Don't worry @RepTedDeutch, @hrw @btselem and #desmondtutu have also called Israel and apartheid state. She's not the only one who feels this way.

That is EXACTLY what Israel is, @RepTedDeutch. If you can't see that, you probably shouldn't be representing anyone.

How very democratic to say he can't "allow" one of his fellow representatives to express her opinion because he disagrees with it. #Rude Never knew she needed your permission to speak there, sir.

It isn't even an opinion though, it quite literally fits the definition of apartheid

Odd he thinks he has the power to allow or not allow one of his colleagues to say anything.
