The nations of the earth are shaking angry fists at us because we have denied entry to two blatantly anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian, anti-Jews, Democratic party members of the House of Representatives in the American Congress.
Our esteemed Chief Editor has written a lengthy article in defense of the two Congresswomen. I take an opposite side. They are NOT WANTED !
Their itinerary excluded almost all of the State of Israel with the exception of East Jerusalem. They had no intentions of meeting with Jews, of visiting Yad Vashem Holocaust Center, and refused to meet with any members of the Israeli government or opposition.
They were clearly coming to see how their brother and sister Muslims are “mistreated” under Israeli “occupation”. From East Jerusalem their visit would be entirely in Arab Muslim cities, Bethlehem, Hebron, and Ramallah.
Whatever they could see while glancing in our capital city they would respond with negative remarks.
They see absolutely nothing good in Israel and they pray for our disappearance. They vote against more American aid to Israel. In fact, the very name “ISRAEL” sticks in their throats. They are NOT WANTED here!
There was no violation of diplomatic courtesy. Israeli law permits refusal of entry to any activist supporting the BDS boycott disease and to those who denounce the existence of the Jewish State.
What would have been accomplished had they been permitted to enter at Ben-Gurion International Airport? I doubt that they would have taken lodgings in the King David hotel which is in the center of Jewish Jerusalem. They would have preferred an Arab hotel near the Jaffa Gate. They would of course never think for a second to walk to the Western Wall Plaza to see how Jews pray for their city and country.
Omar and Tlaib speak with poisonous tongues and write with poisonous pens. And everything they speak and write about us is 100% negative and lies. Would a visit to Jewish Israel have changed their opinions?
My answer is absolutely not. Their hatred of us as Jews is despicable. Not only is their venom spewed at Israel and Israeli Jews. It is hurled at Jews anywhere in the world. The medieval blood libels of Christians has now been adopted by Muslims.
It is our right as a sovereign nation to accept or to reject individuals whose visit is meant to be a weapon against us.
Prime Minister Netanyahu did the right thing. He simply said in two English words: NOT WANTED !
Omar and Tlaib could have flown directly to Amman, Jordan and could have visited Palestinian refugees in their camps. If their concern was purely for the well-being of fellow Muslims they could have found it there.
I wait eagerly to read their poisoned responses to the rejection of Israel to those seeking our destruction.
They are a disgrace to the Democratic party and are two cancers embedded in the halls of American legislation.
I was pleasantly surprised to read that the American President, Donald Trump, fully supported Israel’s decision to bar them from entry.
People who come with good intentions to see the beauty of our country and its mixed multitude of citizens will always be accorded a warm and friendly welcome.
But the Omars and Tlaibs of the world who hate us cannot ever be allowed to enter.
They are simply NOT WANTED!
