“Israel on Thursday announced that it would deny Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) entry to the country during an upcoming overseas trip, according to multiple reports,” reports The Hill.

“The congresswomen have supported Palestinian rights and backed the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement targeting Israel. Both have been accused by other members of Congress of using anti-Semitic language, but leaders of both parties had said they should be allowed to visit Israel,” adds the website.
President Trump urged the Israeli government to bar Reps. Omar and Tlaib from the country on social media Thursday; saying “they hate Israel and all Jewish people.”
“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!” posted the President.

The Israeli government may deny access to controversial Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from the Jewish State in the coming weeks; citing their vocal support for anti-Israeli boycotts.
“An Israeli government official decided Thursday that U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., should be barred from entering the country for a planned visit this weekend, according to Israeli media,” reports Fox News.
“The two freshman congresswomen support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), a pro-Palestinian advocacy effort, and Israeli law says those supporting boycotts of the country may be denied entry. The decision to enforce the law against Tlaib and Omar was reportedly made by Israeli Interior Minister Arye Deri, but a formal decision and announcement have yet to be made as other parties weigh in,” adds Fox.
A NEW LOW: AOC ‘Absolutely’ Agrees with Host Slamming ‘Criminal Israeli Government’ and ‘White Supremacist Jews’

“There’s a lot of young Jewish people that I know that are absolutely against the occupation and I wanted you, because often on this program, we have the freedom to address the fact that something that you know people, it’s an oxymoron, how do you have white supremacist Jews? How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are legit aligning with racism and white supremacy, but they’re Jewish and it’s something that most people can’t wrap their brains around. But it’s a real thing and what’s going on with Israel and Palestine, while it’s very deep, it is very, very criminal. It is very, very unjust,” said ‘EBRO in the morning.’
“Absolutely, and I think to where we’re at as a country when it comes to Israel-Palestine is very much a generational thing. I think that when we start looking at it through that lens, a lot of this stuff starts to make sense. It’s like what you’re talking about, young Jews in Israel are sick of this,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
President Trump called-out ‘The Squad’ on social media earlier this month; blasting the four freshman Congresswomen as “racist troublemakers” and “not very smart.”
“The ‘Squad’ is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border…And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!” posted the President on Twitter.

‘The Squad’ consists of Representatives Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley.
Rashida Tlaib sounded the alarm on President Trump’s tax cuts Monday; pledging to repeal the legislation and give the money “back to the people that earned it.”
“Recently, I introduced the Boost Act. This legislation completely repeals the GOP Tax Scam… Do you know what I did with that money? What I said? We’re going to go ahead and put it in the pockets of every day Americans… We give it back to the people that earned it,” said Tlaib.
BAD EDUCATION: Rep. Tlaib Supports California College Ending ‘Israeli Study Abroad Program’

“A California college is scheduled to vote Thursday on whether to end its study abroad program with an Israeli university — a push that appears to have picked up the support of freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib,” reports Fox News.

“Why would we not suspend our program with China? Or take our longest standing program in Nepal, where the Pitzer in Nepal program has been run for over 40 years. During that time they have had a bloody civil war that killed 19,000 people,” said the president of the College Council. “Why Israel?”
Tlaib’s spokesperson did not respond to Fox News’ request for comments.
