Denying Rashida Tlaib entry won't make her dishonesty go away

...Let’s start with the organization sponsoring the trip. Miftah, a Palestinian advocacy group, has been linked to terrorist organizations in the region and regularly promotes anti-Semitic doctrines, like the “blood libel,” which claims “the Jews used the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover.”

Miftah also supports Palestinian terrorists, such as Wafa Idrees, one of the first female Palestinian suicide bombers who blew herself up and killed at least one, injuring 150 others. In a January 2017 interview, founder and chair of the Miftah board of directors Hanan Ashrawi described Idrees as “the beginning of a string of Palestinian women dedicated to sacrificing their lives of the cause.”

It gets worse. Miftah published a Neo-Nazi article that describes a “white racist” as “any racially conscious White person who looks askance at miscegenation or at the rapidly darkening racial situation in America.” It goes on to claim Jews control the media in America and thus public opinion. “And who are these all-powerful masters of the media?” asks the author “As we shall see, to a very large extent they are Jews. … The preponderance of Jews in the media is so overwhelming, however, that we are obliged to assume that it is due to more than mere happenstance.”
