Bibi boycotts the Squad

Bibi Netanyahu has denied permission to Squad members Omar and Tlaib to enter Israel. Their plan, of course, was to condemn Israel on Israeli soil, then perhaps stage some kind of political event where the “Palestinians” (perhaps children or the mother of a dead child) are paraded in order to show how evil Israelis really are. One of their goals is to further the BDS movement in the United States.

Israeli officials have decided to block U.S. Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., from entering the country as part of a planned visit, a reversal that comes amid pressure from President Trump and concerns about their support for boycotts of Israel.

The move prompted a massive outcry from Democratic lawmakers in Washington, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling it a “sign of weakness” and Omar accusing Israel of implementing “Trump’s Muslim ban.” [Well, of course they did.]

But the Israeli government staunchly defended the decision — suggesting the lawmakers had ulterior motives with the planned trip. [They are right about that.]

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin 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.

Poor, sad, lovers of anybody who is anti-Israel and anti-Americans. I would call them anti-semites and Communists. Just my opinion.

    I said earlier that, in a way, they win either way. And, all this is what I expected. Israel has perfectly legitimate reasons to keep them out.

    I read yesterday that the “squad” has very little financial/donations support from those who live in their districts

    Their re-election campaign money is coming from outside sources… It did not say where

    I think Israel should have let them in. Then arrested them as enemy agents.
