Fox News panel breaks down Trump’s new feud with Omar, Tlaib


♪ ♪>>WE WILL NOT ALLOW TO ISRAEL PEOPLE WHO WORK TO DELEGITIMIZE THE JEWISH STATE.>>THE GOVERNMENT AND PARTICULAR PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU ARE BEHAVING LIKE A DICTATORSHIP IN THE SENSE THAT THEY CAN’T TOLERATE DISSENT, THEY CAN’T TOLERATE CRITICISM.>>THEY ARE SO ANTI-JEWISH, I DID SPEAK TO PEOPLE UP THERE. I DON’T ENCOURAGE OR DISCOURAGE.>>IT SETS A HORRIBLE PRECEDENT FOR ISRAEL IN MAKING THIS DECISION. WHY WOULD ANY COUNTRY MAKE A DECISION TO DENY A UNITED STATES CONGRESSMAN ACCESS TO THEIR COUNTRY? DO THEY NOT BELIEVE THE UNITED STATES HAS DONE A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT FOR ISRAEL?>>John: WE ARE BACK WITH OUR PANEL. THE CONGRESSMAN THERE, A DEMOCRAT IS JOINED BY VIRTUALLY EVERY OTHER DEMOCRAT IN BLASTING PRESIDENT TRUMP AND BENJAMIN NETANYAHU FOR THIS DECISION, HOW SAYS THE PANEL?>>FROM THE ISRAELI SECURITY STANDPOINT POINT OF VIEW, THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM TO SAY ACTUALLY, IF YOU ARE SUPPORTING SOMETHING THAT IS MANIFESTLY AGAINST THE ISRAELI NATIONAL SECURITY INTERESTS IN TERMS OF ECONOMIC BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT, THAT AIMS TO — BUT THE YOUNG PROGRESSIVE ELEMENTS THAT ARE COMING IN AND NOW WITH THE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS HAVING TO SURROUND THESE TWO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, THERE IS A CHALLENGE THAT IT FORCES THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO COALESCE IN A WAY THAT PERHAPS MAKES THEM MORE ANTI-ISRAEL.>>John: IT WAS INTERESTING TO HEAR A MEMBER OF THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY BLASTING ISRAEL FOR NOT LETTING HER, NOT LETTING HIS MEMBERS OF CONGRESS INTO THE COUNTRY — SHE’S BEEN BLOCKED FROM COMING INTO THE UNITED STATES.>>THERE IS A WIDESPREAD REJECTION OF BORDERS AND NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY THAT WE ARE SEEING IN SOME GROUPS ON THE LEFT. THE FIRST QUESTION THAT NEEDS TO BE ANSWERED IS WHETHER ISRAEL HAS THE RIGHT TO DETERMINE WHO COMES INTO THEIR COUNTRY AND THEY HAVE A LAW FORBIDDING ENTRY TO NONCITIZENS BOYCOTTING ISRAE ISRAEL. THEY WERE WILLING TO PROVIDE THESE EXCEPTIONS TO THESE TWO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS BUT THEN THEY FOUND OUT THE ITINERARY OF THESE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHICH THE AMBASSADOR TO THE U.S. DESCRIBED AS A BDS CIRCUS. FINDING OUT THEY WERE COMING NOT AS AN OUTREACH MISSION OR TO FIND FACTS ABOUT ISRAEL BUT TO DO SOMETHING THAT WAS SO POLITICAL, IT WOULD BE DIRECT VIOLATION OF AN ISRAELI LAW, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO THIS. IT’S UNFORTUNATE BECAUSE IT’S GOOD FOR PEOPLE TO VISIT ISRAEL TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE COUNTRY AND UNDERSTAND THE COMPLEXITY OF THE SITUATION THERE, NOT JUST ABOUT ISRAEL BUT THE PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES AS WELL. ONE HOPES SHE WILL BE ABLE TO VISIT UNDER DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES.>>John: SOME REPUBLICANS HAVE SUGGESTED THIS IS A BAD MOVE, SENATOR MARTHA McSALLY IS NOT AMONG THEM. LISTEN TO HER TAKE ON ALL OF THIS.>>RASHIDA IS A PALESTINIAN WHO IS COMING TO VISIT HER COUNTRY, HER FAMILY, HER VILLAGE, HER FATHER AND HER MOTHER, THEIR ROOTS ARE PALESTINIAN. HER GRANDFATHER, HER GRANDMOTHE GRANDMOTHER, THEY ARE FROM PALESTINE AND THEY TALK ALL THE TIME ABOUT HOW SHE IS PALESTINIAN.>>ISRAEL HAS A RIGHT TO DECIDE WHO CAN COME UNDER THEIR COUNTRY, I LOVE ISRAEL, I’VE BEEN DEPLOYED TO THE MIDDLE EAST FIVE TIMES AND I THINK BOTH OMAR AND RASHIDA TO TLAIB, THEIR A AND RASHIDA TO TLAIB, THEIR T AND RASHIDA TO TLAIB, THEIR O AND RASHIDA TO TLAIB, THEIR S HAVE BEEN DANGEROUS.>>John: INTERESTING POLITICS ON BOTH SIDES.>>IT’S IMPORTANT TO SEPARATE THE POLICY FROM THE POLITICS. ISRAEL IS A SAYING WE’RE GOING TO BOYCOTT THE BOYCOTT HERS AND THIS BDS MOVEMENT HAS ANTI-SEMITIC ROUTES AND IT’S RADICAL. THESE ARE THE FIRST TWO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO HOLD THOSE ANTI-ISRAEL VIEWS. THEY HAVE DONE THIS WITH OTHER ALLIES OF OTHER COUNTRIES, THE POLITICS ARE MUCH MORE TRICKY FOR ISRAEL. THEY RELY ON BIPARTISAN SUPPORT IN CONGRESS, ESPECIALLY DEMOCRATIC SUPPORT. ALL THE ISRAEL VOTES RELY ON THE MAJORITY DEMOCRATS. YOU ARE LOSING THAT BIPARTISANSHIP.>>YOU THINK ISRAEL SHOULD NOT HAVE BANNED THESE TWO.>>THEY ARE LOSING THE P.R. BATTLE, THAT’S A LOT OF THE GAME FOR THIS ISSUE.>>PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE EFFORTS AND THERE’S A LOT OF TOLERANCE OF LICATA MOVEMENTS ON THE AMERICAN LEFT. IT’S IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THOSE MOVEMENTS AND THE HARM THEY CAUSE INSTEAD OF JUST TOLERATING MEN.>>THIS WAS NOT GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION.>>THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY BEING A NECESSARY ALLY FOR LONG-STANDING SECURITY STRATEGY IS SOMETHING I THINK MEANS IT’S ON THE BALANCE EVEN IF THE BDS THING IS A BIG PROBLEM.>>WE HAVE ALSO BANNED ISRAELI PARLIAMENTARY MEMBERS, A MEMBER OF THE KNESSET WAS NOT ALLOWED TO COME BECAUSE OF THE VIEWS HE HELD.>>IT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT TRUMP WAS A BIG PROPONENT OF NOT LETTING THESE TWO MEMBERS TO GO TO ISRAEL. HE WANTED THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO BE REPRESENTATIVE OF TLAIB AND OMAR’S VALUES. THERE’S CERTAINLY NOT A LOT OF SUPPORT IN ISRAEL FOR THESE TWO BACKBENCHERS ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE. THE NETANYAHU GOVERNMENT ORIGINALLY SAID IT WAS OKAY FOR THEM TO COME. TRUMP TWEETED OUT THAT HE WOULD VIEW THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND HE QUICKLY SAW BACKTRACKING FROM
