As the dust settles over the planned, canceled, re-scheduled and then canceled-again trip to Israel by Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, two things come to mind offering perspectives on how this played out.

If I were Israel’s Prime Minister, I’d have let repugnant US Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib come to Israel, despite their hateful agenda and itinerary that would have been an unabashed Anti-Israel Propaganda Tour.  Israel is a strong country, vibrant democracy, and can stand up to the debate.  There would have been no problem calling them out and challenging …

Eid al-Adha, also referred to as the “Festival of the Sacrifice”, is the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year, and is considered the holier of the two.

July 17, 2019 — Gazan terror organizations are looking into armed drones and sea-based commando cells, while concentrating fire at Israel’s Iron Dome defense system to overwhelm it.
