01) Rashida Tlaib Makes POWERFUL Plea To Israel


“Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar held a powerful and emotional press conference, to discuss their dispute with the Israeli government.

Standing side by side, Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar forcefully denounced the controversial decision by the Israeli government to deny them entry into the country, casting the travel restrictions as part of a broader effort to suppress voices of dissent against the treatment of Palestinians in occupied and disputed territories.

“Netanyahu’s decision to deny us entry might be unprecedented for members of Congress,” Omar said during a press conference on Monday, referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “But it is the policy of his government when it comes to Palestinians. This is the policy of his government when it comes to anyone who holds views that threaten the occupation.

    Nobody has censored these people. They simply aren’t allowed to vacation where they want. Israel is a sovereign country, and is not obligated to let in showboaters and crybullies.

    I will certainly support a democratic state over a terrorist religious organization.

      I think the bigger point, is that Trump…I don’t know if “instigated” is the correct word…but he had some kind of influence in this.

      There’s something really wrong about that.

      If Israel needs billions of dollars in aid to get by…I genuinely question it’s true “sovereignty”.

      If we believe biblical accounts…this is an ancient war, rooted in Israel’s war of genocide and land conquer.

      I don’t know everything about everything going on there…but there is a lot of inhumanity going on…and we are subsidizing it.

      I think, the U.S. public and politicians have a right to know what is going on, and to say something about it if they are troubled by it.
