President Trump and the Republicans say that Rep. Tlaib and Rep. Omar position to Israel, the representative of the democratic party, John Roberts reports.

Reps. Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib are, ramp up their criticism of Israel, to block the decision, they thrive from entering the country, where, according to Tlaib, “racism and the politics of hate” are”.”

But in defending its decision, the Israeli government is relying on the radical history of the group, was planned for Sponsoring the trip.

The group called Miftah, has a long record of anti-Israel rhetoric, if the attacks on Israelis, and also the description of suicide bombers as “to sacrifice their lives for the cause.” It is a record, to see the new control, as senior Democrats, according to reports, in retaliation weighing measures for the snub of the two freshman Democrats and the trombone and Netanyahu administrations hits.


“The organization, financing their trip is Miftah, who is an avid supporter of BDS (Boycott, divestment and sanctions movement), and among its members those who have said their support for terrorism against Israel,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a statement.

Netanyahu cited Miftah, as he is the legislator claims to have had ulterior motives, anti-Israel motifs in their planned journey to Israel.

For example, a 2006 Miftah log-in with the Second Intifada – a wave of Palestinian violence in the early 2000s – discussed Jerusalem, 2002 suicide bombing in a section with the title “Fighting Back”. They described the attack, where Wafa Idrees blew a bomb and killed one Israeli and wounded more than 100 others, as “the beginning of a series of Palestinian women dedicated to sacrificing their lives for the cause.”

More recently, Miftah founder, Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Palestinian liberation organization’s executive committee, objected to the reference to Palestinian attackers as terrorists in 2017 interview.

“You are seen by the people as a resistance, and not, somehow, to adopt the language of either the international community or the occupier, to describe anyone who resists, like a terrorist,” she told in Germany, describes, “this whole labelling thing,” as “unfair and unjust.”

Miftah’s not Fox News’ request for clarification of a company has responded to their attitude to violence.

The organization, the position on BDS is much clearer.

“The BDS movement for boycott, divestment and sanctioning of Israel, from the Palestinian civil society, is also a very important power that has great potential and deserves international attention,” wrote a member of Miftah in the media-and it-Department in the year 2010.


“Boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) give us hope,” a 2012 piece said. More recently, in June 2019 document, written by Miftah promoting an interview with Birzeit University lecturer Dr. Ghassan Khatib said, “There is coherence between the official Palestinian diplomacy and public diplomacy, a form of the BDS movement.”

Israeli law allows the country to bar anyone who promotes BDS from the input. Omar and Tlaib vocal supporters of the movement and planned a trip with a group that appears to support it fully. Agree with your colleagues in the house, meanwhile, passed a resolution in opposition to BDS in July with a 398-17.

“These two members were to go, were you to demand, to representatives of the US government, but they were searching for falling short of the American foreign policy and does not represent our current attitude of the government,” Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY, told “Fox & Friends” on Monday.


Miftah moved allegations of blatant anti-Semitism in 2013, when they published an article that gave credibility to the medieval blood libel, the false claim that the Jews Christian blood matzah for Passover. She apologized after the article drew the lots, stating that “the article was accidentally and incorrectly published by a junior employee.” She added that all employees had been informed, “as the vile and repulsive phenomena of blood libel or accusation, including its use against Jews.”


If the blood-libel article appeared in the midst of the discussion of Omar and Tlaib the planned trip, the Organisation has accused a combative tone in treatment, the “vicious circle of hatred groups” of “baseless allegations and lies” about Miftah, while the blame for the publication of the article on a junior is a member of “misstep.”

Omar and Tlaib are not the first members of Congress to plan a trip to Israel by Miftah. In 2016, Respectively. Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., Dan Kildee, D-Mich., Hank Johnson, D-Ga., Mark Pocan, D-Wis., and Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., went on a trip, the Miftah organized in addition to American Global Institute.

When the house voted on. July anti-BDS resolution, Cartwright, and Kildee voted in favour, while Pocan contradicted, and to present Johnson agreed. Gutierrez is not in the office.


2016 trip gained attention due to his description of the trip, which referred to allegedly have a meeting with Shawan Jabarin, an alleged member of the popular front for the liberation of Palestine, a terrorist organization.

When asked about the trip, Cartwright does not go into Detail, but told Fox News: “I have to add two trips with different groups, looking for ways to learn from the people there and the support of a vibrant democracy,”, “I go where I think I need to go to learn the facts. As a U.S. Congressman, I think that’s part of my job.”

The Congressman also stated, “My support for our great Alliance with Israel 100% and will continue unabated.”

To drive at the same time, the allowed 2016 travel through Israel – to call offers a potential fuel for those, Omar and Tlaib were blocked to blocked in the wrong. The game room has not settled since last week, as senior Democrats and even some Republicans-and even pro-Israel lobby, AIPAC, challenged the decision to nix the trip.

“Israel is to a refusal of entry for women in Congress, Tlaib and Omar is a sign of weakness, and the dignity of the great state of Israel,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a press release.
