Young children’s lives are being put at risk by terrorists who want to send a message.
And an American congresswoman is helping them push their agenda.
Ilhan Omar put children at risk by spreading her terrorist propaganda.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has loudly been supporting Hamas terrorists who have been attacking Israel out of the Gaza Strip.
On Monday, Omar tweeted, “Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism.”
“Palestinians deserve protection,” she continued. “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’s tweet linked to a story that stated that the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza claimed that on Monday, 20 Palestinians were killed in Israeli air strikes, including nine children.
Later that day, Omar added:
“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,” Omar tweeted. “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.”
Omar stated on Tuesday, “Palestinian children deserve advocates for their humanity, safety and security. No exceptions.”
Palestinian children do deserve safety, but Hamas has admitted in the past that they fire off rockets from heavy civilian populations.
“The Israelis kept saying rockets were fired from schools or hospitals when in fact they were fired 200 or 300 meters (yards) away. Still, there were some mistakes made and they were quickly dealt with,” senior Hamas official Ghazi Hamad told the Associated Press in 2014.
In 2015, the New York Post reported, “Hamas stored mortars and other weapons in at least three UN schools during last summer’s war and fired rockets at Israel from two of them.”
But Omar says that the claim that Hamas’ use of “human shields” was a “myth.”
The people Omar should be condemning are terrorists who didn’t evacuate children.
“Islamic Jihad and Hamas, they have no problem putting the operation sites, the missile site, right next to a nursery or a hospital, or a residential building,” Sen. Marco Rubio said Wednesday.
But Hamas knows that in the West there are people like Ilhan Omar who will use the deaths of children to attack Israel.
Israel isn’t trying to kill civilians.
Over a thousand rockets have been fired into Israel over the course of the last week, leaving Israel with little choice but to confront their enemies.
Omar is right that “Palestinian children deserve advocates for their humanity, safety and security. No exceptions.” But she’s ignoring the people who put them in danger originally.
