I ‘m sure Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar’s travel itinerary helped Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to decide to bar them from Israel.
Harry Khachatrian: According to their own itinerary, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib chose to refer to Israel as “Palestine.” Their trip there was little more than a self-indulgent ploy to delegitimize and malign the Jewish State from within its borders.
Prime Minister Netanyahu called out this attack in his statement explaining why they were both denied entry into Israel.

Bibi was absolutely right about this. You do not let in two people intent on destroying your country.
They don’t represent the USA. Never have never will!

This is actually quite shocking and an obvious insult to Israel.
No thank you, you’re not welcome is the right decision.

Spot on – total frauds & total embarrassment to their country(USA). Entire trip was a propaganda tour. Shame on @chuckschumer & @SpeakerPelosi for not getting these embarrassments in order. Took on vacation instead!

Good for Israel to stand up to this assault on their existence. And shame on us for electing people like this to Congress.

America does recognize the state of Israel NOT Palestine….so their Itinerary shows that they were not to do the work of America but of their own ……..Good for Israel for denying them entry….it would only turn out bad for America!!!

Earlier today I criticized Israel for blocking entry of haters @ilhan and @RashidaTlaib .But after seeing that they don’t even extend the basic courtesy of calling Israel by its rightful name, forget it.They don’t deserve entry into the only functioning democracy in mid-east.

Let them go to Palestine then. They can visit Gaza.
