Israel offered to let U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib into the occupied West Bank to visit her 90-year-old grandmother, but the congresswoman declined Friday because of conditions placed on her visit. “Visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions meant to humiliate me would break my grandmother’s heart,” the Democrat who represents a district in Michigan, said in a statement. Israel did not want Tlaib promoting boycotts of it in protest of the treatment of Palestinians there.
