As you know by now Reps Tlaib and Omar were both denied entry to Israel over their antisemitic positions and BDS support. Tlaib wrote a letter to the Israeli govt promising her intentions are to visit her grandmother and that she would “respect any restrictions and will not promote any boycotts against Israel” during her visit.
The Israeli govt granted her entry where Tlaib chose not to go grandstanding that she wasn’t being treated fairly…
Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice. https://t.co/z5t5j3qk4H

The senior member of the 4 Horsewomen of the Apocalypse had no intentions of seeing her grandmother. First off the organization that was sponsoring her trip was describeed by David French as “a vile, vicious anti-Semitic group that spread blood libel, printed neo-nazi propaganda, and celebrates terrorists who kill children”.
Second if she really wanted to see her grandmother she would bite her lip and be on her way. Tlaib just wanted to score cheap political points against Israel, whom she despises, and also against POTUS, over his support for Israel, while conflating the Travel Ban (aka Muslim Ban) to her treatment by Israel.
Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now!

Oh and FYI Free Beacon reports instead of seeing granny Rashida will be attending a BDS event!
Tlaib is playing the racism card just as Leftists always do, esp now against Trump and Israel. What’s worse this time around she’s using her grandmother… then again that is when Leftists do as well – use anyone, including family, to push an agenda.
