We previously reported that Israel denied permission Democrats Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar to enter Israel based on the fact that the two Jew hating Democrats have voiced support for the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement. Under Israeli law, backers of the BDS movement can be denied entry to Israel.
Their mission was not one of peace but rather to spread hatred and divisiveness so as a result- they were told they weren’t welcome.
“Interior Minister Aryeh Deri decided on Friday to approve the entry of US Congresswoman Rashida Talib on a humanitarian visit of her 90-year-old grandmother,” a statement from Israel said.
“Congresswoman Talib sent a letter to Minister Deri tonight pledging to accept Israel’s demands, respecting the restrictions imposed on her during the visit, and promising not to promote boycotts against Israel during her visit.
“In light of this, and in accordance with his commitment yesterday, Minister Deri decided to allow her entry into Israel and expressed hope that her commitment and visit would indeed be for humanitarian purposes only,” it said.
The decision to allow Rep. Tlaib to visit her grandmother does not affect the status of Rep. Omar who is still banned.
But Fox News reports that Tlaib indicated Friday that she will not travel to the West Bank to visit family, despite getting permission hours before from Israel’s interior minister — following a diplomatic firestorm over the government’s earlier refusal to allow her and a colleague entry as part of a broader visit.
“I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice,” she tweeted.
Well, that shows how much she really cares about her grandmother.
She doesn’t give a crap about anything but bashing Jews and calling for boycotts.
She had her chance but her hatred for Israel is stronger than her ‘love’ for her grandmother.
What a sick pos.
From Fox News:
Israel’s interior minister tore into U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib on Friday for abruptly canceling plans to visit family in the West Bank after the government granted permission for the trip in a bid to smooth over a diplomatic firestorm.
“Apparently her hate for Israel overcomes her love for her grandmother,” Aryeh Deri tweeted.
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

“She asked specifically for permission to visit her grandmother, saying she won’t promote boycotts,” The Jerusalem Post contributing editor Lahav Harkov said.
“Then, after Israel said yes, she says she won’t visit if she can’t promote boycotts. So, it was just a stunt to prolong the news cycle of attacking Israel. Never mind, grandma.”
“No one said Tlaib can’t express her opinions about Israel. The law is specific – it’s about boycotts. And she knows that, she only mentioned not promoting boycotts in the letter to Deri,” she said.
“It’s funny, I was really sure the grandmother thing was genuine. See this tweet from an hour ago. I just assume people genuinely honor their grandparents!
“Using your 90 year old grandmother and her frailty for political gain is beyond cynical,” the editor said in a tweet.
