  • Israel bars Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from visiting

    Israel is blocking two US Democratic lawmakers, who are prominent critics of the Israeli government, from visiting.

    Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib were due to visit the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem next week.

    Both have supported the boycott movement against Israel, but Israeli law allows supporters of the campaign to be banned from visiting.

    President Trump earlier tweeted it would show "great weakness" if the pair were allowed entry.

    Ms Omar described Israel's move as "an insult to democratic values and a chilling response to a visit by government officials from an allied nation".

    Mr Trump earlier had taken to Twitter to urge that the two lawmakers be blocked from visiting, adding that "they hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds".

    So many people making stupid decisions.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

        So Tlaib scored an own goal with this one.

        She wrote a letter asking for admission to Israel to visit her 90 year old grandmother stating it might be her last chance to see her saying she would respect any restrictions placed on her and not promote boycotting Israel on her visit.

        Well, it looks like she was full of shit and only asked for this fully expecting it to be rejected so she could use it for publicity because when her request was approved, she then rejected it tweeting:

        "Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in--fighting against racism, oppression & injustice."

        To which the interior minister who approved the requested responded on Twitter with:

        ""I approved her request as a gesture of goodwill on a humanitarian basis, but it was just a provocative request, aimed at bashing the State of Israel. Apparently, her hate for Israel overcomes her love for her grandmother."

        That didn't go how she thought it was going to go.
