Tlaib Now Refusing to Go to Israel Because It's Too 'Humiliating'

UPDATE: Israel's Interior Minister Aryeh Deri says it's clear this was all a well orchestrated stunt by Rep. Tlaib.


Israel reversed its decision on Friday and will allow Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to enter the country to visit her grandmother. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), however, is still banned.

In her humanitarian request, Tlaib had urged Interior Minister Aryeh Deri to allow her entry so she could visit her 90-year-old grandmother because it may be her "last opportunity" to see her.

Yet, on Friday, after the government granted her request, Tlaib argued it's just too "humiliating" now to take the trip.

Israel decided to ban Tlaib and Omar from the country because of their prominent support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which encourages the boycott of Israeli goods and services. It has been a longstanding policy of Israel to bar individuals who support the campaign from the country, which the congresswomen no doubt knew.
