Ilhan Omar is really, really upset that she doesn’t get to visit Israel, you guys:
It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government.

Hard to feel much sympathy for someone who just got told she can’t visit the country she seeks to punish and whose existence she denies.
Or it's cause you've said many things in the past that make the people of Israel question if they should let you in…

Maybe rethink attacking Israel and being the spokesperson for BDS.

You're statement is a joke and totally disingenuous. What oversight were you planning to do on behalf of HFAC and foreign aid? You literally had ZERO mtgs planned with anyone from the Govt. If interested in oversight why didn't you go with 40 of your colleagues last week? https://t.co/YppL3FLoHQ

Israeli law is pretty clear. You're an advocate for the anti-Semitic #BDS movement, so you can't be granted entry into Israel. You're asking to be treated differently just because you are a member of Congress.
You aren't above the law. https://t.co/MLEiWvxUIH

And she has no business lecturing Israel — or anyone else, for that matter — on human rights.
