Ilhan Omar Accuses Israel of Terrorism for Retaliating Against Hamas Rockets

Republicans are calling Omar a Hamas propagandist.

More violence has erupted between the terrorist group Hamas and Israel.

Hamas reportedly fired 7 rockets at Jerusalem early Tuesday morning.

Israel responded by launching air strikes againjst several Hamas targets.

As usual, democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar is once again doubling as a propagandist for Hamas.

Omar labled Israel’s retaliatory strikes against Hamas as an act of “terrorism.”

Omar’s close colleagues echoed a similar sentiment.  

This has led to republicans accusing these radical leftists as propagandists for Hamas.

Our peers over at Fox News have the latest from congresswoman Omar:

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., accused Israel of "terrorism" following deadly air strikes in the Gaza Strip after Hamas reportedly launched seven rockets at Jerusalem.

"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 wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and other members of the progressive so-called "Squad" advocated for Palestinians after Israeli police and Palestinians clashed Friday at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, a major holy site sacred to Muslims and Jews in Jerusalem. Tlaib targeted some of her statements at President Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken, questioning the White House's reasoning for providing aid to Israel.

"I was 7 years old when I first prayed at the Al Aqsa with my sity [sic]. It's a sacred site for Muslims. This is equivalent to attacking the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians, or the Temple Mount for Jews. Israel attacks it during Ramadan. Where's the outrage @POTUS?" Tlaib wrote on Twitter.

"American taxpayer money is being used to commit human rights violations. Congress must condition the aid we send to Israel, and end it altogether if those conditions are not followed. Statements aren't working @SecBlinken. Enough is enough," she wrote in a separate tweet.

Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress.

Omar took a similar stance.

"This is happening as Muslims pray tarawih [and] tahajud in Palestine. Families who pray all night during Ramadan, the mosque is like home. Palestinians deserve to find refuge in a mosque and peace in Ramadan. Where is the media coverage? [Speak] up against Israeli occupation terror," Omar wrote on Twitter on Saturday along with a video of the violence.

Omar also accused Israel of "ethnic cleansing," citing a New York Times story about evictions of Arabs in East Jerusalem.

"This deputy mayor is describing ethnic cleansing here, yet everyone is the West is pretending that’s not what’s happening to Palestinians. It’s reprehensible," Omar wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

Ilhan Omar and Her Fellow Radical Colleagues Defended Hamas on Twitter

While Omar and her "squad" are using Hamas propaganda to villify Israel, Hamas uses civilians as human shields to hide behind.

Many people are now speaking out against the squad's propaganda.

Senator Ted Cruz even asked why Rep. Omar is acting as Press Secretary for a terrorist group.

The Daily Wire with Cruz's response to Omar:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ripped Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Monday after she accused Israel of committing terrorist acts while defending itself against Hamas.

Israel hit dozens of terror targets in the Gaza Strip on Monday night and Tuesday morning in response to “hundreds” of rocket attacks from Hamas. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) hit over 130 Hamas military installations, including weapons manufacturing sites and intelligence.

Omar said Israel’s retaliatory strikes were an act of terrorism.

“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,” Omar said. “It’s unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid.”

She later doubled down on the claim, saying: “Many will tell you Israel has a right to defend itself, to safety and security, but are silent on whether Palestinians have those rights too. Until we can defend the rights of Palestinians just as we do Israelis, we have no leg to stand on when it comes to justice or peace.”

Cruz hit back at Omar for comparing Israel to the terrorists against which Israel was defending itself.

“Why is a Member of Congress acting as the press secretary for Hamas? Does Biden agree?” Cruz tweeted.

Israel claims to have killed several Hamas terrorist leaders in retaliation.
