Last week the Israeli government told U.S. congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar that they would not be allowed into Israel.
The reason was simple: Omar and Tlaib are anti-Israel, and have called for boycotts against the country. To make things worse, they have shown sympathy towards those who wish to destroy the state of Israel. All of these seem like legitimate reasons to prevent a foreign politician from entering your country.
Of course, the media has decided to spin this story to make it about Trump, but we know better. We know that when MSM zigs, we have to zag.

Reps. Omar and Tlaib were set to go to Israel, when their government said “not so fast.” Now, were these women going to meet with Israeli officials? Of course not! They were going to hang out at the West Bank, and take a bunch of pictures crying a la AOC at the border.
And because these people are children, Tlaib felt the need to add that she was going to see her grammy. That pulls at the heart, doesn’t it? This woman just wanted to see her poor old grandmother…
Well, apparently Israel has a heart, and decided that Tlaib would be allowed to visit the grandmother she claims to love so much. However, something must have changed. For some reason, Tlaib no longer had any interest in visiting gam-gam. Could it be that she was only interested in political theatre?
Leftists want you to believe that Donald Trump is the reason Israel made this decision. How they come to that conclusion is beyond me, because it’s not hard to find proof of these women condemning Israel. Then again, these people think EVERYTHING is Trump’s fault.
Here’s the truth: these women are playing a game. They represent the people of their districts in Michigan and Minnesota (apparently really freaking stupid districts). Tlaib isn’t even on the foreign affairs committee, so what was she going over there for anyway? Does Detroit have some new Jewish car plant being built?
WE KNOW WHY THEY WERE GOING
“The Squad” exists to annoy. They don’t serve an actual purpose that could be of benefit to a useful person. Instead, they focus on being loud, “clapping back” on twitter, and trying to paint themselves as victims at every turn. If you voted for any of these people, you have to ask yourself “have their actions benefitted me at all?” From the outside view, that answer is no.
No, while Detroit falls into the abyss, their congressperson is out there making sure we focus on Israel.
At this point I don’t know why they go on television looking for sympathy. Their base is going to cry. Sensible Americans are going to say “yeah, you probably shouldn’t support terrorists“, and we all move on.
