Tlaib says Netanyahu took 'page out of Trump's book'

Democratic Muslim-American congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar told reporters in Minnesota on Monday that Israel's move to restrict their travel in the region pits Muslim and Jewish people against one another.

Tlaib says Netanyahu took 'page out of Trump's book'

Tlaib is at the center of a controversy that has drawn Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu together against U.S. Democrats.

Last Thursday, bowing to pressure from Trump, Israel barred a visit by Tlaib and fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar that it had initially said it would allow.

The next day, Israel said it would let Tlaib visit her family in the West Bank on humanitarian grounds - but Tlaib rejected the offer, saying that Israel had imposed restrictions meant to humiliate her.
