Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu officially announced on Thursday that US Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar will not be allowed to enter Israel due to their vocal support of the BDS movement.

In a statement Netanyahu claimed that the US lawmakers were planning a trip “which its sole purpose is to strengthen the boycott and de-legitimize Israel.”

The decision to ban the two lawmakers from entering Israel, made by Interior Minister Areyeh Deri, was first reported by Hebrew-language broadcaster Channel 12.

As final deliberations were being made on the matter, US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to encourage the Israeli government not to back down.

“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit,” Trump posted to Twitter earlier on Thursday. “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!”

Both Omar and Tlaib, first-term Democrats who have sparked controversy for their comments on Israel which some have deemed anti-Semitic, have backed the BDS movement.

The decision was formally announced shortly after President Donald Trump posted a comment to Twitter urging Israel not to allow the two lawmakers in, claiming the two “hate Israel and all Jewish people”.

“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit,” Trump tweeted. “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!”

  1. Thank you Mr. Deri and Mr. Netanyahu. Thank you for not being pacifists. Thank you for not twisting yourselves into pretzels to satisfy the BBC. I was a little surprised when Mr. Dermer said the 2 female dogs were “welcome” to come to Israel. Thank G-d his decision was overturned. So the NY Times will go nuts. Big deal!
    Now of course, Nadler, Engel, & Schiff are silent like little lemechals. They would never never criticize a fellow democrat. Never.

  2. Go Trump Go

  3. AND THEY ALSO HATE OUR SYSTEM OF GOV’T, WANT TO TURN OUR GOVT INTO COMMUNIST RULE, INSTITUTE MUSLIM SHARIA LAW ETC ETC

  4. To Whom It May Concern

    I do not care if those US Congresspeople are admitted or not admitted in the State of Israel. Either way they are [I do not speak up my mind, in deference to jurisdictions who do not hold by the First Amendment] and they remain themselves.

    Good luck to those, including US constituents, who have to deal with them.
