Following just hours after fellow Muslim Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan bashed Israel and defended the missile launching Palestinians on Twitter, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just couldn’t hold back from also proclaiming her support on Twitter for the Palestinian jihadis in Gaza bombarding Israel this weekend with over 600 missiles in a conflict that started Friday with Palestinians shooting and wounding two Israeli soldiers. Omar claimed Gaza was under “occupation” even though Israel left Gaza in 2005. It was as if Omar had said to Tlaib, “Hold my hijab and watch this!”
Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.
“How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends? The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.”

The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.

Conservatives on Twitter…pounced, to borrow a phrase from the mainstream media.
This is outright Hamas propaganda, rife with countless falsehoods. There is no occupation in Gaza. Your Hamas friends are responsible for the deaths of children. They were not protesters. Stop defending jihadi terrorists.

Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005. There is no occupation. The humanitarian crisis and the violence is all created by Hamas, a terrorist group which victimizes Israelis and Palestinians. Your attempt to blame Israel for the violence Hamas crates is telling and deplorable.

I feel like everyone just kind of slid right past the “real justice” part of her tweet.
