Muslim lawmakers blasted for hatred of Israel

Muslim Congresswomen Omar and TlaibA pro-Israel advocate is praising the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for banning radical congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the Jewish state.

Tlaib, meanwhile, is being accused of playing politics with the congressional trip after Israel granted her request for a personal visit --- then turned down the compromise due to the “oppressive” restrictions imposed by Israel.

What restrictions? Not to advocate for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.  

Both congresswomen pose an “existential threat” to the nation of Israel and its people, says Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations.

anti-Israel BDS protestersOmar and Tlaib have angered Cardoza-Moore and many other Israel allies for their outspoken hostility, which most recently includes pushing the BDS movement in Congress, a push that failed to find support even among other Democrats.

Cardoza-Moore tells OneNewsNow that she commends Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, for taking the “bold stance” of denying them entry.

Netanyahu himself pointed out that their travel plans referred to a trip to "Palestine," not Israel, and the congresswomen were not meeting with Israeli officials --- not even one --- during their stay.

After she was denied entry, Tlaib requested to visit her Palestinian grandmother, a request that was granted by the Interior Ministry -- then refused by the first-term congresswoman.

"Apparently her hate for Israel overcomes her love for her grandmother," Interior Minister Aryeh Deri commented via Twitter. 

Cardoza-Moore, who made her comments to OneNewsNow before Tlaib asked Israel to reconsider its ban, says Omar and Tlaib do not represent America's values. 

"Seventy percent of the American people support the state of Israel,” she says, "and we witnessed that this week with the number of members of Congress, and Senate Republicans and Democrats, who showed up en mass in Israel to convey that support."

Omar, Tlaib called Israel 'Palestine' in itinerary

Refusing to acknowledge Israel as their destination before the Jewish State banned their visit, Muslim Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) referred to the nation instead as “Palestine” in their travel itinerary.

When Israel relented and permitted Tlaib to visit family in the Palestinian territory for humanitarian reasons, the anti-Semitic lawmaker then changed her mind and refused, reportedly letting her “hate for Israel” overcome her “love for her grandmother.”

Before their plans to visit the Holy Land were announced, Israel had already instituted a policy banning members and supporters of the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement – to which both Omar and Tlaib belong – because of its declared anti-Semitic agenda geared to ultimately wipe the State of Israel off the face of the Earth.
