Following pressure from President Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has backtracked on his decision to allow Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) to enter the country and is barring the congresswomen over their support for the BDS movement.
“Israel has decided — we won’t enable the members of Congress to enter the country. We won’t allow those who deny our right to exist in this world to enter Israel. In principle this is a very justified decision.”
— Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely
It should be pointed out emphatically that neither congresswoman ever denied Israel’s right to exist!
