Tlaib's comments come as the Democratic congresswoman is caught in yet another controversy involving Israel

The 90-year-old grandmother of Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Muftia Tlaib, denounced President Donald Trump after Israel barred the congresswoman from along with fellow 'squad member Ilhan Omar  (D-Minn.) from visiting Israel.

Tlaib's grandmother spoke with Reuters from her garden in Beit Ur Al-Fauq, a village in the West Bank:

"Trump tells me I should be happy Rashida is not coming. May God ruin him," she said.

Tlaib's comments come as the Democratic congresswoman is caught in yet another controversy involving Israel.

After being barred from entering Israel, Omar and Tlaib kicked up a stink and demanded to be allowed to see her elderly grandmother

After being barred from entering Israel, Omar and Tlaib kicked up a stink and demanded to be allowed to see her elderly grandmother in Palestine on "humanitarian grounds."

The Israeli government approved this request and offered to allow Tlaib access.

But, despite getting what she wanted, Tlaib says she will not go to Israel to visit her ailing grandmother after all and rejected the Israeli interior ministry's offer.

Tlaib announced her change of heart on Twitter Friday morning:

"When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions."

Last month, U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution supporting the right to boycott Israel

"Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. It would kill a piece of me."

"I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in--fighting against racism, oppression & injustice."

As CNS News reported, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Thursday the itinerary provided by the two Democrats showed the purpose of their visit was to work against Israel's interests.

Last month, U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution supporting the right to boycott Israel as she compared the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.

The Democrat's resolution looks to push back against U.S. laws banning the boycott of Israel while supporting the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries.
