Banning boycotts of foreign countries is also a restriction of free speech and that was her focus, unfortunately that was lost because of the manner in which it was stated.

We Republicans thank her!
Questioning Trump movement s regarding Israel IS NOT ANTISEMITISM

No, her stance is hyper hypocrisy on steroids .... because, according to these loons, if you disagree with them, you’re a racist .... but their OVERT RACISM is simply defending freedom.

I'm not surprised. She hates Jews. I think she hates America too. She was laughing and mocking 9/11. Personally, I can't stand her.

Her description of 9/11..."Somebody did something"

Yes, she should have said, Saudi Arabia, the US #2 ally in the ME, attacked us, sponsored the attack, and got away with it.

But calling out Saudi Arabia is not kosher.

Anyone can boycott any foreign country they wish. It doesn't take a Congressional Resolution to do so. Furthermore, such a Congressional Resolution to boycott an ally is inappropriate and extremely ill-advised foreign policy. So what in the hell is Omar doing on the House Foreign Affairs Committee? Whoever made that committee assignment was incredibly foolish.

I hope Israel bans Omar and Tlaib from entry to Israel for the scheduled Congressional visit, as they have every right to. Both have proven to be extremely hostile to Israel.

Correct. It is just not Israel hate. It is the hate, and disrespect of Jews, including American Jews, yet secular, Progressive American Jews defend , and vote lock step Democrat.

They went well beyond disagreeing with her point, of that were true there wouldn’t be such a reaction.

Last year congress attempted to force contractors at the federal level to promise not to support the BDS boycott, they also attempted to pass a bill encouraging states to restrict companies they do business with for the same.


There are several states like NY and Texas that prohibit business with companies that support the boycott. So, yes that is true on the federal level but not on the state level but its not because they didn't try. I don't see her bill seeing the light of day but it sure got more attention than the unconstitutional bills that were anti-BDS.
