Rashida Tlaib, Freshman Rep. (D-MI) said on Friday that she would not accept the permitted visit to see her grandmother in Isreal’s West Bank after the Jewish nation granted her entry to do so under humanitarian conditions.
Earlier today, Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri announced Tlaib had requested and was granted permission to enter the West Bank to visit her 90-year-old grandmother, along with her other relatives.”This might be my last chance to see her. I will respect any restrictions and will not encourage boycotts against Israel during my visit.” Tlaib wrote to Deri.
The development comes following Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely verified the Jewish nation would refuse entry to the far-left rookie congresswoman and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), citing their support for the BDS movement. Hotovely added “We won’t allow those who reject our freedom to endure in this world to invade Israel. In proposition, this is a very justified determination,”
The publication came after a Channel 12 broadcast stating Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was considering a proposal to bar the “Squad” members from entering the Jewish state on Sunday. In 2017, Israel passed a law that prohibits an immigrant admission who “knowingly issues a public call for boycotting Israel.” The Interior and Strategic Affairs ministries have used the rule to deny anti-Israel activists entry to the country.
“The two-member congressional visitation plan shows that their intent is to hurt Israel and increase its unrest against it, As a vibrant and free democracy, Israel is open to any critic and criticism, with one limitation: Israel’s law forbids the entry of people who call and operate to strike Israel, as is the case with other governments that prevent the entry of people whose judgment harms the country,” Netanyahu said.
In current days, President Donald Trump allegedly lamented the thought of the far-left lawmakers visiting Israel and took to social media Twitter on Thursday to express his displeasure.
In July, the House of Representatives powerfully passed a verdict rejecting the BDS campaign targeting Israel, a measure Omar and Tlaib voted against. The resolution, formally known as House Resolution 246, also called for further security assistance to Israel.
Omar previously proposed a measure countering the anti-BDS resolution which declares Americans’ right to participate in boycotts, which Tlaib is a co-sponsor of.
