Israel may deny Tlaib, Omar entry to country

Israel is to look over its decision to let the US freshmen congresswomen into the country later in August, reported Arutz Sheva.

Don Dermer, Israeli Ambassador in Washington, claimed two weeks ago that Israel would deny entry to the congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. The two Democratic Representatives are to visit Israel in August this year. Yet latest reports say that Israeli authorities are considering changing their decision and restricting Omar and Tlaib from entering the country as their visit may “damage Israel’s image.”

Channel 13, Israeli TV channel, reported Thursday that authorities may let Omar and Tlaib in, but limit their activities, however, the final decision is yet to be made.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, Evangelical leader and the President of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, said that Omar and Tlaib should be banned before their upcoming visit. 

Having collected tens of thousands of signatures, Cardoza-Moore said that «Israel has enough Hamas operatives inflaming tensions, they don’t need Omar and Tlaib. These women do not belong in the American Congress and should not be allowed to fan the flames of terror from within the Jewish State. In America we have amassed tens of thousands of signatures on our petition to have them ousted from the House, it would be wrong for Israel to self-impose this danger upon themselves, by giving them a free pass.” 

“They have actively and openly fundraised for American subsidiaries of Hamas and pose a real threat to freedom in America and Israel. Omar and Tlaib are bent on Israel’s destruction; allowing them to use the Holy Land as a propaganda tool for Hamas would be a huge mistake,» she added.
