Rep.
Rashida Tlaib will forgo a trip to see her aging grandmother in the
West Bank after the Israeli government said it would allow a visit on
“humanitarian” grounds. In a reversal, Tlaib rejected the
conditions laid out by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for
the humanitarian visit, namely, that she not broadcast her support
for boycotting Israel over its actions against Palestinians during
her stay. Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, was
permitted to visit family in the village of Beit Ur al-Fouqa,
including her “sity,” only if she agreed to those terms.
