Tlaib and Omar Wanted to Spread Hate; Israel Was Right to Refuse Them
Those who support peace in the Middle East should support Israel in banning Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib from entering Israel. Their sole purpose was to create unrest and spread hate.
As Israel’s Interior Ministry noted, “These are people who use the most influential platform in the world to express support for BDS organizations which call for the boycotting of Israel. The State of Israel respects the American Congress, as part of the close alliance between our two countries, but we cannot permit people into the country who seek to hurt the State of Israel.”
Those who deny Israel’s right to exist should not be allowed to enter the nation.
Ze’ev Jabotinsky, one of modern Zionism’s forefathers, noted in 1911, “Instead of excessive apology and instead of turning our backs to the accusers — as there is nothing to apologize for, and nobody to apologize to — it is long overdue to respond to all current and future accusations, reproaches, suspicions, slanders and denunciations by simply folding our arms and loudly, clearly, coldly and calmly answer, ‘Go to Hell!’”
Israel as a nation is a modern miracle.
Israel’s decision to deny entry to Omar and Tlaib is the right one. They support BDS and support a movement that seeks to destroy the only democracy in the Middle East.
