Rashida Tlaib And Ilhan Omar Are Planning To Go To The Middle East
Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are planning a trip to Israel but needs permission from Benjamin Netanyahu.
Israel's Foreign Ministry can recommend diplomatic exceptions for law denying entry to BDS supporters, but due to visit's sensitivity, the premier would have to make the call.
Democratic U.S. Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are planning a visit to Israel and the West Bank in the coming weeks, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will have to decide whether they would be let in to the country, over the support they have voiced for the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.
The Jewish Insider first reported their plan Wednesday, noting that Omar said that the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories will be the focal point of the trip: "Everything that I hear points to both sides feeling like there is still an occupation."
Israeli law allows authorities to deny entry into the country by individuals who support boycotting the country. However, the Foreign Ministry has the authority to recommend to the Strategic Affairs Ministry and the Interior Ministry issuing waivers for political or diplomatic figures, if it deems denying them entry would harm Israel's foreign relations.
