Rashida Tlaib Insults Major American Ally After Dispute

Via Fox News:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., indicated Friday that she will not travel to the West Bank to visit family, despite getting permission hours before from Israel’s interior minister — following a diplomatic firestorm over the government’s earlier refusal to allow her and a colleague entry as part of a broader visit.

“I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice,” she tweeted.

This was an apparent reference to Tlaib’s earlier pledge not to promote boycotts of Israel during her visit.

In a series of tweets, Tlaib indicated that she did not want to abide by such restrictions.
