Shurat HaDin NGO Asks Court To Block Rep. Omar From Entering Israel

7

Israeli NGO Shurat HaDin filed a petition to an Israeli court this week seeking to block Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from visiting the country.

Omar has made several vocal anti-Semitic comments and recently introduced a pro-BDS resolution in the House. She has also accused American Jews of dual loyalty to Israel.

A 2017 Israeli law allows the state to block foreigners that promote BDS from entering the country. The motion seeks to force Interior Minister Aryeh Deri to bar Omar from entering.

However, it is unclear how effective the petition will be since Israel’s Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer already said that Israel will not prevent Omar and fellow congresswoman, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who also supports BDS, from visiting later this month.

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, Shuran HaDin’s founder and chairwoman, said that it is hypocritical that Israel asks students in the U.S. to stand up to BDS activists, but is not serving as a “role model” to bar BDS supporters from entering the country.

“Israel shouldn’t let others, including young students, fight this battle for it, and in contrast surrender to the phenomenon here in Israel due to the prestige and status of certain important BDS activists,” she said in a statement.

  1. this excuse for a woman will do everything she can to destroy israel, a policy that is evident by all her anti-israel, anti-semitic rants. but ישראל בתח בהשם it will never happen

  2. Dermer is wrong regarding this issue. I know he was probably pressured by the Manhattan Liberal, Jared Kushner, to let the 2 enemies in. This has been our sorry past. Always bending over backwards and capitulating to our sworn enemies who want us dead. Israel has proven time and again that they are their own worst enemy. One of the dumbest nations on earth.

  3. It would be disgraceful to all IDF and their families as well as all the citizens of Israel to allow the venomous Omar and he ilk to enter the country. Her statements are hurtful to the citizens of Israeland she she be barred entry. Mr. Dermer’s word is not the final word.
