Well, this was predictable. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) came to the defense of her terrorist-sympathizing colleagues known for peddling anti-Semitic tropes today. The call was made and the anti-Semitism defense league was assembled. Why? Well, as Katie noted, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu barred Reps. Rashida Talib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering the country and rightfully so. Both women support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, which is viciously anti-Israel. And by vicious, I mean, these clowns are pushing for the destruction of the Jewish state:

The Israeli government announced Thursday morning pro-BDS movement and anti-Semitic Democrat lawmakers Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib will not be allowed to enter the country. The two were scheduled to land in Tel Aviv on Friday. Tlaib has been informed she can apply for a humanitarian visa if she would like to visit her Palestinian family. Israel has a long-standing policy to block BDS supporters from entering the country.

AOC then accused Netanyahu of supporting a message that only some Americans are welcome (via The Hill):

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tore into Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after he announced he would not permit Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) entry for an upcoming trip to Israel and the Palestinian territories. 

“[Members of Congress] are frequently asked to visit Israel to ‘see things for ourselves,’” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “But Netanyahu choosing to ban the only 2 Muslim women in Congress from entering tells the US that only *some* Americans are welcome to Israel, not all.”

[…]

Netanyahu defended the decision to deny entry to the two congresswomen, saying the move is in line with a new law that would prevent any supporter of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement against Israel from visiting the country. 

“The two-member congressional visitation plan shows that their intent is to hurt Israel and increase its unrest against it,” Netanyahu said in a statement. 

Both congresswomen voted against a nonbinding resolution last month condemning the so-called BDS movement.

Yes, they did. Oh, and Omar compared BDS to the Boston Tea Party. Tlaib equated the BDS movement’s activities against Israel as akin to a boycott on the Nazi Party. Omar has given the House Democratic leadership serial heartburn for peddling anti-Jewish remarks. She invoked the dual loyalty smear against those who support Israel. Oh, and these women reportedly didn’t even refer to Israel on their itinerary. They called it “Palestine.” So not only are they historically illiterate, they’re making up countries as well. Palestine does not exist.  And yes, the Left will foam at the mouth over this. Let them.

Rep. Omar reportedly hosted secret fundraisers for groups with terror ties. Tlaib once hosted an event for an anti-Israel activist who endorsed terrorism. Yeah, I don't see why this gruesome twosome was barred from entering Israel (sarc.).
