Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib both supported Hamas and the other Gaza terrorists in their onslaught against Israel.

The United States declared Hamas a foreign terrorist organization in 1997. In 2007, Hamas declared its intention to destroy America and called on Allah to annihilate every American.

At press time, Palestinian terrorists from Hamas and Islamic Jihad have fired over 700 rockets into Israel in 48 hours, killing four and injuring at least 234, not including the trauma the rocket barrage the has brought upon the Israeli civilian population – including children.

In support of the Palestinian terrorists, Omar tweeted:

Cycle of violence? In the past year, Israel’s southern communities have endured a constant volley of incendiary devices – mainly balloons filled with explosives – from Gaza that have burned fields, greenhouses and homes, causing untold destruction.

Occupation and humanitarian crisis? Israel left Gaza in 2005, but has continued to supply goods, services and medical supplies to the people of the Gaza Strip who chose to be governed by Hamas in a democratic election. In the midst of this latest missile barrage, Israel still allowed a fuel shipment from Israel into Gaza “to avoid a humanitarian crisis.”

When Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005, communities left their hothouses intact, representing what could have been a thriving business for the Palestinian people as it had been for the former Jewish farmers of the Strip. The hothouses were promptly burnt down by baying mobs along with the synagogues that were also left behind.

Massive economic assistance by world powers, which has poured into Gaza by the millions over the years, has been hijacked by Hamas for its terror operations.

In supporting the Palestinian terrorists, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, for her part, saw fit to criticize a factual headline by The New York Times, historically and currently one of the most anti-Israel and anti-Semitic newspapers on record.

A “ceasefire” has supposedly been reached. That usually means that Israel ceases and Hamas fires. In this case, Islamic Jihad – a terror group in Gaza that is, for all practical purposes, a subsidiary of Iran – has said that they will not abide by any ceasefire agreement and has vowed to shoot missiles into Tel Aviv.

President Trump has offered his unwavering support to Israel and its right to defend itself.

At the same time, National Security Adviser John Bolton announced on Sunday, May 5, 2019, the second day of the conflict that America was deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the Middle East in response to a “number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” from Iran.

The White House said the move was intended “to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.”

Israel will prevail. However, in the following tweet, the president is right in his assessment for the people of Gaza, some of whom have been brave enough – most likely desperate enough – in recent weeks to protest living under the thumb of Hamas terrorists in the Strip.
