While Israel has stated it would not bar Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering Israel on their upcoming Middle East trips, and it is assumed that, as with most visitors, they will enter via Ben-Gurion Airport, an evangelical leader says she has a better idea.
Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder of the Tennessee-based Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, has urged the Israeli government to have them enter Gaza from Egypt, through Hamas terror tunnels.
“Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib seek the absolute destruction of the State of Israel. They have proven in word and action that they hold deep-rooted hate for Jews and Israel,” she said. “Allowing them entry into the Jewish State will only embolden them to further their hate-filled agenda and incite terror attacks against Jews and Christians in Israel and abroad.”
She said Omar and Tlaib have raised money “for American front groups of the Muslim Brotherhood” such as the Council on American Islamic Relations and Islamic Relief USA. “These organizations are effectively Hamas representatives in Congress that endanger Israel and America,” she said.
“If Ilhan Omar wants to visit her Hamas friends in Gaza, she can use the terror tunnels from Egypt, or take a boat ride in. She can then witness first-hand the impact of her fundraising efforts and report back to her constituents about her successful campaign. No need to come through Tel Aviv.”
Cardoza-Moore, producer of the award-winning documentary “Boycott THIS!” and host of the award-winning Christian television program “Focus on Israel,” has amassed 40,000 signatures on a petition calling for Omar’s ousting from Congress.
In a letter to the Israeli Ambassador in Washington, Cardoza-Moore stated that “Omar and Tlaib simply seek Israel’s demise and should be barred from the country.”
Cardoza-Moore added, “these despicable anti-Semites… don’t belong in Congress and they certainly don’t belong in Israel. If this wasn’t 100 percent clear, it should be after they proposed a bill to allow boycotts against the world’s only Jewish State, equating it to Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany.”
