Ilhan Omar Says It Is An ‘Act Of Terrorism’ For Israel To Defend Itself From Hamas Rocket Attacks
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar accused Israel of terrorism for responding to a barrage of rocket fire from the terrorist organization Hamas.
“Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism. Palestinians deserve protection. Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don’t exist to protect Palestinian civilians. It’s unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid,” Omar said in Monday afternoon tweet.
Tensions have skyrocketed between Israelis and Palestinians lately due to a decades-long court battle over the legal ownership rights of the Sheikh Jarrah apartments in East Jerusalem.
Hamas, a U.S., and European Union designated terrorist organization that governs the Gaza strip, fired 150 rockets into Israel on Monday evening after the terror group gave Israel a 6 p.m. local time ultimatum to remove troops from the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the site of violent riots over the weekend.
The rocket fire forced cities in Southern Israel to lock down and the Knesset to be temporarily evacuated.
Israel responded to the rocket attacks by launching retaliatory airstrikes on Hamas targets in Gaza.
Omar also accused Israel in a Sunday tweet of committing “ethnic cleansing” due to the legal fight, which would evict the Palestinian residents from the apartment complex and return it to the Jewish families that were forced out by the Jordanians in the aftermath of the 1948 War for Independence.
Omar has come under fire several times during her career in Congress for strong anti-Israel statements many of which have resulted in accusations of anti-Semitism.
Hamas continues to fire rockets into Israel as of 3 a.m. yesterday, and has picked up the volume of attacks last night. .
It seems that Ilhan thinks that Israel should deal with Hamas like the U.S. deals with the domestic terrorist Black Lives Matter. They shoot at people, riot, burn stores, after looting them, and nothing is done. If they shoot at police and are shot, the community acts like they are saints and sets off on another riot.
Ilhan, I hate to break it to you, Israel does not suffer the mass mental defect known as Liberal thinking the way our country does, if you fire rockets at them, they will strike back.
Also, kicking people out of apartments that refuse to pay rent, that is not ethnic cleansing, well unless your name is Ilhan and you do nothing but play the perpetual victim, it is what landlords do all over the world.
What is worse, one of the representatives from my state, Wisconsin, is openly siding with her. Goes to show Democrats don’t care about facts, only the narrative.
We at 0censor had no problem with this:
I guess one should not be surprised; the Democrats all last year made excuses while BLM and Antifa rioted, looted, and burned buildings. It seems like now they think other nations should stupidly follow along with this insanity.
