The nation of Israel is likely distraught tonight. Not because liberals are calling them racists and bigots for refusing to allow Democratic representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib into their country, but for a very different, more earth-shattering reason.
No, the Middle Eastern country will now not be graced with the presence of Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Yes, it’s sad but true. Ocasio-Cortez made her world-changing announcement on Twitter this afternoon.
Netanyahu’s discriminatory decision to ban members of Congress from Israel harms int’l diplomacy.
Visiting Israel & Palestine are key experiences towards a path to peace.
Sadly, I cannot move forward w scheduling any visits to Israel until all members of Congress are allowed. https://t.co/WTP5vnt5IH

Instead, it appears that she will be spending more time in the United States.
