Ilhan Omar defends Palestinians after terrorists rain down rockets on Israel

Rep. Ilhan Omar appeared to take the side of Hamas and Islamic Jihad last night after terrorists fired hundreds of rockets at civilian targets in Israel by Hamas this weekend.

“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 Minnesota Democrat said in a tweet Sunday night.

Omar’s comments follow terrorists firing over 600 rockets into southern Israel, killing at least four Israelis. Israeli counterstrikes at what the Israel Defense Forces said were military targets killed at least a dozen Palestinians.

A pregnant Palestinian woman and her infant niece were among those killed but the Israelis said a misfired Palestinian rocket — not an Israeli airstrike — caused those deaths, disputing a Gaza Health Ministry statement that Israel was to blame.
