NEW: Rep. Ilhan Omar responds to Israel's decision to deny her and Rep. Rashida Tlaib entry to the country: "Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected Members of Congress." https://t.co/f4S7uUdxiF pic.twitter.com/1C66Dn6nq3

Except, of course, that’s a bunch of malarkey.
Ilhan Omar is lying
There are 50 Muslim majority nations globally
5 of the 7 nations on the travel ban list are Muslim majority nations
90% of the Muslim majority nations are not impacted by the ban
There is no “Muslim ban”
Also, Israel is home to nearly 2 million Muslims https://t.co/Lm1swzJE1E

Sigh SCOTUS ruling (pre-Kavanaugh btw) ruled the travel ban is not a Muslim ban since only 8 PERCENT of the world’s Muslim population is affected. pic.twitter.com/3w5K7KurYY

1. 13 Muslim countries ban all Israeli citizens from entering, 8 ban anyone who has even VISITED Israel. That’s a real religiously motivated ban.
2. There is no Trump Muslim ban, under the travel ban over 90% of the global Muslim population has been able to travel here.

And of course, it has nothing at all to do with Omar and Tlaib’s support of the boycott movement against Israel as well as their anti-Semitic statements…
