On Thursday, Rep. Nancy Pelosi stated after Israel decided not to allow Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaibenter, their country as a congressional delegation, calling it a “sign of weakness” by Israel.
Israel enforced its laws against allowing BDS supporters into Israel. Made a humanitarian exception for Tlaib which she turned down. It was never about visiting family. It was about political statements. The question Pelosi should be answering is why Dem Reps are using taxpayer money on overseas trips when they have no justifiable job reason to be there.
Pelosi must have forgotten back in March 2019, when she said that Omar isn’t anti-Semitic, she didn’t understand the full weight of the words she used. She didn’t understand? Is she a child? This is a manifestation of the Left’s unconscious paternalism, its assumption that some groups cannot be held to the same standards to which others are held. The full retreat of Pelosi and the Democrat leadership, and failure to rebuke Omar is part of the ongoing normalization and mainstreaming of Omar’s antisemitism.
If I am continually going against my neighbor and pushing an agenda, I am sure my neighbor would eventually refuse to allow me to come over. It is not only human nature, but the right of my neighbor to be left in peace and not have to hear or deal with my rhetoric. Why is this any different? To receive respect, how about showing some.
Pelosi Statement on Israel’s Decision to Block Members of Congress from Entering the Country
August 15, 2019
San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Government of Israel announced its decision to prevent Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from entering the country:
“As one who loves Israel, I am deeply saddened by the news that Israel has decided to prevent Members of Congress from entering the country.
“Last month, Israeli Ambassador Dermer stated that, ‘Out of respect for the U.S. Congress and the great alliance between Israel and America, we would not deny entry to any Member of Congress into Israel.’ This is a sad reversal and is deeply disappointing. I pray that the Government of Israel will reverse that denial.
“Israel’s denial of entry to Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar is a sign of weakness, and beneath the dignity of the great State of Israel. The President’s statements about the Congresswomen are a sign of ignorance and disrespect, and beneath the dignity of the Office of the President.”
Their trip was sponsored by a hate group that supports Hamas and funds suicide bombers. Is Israel supposed to open their arms to that? Tlaib and Omar are deceitful liars; they lie about where they live, who they are married to, lied on applications to enter the US, lied on applications to run for public office, they will lie as long as it helps them promote radical Islam, their religion encourages them to do so.
Isn’t that funny, America has been withstanding the weakness of her and Schumer for over 30 years, yet Trump is the reason for all the issues in America. Truth be told, Pelosi and Schumer have been working to take this country down during the full time they have been in office.
You can call it weakness we call it strength. No one especially these two and Polisi nor the media nor the socialist democrats will change what’s right. The will of God is on their side.
The United States and Israel are two of the most peaceful nations currently run by two competent influential leaders. God Bless them!
