Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), two members of “the Squad” of freshmen minority socialist Congresswomen, are being denied entry into the state of Israel following their history of making incendiary comments against Israel and supporting policies to harm the Jewish state.
The fake news media is attributing this decision to President Donald Trump, who has put the focus on the shameful record of these legislators despite being frequently called racist and sexist for doing so.
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!

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely officially announced the decision that Tlaib and Omar would be banned from entering the state of Israel earlier today.
“Israel has decided — we won’t enable the members of Congress to enter the country,” she told the Kan public broadcaster.
“We won’t allow those who deny our right to exist in this world to enter Israel. In principle this is a very justified decision,” she added.
Liberals are enraged by the decision, as it delegitimizes the radical socialist views of Omar and Tlaib, the first two Muslim women ever elected to the U.S. Congress.
1. The decision by Israel to ban Tlaib & Omar is unprecedented and a massive slap in the face of the US Congress. Bibi, Trump & their allies seem determined to end the bipartisan nature of the US-Israel relationship for their own short-term political benefit.

BREAKING: Israel just barred US Reps Omar and Tlaib entry into the country. No doubt due to Trump pressuring them not to. This is nothing but another attack on America by Trump. Trump is disgusting, pathetic, racist and un-American. He needs to resign or be impeached immediately.

For all those who say there is no occupation: Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar want to visit the Palestinian territories. However, it’s Israel that will get to decide whether or not they’re allowed to enter and visit Palestinians. That’s just another part of occupation

However, Tlaib and Omar have nobody to blame but themselves for the decision made by the administration of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. They have made offensive comments about Israel and supported policies against the Jewish state since before they were even elected last year.
Omar infamously wrote, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” in reference to AIPAC on her Twitter account, inferring that the Jewish lobby was buying off the support of Congress. She also made a statement questioning whether Jewish people could be loyal Americans.
“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” Omar said during a town hall in March.
Omar and Tlaib are also huge proponents of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against the state of Israel. Tlaib, whose parents were Palestinian refugees, is a particularly outspoken advocate of BDS.
“I personally support the BDS movement,” Tlaib said before she was elected into office. “I want us to see that segregation and how that has really harmed us being able to achieve real peace in that region.”
BREAKING: @RashidaTlaib is the 2nd US Congressperson to publicly endorse the BDS movement for Palestinian rights! Thank you Rashida & @IlhanMN for standing w/ us on the right side of history. We’re part of a growing wave 4 freedom, justice & equality 4 all https://t.co/jkICrrTffz pic.twitter.com/if7zjmdqn8

Tlaib once rejected the opportunity to visit Israel when it was politically convenient for her to do so, choosing instead to visit the West Bank to promote the cause of Palestine. Now, she is acting as if it is a massive dishonor to be denied a visit to the country whose government she opposes so vehemently.
If our country is sincere about being an honest broker to peace than my sity deserves to be seen and heard just like any other human being. She deserves human dignity. Let’s try a different approach, shall we. https://t.co/x0pUlQvvJM

With the state of Israel rejecting the entry of Omar and Tlaib, it makes it clear that those socialist Congresswomen are doing damage to U.S. diplomacy while President Trump is bringing nations closer together.
Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan
Another victory for the war party.
Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.
The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.
The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.
“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.
“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.
“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”
The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.
“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.
“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.
The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
