Mallory has been visiting sites across the region with a delegation from the US-based Center for Constitutional Rights
The CCR says the group “brought together mostly black and brown civil and human rights leaders working on domestic US justice issues who have not had an opportunity to visit Palestine and Israel.”
The trip, the organization said, “was planned to provide an opportunity to better understand the human rights situation in Israel and Palestine, including the history of systematic displacement and institutional racism, as well as the work of human rights defenders there.”
She has so far not tweeted anything else from the trip – bar one tweet complaining about two of her delegation being denied entry into Israel. Oh, and this:

This is the tweet she retweeted with her comment
Member of Israeli Knesset Ayman Odeh @AyOdeh and @TamikaDMallory getting into an animated exchange around the best interventions to reduce intra-communal violence. Is increasing police presence in our communities always the solution? #JusticeDelegation pic.twitter.com/hEwQQyEOLP

Ladies and gentlemen, Member of Knesset Ayman Odeh:
Ayman Odeh (Arabic: أيمن عودة, Hebrew: איימן עודה; born 1 January 1975) is an Israeli Arab lawyer and politician. He is a member of the Knesset and head of the Joint List, a political alliance of four Arab-dominated parties—Hadash, Balad, the United Arab List, and Ta’al.
Odeh is married to Nardine Aseli, a physician, and has three children.
Thank you Tamika for reminding everyone just how ridiculous are the accusations that Israel is an apartheid state. You might want to talk to Linda about it.
