It's been decided. Israel will not allow U.S. congressional representative Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib to enter the country. This is after Israeli ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer stated that they WOULD be allowed.

What changed is Donald Trump has let it be known he wants Israel to ban Omar and Tlaib from entering Israel. And Israel, obediently and subserviently, failing to act like an independent nation of integrity, bowed to malignant narcissist psychopath Trump's whim.

Now, the fact is that Israel passed a law that BDS supporters would not be allowed to enter Israel. But Israel has enforced that policy very unevenly. So, when Rep. Stenny Hoyer was in Israel recently, the Jerusalem Post article reports Hoyer said,

"Israel's confidence - as expressed by Mr. Dermer in having any member of Congress who wants to come to Israel, have the opportunity to come to Israel and have access and to see what all these members have seen and will see - is appropriate," And this was backed by Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy from California.

David Brinn, managing editor for the Jerusalem Post, writes,

" The decision ultimately made by the government Thursday to apparently ban the congresswomen from entering Israel is shortsighted and deeply flawed. A quashed trip is only going to further deepen the divide between Democrats and Israel moving moderate Democrats away from a positive view of the country and raise the specter that Israel is behaving in something less than a democratic fashion."

So now, Israel has not only embarassed Hoyer, but also McCarthy.

It all comes down to leadership. My criticism of Israel, as an American Jew, has been of their policies and actions. This latest decision will surely solidify most non-Orthodox American Jews' negative attitude towards Israel.

I hope that Stenny Hoyer and the Democrats in Congress hold to their support of Omar and Tlaib in the face of Israel, and, in solidarity, refust to go to Israel until any member of congress is allowed to go.

That is a highly unrealistic hope, given that congress has already passed a law that violates First Amendment, freedom of speech rights in its treatment of advocacy for BDS. But change doesn't happen without hope. It will be interesting to see just how congressional leadership does handle it.

For starters, I just received this press release from Rep. Gerald Nadler, who represents the very Jewish New York's 10th Congressional District, which includes parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn:

""It is utterly egregious for the Israeli government to deny entry to two sitting members of the United States Congress. The close relationship enjoyed by the United States and Israel should extend to all its government representatives, regardless of their views on specific issues or policies. This decision undermines the ability for our two allied countries to have the frank, open and, at times, difficult discussions that we must have in order to ensure Israel remains a secure and democratic nation.

"I strongly condemn this decision and urge the Israeli government to allow entry to these Congresswomen and welcome them in the respectful, dignified manner to which they are entitled as official representatives of the United States."

"Banning U.S. Congress members is yet another new low as this country abandons all but the pretenses of democracy," tweeted journalist Glenn Greenwald, noting the decision was made in part due to the urging of President Donald Trump. "Ilhan Omar," Trump had thundered, "has a history of launching vicious anti-Semitic screeds!"

I have been feeling my sarcasm lately. It is precious to me and I want to take care not to misplace a single drop. Visiting Grandma is ok; I don't know about the rest of the crappola being slung around.

I like the word nyet. Has a touch of strength, eh?

The apartheid state of Israel is now being Semitic, for denying visas to Congressional members. I think Congress should stop all payments to Israel until its racist government sees the light.

It goes deeper than that. The NPT bans sending money to countries who have not signed it.

Yes! I have wondered about this conflict for years! It's a blatant breach of law, and it has been going on forever.

Is the U.S. just so "big" that the international community won't challenge anything going on now?

The ruling elites' law against us is the law of the jungle. We on the other hand are expected to live by another set of rules, getting slapped from one cheek to the other incessantly.

I suggest that we suspend abiding by the rules the elites have made for us and instead adopt their own law of the jungle and send out a slap here and a slap there, and a slap slap everywhere until we ultimately slap the little mofos lying, thieving and murderous asses right off the face of the planet, straight out into outer space.

This is the VERY WORST thing you can do. I can bet anyone $1,000 along with a dinner, that especially when dealing with contentious countries like Israel, walking a few paces in the shoes of locals, helps everyone change their GD minds.


Especially Omar and Tlaib more than anyone in Congress, need to visit that which they seem so cocksure of.


Say whatever you will about the necessary politics of a country, but at least go there and meet the people!


This is Trump merely ensuring and insuring his clear desire to continue to divide.


I've been reading a biography of Mussolini. I highly encourage everyone to read it. The parallels are stunning.

If the world were not so screwed up, EVERYone should all be able to visit and walk in the shoes of locals anywhere they'd like to go. YES! To meet the people...and walk the streets, taste the food and dance to the music.


Rulers neither enhance global relationships nor expand the lives of their own people. Instead people (serf) are shrunken into their own neighborhoods by fear, poverty and propaganda; always the constant propaganda.


Trump didn't start the divisiveness; he just bought the steroids. Now the end of the story doesn't look too promising.

"Malignant narcissist," yes. I would add "vindictive." But "Psychopath" is a bridge too far. As for BDS, it is indeed antisemitic in the same sly, subliminal way perfected years back by "Der Sturmer." Certainly, banning BDS is no more assault on our constitutional rights than than restricting racism and hate speech. Editorials like this ensure Trump's reelection and more Trumpeters to follow in the new century. As an unaccompanied 17-year old German immigrant who served 32 years in the US military and took full advantage of every benefit offered by the GI Bill along with the country's extraordinary tolerance and generosity, I'd just as soon send The Squad over a cliff with their hair on fire. They and their constituents offer not simply a contrasting point of view, they are the enemy.

"As for BDS, it is indeed antisemitic..."

What does boycotting against a government's foreign policy have to do with religious prejudice?? This "anti-Semitic" argument is a complete strawman, used to deflect the focus away from the reprehensible activities of a government that doesn't even represent the average Jew.

I just stopped reading your comment at that point.

Though I do not support the "Squad," and the policies they seek to implement; I have been to east Africa (Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Egypt, Jordan and Israel. Having been treated as a guest, with only Israel wrongly assuming my brief stay their was not as a tourist, but a hooligan there to stir up trouble. Even using my mother's maiden name as a right to bring up a time and place in Germany when she was a child and both of us not responsible for what happened to the airport security's guards grandmother! Because of my saying I came across the King Hussein Bridge, not the Ben Gurion Bridge when entering APARTHEID Israel!


Apparently you do not, have not really appreciated the "Freedoms/Rights" all American's were granted until the PNAC 9/11 took most of them away, but your stated opinion runs contrary to what this country stands for. Like most mentally-challenged tRumptard's, and I'm not assuming you are one, but their Socialist POTUS King Con Don wants to blame others for the country's self created problems.


One can support the BDS movement, Palestinian rights/of return to a homeland with sharing Jerusalem as its capitol, not support the "Greater Israel" agenda; and not be an anti-Semite!

Equivocation again. We need more squads. As far as anti-semitic goes, the zionist entity that controls the state of Israel kills more semites in Palestine than any other entity in the world, except perhaps the elites US military, NATO and House of Saud. The international community seems paralyzed to uphold its own laws and creeds of human rights. Perhaps the zionist entity will begin to hold itself accountable? Nyet.

"This latest decision will surely solidify most non-Orthodox American Jews' negative attitude towards Israel."

Not in the least. It simply confirms it.

But also greatly CEMENTS my bonds with MANY genuinely Jewish friends.

THANKS for this post Rob Kall.

Thanks for good and valid comments from members.

One of the representatives was hoping to visit her grandmother also. The grandmother has lived in Palestine her entire life, before Israel was created by UK/USA powers.

Antisemitism has only lost its sting for those who are deaf and blind to history. Epithets (Nazi, racist et al) attempt to silence freedom of thought that does not conform to the critic's belief, replacing "patriotism" as the last refuge of the American coward.

The two Congresswomen have no intention of meeting "the people." They refuse to meet with Israeli leadership, intent on heading straight for the Palestinian Pale to foment hate and discontent, spiced with antiAmerican overtures.

South Africa has nuclear weapons and gets aid from the United States. Why be selective? Such weaponry gives Israel a modicum of protection from neighbors and a faith that wants to erase it.

Agree. Trump looks and poses are eerily like the late Italian dictator.

My use of an old expression of vivid dislike is not meant literally. Would I really push them over a cliff with their hair on fire? Oh, probably not.

Wonder what "genuinely Jewish friends" means.

We disagree and I am not the only one.

No one is blind to history, especially on this site.

Why recent atrocities in Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq to name a few are ignored but somethings which happened over 70 years ago are shoved on people who had NOTHING to do with it 24/7 by UK/USA media?

In the majority of cases, antisemitism has been used to silence people.

The people who are criticizing Nazi's, are following their playbook (methods) to suffocate other natives and take their lands.

Palestinians and their endless lousy leadership, Their revanchism. Their inability to do anything for themselves except attack school children, Olympians, old geezers in wheel chairs, hijack passenger aircraft. Deceive. Blind and deaf and obtuse beyond my capacity to grasp. By Mr. Ala's logic, Schleswig-Holstein goes back to Denmark, Russia and Poland respectively return East Prussia and Silesia to Germany. Italy gives back the bit of Tyrol they took. Incompetence and haplessness characterize Palestinians in their single-minded refusal to compromise or pull themselves together. For Jews and the rest of the Judeo-Christian world this fragment of geography has been theirs for millennia.

I admit to a perverse fascination with reading such irrationalization. And O, the spectacle, not just to read it, but to watch it live! Gaping, gasping at people absorbed in their inability to comprehend the spirit of "compromise" needed to stand by and watch one's home bulldozed, for the crime of being a member of the Un-Chosen People.... Ah! Oh! Such raw humanity! A slow-motion flaming Nascar pileup cannot match the strange, thrilling, stomach-churning effect of witnessing such willful and shameless depravity in the face of helplessness, powerlessness, and despair!

My favorite all-time number-one re-play is listening to the timeless words of Golda Meir, the kindly Grandma of the State of Israel: "I hate the Palestinians because they force us to kill their children!" Who has ever expressed the dilemma better? Eric, rise yourself and give us more! Eric!

I always get a kick out of these people who express so much hatred toward certain Semites, while pronouncing everyone else (who are simply trying to defend them) as "anti-Semites". The ignorance has no bounds.

Regretfully many are not only blind but short of attention span and downright forgetful. Then there are some such as I who are ignorant...but I do have feelings and a sense of understanding what dignity and respect for others mean...except for the mofos. You know who they are. They are incredibly well organized and are bribing the masses by the millions.

Fair game to criticize Nazis, but NOT BEFORE listening to the world's greatist historian on the topic and then libelling and sliming him insanely.

My video post with more comments than any other OEN post I know of had it's video ripped down. PCR's post on the same guy "disappeared" in about half a day due to "reader complaints," according to Rob.

Mr Geery, who is devoted to putting g 'truth' out there, appears unable to decipher what real anti-semitism sounds like, and his many 'genuine' (huh) Jewish friends do not provide insight. Like all the jews in my family and my community, I despise Bibi, and abhor the policies that promote the settlements and the dreadful treatment of Palestinians. One does not have to be a 'Zionist' to be a 'genuine' Jew, but all secular jews that I know and many of the orthodox who live in Monsey which abuts my village, have a crystal clear grasp of anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Let's get the historical facts about WWII out in the open and not the revisionist history you are taught in the victorious allies over the evil Nazi's. Hitler was a British brainwashed spy used for the future creation of Israel, along with the agenda of regulating population control, etc.


West countries financiers, like the Bu$h, Ford, Rockefeller family's were heavily invested in Nazi Germany way past the deadline imposed to cease these financial transactions. Ford motors/trucks, IBM and Dupont were some of the corporate names who provided the technologies that drove the Nazi regime.


Western nations remorse for its roles in facilitating the rise of Nazism, was their reason for displacing the Palestinian's from their homes/lands. The "Greater Israel" agenda has been in-the-works long before the creation of Israel was considered. Israel's policy of its slow expulsion of Palestinian's from their homes and lands and no right of return is Semitic! The occupied territories are no different than the Jewish ghettos the Nazi's kept its deplorable s contained in.


Israel is NOT an ally of the USA, with the attack upon the USS Liberty, and the questionable involvement of Israel in the facilitating of the PNAC 9/11 needs more investigating as a couple of examples. The creation of ISIS = Israel State Intelligence Service, to continue the farce War of Terror against former Reagan "Freedom Fighter's" now relabeled "Terrorist's," to to sew the roots of the "Greater Israel" project is another. Where US supplied weapons were once again used to kill US soldiers.


It's not only your foolishly stating to the world your intentions of what should happen to the "Squad." You have NOT let go of past demonic emotions that should have been when you immigrated to the USA. Unbeknownst to you and the Socialist POTUS tRump, diversity is what created this country and made it "Great!"

well...there was slavery as David William Pear softly reminds us...and once the fertility of the soil waned there were the originals land, free for the taking. Imagine the cost to reimburse for that theft. In an odd way even the promise of 40 acres was superfluous. Whose land was being given away?

Then there are reparations...dear lord. When will humans ever come to grips about why they are here in the first place? It is love.

Except for the mofog ruling elites...sorry. They gotta go, then I can love. While they are here...NO love. Mofos

...they still here? Damn.

Thanks all, for getting an old geezer with a heart condition through another sleepless night. All that welcome distraction of views stoutly expressed and fiercely defended. No one got hurt. I'd be glad to stand everyone a beer (or cuppa tea in your case, Mr. Ala). OpEd News has many virtues, an opportunity to vent near the top. Now, someone said something about a couch. Yes! It's morning. Where is that couch, exactly?

I am so exhausted from the endless rhetoric and politics.. As you pointed out: "For Jews and the rest of the Judeo-Christian world this fragment of geography has been theirs for millennia." And the tribal conflicts that rend the people have been there, too. Sad!

Making this more appalling is Trump's backing Israel in their decision. It just puts an exclamation point on how much he cares for United States citizens, let alone members of Congress.

Trump and every politician who kisses the ar*e of Israel need to go. This shows those politicians who see Israel as a better way to get elected than to go to their districts discovering how they could help their constituents. Voters, take note!!
