Israel Prevents Congresswomen From Entering Country
Israel Prevents Congresswomen From Entering Country. Democratic congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib were recently barred from entering Israel on Aug. 15. . Omar and Tlaib are the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress and have been vocal in their criticisms of Israel. The two women were planning to visit multiple sites in the country including Hebron, East Jerusalem and the Al Aqsa Mosque. The decision was announced by Israel’s deputy foreign minister, Tzipi Hotovely. Israel has decided — we won’t enable the members of Congress to enter the country… We won’t allow those who deny our right to exist in this world to enter Israel. In principle, this is a very justified decision, Tzipi Hotovely, via Fox News. It was made just hours after President Donald Trump publicly called for Omar and Tlaib to be denied entry. . 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….They are a disgrace!, Donald Trump, via Twitter
