Omar Claims Israel is Occupying Gaza
In a social media post Sunday, Rep. Ilhan Omar falsely referred to Gaza as “occupied” by Israel, as Palestinian terrorists rained hundreds of rockets on Israeli civilian population centers, killing four.
Omar, who supports the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement and who has a long history of anti-Semitic rhetoric, tweeted about the region’s “cycle of violence” while clearly blaming Israel.
“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 wrote. “The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.”
