‘TRUE’ to Her Word

In yesterday’s blog post, “Omar and Tlaib….NOT WANTED,” I expressed my reasons for agreeing with the original decision to ban them from entering Israel.

Then Tlaib wrote a passionate request letter seeking permission from The Minister of Interior, Aryeh Deri, to enter Israel in order that she might visit her 90 year-old grandmother, siti, in the West Bank. It would be a family reunion.

Upon receipt of her request, the Minister of the Interior informed her that she would be allowed to enter Israel on humanitarian grounds with only one condition…that she not preach boycott of Israel while she is here.

It seems that she wrote a promise not to discuss boycott or anything hostile to Israel.

And then, true to her word, she revoked her promise, refused to arrive in Israel, and called us a racist state.

As a wise person remarked, “She hates Israel more than she loves her grandmother,” and it appears to be the case. She hates us with every breath in her body. An American-born Palestinian who denounces Israel, who condemns us for the lies she is told, may not ever see her “siti” again. At age 90, the grandmother blasphemes Israel for putting a stumbling-block in Tlaib’s path, preventing her visit.

Through her rejection of the Interior Ministry’s permission to enter, she has again, as always, shown her “True” word. She is simply bitter, and finds nothing good to say of the Jewish State.

Now she is further equipped with more propaganda which she definitely will use in sessions of the House of Representatives. She will vote against, and encourage fellow lawmakers, to deny any requests from Israel for any reason or purpose.

Why did she not join with the 41 Democratic congressmen and congresswomen who recently visited our country, met with members of the government and the Knesset, met with opposition leaders and Palestinians and toured Israel, visited the holy places of Christians, Muslims and Jews, who returned to the USA with very favorable impressions?

As I wrote previously, she refused to join them because she insisted that she would not, under any circumstances, meet with Israeli leaders, those people who “persecute” her people. Her intentions from the outset was to have no contact with Israeli authorities and no wish to tour freely in Israel, the only exception being East Jerusalem and the Old City in “Palestine,” as she remarked.

A decent person who received approval to enter our country would have responded with a “thank you” and would have had the joy of being reunited with her grandmother and family. A decent person. Not a hostile Palestinian-Arab-American named Tlaib.

Her siti had been enthused when she learned that her granddaughter could visit. She planned on picking figs from her tree together with her American congresswoman granddaughter.

Now her dream and hope has faded into another dark cloud. It is doubtful that Tlaib will ever be able to visit her family in the West Bank, the fault being completely her own.

“True” to her word, Tlaib was showing her true colors. Bitter hatred of Jews. Bitter hatred of Zionists anywhere in the world. A woman who prays for the downfall and destruction of Israel, a name that she even hates to pronounce. For her, our country is her “Palestine” which we had stolen from her.

She refuses to recognize our origins dating more than 4,000 years ago when Abraham (Ibrahim) left Ur Kasdim in Mesopotamia and made his way to the land of Israel.

She does not recognize our ancient history, thousands of years before the prophet Mohammed was born. For her, the holiness of the land began only with the birth of the Islamic religion.

That she would not want to enter the Al Aqsa mosque and the mosque of Omar on the Temple Mount is an indication that her hatred of Israel where the mosques are located is greater than her love of Islam.

She is not coming. She is not visiting her family. She will not be worshiping in the mosques. She will remain in America spewing venom and lies in the legislative halls in Washington, DC.

“True” to her word, Tlaib is one of the despicable enemies who see only dark clouds, but who are blind to the glorious sunlight.
