Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
More on Tlaib and Omar’s Canceled Trip The fallout from Israel’s decision to bar entry to Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) continued this week. The two hosted a press conference in Minnesota on Monday in which they repeatedly lied about their planned trip and about Israel. They talked about the “occupation” and called for cutting off military aid to Israel.
The mainstream media noted Tlaib’s tears at the press conference when she said that, “As a young girl visiting Palestine to see my grandparents and extended family I watched as my mother had to go through dehumanizing checkpoints,” but no one asked her about the hundreds of Israelis who were killed in terrorist attacks before those checkpoints were erected.
Few media outlets reported on the congresswomen’s planned itinerary to “Palestine”, not Israel, nor on the group that was to be their host, Miftah. Miftah published a blood libel article that accused “the Jews [of using] the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover.” It also published a neo-Nazi treatise against Jewish “control” of the media and paid tribute to suicide bombers who killed Israelis.
