And Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thought she had done something special by traveling to the southern border for a photoshoot of her breaking down at the sight of an empty parking lot at a Border Patrol facility in Tornillo, Texas.
Not to be outdone, Rep. Ilhan Omar, fresh off her announcement that she’s going to introduce a resolution to support the BDS movement against Israel (hey, the U.S. boycotted Nazi Germany, which is pretty much the same thing), says she’s traveling to Israel and Palestine to take an up-close look at the occupation. And seeing as she’s using the word occupation, it’s pretty clear what she expects to find.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) tells me she's traveling to Israel and Palestine "in a few weeks" and looks forward to learning more, specifically about occupation. "Everything that I hear points to both sides feeling like there is still an occupation.”

Given her terror affiliations and support for BDS, I’m very curious about whether Israel will actually let her in https://t.co/GqAdWsON4M

So a trip to Gaza strip filled with self-portraits of AOC looking sad about the children.

She should bring AOC's camera crew.

In other words, she's going there to film a propaganda film for her mostly anti-Israel base.

It's going to be a short trip. Because there is no such place as "Palestine".

Palestine? Wheres that?

Israel and where? Couldn’t find that second place on the map.

I see Israel on the map. But this “Palestine” evaded me. 🤔 pic.twitter.com/Kiw3IUxPW4

There is no “Palestine.” Do you mean Gaza? Or the West Bank?

Palestine, where Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s from.
She’s the gift that keeps on giving

Everything I hear points to Ilhan already having made up her mind

Sounds less like "learning more" and more like "confirming her presumptions"

When you are already calling it an "occupation" what could possibly go wrong.
— Tejas Conservative (@TXGaryM) July 17, 2019
Perhaps she could learn there is no occupation and that Israel pulled out over a decade ago.
— Bonchie (@bonchieredstate) July 17, 2019
There is no "occupation." Hamas, not Israel, fully controls Gaza. No Israeli in his right mind would set foot there. There is no "Palestine" or "occupation." Israel is Israel.

'Amazing. Clarifying.' Ilhan Omar is using Holocaust victims to justify her latest anti-Semitic strategy https://t.co/6tzif9zh5g
