Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli Likud Mk and former mayor of occupied Jerusalem urged US. congresswoman Rashda Tlaib in a tweet on Friday to go to Iran and Syria instead of Palestine and the occupation state of Israel.
“Take your hatred, fanaticism and bigotry to places like Iran and Syria, which you so admire. We have no interest in welcoming terrorist supporters here”, he tweeted.
Nir Barakat also claimed that Tlaib did not mean well from the start” when she rejected an offer by ‘Israel’ to visit her homeland and grandmother under condition of not mentioning the BDS movement during the visit.
Barkat tweeted to Tlaib that she “proved her real intentions,” which he said were “to use your 90-year-old grandmother to wage political war calling for Israel’s destruction and boycott.”
The ruling party MK and former mayor of occupied Jerusalem is also a candidate for the cabinet seat left vacant by the resignation of Social Services Minister.
“Instead of striving for peace and coexistence between Jews and Arabs, you have chosen a policy of hatred and boycott,” Barkat wrote. “With attitudes like those, you will never be welcomed here”, Barakat added.
US. congresswomen, who are both Muslim women of color, were denied their right to visit Palestine for supporting the BDS movement, which works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.
