Thumbs Up Israel bars entry to Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar

This is just too fucking good...

Quote:JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel said Thursday that it will bar two Democratic congresswomen from entering the country ahead of a planned visit over their support for a Palestinian-led boycott movement, a decision announced shortly after President Donald Trump tweeted that it would “show great weakness” to allow them in.

The move to bar Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota from visiting appeared to be unprecedented. It marked a deep foray by Israel into America’s bitterly polarized politics and a sharp escalation of Israel’s campaign against the international boycott movement.

The two newly-elected Muslim members of Congress are outspoken critics of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and have repeatedly sparred with Trump over a range of issues. Tlaib’s family immigrated to the United States from the West Bank, where she still has close relatives.

They had planned to visit Jerusalem and the West Bank on a tour organized by a Palestinian organization aimed at highlighting the plight of the Palestinians. It was not immediately clear if they had planned to meet with Israeli officials, and spokespeople for the two congresswomen did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel is “open to critics and criticism,” except for those who advocate boycotts against it.

“Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are leading activists in promoting the legislation of boycotts against Israel in the American Congress,” Netanyahu charged. He said their itinerary “revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.”

Omar denounced the decision as “an affront” and “an insult to democratic values.”

“This is not a surprise given the public positions of Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has consistently resisted peace efforts, restricted the freedom of movement of Palestinians, limited public knowledge of the brutal realities of the occupation and aligned himself with Islamophobes like Donald Trump,” Omar said in a statement.

Shortly before the decision was announced, Trump had tweeted that “it would show great weakness” if Israel allowed them to visit. “They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds.” He went on to call the two congresswomen “a disgrace.”

The U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, endorsed the decision after it was made, saying Israel “has every right to protect its borders” against promoters of boycotts “in the same manner as it would bar entrants with more conventional weapons.”

Took advice and went to Dr and got testosterone checked again and was 985 at 7 am. I'm 39, 5' 11" 160 with a gut and have gotten soft as shit.

I have finally cut enough to start building, IMO. I have 8lbs JYM Protein sans soy and plan on going 2 scoops with milk x2 a day and that's about it.

I eat clean'ish and can eat same shit every day for years as some of you know. I will probably revert back to steel cut oats in the morning with a little brown sugar and cream. That's about it. Willing to take whatever advice equipment, regimen, supplements, diet, cardio, form, EVERYTHING. Right down to the prescription of what,  how much and when. Let me be your muse. I know there is a couple gym heads and some sports players who've been there done this.

I just want to be able to be strong again and feel good and never done free weights and was always a crossfitter who could just perform and never felt the urge to get a "beach body". I'm straight edge sober so now is the time. I will be sedentary from 9-5 but before and afterwards sky is the limit.

Lay it on me, my body is ready; well maybe not my wrists, my wrists skinny as fuck and I fucked one up skateboarding the other day like an asshole.

Anyone ever used the service? A quick browse looks like it's the fucking pits. Not sure I wanna stay in someone's bedroom in the basement for two months, but fuck if a two month lease on a suite in a hotel isn't $3k/mo.

Although I have $5k to use upfront for all the expenses and another $5k paid at the end, not sure what is of more value, sleeping in someone's dump for $1,100/mo or spending the $3,400/mo for a luxury type place with a kitchenette and all the trimmings.

Figure I could still burn $2k on clothing and another $2k on food. Driving out there so "travel" ain't shit. Location I need is between Denver and Boulder. Finding a "2 month lease" was a lot harder than I thought originally.

Sure, I've been here, there and everywhere, but there is something to be said for peace and serenity.

Thoughts?
