Israel banned Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Rashid, Tlaib entry to the territory of the state and of Palestine — an hour after President trump said in a tweet that the authorities would show “weakness”, allowing them to come.
“It would be a huge sign of weakness to let Congresswoman Omar and Tlaib. — wrote the acting head of the US — They hate Israel and all Jews. There is nothing that would change their opinion. <…> They are just a shame!”
It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!

Next week Congresswoman to go on a trip organised by the social group Miftah, headed by politician and activist Hanan Ashrawi. During the visit, they were going to visit the Palestinian cities of Hebron, Ramallah and Bethlehem, and to Israel annexed East Jerusalem.
And Omar, and Tlaib support the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions or BDS movement, calling for various forms of boycott of Israel as long as it will not change policy against citizens of Arab origin and Palestinians and will not abandon the wall in the West Bank.
According to Israeli law, entry into the territory of a state can be prohibited to anyone who is a supporter of BDS. Last month the House of representatives adopted a resolution condemning the boycott for the “propaganda of collective guilt, isolation and punishment of a whole people“. Omar and Tlaib voted against the proposal.
“Israel is free and democratic country, ready for any critics. — commented on the decision of Prime Minister Netanyahu in an official statement , There is only one exception: the law prohibits the entry of those who have supported its boycott”.
