It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!

Sentence #1 - The head of the executive branch of government suggests that a foreign government should not allow a visit by two members of the legislative branch of the U S government. Wow! That may be a first in U.S. history.

Sentence #2(b) - He states, without producing any evidence, that they hate Israel. Like many people in America and throughout the world they almost certainly strongly disapprove of many of the policies and actions of the Israeli government, but that does not necessarily mean that they hate Israel. We should not be surprised at this claim -.the cries of Trump and his supporters that virtually anybody who expresses disapproval of certain things that the U S government does must hate America or hate the flag is all too common. And this in a democracy in which free speech is supposed to be respected.
Disapproval of acts and policies is not hatred of a country or its flag!

Sentence #2(c) - He states, without a shred of evidence, that they hate all Jewish people. This is a preposterous claim.

Sentence 2(d) -He claims that there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. I wonder how he knows this?

Sentence #3 - He claims that Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office.

In their elections to Congress, Ilhan Omar received 48.2% of the vote while her closest rival received 30.4%; Rashida Tlaib received 84.2% against her closest rival's 11.3%. (Ballotpedia figures)

I suspect that they have less to worry about at re-election time than Trump, who, in his last election, received 46% of the vote against his closest rival's 48%

Sentence #4: They are a disgrace!
Hmmm

Trump is not the only one to tweet about the congresswomen:

Marco Rubio@marcorubio wrote:

I disagree 100% with Reps. Tlaib & Omar on #Israel & am the author of the #AntiBDS bill we passed in the Senate


Fine. He has a perfect right to disagree.

Quote:
But denying them entry into #Israel is a mistake.

Being blocked is what they really hoped for all along in order to bolster their attacks against the Jewish state.

Wow! That is an unreasonable jump, unless he has some evidence for his claim that they hoped for this. I doubt it. Evidence is something that Trump and his supporters rarely feel a need for

And even if it were true that this is what they hoped for, and that not only Senator Rubio but also the Israeli government knew this, then Trump and the Israelis were idiots to do what was bound to increase support for the congresswomen and to stiffen Opposition to Israeli policies.

If the Israeli government did not know something that is apparently blatantly obvious to Senator Rubio, then the Israeli intelligence services are far from as smart as we are sometimes led to believe.

If the Trump did not know something that is apparently blatantly obvious to Senator Rubio, then he (Trump) is far from as smart as the 'stable genius' he has claimed on several occasions to be
