Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who have both been accused of making antisemitic statements, are reportedly being barred from entering Israel over their support for an international movement aimed at marginalizing the majority Jewish country. Meanwhile, another report indicated that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was meeting with officials and hadn’t made a decision yet.
The reason for the reported ban is “suspected provocations and promotion of BDS,” Dana Weiss of Israel’s Channel 12 reported on Aug. 15, referring to the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement.
Weiss said the ban is now “official.”
So, officially, they are being banned per one source. I will wait to see if there is more confirmation on this matter.
