Republican Congressional Candidate West supports Israel’s refusal to allow Reps. Omar, Tlaib entry

Republican Candidate for Congress Amy Phan West (47th congressional district) denounced Rep. Alan Lowenthal’s unwavering support for anti-American, anti-Semitic Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib who on August 15 were denied entry to visit the State of Israel for a two-person congressional tour. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that both Omar and Tlaib wanted to use their visit to strengthen the boycott against the Jewish State.

Proof that Radical Socialist Tlaib’s objective is primarily to promote the financial destruction of the Jewish State with the BDS movement (boycott, divestment sanctions), the congresswoman turned down the Israeli government’s offer the next day to allow entry to visit relatives, including an elderly grandmother. Omar, a Somalian immigrant, had no standing for a humanitarian visit.

As would be expected, Radical Socialist Rep. Alan Lowenthal immediately sided with the two anti-American, anti-Semitic representatives.

West released the following statement –

I respect Israel as a sovereign nation who has the right to enforce its anti-BDS laws concerning those who wish to visit Israel and are a threat to its national security. Rather than bash Israel it would be refreshing to hear Rep. Lowenthal condemn BDS as it is also illegal in America. What is Lowenthal doing to protect Israel and the Jewish community in CA? Why has Lowenthal been so quick to condemn Trump for hypotheticals, but has said nothing about terror-tied CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) actually funding these Democrat politicians? Californians don’t need emotional finger-pointing. They need hard facts, clear positions on policies and solutions.

Following Israel’s offer to allow entry for Tlaib to visit relatives, West said, “If Omar and Tlaib, whose itinerary showed Palestine, not Israel, were truly planning a congressional tour of Israel, they would have traveled the week before with 41 other Democratic members of Congress. During that same time period, a large Republican congressional delegation of 31 representatives was also in Israel. The fact that Rep. Alan Lowenthal supports Radical Socialists Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib is a very sad commentary on how the 47th district is represented.”

As a legal naturalized citizen whose family fled communism after the Vietnam War, West is committed to keeping socialism away from America’s shores. While Socialist Democrat Rep. Lowenthal supports open borders, illegal immigration, gun control, impeaching President Trump, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, Medicare for All and late-term abortion, small business owner West focuses her goals on returning a conservative common sense focus to the 47th district.
