Netanyahu’s Election Rival Gantz Says He Would Have Allowed Omar Into Israel

Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib should have been allowed into Israel, Blue and White candidate for prime minister Benny Gantz said Monday.

“I think it was a mistake not to let [Omar and Tlaib] in, because we’re strong enough to let people see with their own eyes,” Gantz said in English at a Tel Aviv International Salon event. “If you’re not a Saudi [billionaire] the best place to be an Arab in the Middle East is Israel, and the second-best is the West Bank.”

Gantz said that “anyone who cooperates with BDS is operating against Israel and it is a form of antisemitism.”
