OK, so Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Illhan Omar have kicked their anti-Israel movement up a notch.
On Monday, both held press conferences in which they called out the tiny Middle Eastern country for their “harsh treatment” of the two freshman Democratic congresswomen. Both are ardently anti-Israel, both are supporters of the BDS movement and now are complaining that Israel will not allow them into that country.
One could easily make the argument that this is exactly what these two women wanted the entire time. This only brings them more and more attention and they also get to call out Israel and denigrate them for their supposed mistreatment of the Palestinian people.
During her remarks, Omar went so far as to suggest that Israel is not a democracy nor is it an ally. Why? Because they wouldn’t allow two women into the country who are strong supporters of the BDS movement.

Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar call on their congressional colleagues to visit Israel despite the country's initial decision to ban the two of them: "We cannot let Trump and Netanyahu succeed in hiding the cruel reality of the occupation from us." https://t.co/15XlWmvbWM pic.twitter.com/ehQhNQ07LK
