Matthew Brodsky: Tlaib, Omar don’t deserve sympathy for being barred from Israel – They deserve condemnation

Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s decision Friday to refuse to visit her grandmother on the West Bank unless she could use the trip to campaign for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement proves that the goal of her trip was to generate anti-Israel propaganda.

Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri tweeted that he granted the Michigan Democratic congresswoman permission to visit “her 90 year old grandmother” as a “gesture of goodwill on a humanitarian basis.”

But when Tlaib retracted her pledge to refrain from promoting the BDS movement while visiting her grandmother, Deri said on Twitter: “Apparently her hate for Israel overcomes her love for her grandmother.”
