Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyau will decide soon whether US congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib will be allowed to enter Israel and what they refer to as the “West Bank” next month.
On Wednesday, Omar said that she and Tlaib were planning to visit Israel and the “West Bank” in “a few weeks.”
Both Omar and Tlaib harbor virulent anti-Israel sentiment as demonstrated by their support for BDS – the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. Their planned trip could be cancelled by Jerusalem due to their support for BDS.
We trust that PM Netanyahu will do the right thing and stay consistent with Israel’s policy of not allowing BDS supporters to enter Israel.
