When United States Congresswoman, Democrat Rashida Tlaib learned she won the election, she wrapped herself in a Palestinian flag to celebrate.
On the day she was sworn into office as a United States Congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib wore a traditional Palestinian dress and asked to be sworn in on a Quran. In her congressional office was a map with a sticky note attached that read “Palestine,” with an arrow pointing to a region the U.S. does not recognize as a nation.
Even for the casual observer, it’s been pretty clear since Tlaib won the election to become a United States Representative in Michigan, that she has very little interest in representing the Americans in her district.
Yesterday, Israel’s interior minister decided to bar anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar(D-MN) and the anti-Israel Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) from entering Israel, who had allegedly planned a trip to there.
As expected, Democrats and their allies in the media were outraged over the decision by Israel to disallow two of the most vocal advocates of BDS, (Boycott, Divestment Sanctions—a global effort to destroy Israel’s economy), from entering their country.
Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu responded, explaining their decision on Twitter. Here is a portion of his explanation, where he explains that Tlaib and Omar’s itinerary listed their destination as “Palestine” and not “Israel”:
Only a few days ago, we received their itinerary for their visit to Israel, which revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.
For instance: they listed the destination of their trip as Palestine and not Israel, and unlike all Democratic and Republican members of Congress who have visited Israel, they did not request to meet any Israeli officials, either from the government or the opposition.
Here’s a look at their itinerary, proving Prime Minister Netanyahu is correct:
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. pic.twitter.com/yjDEUeMayo

This morning, we reported that Israel’s interior minister changed his mind about barring the anti-Israel U.S. lawmaker and decided to grant Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib the opportunity to visit her grandmother in the West Bank on ‘humanitarian grounds.’ Tlaib pulled a fast one on Israel by refusing the invite that SHE HAD ASKED FOR IN A LETTER.
Tlaib previously wrote a letter vowing to respect any restrictions and not support a boycott of Israel if she could get a chance to see her grandmother:
“I will respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel during my visit.”
Tlaib tweeted out a photo of her grandmother saying that “the truth of what is happening to Palestinians is frightening.”
After the invitation from Israel, Tlaib suddenly changed her tune and said she would not visit her grandmother in the occupied West Bank:
“I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in.”
Interior Minister Aryeh Deri slammed Tlaib’s reversal:
“Her hatred for Israel overcomes her love for her grandmother.”
Today, Tlaib made a stunning statement on Twitter.
The far-left lawmaker with multiple friends with ties to terrorists tweeted about how when she won the election in 2016, ” it gave the Palestinian people hope,” not the citizens of Detroit who she was elected to represent, but the people living in a foreign nation that the United States doesn’t even recognize.
Along with her confession about wanting to become a United States lawmaker to help a foreign country, Tlaib also revealed what’s behind her palpable anger, saying, “I can’t allow the State of Israel to humiliate me,” labeling Israel’s policies as, “racist and oppressive.”
When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions. I can't allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me & use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive & racist policies. https://t.co/OYIwExV0ga

Conservative Dennis Williams nailed it with his response to Tlaib, saying:
It is very good you Tweeted this.
You have now finally admitted two things:
1. Your interest in Congress was for the cause of Palestine (not the United States)
2. You have contempt for Israel and seek to weaken our alliance
The cat is out the bag, we’ll vote accordingly.
Conservative comedian Tim Young reminded everyone of how Tlaib is actually a radical agitator, and not to be fooled by the, “I’m only here to pick figs with my granny!” b.s.
