He’s 100% correct…
Regardless of all the caterwauling about “the sake of democracy”, countries have every right to ban individuals they deem undesirable, they’ve been doing it for centuries. This is no different.
Graham backs Israel’s decision on Tlaib and Omar
South Carolina Senator: If you openly joined an international movement to destroy the state of Israel, then you’ll suffer the consequences.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Thursday expressed support for Israel’s decision to bar Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) from entering the nation over their support for a boycott of Israel.
“They are duly elected members of Congress, I get that, but they are openly supporting the BDS movement which would be an economic boycott of the state of Israel and basically destroy the state, so I understand both sides of the story here,” Graham told WLTX TV.
Asked if he thought it was a mistake on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s part to change his position on banning the two after initially saying the lawmakers would be allowed in, Graham said “probably not” in terms of Israeli politics.
“From my point of view, there have got to be consequences to your behavior. If you openly joined an international movement to destroy the state of Israel, then you’ll suffer the consequences,” he added.
