Israel exercised its sovereign right yesterday to deny entry to two women who make no secret of hating the Jewish State and championing a boycott, divestment and sanction movement designed to delegitimize and otherwise harm it.
The Israeli government subsequently decided to allow one of the two, who happen to be Members of Congress, to visit an ailing relative on the condition that she not use the occasion to further her agenda of boycotting Israel. Rep. Rashida Tlaib has reportedly agreed to those terms. Evidently, Rep. Ilhan Omar is still not getting a visa.
Many Congressional Democrats insist that these provocateurs must be admitted into Israel. They are, thereby, undermining the recent, overwhelming vote engineered by the House Democratic leadership finally to begin distancing its caucus from these anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist legislators by repudiating the so-called BDS Movement they so vehemently endorse.
