House Speaker Nancy Pelosi eviscerates Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for doing Donald Trump’s bidding to bar Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib’s entry to Israel.
“Last month, Israeli Ambassador Dermer stated that, ‘Out of respect for the U.S. Congress and the great alliance between Israel and America, we would not deny entry to any Member of Congress into Israel.’ This is a sad reversal and is deeply disappointing. I pray that the Government of Israel will reverse that denial,” Pelosi said in a scathing statement.
“Israel’s denial of entry to Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar is a sign of weakness, and beneath the dignity of the great State of Israel. The President’s statements about the Congresswomen are a sign of ignorance and disrespect, and beneath the dignity of the Office of the President.”
The fallout is intensifying as it is yet another proof that Trump will use anyone, including foreign leaders to go after his critics.
Benjamin Netanyahu is acting as though Israel is the one giving America money and gets to call the shots. I hope he realizes that one day America will have a Democratic president….
