An Israeli NGO has filed a petition to have US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar barred from entering the country when she arrives for an upcoming tour because she supports boycotts of Israel.
Under a controversial law that Israel enacted in 2017, the state can prohibit any foreigner from entering the country who “knowingly issues a public call for boycotting Israel.” But it can also issue waivers for visiting politicians or government officials out of diplomatic concerns.
NGO also cited a recent tweet by US President Donald Trump calling on Omar and Tlaib to apologize to Israel, the White House and the American people due to their “horrible statements.”
That was part of a days-long attack by Trump on four Democrat congresswomen of color in which he also told them to “go back” to where they came from, and accused them of hating Israel.
Liberal US Jews said the president was trying to “weaponize” Israel to defend his racists tweets.
We need to do a test. Anybody that wants to come here from Muslim lands need to stand there and eat bacon and swallow it while we watch to prove that they can be integrated with our laws and values.
Those that refuse are proving they want into America to fundamentally change America Easier way actually would be to deport every single Muslim from America and slam the door shut behind them.
Enough of Omar’s anti semetic comments against Israel.
