"It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds," Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

This isn't just some dude, this is The President of the United States. How can anyone think this is nothing but seditious for him to take the side of a foreign government over members of the US Congress?

Israel is no friend to the American people

They eagerly take your tax dollars without discrimination but discriminate against duly elected representatives

Why is Pres Trump sticking his nose into Israel's internal affairs?

Why is Pres Trump publicly and loudly saying this to the government of another country about Members of the US Congress?

"The decision was announced moments after President Trump tweeted that it would show "great weakness" for Israel to allow the two congresswomen into the country, calling them a "disgrace."

My, how Jane Fondaesque. What a ------- clown.

And yesterday, BEFORE Trump tweeted that Israel would "look weak" if it allowed the two Congresswomen to enter the country, the Israeli ambassador to the US had promised that they would not deny entry to any member of Congress.

@#7 ... So now two congresswomen are "America"? ...

So, you're OK with what Pres Trump did?

No. I was questioning the headline, that is all.

They are duly elected Representatives. Who do they represent?

C'mon, you know the SOP. There's no possible defense of Trump's behavior so it's off to semantics we go.

It's not a technique I agree with at all. I'm completely anti-semantic.

Lemme see if I have this right.

You're not OK with what Pres Trump did. But you stay quiet about that.

Instead you pick a nit about the headline.

Did I get that right?

Until he gets in the voting booth. Then he speaks volumes.

That makes Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham "America"

That can only mean that Laura views Donald Trump as "America"!

Actually they are America when they go to foreign countries and represent us. The POTUS IS America on the world stage because he or she is our highest leader that represents the whole country.

Trump reminds me of a Randy Newman song featuring Lester Mattox.

"Last night I saw Lester Maddox on a TV show
With some smart a** New York Jew
And the Jew laughed at Lester Maddox
And the audience laughed at Lester Maddox too
Well he may be a fool but he's our fool"

Lamp,

I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this which is why I only picked a nit about the headline.

You'll be happy to know then that they're not going to be going to said foreign country to represent us, so they are safely not America at this time.
(well, one of them isn't)

I'm mad about it and you should be as well if you had any common decency(which you don't) By Israel snubbing them they are by extension snubbing America.

America isn't a monolith. It's made up of a multitude of people with a multitude of ideas. Part of America says that Israel should feel fully proper in rejecting any applicant for entry who proposes injury to Israel. Israel is not snubbing America when they follow the advice of some of America.

Look, I don't care about the color of their skin, the content of their character, their creed, religion, national origian, gender, sexuality, none of it. If any American is calling for injury to Israel, it is entirely proper for Israel to reject their requet for entry.

Now that we've shown that this isn't 'by extension snubbing America', was that your last desperate grasp at outrage?

There's something I'd like to know about these women if we could get an honest answer.

Do they see themselves are Americans who are Muslim or Muslims who are American.

Which identity do they identify with first? American or Muslim.

Based on history and what we know of them, I would suspect they see themselves as Muslims first.

That being the case the fact they are American takes a back seat to their religious views.

As Muslims we have a pretty good idea how these women feel about Jews and Israel is a Jewish nation.

I understand how atheists laugh and disrespect people who have religious viewpoints but this is no laughing matter.
