Well, this was predictable. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) came to the defense of her terrorist-sympathizing colleagues known for peddling anti-Semitic tropes today. The call was made and the anti-Semitism defense league was assembled. Why? Well, as Katie noted, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu barred Reps. Rashida Talib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering the country and rightfully so. Both women support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, which is viciously anti-Israel. And by vicious, I mean, these clowns are pushing for the destruction of the Jewish state[.] . .
AOC then accused Netanyahu of supporting a message that only some Americans are welcome (via The Hill):
MoC are frequently asked to visit Israel to “see things for ourselves.”
But Netanyahu choosing to ban the only 2 Muslim women in Congress from entering tells the US that only *some* Americans are welcome to Israel, not all.
Trump is exporting his bigotry &making matters worse. https://t.co/PFdMDxuIfJ

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tore into Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after he announced he would not permit Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) entry for an upcoming trip to Israel and the Palestinian territories.
“[Members of Congress] are frequently asked to visit Israel to ‘see things for ourselves,’” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “But Netanyahu choosing to ban the only 2 Muslim women in Congress from entering tells the US that only *some* Americans are welcome to Israel, not all.”
According to their own itinerary, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib chose to refer to Israel as “Palestine”.
Their trip there was little more than a self-indulgent ploy to delegitimize and malign the Jewish State from within its borders. pic.twitter.com/yjDEUeMayo

Such a diplomatic embarrassment by two people who wanted to embarrass a US ally. https://t.co/mE7f0XS8vl

"Can you believe Israel banned those two terrorist-sympathizing anti-Semites from entering its country?" cried the writer whose co-workers had a complete meltdown over the thought of a guy who opposes baby murder working on the same floor as them.

OMAR AND TLAIB: We hate Israel and want it destroyed, and also we're going to provocatively refer to Israel as "Palestine" in our official delegation documents. Let us in.
OMAR AND TLAIB: THIS IS TRUMP'S MUSLIM BAN!
