Will Netanyahu Bar Ilhan Omar from Entering Israel?

July 18, 2019 at 6:24 am EDT By Taegan Goddard

“A government official told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s National Security Council was reviewing the issue and would offer him recommendations on how to respond.”

“According to the dry law, Omar, whose legislation explicitly calls for the boycott of Israel, could be denied entry to Israel. However, due to her status as a US congresswoman, Israel is unlikely to use the legislation which if done, could spark an international crisis.”

Playbook: “We’s have to imagine Trump would be pretty pleased if his friend and ally Benjamin Netanyahu declined to allow Omar and Tlaib — the president’s enemies, at the moment — into Israel. This could cause a diplomatic row, though, since Omar and Tlaib are elected federal officials.”
