Oddly enough, confirmation came from the unlikeliest of sources – failed Presidential candidate and nuke-lover Eric Swalwell.
Israeli law bars anyone advocating for BDS from entering Israel. But rather than respecting Israel’s right to govern itself, House Democrats have chosen instead of blow up the US-Israel relationship in retaliation over the alleged “mistreatment” of their new Democrat Leaders.
According to the Miami Herald, the Democrat House is “weighing action” against both the US Ambassador to Israel and the Israeli Ambassador to the US for the new Democrat Leaders being barred from visiting Israel.
Senior Democratic members of Congress are considering action against top emissaries of the Israeli government and the Trump administration for their roles in Israel’s decision to bar two House members from entering the country.
About a dozen lawmakers, including senior Jewish members, began discussions on Friday morning over ways to communicate a “deep lack of confidence and trust” in Israel’s ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, and the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, according to two sources familiar with the discussions.
The group is weighing issuing a statement of no confidence in Dermer and opening an inspector general investigation into Friedman’s conduct, the sources said.
This is a really short-sighted and vindictive thing to do.
