Israel to ban congresswomen Tlaib & Omar

From Jerusalem Post.

Israel will not allow US Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota)  and Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) into the country because of their vocal BDS advocacy, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday.

Netanyahu issued a statement saying that no country in the world respects the US Congress more than Israel, but that Isaeli law prohibits entry to those calling for a boycott of the country. He said that other countries as well – including the US – bar entry to those who are perceived to want to harm them.He said that Israel is a “vibrant and free democracy” that is open to all criticism, with the exception of a call for boycotts.

“Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are leading activists in promoting boycott legislation against Israel in the US Congress,” Netanyahu said.
