OPINION

The Israeli government announced Thursday it would not allow Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota to enter their borders for a planned trip into Palestinian territory, citing the two lawmakers’ support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Under Israeli law, anyone who supports the boycott of Israel may be banned from the country.

Their trip was planned by Miftah, a nonprofit organization led by Palestinian lawmaker and veteran peace negotiator Hanan Ashrawi, according to the Washington Post.

Now The two Democrats also threatened US aid to the Jewish State.

Rep. Ilhan Omar: We give Israel more than $3 million in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region and (airquotes) “the only democracy” in the Middle East. But denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally and denying millions of people freedom of movement, or expression or self determination is not consistent with being a democracy. We must be asking as Israel’s ally the Netanyahu government stop the expansion of settlements on Palestinian land and ensure full rights to Palestinians if we are to give them aid. These are not just my views.

Now this:

Rep. Ilhan Omar just made the ludicrous claim that the Israeli government prevented her and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib from doing their “job” last week by refusing them entry to the Jewish state.

“Let’s be clear: the goal of our trip was to witness firsthand what is happening on the ground in Palestine and hear from stakeholders —our job as Members of Congress,” Omar wrote in a tweet.

It appears Rep. Tlaib agrees with Rep. Omar when it comes to whom she actually represents in Congress:

They should know by now what is their job as members of the Congress, they should represent the American people.
