Yesterday 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.
Today Israel decided to allow Rashida Tlaib to visit her grandmother after she sent a letter begging to come.
The nation of Israel has changed its mind and will allow Rep. Rashida Tlaib visit the nation on “humanitarian grounds.”
But when Israel said it would allow her to come she slapped them in the face by saying she would not make the trip, Reuters reported.
U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib on Friday said she would not visit her family in the West Bank as planned despite a reprieve by the Israeli government allowing her visit.
“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,” Tlaib, a Democrat representing Michigan, said in a series of tweets.
Their trip was planned by Miftah, a nonprofit organization led by Palestinian lawmaker and veteran peace negotiator Hanan Ashrawi, according to the Washington Post.
So, what exactly is Mifta and what are their connections to terrorism that convinced PM Netanyahu to cancel their trip?
NGO Monitor describes the group’s link to terrorism:
In a January 2017 interview for Deutsche Welle, founder and chair of the Miftah board of directors Hanan Ashrawi claimed that Palestinian “attacks and their perpetrators” (as described by the interviewer, Tim Sebastian) “are seen by the people as resistance. And you cannot somehow adopt the language of either the international community or the occupier by describing anybody who resists as terrorist (sic)” (3:20).
Described Wafa Idrees, one of the first female Palestinian suicide bombers, as “the beginning of a string of Palestinian women dedicated to sacrificing their lives for the cause.” Idrees detonated herself on January 27, 2002, killing
In any case, Israel shouldn’t have changed their mind and let Rashida visit Israel.
