Breitbart: An organization run by notorious Palestinian extremist and Israel boycott defender Hanan Ashrawi co-sponsored and organized the planned visit to Israel by controversial Representatives Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.
On Thursday, Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri confirmed the two congresswomen would be barred from entry in keeping with a law that allows Israel from denying passage to supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement seeking to delegitimize the Jewish state.
Omar and Tlaib are both prominent BDS supporters who last month introduced a resolution in Congress aimed at supporting the antisemitic BDS Movement, which targets the Middle East’s only democracy and is engaged in economic warfare against Israel. more …
Opinion: Take a wild guess as to who led the First Intifada and served as one of Yasser Arafat’s deputies …
… none other than Hanan Ashrawi who in 2001 referred to the creation of the state of Israel as “Nakba” or “catastrophe.”

The First Intifada
“On December 6, 1985, an Israeli citizen was stabbed to death
while shopping in the Gaza Strip, which had been under Israeli
control since the 1967 war. One day later, four Arab youths were
killed in a car accident in Jabalya (northern Gaza).
Rumors spread that the accident was a revenge killing, and
three days later an Arab youth was killed by an Israeli soldier after
throwing a Molotov cocktail at an Israeli army patrol. The violence
that erupted was led by Arafat’s Fatah party. Joining in on the
mayhem were the Popular Front, the Democratic Front, and the
Palestine Communist Party.
After four years of violence, including 3,600 Molotov cocktails,
one hundred hand grenades, and six hundred assaults, the death toll
reached 1,100 Arabs, 1,400 Israeli citizens, and 1,700 Israeli soldiers.”
NGO Monitor, a watchdog on extremist nonprofits, notes that Hanan Ashrawi’s group Miftah (“one who guides others to the right path”) has accused Israel of committing “massacres,” “apartheid,” “summary executions” of Palestinian youth and “Judaizing” Jerusalem. It has also accused Israel of “ethnic-cleansing of Israeli Arabs.”
The Omar/Tlaib Israel visit was a staged event to denigrate Israel. Had it been a legitimate Congressional tour, the two Congresswomen would have joined in with the other 41 Democrats who were in Israel last week where they were met by PM Netanyahu and the PA’s Abbas.
Israel bashing sideshow cancelled.
