Rashida Tlaib Caught Lying About the Jewish State Yet Again

Israel has been admitted into the US Visa Waiver Program, and Rashida Tlaib seems this close to being admitted to a mental institution:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Representative Rashida Tlaib (MI-12) released the following statement on the Biden Administration’s admission of Israel into the Visa Waiver Program:

“The Biden Administration’s decision to admit Israel into the Visa Waiver Program explicitly condones and enables the Israeli government’s discriminatory practices towards Americans requesting entry, including hours of detainment and interrogation.

“The far-right Israeli government routinely discriminates against Americans seeking to enter the country, even denying myself and Congresswoman Omar entry in 2019. This decision enables further racist practices and violence towards Americans including the murder of Shireen Abu Akleh. The United States has yet to hold the Israeli government accountable.

“The Visa Waiver Program requires that all U.S. citizens are treated equally. I have received consistent reports of discrimination of Americans attempting to enter Israel. No one should be discriminated against due to their national origin, ethnicity, or faith.

By moving forward with this decision, the U.S. government is allowing a foreign government to discriminate against its own citizens based on protected class. The Israeli government has not and will not uphold reciprocity.”

Naturally, her statement is one big lie after another.

Regarding her allegation that Israel denied her and Ilhan Omar entry in 2019, this was initially the case but only because they planned on using their trip to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy (even planning to meet with an antisemitic organization). But Israel subsequently allowed Tlaib to enter Israel on humanitarian grounds (to visit her old grandmother) if she vowed to respect ‘any restrictions,’ and refrain from promoting a boycott during her stay. This proved to be a bridge too far for Tlaib, who refused to come.

Regarding her characterization of Shireen Abu Akleh’s killing as “murder”, this is simply a blood libel against the Jewish state, and goes against the US State Department’s findings that she was killed unintentionally, likely from IDF gunfire but not definitively.

As for so-called reports of discrimination of Americans attempting to enter Israel, it is true there is racial profiling, but as I recently posted when terror-supporting journalist Noor Fawaz went through strict security:

Palestinian arabs pretty much invented plane hijackings, which were commonplace in the 70s. We also know that palestinian Arab terrorists are willing to pretty much do anything, and do not value their own lives, let alone the lives of innocents. Ever wonder why we do not still see plane hijackings on Israel-bound flights, or these flights being blown up? The answer is simple: the level of security to which Fawaz was subjected.

In short: Rashida Tlaib has proven again with her malicious lies that she is a disgrace to the office of Congress.
