Ilhan Omer (actually Elmi) is flying to Ramallah in early August, via Ben Gurion whence she may (just may) have to sit on the ground until takeoff again because she’s denied entry. Needs a waiver on Israel’s anti-BDS law from Bibi. Of course she knows all this. Why do you think she’s going?
Rich with entertainment possibilities, even if Bibi doesn’t bite, as she pins the radical tail on the Donkey. Go for the buttered popcorn.
UPDATE: They’re letting her in out of “respect for the Congress.” Oh.
MORE: No, they’re not. Israel blocked her and her Rep pal Tlaib from entering because of their BDS activism and Israel’s anti-BDS law. Just what they wanted, probably. A nice, nasty controversy. “Also noteworthy is the fact that the sponsors of Reps Omar and Tlaib’s trip was an organization called Miftah, that has claimed that ‘Jews use the blood of Christians in Jewish Passover.’”
