The White House shot down a report claiming that President Donald Trump had told his advisers that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should block anti-Semitic Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering Israel.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham smacked down the Axios report, saying, “The Israeli government can do what they want. It’s fake news.”

Despite being in Congress for less than a year, both Omar and Tlaib have racked up well-documented histories of anti-Semitic, anti-Israel statements.

Axios claimed that Trump had told advisers that Omar and Tlaib should be banned from entering Israel due to their support for a boycott of the country. In 2017, Israel enacted a law that prevents foreigners who support an Israeli boycott from entering the country.

Omar and Tlaib are scheduled to go to Israel on August 18.

Last month, the Democrat-led House of Representatives passed a resolution opposing a boycott of Israel. Both Omar and Tlaib, who are Muslim, voted against the resolution.

They also support socialism — a failed ideology that is antithetical to American values.

Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin, who is Jewish, slammed Omar for her anti-Semitic rhetoric, noting that she supports anti-Jewish groups linked to the terrorist group Hamas.

Zeldin’s reaction came after Omar gave a speech during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing supporting a resolution promoting the BDS movement. The BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement is a Palestinian-led campaign promoting punishment of Israel.

“The BDS movement has not distanced itself from Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist organization,” Zeldin said. “BDS supporters individually are not distancing themselves from Hamas, either.”

Zeldin pointed out that a top Hamas official recently called for the death of all Jews. Predictably, Omar refused to condemn this violent rhetoric.

“There are members of this House who continue to prop up the BDS movement and blame Israel for all its challenges,” Zeldin said. “Israel is our best ally in the Middle East — a beacon of hope, freedom and liberty surrounded by existential threats.”

Zeldin added, “Shame on Representative Omar for bringing her hateful twist of this reality the [House Foreign Affairs] committee and this chamber.”

As BizPac Review reported, the feud between Zeldin and Omar erupted in January 2019, after Zeldin expressed concern that Omar ― a noted anti-Semite and terrorist sympathizer ― had just joined the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Omar tried to deflect from her history of anti-Semitism by suggesting that Zeldin has a problem working with a Muslim.

In reality, Lee Zeldin and other Jewish-Americans are genuinely worried about several anti-Israel Muslim lawmakers because Israel is a longstanding ally and friend to the United States.

Omar has stated that Israel is not a democracy and should not be allowed to exist as a Jewish state.

Reminder: People who hate Jews also despise Christians.

Keep in mind that while Omar and Rashida Tlaib repeatedly slam President Trump and all his supporters as racist, they only care about supporting “black, brown and Muslim voices.”

Meanwhile, Muslim Congressman Andre Carson projects that the US Congress will have 30 to 35 Muslim representatives by 2030. “We’ve got [Muslim] firepower in Congress!” Carson declared.

Moreover, Carson fantasizes that the US president and vice president will be Muslim in a few short years. Carson’s pro-Islam agenda for the United States mirrors the sentiments of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

Imagine the leftist outrage if a Christian said anything resembling this.
