Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar is a mess.
She is constantly finding herself under fire for insane and offensive statements.
And things just got worse for her after she said something insane proving she knows nothing.
Over the weekend, the state of Israel was under one of the worst attacks against them in a very long time.
Hundreds of rockets from Palestine were flying into the Jewish state in a horrifying and vicious attack.
Despite this being a clear attack on the United State’s strongest ally, most Democrats have been silent on it.
But Ilhan Omar wasn’t, instead choosing to tweet in support of the Palestinian terrorists, and wrongly referring to Gaza as occupied.
“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.”
In her tweet, the “protesters” shot refer to violent militants attempting to storm Israel’s border in a violent attack.
Those “protests” were organized by Hamas, a terrorist organization who publicly calls for the elimination of Israel.
But those claims aren’t even the most ridiculous she makes.
Her claim that Gaza is under occupation is completely false.
Israel has not had any troops in Gaza since 2005 when their withdrawal was ordered in hopes that Palestinians would invest in the economy and work towards peace.
Instead, Hamas used Israel’s withdrawal of troops to take over the territory in a violent coup against Palestinian authorities in 2007.
Since then, Gaza has been a hotbed of Islamic terror, and the base of operations of attacks on Israel.
Hamas regularly uses civilian buildings, including schools and hospitals to launch attacks on Israel, so that any retaliation can look as though Israel is attacking schools and hospitals.
Hamas also has a collection of tunnels into Israel they use to kidnap Israeli soldiers.
The claim that Gaza is under occupation by anybody besides Hamas terrorists is not only wrong, but is an extremely dangerous point for an elected official to make.
Not only is Omar a Congresswoman, but she is on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which regularly makes decisions relating to Israel.
There have been calls for months to remove Omar from the committee that have largely gone on deaf ears, considering Nancy Pelosi makes those decisions as Speaker of the House.
Those calls are in response to anti-Semitic tweets from Omar, where she claims that U.S. representatives who support Israel have dual loyalty to two different countries.
Her claim is so extreme that it gained her the endorsement of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, who is one of the most rabid racists in America today.
This alone should be enough to expel her for the committee.
Do you think Ilhan Omar should lose her seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee?
