The Left (and at least one self-described “conservative”) was aghast after Benjamin Netanyahu announced that Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar would be barred from visiting Israel. Ilhan Omar claimed that the two members of Congress are being barred because Israel is implementing “Trump’s Muslim ban.” However, as we reported earlier, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu cited Omar and Tlaib’s travel itinerary as one reason the two wouldn’t be welcome:

Here’s the itinerary that Netanyahu talked about in his tweets:

According to their own itinerary, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib chose to refer to Israel as “Palestine”.
Their trip there was little more than a self-indulgent ploy to delegitimize and malign the Jewish State from within its borders. pic.twitter.com/yjDEUeMayo

Wow, that’s… something else.
Okay, I didn't know this. They are definitely bad actors. I understand the decision a little more now. https://t.co/JXxae2RVub

Such a diplomatic embarrassment by two people who wanted to embarrass a US ally. https://t.co/mE7f0XS8vl

Apparently the “Palestine” schedule is real. Do people understand the implications that Israel does not have the right to exist? If anything confirms what the Pro-BDS bill is about, this is it. #therearenowords https://t.co/CUiAtmH2PC
