Thursday morning, the president of the United States tweeted that Israel would be weak if they allowed Reps Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib to visit the country. The nation of Israel, apparently easily manipulated, almost instantly jumped at Trump’s white nationalist call for the female Muslim Reps to be banned from doing their jobs.
Now, AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) has tweeted a response to Israel’s decision that has a lot of people on the internet letting their racist flags fly. This is what they posted below:
We disagree with Reps. Omar and Tlaib’s support for the anti-Israel and anti-peace BDS movement, along with Rep. Tlaib’s calls for a one-state solution. We also believe every member of Congress should be able to visit and experience our democratic ally Israel firsthand.

The volatility against the Muslim Reps was seen instantly in the comments left on the tweet. We saved all the reactions for you below:
