Anti-semitic Democrat Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib just proved (again) her efforts to visit Israel were made in bad faith.
Yesterday after the Israeli government denied Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Tlaib from entering the country due to their advocacy for the BDS movement, Tlaib was offered a humanitarian exception to visit her grandmother.
First, Tlaib framed the situation as an outright ban:
Netanyahu himself said you are welcome to apply for a humanitarian visa to visit your family, you lying hack https://t.co/UfFVssMXe2— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) August 15, 2019
Then, she begged to see her grandmother and argued it may be her last chance.
I approved her request as a gesture of goodwill on a humanitarian basis, but it was just a provocative request, aimed at bashing the State of Israel. Apparently her hate for Israel overcomes her love for her grandmother.@realDonaldTrump @RashidaTlaib— ???? ????? ???? (@ariyederi) August 16, 2019
After getting approval, a gesture of goodwill and tolerance from Israel, Tlaib rejected the opportunity to visit her family.
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— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) August 16, 2019
As I've already written, the trip to Israel, which was listed as "Palestine" on the itinerary, was a malicious setup from the beginning. Tlaib and Omar vindictively put Israeli officials in a lose-lose situation. They are calculated provocateurs.
Correct. Because she’s a provocateur. https://t.co/2IjOxxktCu— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) August 16, 2019
