House GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., defended Israel on Thursday and blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., over “phony” claims that the nation discriminated against her colleagues.
She was responding to a tweet in which Ocasio-Cortez implied that Israel was sexist or Islamophobic when it banned Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., from entering the country.
The article goes on to state the following:
“MoC are frequently asked to visit Israel to ‘see things for ourselves,’” she said, using an acronym for “members of Congress.” “But Netanyahu choosing to ban the only 2 Muslim women in Congress from entering tells the US that only *some* Americans are welcome to Israel, not all,” she added.

Cheney tweeted in response, “The fact that they are Muslim women has zero to do with this. The issue is their vile anti-Semitism and support of a movement dedicated to the destruction of the state of Israel. And @AOC should realize she hurts all women every time she claims phony gender discrimination.”
The fact that they are Muslim women has zero to do with this.
