Republicans Bash Omar for ‘Defending Terrorists’ Amid Gaza Conflict

Republican members of the House were quick to criticize Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her recent comments regarding the violence that erupted over the weekend in Gaza.

“How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?” Omar tweeted Sunday. “The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.”

Over the weekend, “some 700 rockets have been fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip since the security situation escalated over the weekend,” according to the Jerusalem Post. The conflict resulted in four confirmed deaths and dozens of injuries.

Chair of the House Republican Conference, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), quickly took to Twitter to bash Omar for defending Hamas.

“1. Hamas controls Gaza. 2. Hamas is firing rockets at civilians in Israel. 3. @IlhanMN is defending Hamas,” Cheney tweeted. “Real question is how many times will @IlhanMN rush to the defense of terrorists?”

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) quickly retweeted Cheney.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley asked Omar on Twitter what she thought should be done about Hamas, pointing out they are the ones responsible for the attacks.

President Trump’s son Donald Trump, Jr. also joined in on the criticism of Omar on Twitter.
