Omar Calls Netanyahu & Trump “Islamophobes” After Being Banned From Israel!


Rep. Ilhan Omar is not happy about being barred from visiting Israel.

She’s just released an official statement in response to the ban by Israeli officials earlier today.

According to Omar’s side of the story, it’s not her support of the BDS movement to boycott Israel that got her banned (keep in mind that Israeli law permits authorities to deny entry into Israel by those who are in favor of boycotting the country.)

It’s not her repeated anti-Israel statements, like this one:

No, not any of that.

According to Ilhan Omar, "Islamophobia" is to blame for why she and fellow Muslim congresswoman Rashida Tlaib have been blocked from travelling to Israel.

Here's what she said in the statement:

"It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government. Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected Members of Congress.  Denying entry into Israel not only limits our ability to learn from Israelis, but also to enter the Palestinian territories.  Sadly, this is not a surprise given the public positions of Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has consistently resisted peace efforts, restricted the freedom of movement of Palestinians, limited public knowledge of the brutal realities of the occupation and aligned himself with Islamophobes like Donald Trump."

Check out how patriots are responding to Omar's over-used, worn-out "blame Trump, cry Islamophobia" card playing:


Townhall had the following to say about Omar's response:

Anti-semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was banned from entering Israel Thursday ahead of a planned trip to the country tomorrow. She's an avid supported of the BDS-movement, which aims to destroy the country through boycotts, sanctions and divestment. 

In typical fashion, Omar reacted to the news by accusing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Islamophobia and questioned the country's status as a democracy. 

“It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government. Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected Members of Congress.  Denying entry into Israel not only limits our ability to learn from Israelis, but also to enter the Palestinian territories.  Sadly, this is not a surprise given the public positions of Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has consistently resisted peace efforts, restricted the freedom of movement of Palestinians, limited public knowledge of the brutal realities of the occupation and aligned himself with Islamophobes like Donald Trump," Omar released in a statement.

Breitbart also commented:

Omar reacted to Israel’s decision Thursday afternoon, calling it an “affront.”

“It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government,” she said in a statement.

“Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected Members of Congress. Denying entry into Israel not only limits our ability to learn from Israelis, but also to enter the Palestinian Territories,” she continued before blasting Netanyahu and accusing him of aligning with “Islamophobes” like President Trump:

Fellow “Squad” member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) agreed, tweeting that Trump is “exporting his bigotry”:

MoC are frequently asked to visit Israel to “see things for ourselves.” 

But Netanyahu choosing to ban the only 2 Muslim women in Congress from entering tells the US that only *some* Americans are welcome to Israel, not all.

Trump is exporting his bigotry &making matters worse. https://t.co/PFdMDxuIfJ

Trump signaled support for Netanyahu’s decision Thursday, tweeting, “Representatives Omar and Tlaib are the face of the Democrat Party, and they HATE Israel!”:

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!
