    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., on Thursday accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of implementing his own “Muslim ban” after his government said it would block her and another Democratic congresswoman from entering Israel.

    Both Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., the other lawmaker barred by Israel, are Muslim. They are also outspoken critics of Israel and have expressed support for boycotts of the country. In a tweet, Tlaib ripped the decision as "a sign of weakness."

    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.

    A close colleague of Omar and Tlaib -- New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- tweeted that Netanyahu’s "discriminatory decision" to ban members of Congress from Israel "harms" diplomacy. She said she would not visit Israel "until all members of Congress are allowed."

    Though 2: AOC won't go to Israel? Like they really give a shit, AOC.

    she is right again. look at how netanyahu is trump's little bitch just like trump is putin's little bitch. those two little bitches deserve each other. if you do not like what someone says, either send them back to their own country or ban them...yeah, that's the ticket!! that's democracy in action! that is a real profile in courage!! that is showing respect for free speech!!

    this is so sad and pathetic and anti-american that even the pro-israeli PAC that both these ladies have attacked for being nothing but Israeli lapdogs have spoken out against it...now there is something all of us can like- coming to the free speech rights of those who have spoken out against you!! kudos to these guys. they got it right.

    • “We also believe every member of Congress should be able to visit and experience our democratic ally Israel firsthand,” the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) wrote in a statement.
    “We disagree with Reps. Omar and Tlaib’s support for the anti-Israel and anti-peace BDS movement, along with Rep. Tlaib’s calls for a one-state solution,” the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the most powerful pro-Israel lobbying group, wrote in a statement that referred to the boycott, divest and sanction movement against Israel’s occupation of Gaza and the West Bank. “We also believe every member of Congress should be able to visit and experience our democratic ally Israel firsthand.”

    Israel has the right to admit of deny anyone access to their country. They are completely in line when they deny these terrorism supporters from entering their country to try to cause problems.

    You Jew haters are all alike. And Netanyahu doesn't want Jew haters in his country. Simple as that.

    Look who the UK has banned .....

    Martha Stewart, Snoop Dogg, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Mike Tyson..... not to mention a whole host of conservatives.

    Doesn't seem odd to me that Israel would ban Omar and Tlaib.

    The ONLY reason Omar is in 116th Congress is due to Barry O transplanting 100,000 Muslims into Minnesota and the married to her brother while married to a different man and allowed to repay $3000 she owed in back taxes with a $500 fine is due to her being a member of 116th Congress...…..NO American citizen would have been given same deal...………….Omar hates America.

    I agree with AIPAC here. Israel lets Muslims in all the time ... besides the 1.5 million Muslim citizens they have there are regular guest workers as well as tourists, academics, etc. Israel was foolish and repressive to exclude these women but it did so because of their politics, not their religion.

    I also disagree with Bernie Sanders’s call to punish Israel for its policies by cutting off aid.
