BREAKING: Per Fox News, Rep. Tlaib has decided not to visit her grandmother in Israel.
BREAKING: Rep. Tlaib will be allowed to visit her 90-year old grandmother for humanitarian reasons.
Ever since my collegiate days, from 1976-1980, when I was a Radio News Director, I have watched with stunned incredulity, as the American Liberal Political Ideology and its adherents, have vocally castigated the country of Israel for defending themselves against the violent factions of nomadic tribes , who wish for nothing else than their annihilation of both the country of Israel and their citizenry.
The irony of their naiveté, is the fact that, in the 1960’s, American Liberals were among some of Israel’s strongest supporters. However, as of this writing, they continue to blatantly back the Palestinians and the Terrorist Organization known as Hamas.
Yesterday, two Muslim anti-Semitic Far Left Democratic Congresswomen found out that words and actions mean things.
And, they are not happy about it.
FoxNews.com reports that
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., on Thursday accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of implementing his own “Muslim ban” after his government said it would block her and another Democratic congresswoman from entering Israel.
The move – announced shortly after President Trump tweeted that it would “show great weakness” to allow them in – has ignited a massive outcry from Washington Democrats, as Netanyahu’s government stands by the decision arguing the U.S. lawmakers have an ulterior, anti-Israel agenda.
“It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government,” Omar said in a statement. “Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected members of Congress.”
Both Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., the other lawmaker barred by Israel, are Muslim. They are also outspoken critics of Israel and have expressed support for boycotts of the country. In a tweet, Tlaib ripped the decision as “a sign of weakness.”
In her statement, Omar defended her desire to travel to the region, saying the trip is intended to be educational.
“Denying entry into Israel not only limits our ability to learn from Israelis, but also to enter the Palestinian territories,” Omar said. “Sadly, this is not a surprise given the public positions of Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has consistently resisted peace efforts, restricted the freedom of movement of Palestinians, limited public knowledge of the brutal realities of the occupation and aligned himself with Islamophobes like Donald Trump.”
Netanyahu, explaining the decision at length on his office’s Twitter account, said that Tlaib and Omar’s itinerary “revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.”
Netanyahu said their travel plans referred to a trip to “Palestine,” not Israel, and the congresswomen were not interested in meeting with Israeli officials. He went on to note that the Palestinian organization that planned the visit, MIFTAH, supports the boycott movement, and that people associated with the group have supported terror against Israel in the past.
He said Israel welcomes critics with the exception of those who support boycotts of the Jewish State.
Omar and Tlaib had planned to visit Jerusalem and the West Bank on a tour organized by a Palestinian organization aimed at highlighting the plight of the Palestinians. Tlaib’s family immigrated to the United States from the West Bank, where she still has close relatives.
Shortly before the decision was announced, Trump had tweeted that “it would show great weakness” if Israel allowed them to visit. “They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds,” he said, calling the two congresswomen “a disgrace.”
Other Democrats in the U.S. Congress denounced Israel’s decision.
Top ranking Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said it was a sign of weakness instead of strength and “will only hurt the U.S.-Israeli relationship and support for Israel in America.”
A close colleague of Omar and Tlaib — New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — tweeted that Netanyahu’s “discriminatory decision” to ban members of Congress from Israel “harms” diplomacy. She said she would not visit Israel “until all members of Congress are allowed.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., similarly said: “Israel’s denial of entry to Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar is a sign of weakness, and beneath the dignity of the great State of Israel.”
“Banning Congresswomen Omar and Tlaib from entering Israel and Palestine is a sign of enormous disrespect to these elected leaders, to the United States Congress, and to the principles of democracy,” presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said in a tweet. “The Israeli government should reverse this decision and allow them in.”
As is quite evident from her words and actions since being elected to Congress, not only is Representative Omar a Far Left Radical, she is also most definitely a Radical Islamist.
Ilhan Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn.
Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.
The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.
In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.
Democrat Ilhan Omar ran against the BDS – anti-Israel -movement.
But now that she won her election she is open about her support for BDS.
Per their website BDSMovement.net,
The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.
Of course, Representative Omar is also supported by and supportive of CAIR – The Council on American-Islamic Relations.
…From its inception, CAIR has sought to portray itself as a moderate, mainstream organization, and as early as 1996 its officials became frequent guests at State Department and White House events. In the aftermath of 9/11, when the Bush administration tried to reassure American Muslims that Islam was not the target of the war on terrorism, CAIR officials were prominent among the invitees. CAIR was the main Islamic group to gain U.S. media access in the post-9/11 period, providing the “Muslim view” of the terrorist attacks and of America’s response to them. As self-acclaimed Muslim spokesmen, CAIR officials typically refused to “simplify the situation” by blaming Osama bin Laden for the attacks on America. Moreover, while they eventually were induced by journalists to condemn Palestinian suicide terror in a pro forma manner, they hedged their disavowals by describing it as an understandable response to Israeli brutality.
And then there is Rep. Omar’s “fellow traveler” in more ways than one, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib…
FoxNews.com reported a few months ago that
House Republican leaders called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to “take action” against Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Sunday after Tlaib said that thinking about the Holocaust gave her “kind of a calming feeling.”
Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, made the comments while discussing the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians during an appearance on the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery.”
In case you do not remember, the night that Rep. Tlaib was sworn in as a member of the 116th Congress, she was videotaped vowing to impeach the president. This was shortly after she penned an op-ed for The Detroit Free Press outlining the case for impeachment.
The video showed Tlaib telling supporters.
“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says: ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf***er.’”
Tlaib is a Black Muslim, born in America to parents of Palestinian descent.
As I have been writing over the last several years, Liberals are nothing if not predictable.
They view everything in terms of politics and race, not necessarily in that order.
For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values, including our relationship with our closest ally, Israel, since their birth as a country in 1948.
What we are seeing now, as regards the rampant anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party, which began under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base.
Anti-Semitism is the norm in Marxism in all of its forms, including “Democratic Socialism”.
Anti-Semitic groups tend to gravitate toward each other finding solace and kindred spirits in their shared hatred of the Jewish people.
For those of you who are old enough to have actually studied history before the Liberals started revising it, the world has bore witness to this phenomena before.
A socialist political party in a developed nation joined forces with Islamists before, based on their mutual hatred of Jews.
You may remember this. They were the National Socialist Party of Germany, otherwise known as the Nazis.
They caused the mass extermination of millions of European Jews, the Holocaust which gives Congresswoman Tlaib “a calming feeling”.
The political philosophies which the Modern Democrats are now embracing are the anti-thesis of whom they claim to be.
If their trip was simply political, Omar and Tlaib could have joined other members of Congress on their recent trip to Israel.
Instead, they were coming to spit in the face of the Israelis and to stir up trouble between Israel and the Palestinians.
The government of Israel had every right to ban them from entering their country.
Would you allow two individuals who despised you and your family and wished that you did not exist into YOUR house?
