Imaging being so obsessed with yourself you think the mere presence of you is a gift, the absence of you a punishment. So believeth Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, America’s perpetual skin rash. When she learned her gal pals and co-Israel haters Tlaib and Omar were not permitted into Israel, She With A Bigger Ego than the Land Mass of Alaska tweeted this:
MoC are frequently asked to visit Israel to “see things for ourselves.”
But Netanyahu choosing to ban the only 2 Muslim women in Congress from entering tells the US that only *some* Americans are welcome to Israel, not all.
Trump is exporting his bigotry &making matters worse. https://t.co/PFdMDxuIfJ

I’m not sure how AOC not making an appearance in Israel is a punishment for Israel. If you figure it out, tweet me.
Here’s what I do know:
“Sadly, I cannot move forward w scheduling any visits to Israel until all members of Congress are allowed.”
So now there are two places that AOC refuses to visit:
2. Israel https://t.co/6F0Fo0IIGE

I believe we’d call that an image crisis.
Bibi had some damn good reasons for telling the congress ladies they couldn’t come to his country. It had nothing to do with being Muslim, but everything to do with their clear agenda to drag Israel on their trip. Here, go read about it: Israel Will Bar Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from Entry.
Trump isn’t exporting bigotry. Israel has long had this policy of not allowing pro-BDS people into its country, especially those who’re so vocal about their hatred of Israel. But for AOC, reading is hard.
More to the point, who in Israel is sitting by a calendar counting down the days until AOC rolls up with her Prada pumps, Hugo Boss watch, and quick deploy tears which she releases upon the grisly sight of an empty
parking lot street? Who exactly is AOC thinking AOC is punishing by not gracing the nation of Israel with AOC?
Also, Israel isn’t the United States. Yes I know that’s obvious to you. But you is smart. AOC is an entitled brat who thinks everyone should be allowed into anywhere she sees fit. That’s not how any of this works. Israel is a nation which has every right to allow or bar entry as they see fit. As does the United States. If what AOC really wants is for Tlaib and Omar to live it up Jewish style, then maybe she could encourage her squad to tone down the anti-Israel rhetoric and actions.
Neither AOC nor anyone else has the right to go to Israel. Israel has the right to decide who enters. It’s a basic sovereignty thing. Which I understand is hard for some people to comprehend.
