Axios: Scoop: Inside Israel’s sensitive preparations for visit of Omar and Tlaib

Israel is preparing for the possibility that Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who are expected to arrive in the country on Friday, will want to visit the Temple Mount in Jerusalem together with representatives of the Palestinian Authority, Israeli officials tell me.

The big picture: Israel’s ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, announced several weeks ago that out of respect for the U.S. Congress, Reps. Omar and Tlaib would be allowed to enter Israel despite their support for the BDS movement to boycott Israel. As Axios reported on Saturday, President Trump was disappointed in the decision to allow them to enter the country.


WNU Editor: Here is an easy prediction. When they are in Israel they are going to want to visit the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif, and their visit will in the news cycle on that day.
