported that Tlaib and Omar would be arriving in Israel on Friday afternoon and would most likely be accompanied by at least one other US lawmaker with hostile views toward Israel, whose identity was still unknown. Tlaib and Omar had initially planned to land in Israel on Sunday, Aug. 18, but in an effort to mislead Israeli authorities, they apparently decided to hasten their arrival….
