ZOA Fact-Checks Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib’s Press Conference: ‘Egregious Lies’ | Breitbart

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), the oldest pro-Israel group in the U.S., released a comprehensive takedown of the press conference Monday by Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MN), who were denied permission to enter Israel last week en route to a tour that was to be led by a radical Palestinian organization.

Israel turned Omar and Tlaib away because they support the anti-Israel “boycott, divestment, sanctions” (BDS) movement, which aims to choke Israel economically. The Israeli government granted Tlaib a humanitarian visa to visit her grandmother in a Palestinian village, but Tlaib canceled her trip because a condition of her visit was that she not advocate for a boycott of Israel.
