AOC Still SHOCKED Netanyahu ‘Banned Two U.S. Sitting Members of Congress From Coming to Israel’
Back in 2019, when Donald Trump was still in the White House, Israel barred Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country:
Israel’s government on Thursday barred Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country as part of a landmark visit, in a move that quickly set off a political firestorm in Washington.
The controversial decision by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came despite pleas from top lawmakers in both parties to allow the delegation to make its trip. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) denounced the decision, saying she was “deeply saddened” by the move after the Israeli ambassador announced last month that the two lawmakers would be allowed to visit.
Fast forward to October of 2023 after a horrific Hamas terrorist attack in Israel, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still can’t believe those two members of Congress are barred from entering that country even after all they’ve said recently:
Rep. @AOC: “I found it shocking when … when PM Netanyahu banned two U.S. sitting members of Congress from coming to Israel, Reps. Rashida Tlaib & Ilhan Omar … my own colleagues did not seem to say or do much of anything. That should be an affront to our entire gov’t & country” pic.twitter.com/y8FGfbhGCP

Maybe if they tried not enabling and supporting terrorists. They should try that.

Banning them looks even better in retrospect. https://t.co/qLxMeLPYIM

Yes, it certainly does.
We should also be banning people from coming here who think we’re “evil” and side with our enemies. Seems like common sense. https://t.co/2AqMiUy5is

It’s just common sense, which is why the Biden administration would never even consider the suggestion.
They’ve openly supported the butchering of innocent Israeli civilians even justifying it and falsely accused Isreal, publicly, of war crimes.

AOC: Why won’t Netanyahu roll out the welcome wagon for them now?
It’s a total mystery:
Israel just bombed the Baptist Hospital killing 500 Palestinians (doctors, children, patients) just like that. @POTUS this is what happens when you refuse to facilitate a ceasefire & help de-escalate.
Your war and destruction only approach has opened my eyes and many… https://t.co/mZYoifT7bj

That’s the lie that Rep. Tlaib refuses to delete.
