After Israel refused her entry, Minnessota Rep. Ilhan Omar just upped the ante and called for Congress to defund the Jewish State.
“We give Israel more than $3 million in aid every year. This is predicated on their being an important ally in the region and ‘the only democracy’ in the Middle East” Omar said.
“But denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally and denying millions of people freedom of movement or expressions or self-determination is not consistent with being a democracy” she added.
She then said “We must be asking as Israel’s ally the Netanyahu government stop the expansion of settlements on Palestinian land and ensure full rights for Palestinians if we are to give them aid.”

Rep. Omar has gone off the rails and it’s clear that she is an anti-Semite and hater of Israel and the Democratic Party has her back on this.
What is also clear is that Rep. Omar’s desire to visit Israel was nothing but a stuntfrom the beginning, as Fox News reports:
Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota condemned Israel’s recent decision to impose restrictions on visiting the country, with the two members of the so-called “Squad” calling on Congress to get involved.
However, one Fox News contributor, Andrew McCarthy, believes their attempts to travel to Israel last week were nothing but a farce. “It was a political stunt from the beginning,” he said on “America’s Newsroom. “I was glad to see that they called her on it because once she said, ‘Oh, never mind. I don’t want to come in the first place,’ I think it put the lie to the whole escapade.”
“Israel has a law on the books that makes promotion if you have an alien – that is, a non-Israeli – who is promoting this BDS movement, which is ‘Boycott, Divestiture, and Sanctions.’ They rightly consider that an attempt to dismantle and ultimately destroy the Jewish state,” McCarthy added.

McCarthy is right, Israel had every right to deny Omar and Tlaib entry to their country and they were correct in doing so.
