Israel weighs banning Reps. Omar, Tlaib from visiting country


>>MOSCOW MITCH SAYS THAT HE IS THE GRIM REAPER. THAT HE IS GOING TO BURY ALL OF THIS LEGISLATION. WELL, WE HAVE NEWS FOR HIM. ALL OF THIS LEGISLATION IS ALIVE AND WELL.>>Bill: THAT IS FROM ILLINOIS YESTERDAY, NANCY PELOSI WENT THERE, BLOCKING ELECTION SECURITY LEGISLATION IN THE SENATE. GUY BENSON, TownHall.com, HOST OF “THE GUY BENSON SHOW.” SO, SHE WENT THERE. MOSCOW MITCH.>>YEAH, SHE DID. IT’S UNBECOMING, BUT IT’S ALSO UNSURPRISING, GIVEN THE DIRECTION OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THESE DAYS. McCONNELL GAVE A VERY SPEECH, VERY FIERY BY HIS STANDARDS, DEFENDING HIS OWN RECORD. SPENDING DECADES ON RUSSIA. I DO YOU FIND IT INTERESTING THAT SHE WOULD GO THERE. DEMOCRATS, FOR YEARS, HAVE RECOILED ANGRILY AT EVEN THE FAINTEST WHISPER ABOUT THEIR OWN PATRIOTISM, YET THEY SPENT THE LAST TWO YEARS CALLING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF RUSSIAN ASSETS. WITHOUT EVIDENCE. NOW THEY ARE GOING TO SAME ROUTE WITH MITCH McCONNELL. SECONDLY, I THINK WE KNOW WHAT THE RUSSIANS HAVE BEEN TRYING TO DO IS TO SO DIVISION AND FEAR AND DIVIDE OUR COUNTRY AGAINST ITSELF. SO YOU COULD ARGUE USING THE STANDARDS THAT PELOSI SEEMS TO BE DOING, SHE IS TAKING HER MARCHING ORDERS FROM THE KREMLIN, DOING EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT. WE CAN CALL HER NATALIA LUCY.>>Bill: MODERN-DAY McCARTHYISM. HE SAID IT IS TOXIC AND DAMAGIN DAMAGING. I BELIEVE THE ELECTION AND IN THE HOUSE DID NOT GET A SINGLE REPUBLICAN TO VOTE FOR THEM. EXPLAINING IT ON THE SENATE SIDE. MEANWHILE, TWO MEMBERS OF THE SQUAD MAY GO TO ISRAEL AND MAY NOT. KEVIN McCARTHY WAS WITH BRETT LAST NIGHT.>>THERE IS A NUMBER OF DEMOCRATS THAT STILL STAND WITH ISRAEL, BUT THE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATIC GROUPS, THEY HAVE A MUCH DIFFERENT BELIEF. THEY SHOULD HAVE COME WITH THEIR COLLEAGUES, COME TOGETHER, TRYING TO HAVE A MEETING WITH ISRAEL, WITH THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY, THOSE WHO ARE RUNNING AGAINST HIM AT THE SAME TIME. YOU WOULD GET EVERY VIEW THAT YOU WOULD WANT TO SEE IF YOU’D>>Bill: THEY WANT TO GO TO ISRAEL. I AM NOT SURE THAT NETANYAHU IS INCLINED TO ALLOW THEM INTO THE COUNTRY. ABOUT A WEEK AGO, THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WOULD SUPPORT BLOCKING THEIR ENTRANCE. WHAT COMES OF THIS, GUY?>>BILL, I THINK IT WOULD BE SHORTSIGHTED AND POLITICAL FOR ISRAEL TO DENY THEM ACCESS. THEY ARE AFTER ALL DULY ELECTED MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. I DO AGREE WITH THE CRITICISM THAT THEY COULD HAVE JUST GONE WITH THEIR COLLEAGUES AND GOT IN A VARIETY OF VIEWS ABOUT ISRAEL. THEY ARE CHOOSING TO GO A DIFFERENT DIRECTION. I DON’T THINK THAT’S A PRESENT. THEY BOTH DO YOU HAVE VERY SERIOUS ANTI-SEMITISM PROBLEM AS EVIDENCED BY THEIR OWN RHETORIC AND ASSOCIATION, AND THE ONE ARGUMENT THAT YOU COULD MAKE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS, IF YOU ARE NETANYAHU, LITERALLY JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO, BOTH OF THEM VOTED SPECIFICALLY TO BOYCOTT ISRAEL. STEP ONE OF A BOYCOTT, DON’T GO TO ISRAEL, RIGHT? THIS MOVEMENT, WHICH IS RADICAL, THAT THEY BOTH SUPPORT. IT HAS BEEN CALLED NEEDFUL AND DANGEROUS BY THE AFOREMENTIONED NANCY PELOSI, ANTI-SEMITIC BY CHUCK SCHUMER. SO I DO SEE ARGUMENTS ON BOTH SIDES. OVERALL, I THINK ISRAEL WILL PLAY INTO THE HANDS OF THE VICTIMHOOD POLITICS, SHOULD THEY DECIDE TO CLOSE THE DOOR.>>Bill: REACHED OUT TO THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT. “IF SHE MAKES A HUMANITARIAN REQUEST TO VISIT HER FAMILY, THE DECISION ON THE MATTER WILL BE CONSIDERED FAVORABLY. SO IN ALL LIKELIHOOD IF SHE WANTS TO GO, IT WILL HAPPEN.
