Omar and Tlaib rightly blocked from visiting ‘non-existent’ country Palestine
At first blush, Israel’s decision to bar Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib looked like a mistake. My gut reaction was that the move would simultaneously make Israel appear weak and allow critics to claim the incident proves the Jewish state has no interest in peace with the Palestinians.

It didn’t help that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had initially signaled the two Democrats could visit despite their support for the BDS movement, which Israel has outlawed. When it became clear that Net­anyahu reversed his decision at President Trump’s urging, the situation appeared to go from bad to worse.

Both the United States and Israel looked to have blundered. Or so I thought.

Then facts and history had their say. Now, I believe Trump and Netanyahu made the right move.

They had no good options and chose the lesser of two evils.


  1. The did NOT choose the lesser of two evils.

    They chose NOT to let Two Evils visit.

  2. But wait. I thought everything Trump says or does is wrong, and in this case Bibi listened to him so Bibi must be wrong. Brain Malfunction! Alert! Alert!!!

  3. How can you visit a country whose existence you don't accept?
    I know what they could have done. When they landed at Nutbag they could have covered their faces with the veils those Bratzlovers use when they go through the airport.

    they don't accept it, and they wish to end it - rasha aroom. Their objective is the same as Hamas and PLO, however they are using the Democrat useful idiots as a vehicle to do this.
