Ilhan Omar’s scandals and controversies continue to pile up.
But for once Omar paid a price for her bad behavior.
That’s because Ilhan Omar got caught breaking this law that led to her downfall.
Omar and her fellow Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib were set to visit Israel.
This visit generated international outrage because of Tlaib and Omar’s repeated anti-Semitic comments.
To make matters worse, Tlaib and Omar listed an itinerary for the trip that referred to their visit to “Palestine” and not Israel.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu originally planned to allow the two anti-Semitic Congresswomen to travel to Israel.
But President Trump publicly objected to two tried and true Israel haters traveling to the country and representing the United States.
“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!” the President tweeted.
Hours after the President’s tweet, Prime Minister Netanyahu announced his government barred Congresswomen Omar and Tlaib from stepping foot in Israel.
Netanyahu cited Omar and Tlaib’s support for the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
“Israel is open to critics and criticism, with one exception: Israeli law prohibits the entry into Israel of those who call for, and work to impose, boycotts on Israel, as do other democracies that prevent the entry of people believed to be damaging to the country,” Netanyahu explained in a statement.
Omar raged about the decision.
“The irony of the ‘only democracy’ in the Middle East making such a decision is that it is both an insult to democratic values and a chilling response to a visit by government officials from an allied nation,” Omar ranted.
Omar and Tlaib secretly cheered this decision.
The two anti-Semites thought Netanyahu banning them from traveling to Israel proved Israel was an apartheid state.
But they badly miscalculated.
Countries have the ability to control who enters their borders.
And in fact, back in 2012, the Obama administration denied a visa to Michael Ben-Ari who belonged to the Kach party, which sits at the far end of the Israeli political spectrum.
Israel owes no obligation to provide a platform to two high profile politicians that openly call for Israel’s economic destruction through the BDS movement.
The issue also reveals how far-left the Democrat Party drifted.
Support for Israel used to be a bipartisan consensus issue.
But ever since Barack Obama took office, the Democrat Party has been fueled by a younger cohort of voters that see the Israelis as racist oppressors of the innocent and saintly Palestinian people sought to push policies that directly threatened Israel’s security.
The Obama administration even meddled in the 2015 Israeli elections when the State Department funneled $250,000 to an opposing political party to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu because of Netanyahu’s opposition to the disastrous Iran nuclear deal.
The fake news media won’t cover this issue honestly and point out that Omar and Tlaib violated Israeli law by supporting the anti-Semitic BDS movement, but so-called reporters will instead use the story as another example of “racist” Donald Trump attacking two minority Congresswomen.
